What People Say About Dr. P Christopher Gottschalk, MD

All I can say to these negative reviews is "Wow". Dr. Gottschalk is far from arrogant. A pill pusher? I have to laugh. He helped my Husband, who was going to the ER 3x+ a week, diagnose his Cluster Headaches & get them manageable. He actually went into remission for a time & w/ Dr. Gottschalk's blessing went off of some of the meds he was taking for the headaches. He's also helped me w/ my Migraines. Even gave us his cell & texted/consulted me when his schedule was overbooked. Great Dr.!!!

Dr. Gottschalk worked miracles for me! I’d suffered migraines from my early teens through to my 50’s. He was the only Dr. To take the time to ask questions I’d never been asked and gave me a wide range of new treatments to consider. I am so grateful to him. At each appointment, he is patient, professional, and very empathetic. I completely disagree with the negative reviews listed here!

I could not agree more with the first review. Dr Gottschalk suppose to be the number 1 in the area of migraine in the state. All he showed up as was a pharmaceutical seller, who saw my sister after 8 months of waiting, did not ask 1 question, did not want to check her history, hormones, bairn images. Nothing! Juts gave her shots prescriptions each would cost her around $1400!!!! He gave her no explanations, he did not look for reasons. Pills were his only answer. Total disappointment.

Arrogant. Pharmaceutical industry backer. Against cannabis even if it's more effective than what he suggests. Told me I couldn't have been in severe pain when I called during extra hours because I could talk.

He is a brilliant physician. He spends ample time with us, asking questions and listening well. He medicates appropriately but aggressively in order to address the problem and get the patient out of pain, and functioning. He is responsive to phone and email requests. Yale has an IV Infusion Center where we can see him same-day to receive IV meds to end a migraine. He's the best neurologist we've had. He's through Yale, a major hospital, so there is some bureaucracy. But worth it.

Dr. Gottschalk has been treating me for a few years now, I see him on a regular basis for treatment, and can call and get an appointment anytime I need one for specialized treatments. Although I've had a long battle and still continue to find a cure he is helpful and compassionate. He takes the time needed to work on our next plan and we continue from there. Out of all my specialists (and I have quite a few) he is my favorite.

I have been seeing Dr. Gottschalk for a couple of years after I lost the greatest headache physician. I managed myself pretty well. I never needed to call Gottschalk urgently. But when I did, I never received a call back. I called the following day and the staff sent him another message. The office called me back 4 days later telling me that Gottschalk is not there this week but a covering provider would be happy to help...4 days of pain and no medication!!! I found another doctor.

Great - very respectful, answers all the questions I have (and I always have a lot). Talks to my primary care doctor to coordinate my treatments with my other health issues.
