“I am forever grateful!” – A patient’s story

At one of the most confusing, difficult times in my life Dr. Eric Potter brought the hope and answers I needed. When we first met and he opened our appointment with prayer I knew I had found the perfect doctor for me. He was empathetic and listened carefully to every symptom I was feeling. He was devoted to digging deeper and finding the root cause to whatever was causing the problems I was facing.

Dr. Potter provided a 15-page wellness program and an over hour-long phone call thoroughly explaining the complicated diagnosis of MTHFR and other various genetic SNPs. He was attentive and answered every question I had. I am most appreciative that the wellness plan was not a “one-size-fits-all” protocol. He tailored it specifically to my issues and was devoted to restoring balance to my body naturally. For example, instead of jumping to prescribing thyroid medicine to treat my low hormones levels, he advised to take the necessary steps to restore hormone production naturally, and it worked. Now, a year later I am feeling better than I ever have. When I first met with him I was eating a very limited diet, probably under 20 safe foods, and now I am eating so many I can’t even count.

I am living a normal life without any symptoms I used to have, like excessive fatigue, joint pain, digestive issues, irregular and painful menstruation, food intolerances, and for that I am forever grateful.
