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.
My husband and I have been unable to have a child in our nine years of marriage. We have been on a long journey to figure out the cause of infertility. Along the way, we have learned that I am dealing with painful endometriosis and something called MTHFR.

Most who read this blog post have asked themselves “What does he mean by “Biblically Wholistic healthcare?” or “How is this different than other healthcare?” Don’t feel bad that you have not heard this phrase before.
