    Dr. Potts is seeing me on a regular basis. He has pulled me out of a depression that I couldn't shake off by myself. He's very good.

    I just started with Dr. Potts. Things are off to a good start. I was impressed that he checked my former therapists notes, (she's out of the country). [...]

    He saw me sooner than my scheduled appointment - a cancellation, which was very thoughtful.

    He has not given me advice on how I can get better. Everything I suggest he tells me to try. As a professional I expect him to give a way to recover from my illness.

    When I went to see my provider I was taken care of and he did paper work I needed for school and that he is a safe person to be around and he listens to you and he makes sure you understand.

    My visit with the provider felt that I could trust him and that he will not hurt me and I felt safe to talk to him about my troubles without being yelled at.

    We communicated effectively with each other. He's helped me work through issues I've been having.

    I have recommended him to friends.

    I have recommended this provider on a number of occasions.

    Dr. Potts is an incredible therapist, he listens without interrupting, he doesn't judge me, and has explained things in great detail that make sense.

    Dr. Potts is a PHENOMENAL doctor - the VERY BEST.

    Experienced on Apr 04, 2018

    I have seen Dr. Potts for a very traumatic event in my life over a year. He has ALWAYS spent the time needed in our session and occasionally at a critical time would go past our allotted time to help me.

    Dr. Potts is the best therapist.
