Him and his staff treat people like they are important, very important, good sense of humor, pleasant to talk to and are fast and effective in clearing my issue with ease most of the time. I am not saying he is a miracle worker but close. He spots things on me right away and knows how to treat it. If I have a medical history, of allergies or medicine his nurse always looks it up to see if it will interfere with his proceeding treatment.

Be careful. He does not advise on the dosage and side effect of some of the medicatons he gives. Be sure no to take the Imiquimod cream if he give it to you. Very dangerous drug. Dr Michael Tait, says: "In my opinion, based on my observations and research, Aldara should be classified as a criminally dangerous material if used on any open or potentially open skin area."

Dr potter is great, his front office staff isn't! The older lady with short brown hair is rude, every time I've been in there she's been this way, it makes for an uncomfortable wait time, which is long bc they overschedule. I would go to another dermatologist if there was one on island bc of his front staff.

Unfortunately I had a very poor experience when I arrived for my appointment. The front desk person was condescending and unwelcoming so I canceled my appointment even though I had waited over 3 months to see the Doctor. A doctor patient relationship with mutual care and respect is essential. If the customer facing person exhibited this behavior and it’s considered acceptable in my opinion it’s a poor reflection on the whole office. Very disappointing experience.
