Dr. Potter brings with him a diverse educational and work background. Dr. Potter holds two Master of Science degrees, one in Information Systems and the other in Physician Assistant Studies. Prior to attending medical school, he worked as a software engineer in Silicon Valley for over ten years before working as a physician assistant in New Mexico.

“It is with great enthusiasm that we welcome Dr. Potter to our critical care team,” said Manish Singh, DHR Health Chief Executive Officer. “He will, undoubtedly, enhance the level of care we at DHR Health provide to our patients.”
In his role as a Critical Care Specialist, Dr. Potter will be dedicated to patients in the ICU, providing specialized care and advanced medical directives to the most severely ill or injured individuals, while monitoring their conditions to improve outcomes and help save lives.
