What People Say About Dr. Ronald Potkul, MD

What a friendly, knowledgeable Dr. Dr. Potkul and his team of residents and nurses did a fantastic job taking care of me from day 1. I had an ovary with endometriosis on it. I was referred to him because I had a cancer test come back a bit high. I was nervous about having to see an oncologist, but Dr. Potkul set me at ease right away. I could tell he knew what to do and that he cared about my wellbeing. I ended up having laparoscopic surgery to remove one ovary. Just as he suspected it was only endometriosis. I had very little pain and healed fast after surgery. Thank you to Dr. Potkul and his great residents and nurses! Job well done!

I received excellent advice and care from Dr Ronald Potkul. I was fortunate to have Dr Potkul who was all focused on doing his job correctly and not on unnecessary follow ups. I was so afraid that I might have cancer because of the opinions and incomplete procedures by 2 other gynecologists. Dr Potkul opinion was assuring and right that my condition was not cancerous. However after 1 year I did have the surgery. Excellent care by Dr Potkul and he was so right that my condition was not cancerous.

Dr. Potkul is amazing! When I was diagnosed with endometrial cancer in 2015, he was direct and informative when presenting treatment options. He fully discussed staging and prognosis. From my first visit, I was confident that I had made the right decision by choosing him as my physician. From that day on, Dr. Potkul's support has never waivered. He gave me my life back.

Dr Potkul and staff made a very scary situation turn out with an outcome that other doctors didn't think was possible. He removed a 14in mass and saved my uterus and other female organs when I was told it couldn't be done. He has a fantastic bedside manner and took time to answer all my questions, concerns and always personally checked in on me after major surgery. I would recommend him time and time again. He keeps the human element in modern medicine.

Dr Potkul is the most skilled and compassionate doctor. He performed a laproscopic hysterectomy when my gyne of 25 years said it could not be done because of scar tissues I had from 4 c sections. I was petrified when I went to Dr Potkul but he was secure and experienced with everything he said and did. He did the surgery in less than 2 hours. He is the BEST and I feel great! I recommend him with all my heart!
