Horrible. The doctor is abrupt, rude, and uncaring. He spent less than 30 seconds with my daughter and documented for half of that time. His office staff is nasty and disrespectful. They don’t show an ounce of compassion and care only about money. They don’t even lift their eyes from their paper. I never had such a bad experience in a doctor’s office. They provided misinformation and then blame the patient. I hope no one ever has to come here. I would give zero stars but that is not an option.

Dr. Gotesman did not wear a mask to protect himself or me from the Corona Virus. He was very rough in his injection in my knee and only used an alcohol swap to clean the area wile the previous injections by other Docs in his practice used iodine while thoroughly cleaning the joint area before giving the injection. Had bleeding from the site which I had not had with previous shots.

I felt so comfortable talking with Dr Gotesman that I decided to let him do surgery for my trigger thumb this coming December. He listened to everything I had to say and was not in a rush and he explained everything to me in detail. So glad I found him.

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.

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.
