As an experienced nurse, Shirley K. knew that several years of knee pain indicated something was amiss. Finding no luck with other orthopedic physicians, Shirley stumbled across Dr. Eric Porritt in a web search and made an appointment.  After being informed she would need a knee replacement, she underwent surgery and couldn’t be happier with the results.

“I feel at ease in his care and could not ask for a better doctor. He is easy to talk to and makes you feel comfortable. Dr. Porritt is knowledgeable and stays up to date on all the newest technology. Additionally, his office staff is wonderful. I feel like I can call them at any time with questions or concerns.”

Dr. Porritt even took time out of his personal vacation to phone the North Denver Bone and Joint Specialists office for Shirley’s test results. He then spoke with Shirley personally to explain the results and next steps.

“I appreciate him calling to let me know the test results; not many doctors would do that. He knew the results were important to me, and it alleviated my fear.”

She went back to work soon after the procedure was completed and now has minimal pain in her left knee. She can traverse stairs and has regained strength and range of motion in her knee. In fact, the result has been so positive that she also plans to have surgery on her right knee later this year.
