At Barrow Brain and Spine, you’re in the hands of the world’s foremost team of neurosurgeons. Together, through research, education, technology, and innovation, we’re pushing the boundaries of medicine with one common goal: helping our patients get well. Few things in life are as stressful as a complex tumor or condition diagnosis. We’re uniquely prepared to help ease you through the process by treating you with individualized time, care, and attention. We’re committed to providing you with sound medical options based on your specific condition. Rely on our physicians, clinical support team, and staff to guide you from anxious to confident in your treatment plan. You’re one of the most important members of your recovery team — and we want you to feel a sense of understanding and ownership in that process.
It’s not uncommon for your physician to cover a wide array of important, often complex, information during your visit — in fact, 80% of patients struggle to recall details of their visit after the fact. Understanding the vital need for clear communication, Dr. Randall Porter created The Medical Memory program. This program provides you with a video recording of your in-office visit. It’s a free recording (available upon request) that you can access at home whenever you need. It’s also ideal for sharing with family, friends, and other caretakers that have a vested interest in your recovery.
