Dr Potter has excellent bed side manner and is an all around true proffessional. Ive been there twice and on both occasions I was called to be examined at the actual time of my appointment. Very refreshing.

The "Doctor" was very rude and unprofessional at best. His bias and mannerisms shaped for opinions that were uneducated and unhelpful. His "examination" was merely a 3 second overlook that any unlicensed individual could perform and come to the same conclusion. He is snarky and unsympathetic at very sensitive subjects for the patient. I would never recommend anyone to "Dr." Potter, given the waste of time and money it is showing up to his own personal residence.

This was my initial visit with Dr. Potter. He was extremely compassionate and professional. I received a thorough exam although I had a specific reason for my appointment. I didn't feel rushed; Dr. Potter took the time to explain what he was doing step-by-step. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Dr. Potter.

Dr. Potter's office scheduled me to see him the same day that I called, I couldn't find another dermatologist that would take me right away! He was very friendly and was able to diagnose me quickly as well as explaining my condition very clearly. I felt comfortable in his clean, organized office. I only had to wait 10 minutes to be seen by the doctor which was great too.

Dr. Potter is who you need to see if you are tired of doctors who don't listen or care. He takes the time to let you describe what issues or problems you are having and also explains very clearly what he will do to help or fix it. He does not promise what he cannot guarantee he can deliver, but when he can guarantee, he's on point. I had a mole removed within the first 2 times I came to his office and every step of the way he explained what he was doing, what I should feel, and asked is I was feeling anything different than what was expected. I didn't feel a thing and wondered why I waited 38 years to have that mole removed! I have been back for other similar appointments and have found that he is not only professional, but a really nice man. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.
