Dr. Jay Gottlieb, DO
I practiced as a Board Certified Ear, Nose, Throat, Head and Neck and Facial Plastic Surgeon and Board Certified Dermatologist in the south Florida area since 1982. There is no other profession that can give me the satisfaction that the practice of medicine provides. Patient care is gratifying and humbling. When patients refer their friends and their own family to me, it is the most gratifying feeling that I can get. It is answers why I chose to practice medicine at an early age. I am so grateful to the medical profession and to the thousands of patients that I treated in south Florida since arriving here in 1982. I will continue to do what I enjoy most until I am unable to perform at the highest level possible.

Dr. Gottlieb has been my dermatologist for the last 3 months and just completed my procedure to remove a cyst on my upper back. He is one of the most down to earth and friendliest doctors that I have ever met. He is very personable, patient, answered all of my questions throughout the procedure explained everything as he was doing it. He followed up with me after all of my visits with a phone call and asked me not hesitate to contact him if I needed anything.

My son is 11 years and he's been seeing Dr. Gottlieb for a few months now. He is very knowledgeable, sincere and makes my son very comfortable during our visits. I highly recommend him and his practice.

It was my first time visiting Dr. Gottlieb's office and it was THE best experience I've EVER had at a dermatologist. The staff was friendly, helpful, courteous, and prompt. Dr. Gottlieb himself was astounding! He was incredibly thorough with his explanations and extremely informative. I actually learned something new that day. My past experiences with dermatologist were that they came off as cold and abrupt, but Dr. Gottlieb took his time to make me understand and make me feel comfortable!
Laura Thank you for choosing our office for your care!

He is always upbeat and personable...this trait makes going to the doctor always something to look forward to.
Always a pleasure Norman

I went to see Dr. Gottlieb for a cystic acne that was really bothering me and making me self conscious. I had tried holistic approaches and nothing was working. I was afraid to go to the doctor because I was afraid to get the procedure done. I wish I would have gone to him sooner. He made me feel comfortable right away and the procedure felt like nothing. He even got the procedure approved by my insurance in a couple of minutes. I recommended him that same day to my father.
Thank you Angelica!!
in Davie FL |

Kathy, it is a pleasure to have you as a patient.

I had surgery today with Dr. Gottlieb for some skin cancer cells on my chest and collar bone. He was very thorough, made sure that I was not in any pain and explained every step as he was doing it. I told the nurse that I have an issue with band aids (they irritate my skin), so he used sterile strips that do not have to be removed until my stiches. He used paper tape and gauze to cover the wound. I feel very comfortable with Dr. Gottlieb and have recommended him to my family and friends.
Thank you for taking your time to complete this Nina. Here's to good health!
in Hollywood, FL |
I was very impressed with Dr. Gottlieb. He had a great bedside manner and made me feel very comfortable, especially with the issue I was coming to him to have evaluated. He put my mind at ease despite the fact that he was running a biopsy on 2 growths and making me feel that if there is an issue it will be treated and I will be fine. I would definitely recommend Dr. Gottlieb.
Richard Thank you very much.
in Hollywood, FL |
I have been seeing him for maybe 8 to 10 years. And with his treatments and advice, my skin is doing very well
Makes me happy.

Totally amazing office and doctor!!! He was on time, friendly, concerned and helpful! I loved my visit. How weird is that---at a doctor's office!
Ha Ha! I wish I could always run on time! You will always get my full attention when I come in the exam room.
in Pembroke Pines |
Dr. Gottlieb is excellent! I highly recommend him. He takes the time to explain everything in a language you can understand. One of the things I like the most is that he treats you with a holistic approach, which is very difficult to find today in other doctors. Dr. Gottlieb and all his staff show me empathy, and that is priceless for me. Thank you for helping all of us to live healthy and longer!
Thank you Gabriel. I enjoy our visits.

BEST DERMATOLOGIST in South Florida. As a military family, we have moved around a lot (+15 times) and changed doctors ever time we transferred, and Dr Jay Gottlieb, Ashley Pardue and Amy Greenberg are the best, of the BEST. Dr Gottlieb and his staff are on the top of my list. They are professional, courteous, very attentive, always listen to your concerns and are willing to go the extra mile. I have highly recommended his practice to friends and military families in the area. --Clara I
Thank you for all that you and your family do for all of us!
in Miami Gardens, Florida |
Although this was my second visit to Dr. Gottlieb's office I feel very comfortable with him and his staff. He listened to my concerns regarding my medical issue and explained in detail the medical procedure he would be performing. He truly made me feel comfortable and at ease. He gave me detailed instructions on how to care for my stitches. He is definitely a Doctor I would recommend to others. Thank You Dr. Gottlieb.
I hope that you always feel the same in our office Marlene.

My daughter has been seeing Dr. Gottlieb since she was 14 years old today she's 21 and still trust him as her dermatologist for all her skin care. She has eczema and when it flares up he always treats it promptly. Today she went to treat her hidradenitis suppurativa and immediately she felt so much better. Thank you Dr. Gottlieb!!
I do have the best patients in south Florida.
Miramar, Florida |
Dr. Gottlieb knew how to help my nervous & scared daughter overcome the fear of her (large) wart removal procedure. He did a great job at explaining what the steps would be and took the mystery out of the entire process. He numbed the area first, then used a topical anesthetic. Then he made sure she did not feel anything before proceeding to remove her wart. My daughter was shocked that it was quick and painless. Most important he was kind & gentle. Thank you for your years of experience.
It takes a little longer, but I'm always honest with my patients (even the kids!) I enjoy all of my patients, especially the children and the teens.
in Pembroke Pines, FL |
Dr. Gottlieb is by far the most pleasant and caring doctor I have ever visited. He takes the time to answer my medical questions and clearly explains my condition and treatment options. He is thorough and is not rushing to leave the examination room. I am fortunate to have him as my Dermatologist and I highly recommend him. The office staff is courteous, efficient, and waiting times are minimal.
I always want you to feel this way Ernesto.

Been going to his office for about 10 years. He is the best I have visited very, very good at his job.
I love my practice and all of our patients.
in Miami, FL |
I saw Dr Gottileb and Dr Amy Greenberg on a few visits concerning rashes I had since 2007. I was treated several times by different doctors who incorrectly diagnosed the cause. Now I'm finally free from those plagues that made my life a miserable hell for years . I love those two doctored, they are two in a million. They are very thorough in the service they provide. They took time call me personally about my condition. Above all, they are extremely kind and humble. Shine on beautiful souls!
Thank you Winsome. Always a pleasure.

I had my yearly appointment with Dr. Gottlieb this week. I have to say it was like catching up with an old friend (I have been going to Dr. Gottlieb for years now). Dr. Gottlieb is friendly, professional and very through in his examination. He is one of the best doctors I have ever had the pleasure to be a patient of. I look forward to seeing him and catching up on our lives next year. I am sure I will have a few more of lives barnacles to check when I do see him. He is the greatest.
Makes me feel great. Thank you!!

Just had my first basal cell skin cancer removed. Dr. Gottlieb was great... clearly explained what the cancer is and what the process is to remove it. Was very reassuring throughout the procedure.
Makes me feel great! Thank you!
in Miami, FL |
I was beyond impressed with my experience at this doctor’s office. My first contact was with Jay and I was completely blown away by how helpful and kind he was and how fast he was at getting back to me! A lot of doctors don’t realize how important it is to have administration like Jay. The first point of contact is crucial! Now on to the appointment… my appointment ran on time, Dr Gottlieb was really knowledgeable and made me feel comfortable throughout all my appointments!
I love my practice and all of our patients.

I have been seeing Dr. Gotlieb for several years as my dermatologist. He has worked hard to mitigate a lifetime of sun damage to my face which has included blue light treatments with excellent results. He has been dogged in his efforts and I will recommend him to anyone. He is thorough and personal in his technique and not rushed. His office is efficient and courteous.
I'm the luckiest doctor around.I love my practice and all of our patients.

Not only the best Dermatologist I have ever had but one of the best Doctors I have ever had for anything! I do not live in SE FL but will happily drive the eight hours to see Dr. Gottlieb. Dr. Gottlieb solved skin problems for me that other Doctors I have seen over three to 4 years could not solve or even diagnose. Highly recommend this Doctor if you have skin issues and if you have skin cancer or think you do, for sure see no other Doctor!
Thank you so much!

Dr. Jay and his entire staff are very kind, professional and thorough. During my recent skin cancer removal, Dr. Jay kept up a running commentary explaining what he was doing and answering all my questions all of which kept me calm and the procedure was done before I knew it. His follow up was excellent and you never leave the exam room until he's answered all your questions and he gives you a business card with information on how to reach him at any time.
in Ft Lauderdale, FL |
I felt that Dr. Gottlieb took care of every concern in had and answered all my questions. I had a cyst on my chest that has been bothering me, he removed it and had it biopsied. I had no pain after the removal and i followed his very detailed directions on after care. I was also having alot of itching and stinging non my skin mostly arms, he told me to bathe with dove liquid soap and change my laundry soap to Tide or anything Freeof dyes and perfumes, i did that and i feel so much better.
