Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I can’t judge competence, so this is based solely on my interaction as a patient. This doctor has a history of saying/doing things most would consider strange/inappropriate for a medical doctor. The degree of this strangeness would lead me to guess there may be some underlying condition making it difficult for the doctor to read social queues. If there were another gastroenterologist in the area, which there is not, I’d certainly chose that other doctor.

Dr. Potash is a helpful Dr. and makes my son feel quite comfortable, esp. since my son is a challenged adult. He has put my mind at ease in the tests he has performed and the knowledge he shares with us both. I would recommend Dr. Potash to anyone in need of a Dr. in this field.
