While Dr Potoczak is a good doctor, his staff is a nightmare. Twice I was left alone in the waiting area, totally forgotten. When I told Dr Potoczak, he didn't believe it. They are chronically behind; plan on waiting for at least an hour or more. He is also very overtly political; much of it displayed on waiting area bulletin boards. I stopped going there entirely.
Thought he would be my doctor for the rest of my life,,until he has me down on all my medical records as being a high risk medication use, which I'm not at all!!!!I now have degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis and bulging disc's in my back and cannot be treated because of his ignorance!!
