Dr.Potter seems to be a very professional individual in terms of his interaction with me as a patient. He is attentive, explains the issues with an absolute clarity and confidence. I am also impressed with the supportive approach of his other staffs as well during my surgery.

Such a nice caring man. I have had to see Dr. Potter 3-4 times in the last few years for a repeated medical problem. He is excellent in his care and respect for patients. All the nurses who assist him are super nice as well. Good guy!
