Great Doctor
A doctor that listens and understands. Plus he's a wonderful understanding person. I went in with a bad achy knee and two days later I'm 99% pain free. Also, in the past he has repaired rotators on both shoulders. Highly recommend Dr. Gottlob.

So far, doing fantastic with post-op recovery…
I have really appreciated Dr. Gottlob’s willingness to listen and answer all my questions. He goes the extra distance every time. I’m pleasantly surprised by how manageable pain is. Just a few days of the stronger meds, and now on over the counter stuff, lots of icing and starting the at home PT. Had a biceps tendinitis and arthroscopic smoothing out of bone spurs, etc. So far, so good! Thanks much!

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.
