Litchfield, CT |
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.
in Avon, CT |
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.
in Seymour, CT |
Dr. Christopher Gottchalk was the most arrogant and condescending physician I have ever met.. I waited almost a week and a half for MRI results and I had to call and leave 3 messages. he is a verbally abusive man and he humiliated me in front of my daughter. This type of person should not be seeing patients, he lacks empathy and compassion. Doctor/Patient relationships should be built on communication and respect, he has neither. He may be smart but his bedside manner is horrendous.
in Wallingford, CT |
I waited over an hour in the waiting room. He wasn't helpful to me at all. Waste of time.
