Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Potts IV "I believe that most of medicine is designed to put out fires (ie treat once there is a problem). My philosophy is to prevent issues or treat aggressively to prevent those problems. Through blood testing and other testing I can determine your risks for diabetes, heart disease and a number of other problems that we can treat with diet, exercise and medication to keep you from having those emergencies."
