Here is what some of our patients say about us!
Excellent! She cared for my mother for a few years and as my mother was a very difficult patient, managed to work with her more than my mother would let most other doctors. She was very understanding, caring and professional, so much so that I see her now myself. I enjoy her sense of humor and personal approach, as well as the fact she only suggests medical tests and medications she feels are really necessary.....
My mom has advanced Alzheimer's and we have been seeing Cissy for near 2 decades. She cares for my mom and husband and I. I think she is just the best, and offers a small practice feel while giving great care. She is very caring and will call and follow up on patients even at 9 pm at night. She is the best. Her desk (one lady) help a few days per week is not overly friendly, but efficient- but I can live with that.
I've taken my mother to see Dr. Pottanat a few times over the past two years as she has early/mid stage Alzheimer's. She has been extremely helpful and takes the time with my mom to make sure she feels comfortable and happy. Never a problem with the receptionist as well - she is very kind and responsive. Not sure about the negative reviews on here but my mother has had a great experience with her.
The doctor is easy to talk to about your symptoms. She is a great listener and very insightful. She is kind and gives you time,so rare today. She works independently And is very thorough.
