Comments & Testimonials | Vista Urology

"Differentiation, and emphasizing strengths: You know these far better than I, but what I see as your strengths very much differentiates you from the vast majority of urologists. Importantly, I see these strengths as very appealing (and useful!) to many men suffering from pain and dysfunction. Things that come to mind are your comprehensive initial sessions, your explanations and assurances, your view of the 'big picture', the behavioral and psycho-social aspects of pelvic issues, your view of the very misleading prostato-centric paradigm, and of course a familiarity with the role of the soft tissues. Not sure how best to do this, but emphasizing these, and other strengths, in your marketing might attract more men. Those that I work with are often desperate for good information and treatment options after (in their view) being chewed up and spit out by mainstream medicine."

Comments & Testimonials of Vista Urology


"I shudder when I think about how the quality of my life would have forever suffered had I not been referred to Dr. Potts.
Several years ago I developed an ailment colloquially known as "headache of the pelvis." Few urologists know or understand the condition, which almost always inflicts Type A personalities. The pain is unbelievably excruciating; had I owned a gun I would have given serious thought to blowing my brains out. The pain was that bad.
The first urologist I saw was an uncaring SOB who wanted me to undergo a rather painful test procedure. He also put me on a drug without warning me about some serious side affects that badly limited my lifestyle. Fortunately, I had a family friend who referred me to a top urology surgeon at a major medical facility; the surgeon, to his amazing credit, recommended that Dr. Potts was better suited to treat my condition.
I was initially reluctant to see a female urologist, but Dr. Potts immediately put me at ease. She is amazingly compassionate and she spent considerable time getting to know me as well as the symptoms of my condition. Unlike many specialists these days, Dr. Potts treats people, not conditions. She listened to my concerns and lifestyle priorities, and then outlined my various options.
While Dr. Potts is incredibly warm and kind, she has the requisite toughness to deal with health insurance companies. My carrier didn't want to cover the cost of the drug she prescribed, but somehow she got them to bend. She went the extra mile and beyond to get me coverage.
I have another urological condition that gives me considerable concern. But it gives me great comfort that I'm being closely monitored by Dr. Potts, and that I'm under the care of a world class urologist. I know that Dr. Potts will always make certain that I understand all the various treatment options and their risks, so that I can make the medical choices that are best for me.
Regardless of where you live, if you are a male and have a serious urological condition, I'd highly recommend traveling to San Jose to see Dr. Potts. I know first-hand that seeing the wrong urologist can have dire and unnecessary consequences."
