Specialties

Dr. Carol J 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 Gastroenterology

    Pediatric gastroenterologists can treat a variety of diseases and conditions in infants and children related to their liver, pancreas or intestines. If your child has severe or recurrent abdominal pain, constipation or diarrhea, a pediatric gastroenterologist can help you get to the bottom of it. They can also help identify the many possible causes of failure to thrive in infants.
    Other common conditions they treat include Crohn's Disease, inflammatory bowel disease, liver disease, short gut syndrome and hepatitis C, as well as nutritional disorders like celiac disease and lactose intolerance. In order to diagnose and treat your child’s condition, gastroenterologists can perform colonoscopies and other diagnostic testing before deciding on the best treatment plan.

Too many personal health issues...not available to docotr...

This doctor has taken numerous times for health issues. she has had Lupus, Cancer and a severe heart condition.. I really am not sure sure how she is still practicing with all of these medical issues of her own. She only can have appointments one day a week. she does not listen to patients or their families opinions on treatment and she has a VERY big ego!

Doctor That Does Not Have A Clue

If you are wanting to find a doctor who you can depend on. Dr. Carol Potter is not for you. She will take off time from work for months at a time, your concerns and questions were shuffeled to someone else. She is the worst doctor that I have delt with

Not impressed. I had to call several times to find out about my sons test results of which I am still waiting for. It has been three weeks. The doctor never called me to let me know what was wrong with my son, he has an enlarged liver. I am very leery about Dr. Potter's ability to properly communicate and listen to a patience's medical history and current ailment. I understand they see a lot of children but, it is unacceptable to not follow up with the patient.
