Listened to my concerns, even the new issues presented during my visit; he addressed them all in my appointment. His experience allows him to be not only efficient but treatment was painless and I believe will render desired results. Now, I just have to wait for it all to settle in.

I have been seeing Dr. Potozkin for years. He has so much knowledge in several aspects of dermatology, but I trust him explicitly with my skin checks. Having a history of basal cells, I want a doctor who can accurately diagnose and treat most effectively, with as little intervention as possible. He listens to what I say and tries to treat me with the best modalities, for my particular situation.
