Specialties

Dr. Amy E Potter has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

  • Pediatric Endocrinology

    Endocrinologists treat disorders related to our glands and the hormones they produce. Because hormones play a key role in the growth and development of children, these conditions often pose different threats to children than they do adults. That’s where a pediatric endocrinologist comes in.
    They can diagnose and treat hormonal disorders such as abnormal thyroid function, growth complications and early or delayed puberty. Ambiguous genitals as well as ovarian and testicular dysfunction are also part of their expertise. Childhood obesity, diabetes and problems with low blood sugar also tie back to hormone function and may require consulting with a pediatric endocrinologist.

Disapointed...expected more from Vanderbilt MD

Our MD referred us to Vanderbilt after our child was dx w/hypothyroidism. Waited three months for appointment and I did call several times to see if anyone had cancelled an appt.The office was out of date. The lab was VERY small could only hold two chairs. Also, had another child getting blood drawn at the same time as our child. No stretcher for a pt that gets light headed or passes out when their blood is being drawn(our child does). I was told she would call me ASAP after blood work results. After waiting a week and very worried I called and was told I was suppose to call her(when would I know when the results came back). We were told to come back in six months and would be seeing a nurse practioner. Our MD sent us to a MD Specialist therefore we will not be returning. I don't have a problem w/nurse practioners, but not for this!

Good Doctor - Staff Needs Work

Dr. Amy Potter is a super doctor. She is kind and caring and personable. She explains things well and makes you feel comfortable even when hearing bad news. Her office, however, needs alot of work. Phone calls are not returned, wait time is long, the office staff are not friendly. We have had several situations where we left voicemails for nurses and never received a return phone call or vital information was not communicated. For example, after our last visit, my daughter's medication was changed to a higher dose (by the nurse practitioner, not Dr. Potter) and we were never notified. We didn't find out until our refills ran out and we called for a new Rx. If she needed a higher dose, then that should have been communicated and called in right away; not 5 months later when the refills ran out on the previous prescription.
