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!
