Dr. Potts and his staff are fantastic. I had surgery but before he would do the surgery he wanted me to quit smoking which would give me a better outcome with healing. I quit smoking and am so glad I did! Not only was he taking care of my cervical spine but he was concerned about my overall health. I loved his approach and his sense of humor; he puts you at ease and spent plenty of time giving me choices and explaining what he would do in surgery. I highly recommend Dr. Potts.

I had been diagnosed with severe spinal stenosis. I had discussed my situation with 2 other surgeons in Florida and I had developed a state of confusion and disappointment. After talking with Dr Potts I regained my confidence and hope. He performed the complex procedure on 6/2/2016 by correcting the very severe stenosis in two areas of the lower back L3-L4 & L4-L5 with only one 2 cut. I had my 30 day F/U Appt. today and everything is great. Without any exaggeration, he is a Supper Doctor.
