Patient Reviews (1)
I spent a ton of money out of pocket for testing, he refused to give my test results until ALL of the results came in. I called 2 months latter at least 15 times to get the results and no one ever picks up the phone. I assumed the results were clear since they never reached out. I had a new dr pull records from one of the labs and I tested polite for Lyme! Dr potkin and his staff are not capiable of caring for other people's health.
