Dr. Gottlob was great. Very professional and highly skilled. As a physician myself, I sought him out as my first choice to salvage my leg from a bad and unusual quadriceps tendon rupture that had me sidelined from my own practice. I’ve had a great outcome with faster than average healing and no complications. So grateful to him. Pro tip: Dr. Gottlob is the Doctor to the Doctors!

I have seen Dr. Gottlob many times over 20+ years for knee problems and now for a shoulder injury. He takes time to explain the problem and to do a thorough examination. He doesn't rush to surgery as a first option. He does give you full information so you you can participate in your own care rather than being told, this is what we are doing. I appreciate being treated as part of that decision making process from the beginning since ultimately it is my decision.

Dr. Gottlob is one of the most professional and caring doctors I have had the privilege of knowing. The replacement of my Left shoulder 10 years ago was done with remarkable expertise. His work speaks for itself. As a veterinarian for 40 years, I feel that I can recognize quality medical care. My right shoulder is now headed toward the need for replacement and I know I will be in good hands when the time comes for him to do it. He truly makes a difference.

Dr. Gottlob is an exceptional surgeon. He is a very courteous professional with an honest, superb bed side manner. He is talented and skilled as he made clean incisions for my successful rotator cuff repair surgery. I appreciate Dr. Gottlob’s excellent care, and also of his team, Meranda Hernandez and Brian Morgan. I am a loyal patient and I will highly recommend Dr. Gottlob to others. Thank you.

Yes! This was my third visit in 6.5 years with him to alleviate pain I was having in my knee. X-rays were taken, reviewed & Quickly determined a Cortizone injection would help. In and out in less than an hour! Professional, friendly and prompt. Great staff.
