Dr. Potts, as well as his medical staff (i.e., not the administrative or front office), were collectively amazing. Dr. Potts took great care to explain my condition, work through the analysis of what it meant for me moving forward, and he patiently answered my questions with thoughtful responses. It was an excellent experience, and I felt fortunate to be in his care.

Not expecting the challenges Dr. Potts presented to me, I was at a loss for words/questions to ask. He provided many answers before I could ask, which proved to be so helpful.
