I have been a pt of Dr Gottesfelds' for several years now and recently had my first laser treatment. He was very informative and answered all my questions and I love the results I achieved.

Dr.Gottesfeld is the best dermatologist I have ever been to. His clinical skills are just plain excellent. His explanations are clear and his demeanor as professional as it gets. His office staff was wonderful. Highest recommendation I can give to this physician.

I went to him to remove som skin tags, he said it would be healed in a week. 6 weeks later I am scarred and will have to go to plastic surgeon to minimize them. Also, he charged me 400$ for under a half hours work. Also, he was paid by insurance company also. He was not entitled to be paid by me personally, only the copay. And his seemingly nice staff is trained in resisting giving you your money back. Stay away from this second rate doctor and thief. Unless you want to be ripped off and scarred

Professional, wise, and compassionate care. I have been to over a dozen dermatologists in Palm Beach over the past 20 years and Dr Gottesfeld holds the bar high.

He is thorough, professional but friendly and very considerate. I have been a patient for several years but just had my first Mohs surgery and the experience was very positive. Also his staff is superb.
