Patient Comments (4)
in Bloomingdale, IL |
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!

I would recommend Dr. Potkul to anyone who happened to be in need of is services. He's very warm and explains everything as much as is needed. He makes you very comfortable and doesn't rush through patients.

Dr POTKUL is a step above the rest. His compassionate, skillful, and thorough work goes a long way, solving and performing procedures others doctors completely neglected to consider. Dr Potkul's experience and empathy are to be revered. He is a gem in the healthcare system, a true reflection of excellence and precision.
