All of the staff are very friendly and professional, a wonderful balance. I could not have found a better doctor for my transplant. His attention to detail is amazing and he is extremely thorough and also willing to listen to me when i have questions. I know he sees a ton of patients on a daily basis but during my appt. he is always focused on me and my heath and wants the best outcome, a very caring man. Plus his surgical skills are quite impressive.

I would recommend Dr. Potter to anyone needing his services. I feel like he saved my life. He performed my surgery when others wouldn't. He spends a lot of time at the hospital taking care of his patients. That's the reason there is a long wait time at his office because he's always at the hospital. He is worth the wait. We love Dr. Potter.

Dr. Potter is the best in his field. He is very knowledgeable, courteous and precise. The wait time is a bit long because it is first come, first serve. His nurses are awesome; they work with me to get my medications ordered, explain things if I do not understand and have the patience of Job! Dr. Potter and his entire staff is great!
