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.
