My one and only visit was unprofessional from the start. Do yourself a favor and don’t dark and his doorstep. Asked personal probing questions during an exam. Made me feel very uncomfortable.

I would never recommend this doctor to anyone. Unprofessional, very rude and inconsiderate. Only choose "Dr." Potter if you are looking for a terrible experience. If there could be negative stars for "providers listening and understanding" I would put -5 stars, but that is not possible. Zero stars.

I went to see Dr. Potter a few months ago. I was suffering with a terrible case of rosacea and nothing was working. At my first visit he prescribed me a lotion that had two products in it and NO oral antibiotics which for me was always just a quick fix and when I was done eventually it always came back! Well in 1 week I saw a difference and now it is gone! I am so happy again and no longer embarrassed of my appearance. Go see Dr. Potter he really cares and takes his time to listen.
