      This is the doctor who saved my life, not once, but twice. He argued with the radiologist for me (yay!), and prescribed a gram-negative antibiotic when all other docs were content to beat a dead horse with Cipro. Dr. Gottfried possesses a bedside manner not unlike that of Dr. House. If you want a fuzzy, sensitive-new-age doctor who will hold your hand and cry, he's not it. But he's hands-down brilliant, and if you need someone who can save you, he's your doc. Be funny. He likes funny.

      I had the worst Experience with him. It seemed he didn't know what he was doing. If its a life or death situation he will probably give you death cause when your in the hospital He gives you the wrong stuff and wont care what happens to you no remorse from him. His understudy lost medical records and personal information. Very Unprofessional..

      Very good.

      I would recommend AVOIDING this doctor if possible. I went to see him in a pinch and regret the entire experience. He ordered appropriate testing and was insightful. That is where the good experience ended. The nursing staff was awful and neither the doctor or nurses called to update me on any of my tests - I always had to call and hound them for up to a week to get results that were readily available to them. The delivery of serious news was less than professional as well. Go elsewhere!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
