Dr. Potter spent time with me to explain my injury and my options. Not only worked on my injury, but also had me work with PT to avoid future problems. Great bed bed aide manner and compassionate. Being a runner, it is great that he has a background in sports.

I was having bad pain on my shoulders and my Neck. I really wanted him to take a look at it. I also wanted an X-ray or MRI, I didn’t get a chance to get one. The doctors office called stating that my insurance doesn’t cover MRI’s this wasn’t true because I called my insurance and confirm. Sentara Hospits stated that I have sciatica, Dr Potter didn’t even check that. My time got wasted today

Dr. Potter is my main Sports medicine Doctor for whatever troubles me. From a broken shoulder to shin splints he has helped to keep me out of surgery. For over 15 years and multiple office buildings I have followed. Lol Great physician!
