I was introduced to Dr. Gottlich in the hospital where I was being treated for an infected elbow. He was very caring, very attentive, and unlike many surgeons was not in a rush to operate on my elbow. He kept a very close eye on my case and has earned my trust. As we age we tend to suffered from other orthopedic mishaps and should one or more of them befall me I will absolutely visit Dr. Gottlich.

Dr Gottlich did a great job on fixing my arm & wrist. I thought I would never use my arm & wrist. I saw him for a year. I am doing great. He took real good care of me. I would recommend him. Hope you doing good Dr G.

Dr. Gottlich replaced my knee last year here in Florida. I am blessed to have found him. The entire procedure was not easy but Dr. G made it worthwhile with his advice and care — my knee is perfect! Hope I don’t need the other one replaced but if I do I will be tempted to travel! Great personality and terrific surgeon.

If I could rate him with no stars I would. If you love yourself or your loved ones please do not get involved with Dr Gottlich. He is the worst doctor I have ever encountered in my life. Because of his negligence we almost lost my father. He will find any excuse to blame others for circumstances that arise from his inept ability. He also has an ego that is so fowl and off putting it is unbelievable. The way we witnessed him treat nursing staff and administration was disgusting.

I would highly recommend Dr. Gottlich for any of your orthopedic needs. He repaired my Achilles and put a plate in my wrist. I am so sad that he moved out of Florida. Not sure I trust anyone else putting me back together if I have another orthopedic issue. South Carolina is very lucky to have him!

This doctor is very special. He replaced both of my knees and right shoulder. He will always make time for you and tell you the truth. His personality out does any doctors I know. His patents in Florida really miss him. I am one of those patients but moved to Virginia. My name is Linda Wyllie and just wanted to wish him and his family good luck on his new job and home.
