What a cold hearted doctor....a one dr facility, if you request to see her and not the PA, they make you leave the practice, no matter how sick you are. Her PA, Melanie Leberman, is a know it all, wont listen PA, stay away from this practice, there are plenty of good drs out there, NOT THIS ONE

I have developed a good relationship with Dr Potempa over the past few years. I trust her judgement in my care and of the referrals she has made. When I am ill, I call and if needed she tries to get me in the same day or the next morning. The only issue I've ever had is she is so busy that I sometimes see an assistant.

After your first visit, you will be assigned a PA, you will never be able to see the dr again. If you request an apt with the DR only, they will call you and tell you that you have to find a new MD. Don't waste your time here.

Never able to see her, only the nurse practitioner who is not qualified to replace the dr. Don't ask questions, they make you leave the practice!
