I highly recommend Dr. Potter. I visited with Dr. Potter regarding my weight in the fall of 2017. After I committed to the sleeve surgery his office worked with me for 8 months preparing me for surgery in the summer of 2018. Dr. Ruthie is amazing too in preparation for the surgery. 1 year later I’m a 105 pounds less and have my amazing life back. I feel better I ride bike because I enjoy it. I eat what I can on my plan. I’m happy thankful and am so grateful to work with Dr. Potter on this healthy life change. Thank you Dr.Potter and team!

Dr. Potter needs to find a better anesthesiologist to work with, someone who can provide re-assurance to your patients, not everyone has had good experiences with surgeries and out patient procedures. I opologize for being frank with him what ever his name might be, I didn't catch it, BUT the experience this morning I will not forgot nor will I reschedule. He was rude, he wasn't really listening to me, and he failed to recognise my fear of being put under.

Awesome Dr.!!! I could not have asked for a better team for my care. From diagnosis to after care I had total confidence in all of Dr. Potter's recommendations and believe my quick recovery was thanks to him.

Stay away from this center! Dr. Potter preformed surgery on me in Feb 2014. He really screwed me up, I have ugly nasty scars and I've had to have 5 surgeries since then to repair his screw ups. I've had one infection after another, because of his crappy techniques. PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM HIS CLINIC!!!

Dr Potter saved my life. He is caring and very experienced with difficult situations. His partner Dr Arnold is extremely talented as well. I would recommend these two surgeons to my own loved ones.

Dr. Potter is a wonderful caring Doctor! The way he explained what he was gonna do through my surgery to myself and to my family. He asked my family if they had concerns...You dont see to many Dr.'s that ask this to family members and I work in health care! He was always by myside! When other surgeons would not help me with the pain and losing all the weight I did on my own and than end up with admoninal hernia he was there for me! I wish I could give him Top Best Doctor of AZ!
