Geoff Potts is Managing Director of Shore Physio, which now covers 5 clinics across the North Shore. Geoff is currently working on his Doctorate, and is considered an expert in lower limb rehabilitation with a particular focus on anterior cruciate ligament injuries. Unfortunately, Geoff broke his wrist, and is not working clinically at the moment.

“I am really fortunate to have a fantastic group of people working with me, and it’s the quality of their work and their genuine care of patients that makes the difference. All the way from the first phone call at reception through to effective clinical care, we couldn’t achieve what we have without the whole team working together”

Geoff has been fortunate enough to travel the world with professional athletes and teams. He is committed to advancing the professional development of clinicians and provides all physiotherapy staff with individual mentoring and situational learning to ensure they develop to their potential. This commitment guarantees that our customers receive good service, but also great outcomes.
