Dr. Gottschalk and staff are very compassionate. The doctor takes time to listen and explains to the parents step by step whatever procedure needs to be done. He is very thorough and I highly recommend.

His staff is amazing. I love his nurse, Laurie. She is always willing to answer any questions I have and never makes me feel rushed. She is available to me 24/7!! What a gem. What other doctor's office has someone like her? NONE! Dr Gottschalk is so good with my kids. They love coming to see Dr G!
