The doctor spent a hlf hour explaining the options and we decided to do surgery for my pinched nerve in the elbow. I did not feel pressured at all
New City, NY |
Might be a great doctor , but never came out to tell me my husbands surgery was over, just left the building!! Awful!!!
Elmwood Park, NJ |
After taking a nice trip over a guardrail while riding my motorcycle in Harriman Park/Bear Mountain, both my radius and ulna were fractured in multiple locations. Without Dr. Gotesman and his performing emergency surgery, I could have easily lost my arm or at best suffered irreparable nerve damage. Would 100% recommend him to any of my friends or family members (and I have) should they be in need of orthopedic care/services.

I can not say enough about this doctor. He takes the time with you to explain everything and makes sure you have the answers to all of your questions. He is very professional and also very nice. He did surgery on both of my knees and took the time to sit with my husband and explain what went on and how I was doing. Would recommend anyone to him.

finally found an orthopedist that listens to me and THEN makes a treatment decision. Always seemed that others had made up their minds before they even met me.

in New City, NY |
Dr. Gotesman was great. He was very kind, thoughtful, and thorough. He explained everything about my injury and what he was going to do to fix the problem. He gave me his realistic opinion of my recovery, which I appreciated. I tore 3 ligaments in my wrist, had a slight fracture, and dislocated the lunar bone in my thumb. He did such a good job that he was shocked by how well my wrist recovered. I would recommend Dr. Gotesman to anyone with a wrist injury.

Extraordinarily knowledgeable and responsive in an uncomfortable emergency situation.
