Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

6 weeks of waiting and money paid for nothing
I was patiently waiting for the appointment 6 weeks. The doctor spent just 15 minutes and said my problem is not just cosmetic and he sent me to Ultrasound, he said he will review the result and propose a treatment today. The ultrasound was booked and they said they will book it on another day and after that the doctor should review the result and propose treatment free of charge (for ultra sound I should pay extra which makes sense). On the next week they called me to remind about the appointment and they said the doctor will not propose treatment for free - they treat it as a follow up appointment after ultrasound. They said they do not remember that they promised that doctor will do any treatment proposal for free. We asked to send our records to another clinic (where by they way they do ultrasound + propose treatment on the same day - as far as I can see now this is pretty standard).

Aneurysm
Dr. Gotvald took care of me in the hospital after I found out that I had a bleeding aneurysm. He was able to repair it with a graft inserted through my groin. Literally saved my wife. Excellent surgeon and great team at St. David's Hospital

Dr. Gotvald fixed my carotid artery after I presented to the hospital with a stroke. He was very professional and reassuring. I honestly feel that he saved my life. I am very grateful that doctors of this caliber are present in Austin. I feel very lucky that he was on standby for the emergency room when I came in

I went to the vein center at the Austin location for pain and swelling associated with varicose veins. The doctor and staff made me feel comfortable with the entire process of workup and the procedures. They were also very efficient at dealing with my insurance company and getting me approved for vein therapy. I underwent one procedure on each of my legs that took roughly 30 minutes in the office. There was no signficant pain with the procedure and a very fast recovery. I was back at work for a full 12 hour shift the next day. Very grateful for their expertise!

Dr. Gotvald did surgery on my carotid artery for a severe blockage. It had caused me to have a rather significant stroke and I was so worried of worse things to come. After my discussion with Dr. G I realized immediately that I was in great hands. I am so thankful for the level of high quality care that I received. I highly recommend this vascular clinic.

Fabulous experience. I went to Dr. Gotvald for plastic surgery on my varicose veins and also to have my ankle and leg spider veins faded. The process went perfectly and could not be more pleased with the results. 5 star service!

This operation does not run an upstanding practice. Take care to review the discrepancies in your health chart from Dr. Gotvald compared to what he actually explained in the office. He neglected to mention procedural risks, costs, and verification of information that he claimed in his visit report. Additional, my cost was increased almost 100% and I was not notified until 24 hrs prior via TEXT. It took 2 calls and and email to the office for someone to return my call, where the office staff confirmed this was NOT the first time they had heard about discrepant information from Dr. Gotvald. BEWARE: They maintain an advance booking fee of $50 when the website claim a free appointment. They also added an additional booking/visit date to my records which was incorrect and refused to refund the $50 when I canceled my appointment because of their misinformation and inaccurate records. There are other well qualified doctors out there withe better practices. Seek them!

I was a patient of Dr. Gotvald over the last three to four months. My experience was extremely positive and at no time was I concerned I was with the wrong practice. Everyone - including the support staff, ultrasound technician, Physician's assistant and Dr. Gotvald himself - was professional, informative and genuinely interested in my care and assisting me. I strongly recommend researching the background of any practice if you need similar care. Experience and staying current with changing technologies and techniques is critical - Dr. Gotvald's practice has this and more. I am grateful for the excellent care and greatly improved condition and health. Thank you!
