Dr. Potts and her RN Casey are both so kind, helpful, compassionate and I would recommend anyone needing physical medicine care to be treated by them. I love coming to see Dr. Potts and our child is always treated well. they are above and beyond at every appointment. I can not thank them enough.

Dayton Survey

Make the main campus have as much room as the south campus. Main is so much closer to me, but there is more equipment available to use at the south campus.

Dr. Potts is a great provider. She's always given my daughter excellent care, she listens to both the parent and our daughter as a patient, and includes our daughter in her care which is amazing. So we love the clinic and all the staff that work in her office, especially nurse Casey.
