Wow, just went for a visit with Dr. Potter for my son per a recommendation of a friend. We live an hour away, he was worth the drive. He immediately calmed my sons nerves and took the time to explain What he was doing in a way that he could understand. He was excellent we will definitely doing our follow up with him.

Fancy space, nice office. Incompetent health care. Doctor was arrogant and smug. Despite his opinion of his superior knowledge, both he and his associate misdiagnosed my daughter's eye condition. Thank god I had the insight to take her directly to Yale despite these two doctors' opinions. She needed to be admitted to the hospital immediately to stave off permanent eye damage.
