Patient Comments (4)
in Verona, WI |
Dr. Potter was incredibly patient with all my questions leading up to my cataract surgery. My result post-surgery is excellent. I have no qualms about recommending her to family and friends.
in Madison, WI |
Dr. Potter is very thorough and professional. She takes a lot of time in consultations and is willing to listen and answer each question. The information, instructions and follow up exams for cataract surgery were very specific and it is clear she is concerned for the each patient's outcome. The surgery itself was easy and painless; everything was explained in advance, and any anxiety taken care of. The result was so wonderful, I regret not doing it sooner. It's far easier than a colonoscopy!

This doctor does not do thorough refractions. Nor does she project a compassionate bedside manner. Nor recommended.
in Madison, WI |
Dr. Potter got me over my high level of anxiety about cataract surgery and made me feel as if I were the only patient she was treating. Having feared the first procedure, I am now eager to have the cataract removed from my other eye. Dr. Potter is a consummate professional who brings a personal touch to a process that can be intimidating. The results of my surgery are nothing short of amazing.
