Recently I was admitted to UPMC Passavant in McCandless. Dr Potter was the physician assigned to me on the unit, after the ER. Dr. Potter was GREAT! He spent a lot of time trying to sort out my somewhat complicated history and he thought of everything. He covered all my medications perfectly, he had ordered the physical therapist to see me, he had all my follow up appointments made, he even got me a new cane! His bedside manner was relaxed and comforting, yet he asked all the right questions and zeroed in on the problems immediately. Altogether a positive experience!
