in Boiling Springs, SC |
Dr Potes was recommended by two sources. I had been a patient for two years after my initial consultation. He ordered appropriate testing for my situation, yet never revealed findings, follow-ups were not helpful. The waiting room waits were always long, and the office visits always short. The treatment was (in my opinion) antiquated; although Dr. Potes offered to transfer to another Dr. in another city that uses experimental treatments. Not a happy 2yr experience. God bless you!

Didn't listen to what my caregiver had to say.
in Chesnee, SC |
Office was extremely crowded, I sat there 1 hour 45 minutes for my appt. I noticed others being called back (there are 2 doctors there) arriving after me. I felt he rushed through my appt. to get out of the office.....I was told he had an emergency at the hospital.
