After being in the care of completely incompetent doctors who have almost ruined me for life, I have learned how to do my homework. If it takes flying across country to have something done (especially fixing the earlier messes, then so be it). I study up on a doctor and watch their reviews and talk to people even years before I see them. There are only about 3 or 4 doctors now that I will let touch me, and most of them I have to travel across country to see. Dr. Potozkin is one of the few doctors I consider to be truly trustworty and competent. The man knows his stuff. I mean that literally. He keeps up with current technology. If he buys a laser then decides it does not work up to his standards, he will not use it anymore. ETHICAL! ETHICAL! ETHICAL!
After visiting three dermatologists, I found Dr. Potozkin, and I have been very happy. Besides being a Mohs surgeon, (So he is an expert in the treatment of skin cancer) his practice includes cosmetic dermatology. What struck me first was his ability to explain the difference between different kinds of treatments. He did not try to push me into expensive processes that I did not need. He spent time with me, and put together a game plan to combat my skin issues. He was also able to reduce the appearance of a scar I received from a previous laser treatment (from a previous doctor) that was troubling me. I also appreciated that he did not charge for an initial consultation.
I have a tattoo I needed removed and have been going to a nurse in Walnut Creek, when I found out that my dermotologist - Dr. Potozkin - offered that service too. He was a little more expensive, but he numbed the skin (instead of the numbing cream the nurse had me self apply) and lasered it twice. His technique hurt a little more after the pain medicine wore off, but the results were much more dramatic. Still have a few more treatments, but definately a much better value...
I have found everyone on his staff to be helpful and professional. I would highly recommend Dr. Potozkin. Since I have been seeing him I have been getting complements on my skin.
Professional staff and efficient operation. Dr Potozkin was professional, instructive and efficient, yet you did not feel like he was racing to the next room ! I value physicians who value my time and keep their appointments. Unlike many others in his specialty, he does not oversell products or procedures. This is the doctor you want to be seen by.
I visited Dr. Potozkin's new office in Danville. It is beautiful and the service is amazing. I had an appointment at 10:00 a.m. and they got me in on time, which we all know does not happen with many medical offices. Not only was it a nice atmosphere but I was treated very well too. Several years ago, I had a medical issue. I had been to see many doctors and no one could figure out what was going on. I finally called Dr. Potozkin and he got me in immediately and figured out what the issue was. I highly recommend Dr. Potozkin and Heather Nudo.
Dr. Potozkin's Danville office is excellent in every way. I previously went to a dermatologist in Walnut Creek that I felt just was not making a difference for me. I decided to try something new, and I'm so glad I found Dr. Potozkin's office! The staff is professional and friendly and the office is beautiful, but more importantly, I feel that the PA, Heather, truly cares about helping my skin improve. I've been to four appointments now and each time, both the service and the treatments have been consistently amazing. I would highly recommend this office!
I went to Dr. Potozkin's office today for the first time to discuss a purely cosmetic issue...I was a little nervous this morning because obviously it bothers me, and the thought of actually showing someone something that I feel self conscious about is not my favorite thing to do...however, I was pleasantly surprised by my experience today. First, everyone in the office was so warm and welcoming, I am not used to that at a doctor's office. Second, when the assistant came in to chat with me before I saw the doctor, she was sweet and casual in a way that put me at ease and didn't make me feel weird about what I was coming in to ask about. Third, when Dr. Potozkin came in, I was pleasantly surprised at how comfortable I felt when he examined me. He briefly looked at what I was concerned with, then he allowed me to get dressed again so we could discuss it. He didn't poke or prod me or get out those horrible magnifying glasses...I would have died of embarrassment. His explanation of the procedure was specific and thorough - so much so that I actually had no questions after we were through! There is no doubt in my mind that he knows what he is talking about. I felt as though I could completely trust him. When I went out to the reception area to discuss scheduling my procedure, there was absolutely no pressure, and they were just as happy to send me on my way without me even opening my wallet (the consult was free). I have seen so many doctors in my life, including several dermatologists and a few plastic surgeons. I have never had a positive experience like this before! Not that they have all been bad, but this was just SO good! I was actually in a good mood all morning because the cheerful and positive nature of the staff had rubbed off on me! Highly recommended!
I was impressed by the staff and by Dr. Potozkin himself. Also impressed that when I had questions an hour later, the office called back right away and answered them all. I'm a pretty harsh judge of doctors (having been married to one for 15 years) and have nothing but good things to say about this one. and how's this for a good bottom line: so far everything he prescribed for me is working. Doesn't get better than that.
I trust Dr Potozkin implicitly. We used to live in the Bay Area but have since moved to Southern CA. I always schedule appointments with him when we are visiting family as he is one of the few Derms that is honest about the results you can expect from cosmetic procedures and when it comes to medical Derm issues, he has always been spot on in his treatment of suspicious looking moles. I can recommend him 100%!
