Dr. Potdar is an excellent surgeon!. Aside from the fact that he is a great surgeon, he was also very involved in every aspect of my care. He is a friendly and caring doctor and I would definitely recommend him to others.

actions speak louder than words, and this doctor definitely doesn't care. No post op follow up and when you do have questions, you're basically brushed off and told "go to the ER". You sir, are what gives doctors bad names and you disgust me in the way you've handled yourself

My father has stage 4 Kidney cancer that spread to his intestines creating a blockage. This prevented him from eating or drinking for 3 weeks. The attending doctor recommended hospice care. Dr Potdar was the surgeon who examined my father and came to see him everyday. We told Dr Potdar that we were discussing hospice. He said he was not ready to let that happenand asked to conduct one last procedure. It worked. My dad is now able to continue cancer treatment vs hospice. He never gave up. Thanks!

Would recommend Dr Potdar and his office staff to anyone who needed general surgery. Very professional and down to earth. Explained the operation and recovery in terms my wife and I could understand

Dr. Potdar is very professional.. Great surgeon I would recommend him to anyone..

Potdar preformed an inguinal hernia surgery (right groin) and refused to prescribe ANY pain medication after surgery. It is common practice to have strong narcotic pain medicine prescribed after hernia surgery. I am allergic to IV Morphine, but not to any other narcotic pain medicine and have taken such medicine in the past after surgery. I feel that Potdar abandoned his responsibility in caring for me and it is obvious that patient care and comfort was of no concern to him. WARNING Bad Dr!
