Dr. Potter performed surgery on my right hand. He is the best!!
in Charlottesville, VA |
I broke my collarbone in a bike race after colliding with a barrier at ~30 mph. Broken into three places, Dr Potter plated, screwed, and even "lassoed" a piece of bone, all back into place. He was able repair the bone the same day he saw me. Within 2 days, I was able to perform 85% of normal tasks. By week 4, I was back carrying camera equipment for work with no problem. By week 6, I was 100% back to normal. The entire nursing staff was awesome. Everyone was clear, quick, and did a great job!
