Bryan Potter MD has joined Island Surgeons, where he specializes in general surgery, head and neck surgical oncology, and phlebology.

Dr. Potter received his Doctorate of Medicine degree from University of Cincinnati, College of Medicine. He completed his internship at the Department of Surgery, Methodist Hospital, Indianapolis, IN; and his residency at the Department of Surgery, Jewish Hospital, Cincinnati – where he also served as chief resident. This was followed by a fellowship at the Department of Head and Neck Surgical Oncology, University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX.

Dr. Potter began his career as a staff surgeon at Coshocton County Memorial Hospital, Coshocton, OH. From 2004 through 2011, he practiced in rural Oregon and Washington (including at Island Hospital as a locum tenens surgeon, 2008-2009), where he provided a broad range of general, head and neck, trauma, thoracic, gynecologic and vascular surgical care. In 2012 Dr. Potter returned to the Midwest, having chosen to dedicate himself entirely to the management of varicose vein disease, and he has since earned certifications in diagnostic ultrasound of registered vascular technologist (RVT) and registered physician in vascular interpretation (RPVI). Dr. Potter comes to Island Surgeons from Rocky Mountain Vein Clinic, Billings, MT, where he specialized in phlebology.
“I am genuinely excited to return to Anacortes and have another opportunity to work with the expert staff at Island Hospital,” he said. “I have practiced in many facilities throughout the country, and Island has always stood out as a special place. I thoroughly enjoy the Pacific Northwest lifestyle, but more importantly I find that the people of this entire community are truly warm and accepting. I look forward to providing the highest level of surgical care to all patients as I make my new home here.”

Dr. Potter is a member of the American Board of Surgery and the American Board of Venous and Lymphatic Medicine.
