Verified Patient Reviews
Very nice doctor. He was very attentive and helpful
Dr. Potter is the most caring doctor I have ever met. He is a genuine person who cares for his patients. He always asks me about work and school before examining me because he loves to engage in conversations with his patients. He always takes his time and gives me his full attention. I've had all great experiences with this doctor and I highly recommend. Aside from the fact that he is a great person, he is also a great dermatologist and my acne has come a long way with him. His secretary is a sweetheart and they always try to get me in as soon as they can. You won't find a better dermatologist then Dr. Potter!
I’ve been to a few different dermatologists because I have skin that needs to be regularly checked and I always feel rushed or see a pa and thats it. Dr Potter was really great, professional thorough and quick. He def knows what he’s doing I would recommend this doctor to anyone
First time using Dr. Potter and it was a great experience. He diagnosed it on the spot and began the procedure minutes after. Very stern and confident with his answers to my questions. This guy is the real deal. Great guy to talk to as well. I felt extremely comfortable. His office was quite unique. It seems to be an extension of his house. When you walk inside it felt no different than going to a regular practice. He does have these old aged skin ointment ads from Britain. I felt it gave the place some character. Overall I recommend paying him a visit.
Dr. Potter is an excellent dermatologist. He always treats us with respect, and listens to our complaints with great concern. We can always count on him to diagnose what is ailing us.
Great doctor he was really quick with my diagnosis and got me in and out in no time he had a good personality as well!
I like Dr. Potter. He is careful and exact, which is essential for looking for and treating potential skin cancers.
Dr. Potter is competent, very easy to talk to and knows how to solve the problem.
Very nice man. Old school office. Cash only. He fixed what was ailing.
Very thorough and professional
makes you feel at ease nice guy and staff are helpful
I love Dr.Potter. He is always so wonderful and friendly. He knows how to ease me when I am scared about a rash and reassure me that I will be fine.
Only takes cash or check.
I saw two doctors for my poison Ivy reaction prior to Dr Potter and he was the only to fix it immediately. A very competent and professional doctor!
Went for a very bad acne problem. Very kind and professional. Only doctor to prescribe me something that actually worked was very happy!
Dr. Potter was excellent and very professional. He listened to what I had to say and offered his own professional advice. Would recommend Dr. Potter to others.
Dr. Potter has been treating me and members of my family for a very long time. I brought my daughter there this evening. He treated her with kindness & respect. He diagnosed her problem immediately. I have nothing but great admiration for Dr. Potter. He is a great dermatologist and I would highly recommend him to anybody needing treatment. I have nothing but trust in him. Regards, Fred P.
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.
personal care. not rushed. wish all docs were like him.
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.
Dr. Potter was very thorough and careful in his exam. He took detailed notes and ask a lot of questions. He took his time, made his determination and prescribed care in a most professional and very approachable way. I would recommend him without reservation
As always he is a consummate professional. Dr. Potter is truly one of the top dermatologists in the world. He is caring and thorough. I would not go to anyone else.
After updating my insurance info and other paper work, I was taken directly into Dr. Potter's office. He was pleasant and professional, as always. His assistant was called into the office, as I had to undress. Carol O
Dr. Potter was very personable and professional. I arrived an hour early, and he saw me right away. He took his time and explained everything to me in detail. I would highly recommend him!
Dr Potter is very considerate and also very knowledgable-Makes you feel very comfortable and absolutely knows his specialty very well(Dermatology)
Overall the office is great
Dr. Potter is a first rate professional, and I'm glad to have him as my dermatologist.
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.
Very professional .
Short and sweet
I have been seeing this Dr. since i was a teenager. He is very accessable, gives good treatment (medically necessary), friendly and efficient office staff.
Dr. Was most Professional and easy to talk to about my concerns.
Dr Potter was very knowledgeable and professional. He thoroughly explained to me my treatment plan. He and his assistant were also very helpful in terms of accommodating me for my follow-up appointments on a rather irregular time due to my work schedule.
Do not want him as a physician
My first visit with Dr. Potter went well. He asked me many questions and addressed all mine. he was very nice and i will continue seeing him for my follow ups.
This was my first visit to Dr. Potter, and he was thorough in his examination, and clear in his explanation of what he saw. He was very professional, and pleasant.
Can't say enough great things about Dr Potter. I would recommend him to anyone. He is an excellent clinician and a great human!
Seemed very seasoned and straight to the point. Trusting.
Dr, Potter is very warm and professional.
Very satisfied with my experience being treated by Dr. Potter.
friendly office, doctor potter was very professional and very personable, listened thoroughly and did not rush my appointment, receptionist very nice and friendly, would highly recommend dr potter to anyone needing a dermotologist.
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.
THE APPOINTMENT WAS SET UP IMMEDIATELY VIA ZOC DOC(EXCELLENT SERVICE).THE WAITING PERIOD NORMAL. THE PROFESSIONALISM OF THE DOCTOR PERFECT. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND HM.
This was my second experience with a zoc doc recommended doctor. Both times were a ten. I was very pleased with Doctor Potter I recommend him highly.
Dr. Potter has been our dermatologist for over 30 years. We trust him with every diagnosis he makes, and know we are well-cared for with each visit. His receptionist is also very professional, and lovely to deal with.
Dr. Potter is an experienced, kind, no nonsense doctor that you can trust.
Excellent took his time to know me and mine concerns and very professional. In addition to this zocdoc app which was very helpful.
Doctor Potter is the exactly what I was looking for in a dermatologist -and more. You wont wind up in an appointment only to see a nurse practitioner, you always see the doctor, and he provides you with all the thorough attention you need. He is kind, courteous, punctual and professional. I highly recommend his practice to anyone looking for a true medical professional who provides personalized service and is genuinely interested in helping his patients. It is very hard to find a Dr. like this.
Excellent physician, perfect gentleman. A true leader in his field. It's a pleasure to find such a great dermatologist.
Excellent dermatologist, very easy to get appointment, excellent bedside manners.
He was kind and very knowledgeable. I got in and was seen right after I filled out the paperwork.
I would highly recommend him. He was easy to talk to and listened to all my concerns without interrupting me. One of the best doctors I have been to.
my perception of Dr. Potter changed when I told him what drug I had been on for years and he changes it to a drug that he had a pre-filled prescription pad of. This drug has not helped.
There's no substitute to experience and Dr. Potter has lots of it.
the doctor was polite and right to the point.
Dr Potter was thorough and professional. He also has a good sense oh humor.
He was knowledgable and encouraging
one of the best experiences I have ever had with a dermatologist. dr. Potter was well-educated, knew how to solve my problem, and I was in and out with all my questions answered. i highly recommend Dr. potter.
I went to see Dr. Potter for an odd skin rash on my face. I was seen almost immediately. Not only was Dr. Potter thorough with his examination, he took the time to ask about my medical history, not just pertaining to my skin. He spent a lot of time with me and started me on an antibiotic which is helping the issue go away. I would highly recommend him to anyone who does not wish to be rushed in an appointment, you will receive the proper care you are seeking. I will be going to him again.
Friendly and professional.
I was very apprehensive before my visit but Dr. Potter was very understanding and professional. Highly recommend Dr. Potter. Felt like it was talking to a family friend
His office was clean, friendly and very well maintained. They appear to take pride in their business. It shows through their attitude towards their clients and how they present their office. Dr. Potter was very professional. I will be seeing him for future appointments and I will be recommending him to others seeking a dermatologist.
I never felt so rushed during any type of medical consultation. This guy would not even allow me to finish my sentence to explain my concern. He kept mentioning how he had to be somewhere at 10:15 when he didn't even see me until 945 (my appointment was at 930 am but he was too busy talking about politics). Also the room was half lit which I thought it was awkward when examing a patient's skin.
Reception was so thoughtful calling to confirm my appointment! Dr.Potter is easy and professional, reading my file before talking to me. I'm bringing my family.
Great doctor, I've been going to Dr Potter for most of my adult life (I'm a senior citizen) and I wouldn't think of going anywhere else. Dr. Potter has helped me with numerous dermatological issues over the years and I have always been satisfied with the outcomes. Dr Potter has numerous years of experience and by now has probably seen it all and thus well equipped to deal with any situation. I forgot to mention that my spouse and children have gone there as well and are just as pleased.
Dr. Potter is the best of the best as far as doctors go. His skill as a surgeon is top notch. I wish he did plastic surgery.
I will definitely not go back. I have been to many dermatologists over my lifetime, and he is certainly the worst I've had yet. Unprofessional, not open to patient's claims, and too old fashioned.
Very nice, very polite and clean
This is not the first time that I have seen Dr. Potter. I remain satisfied with his competence.
Great Doctor. I have been using him for over 30 years!
Outstanding and gifted doctor who cares about every patient and treats everyone the same with professionalism, respect and compassion.. I couldn't think of using anyone else.
I thought the visit was excellent. I received good care, good advice, and an appropriate diagnosis. I intend on using Dr. Bernard Potter as my primary dermatologist.
Awesome experience. Very professional and friendly. Will unequivocally use Dr. Potter again and send referrals.
He was very gd and very freindly
Very thorough, took a complete history, identified the problem and treated it. I went to him for a rash on my chest and he discovered a suspicious mole on my back that will be addressed at a later date. Great doctor!
Very personable and friendly. Took his time to find out my problem. My problem was treated in a very professional manner. Very clean office and great office personnel. I found a new doctor! I would recommend him to everyone.
He was great.
Very knowledgeable! It was nice to see a doctor who didn't have to google your symptoms while you were still in the room.
Dr. Potter is very professional and is very caring about his patients. I would strongly recommend anyone in need of Dr. Potter's service line.
Very inviting and kind. Friendly staff. Diagnosed my problem right away. He's my new dermatologist!
