I am 34 years old and have been dealing with several issues including a fractured back, which causes me severe pain. This has been a struggle for me. After years of being frustrated I was lucky enough to get an appointment with Dr. Potter, “Mia.” Immediately she had a game plan for me and opened me up to trying things that would help. Dr. Potter always listens to what is going on and takes the time to know me so that she can tell and understand my issues. I look forward to my appointments with her because I know I will always walk away with a plan and goal for not only the next 30 days, but a long term one as well. She has really improved my life.
