Patient Comments (9)
I have been with this practice for quite a while. Recently my experiences have gone downhill. Wait times have gone up and I have far less confidence as a patient that this practice is knowledgeable in the slightest. In trying to the office, I’m now on the third day of waiting to hear back from someone in regards to a question I had about my medication. I have called the office twice now. I will be switching to a different primary care doctor shortly after multiple bad experiences.
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!

Extremely thorough. Willing to answer questions. She is not intimidated by informed patients. Very accessible. Her nurse Lori rocks!! My whole family she's her.
