Receptionist very helpful & polite.The nurse coughing,had to leave the room from coughing so much.When she returned she said she had been sick, shouldn't be there .Dr. Potts came in,did not wash hands,hand sanitizer,or gloves,asked why I was there and with a quick exam of my ears,mouth using wooden tongue depressors, and nose, said,looks fine.I asked,"what is on the inside of my cheek, it IS something", he gave a answer like,"it's just a swollen salivary gland".I showed him a picture of my mother with her mouth and sinus cancer and shared my concern, He said "it looks benign", on my tongue where my dentist had concern, Dr. Potts said "it's like a skin tag" and as far as my nose , he said "it's fine". My husband who was in the room with me said he saw Dr. Potts adjust his chair twice while holding the tongue depressors in his hands. My husband and I have been sick the whole month of February after my appt. and had to go to our Reg. doctor to get prescriptions for respiratory infections.
