I had a stellar experience with Dr. Gottschalk and his team. I got my trigger finger release surgery and had no swelling and minimal pain from the incision. I was off pain killer after two days and my recovery is speedy by any standard. Class act on all fronts.

Review for Dr. Mattox

I would recommend Dr. Gottschalk. He was professional and kind - explaining the surgical procedure in a clear way and giving his expectations for a very good outcome following surgery. Also, my post-op course has been amazingly pain free and uncomplicated.
