Dr. Pouratian has, is and will continue to be my go to source for Neurosurgical referrals and consultations. Little known facts about him, he has scored the highest score ever (in U.S. History) on the neurosurgery national exam. Not only is his mastery of his field as good as it gets, but his ability to relate to patients. Without fail, patients have only been grateful for their referral to Dr. Pouratian both in regards to the relationship he carries with them, as well as the care he delivers. He will continue to be my go to referral source for neursurgical diseases.
