Great Doctor - I see him for liver related issues and he is very knowledgeable about his field. He even helped me come off medication that I no longer needed! Glad I asked to be his patient!!! He also works well with my other doctors for an overall complete medical picture.

This was only my second time seeing Dr. Potosky. There was no wait (I was on time), and he is so thorough. I had seen another Dr. for years, with the same issue. Been under his care for about 6 months, and what he is doing, is working!!

Dr.Potosky is the very finest doctor. There aren’t many like him. He is extremely thorough, knowledgeable, compassionate, and responsive. I never have to wait long for a return answer on the portal and immediately he never leaves you guessing about any test results. As soon as he receives the results, he is in contact with you. No need to wait until your next appointment to receive results. He has my utmost trust and I followed him from his previous location.

Dr. Potosky had clearly reviewed my chart and all my prior test results before coming in to meet with me for the first time. In my experience, this doesn't always happen with doctors. He was well informed about my case and clearly explained the possible causes for my high liver enzymes. He wasn't an alarmist and recommended we monitor the situation with further labs. He clearly explained what he would likely recommend based on my lab results. Upon receiving my lab results, he notified me in a

Dr Potosky treated my nephew, Paris Ruby, for severe liver damage for several years before he died of pancreatic cancer. The compassion and excellent care he provided is something I haven't seen in any other medical practioneer in my 84 years. I consider him a personal friend and would like to find someone like him as my physician. Thank you, Darryn. Uncle Bill
