What People Say About Dr. Paul Gotkin, DPM

Dr. Gotkin is an old school professional. Not going to take 20 minutes chatting you up, but if you want someone who knows how to fix your foot, this man is the real deal. He saved my world in 2018 when I had multiple fractures in my foot. He is an extremely polite and considerate doctor. I will never go to a different doctor for anything foot-related.

Dr. Gotkin rocks! He helped me with a torn tibial tendon issue that had the podiatrists at a big time health center stumped. I was really treated well by him and his office staff. I will always remember the great care I received and recommend his office highly.

Dr. Gotkin is a professional attentive and caring podiatrist. He was able to diagnose a problem that several other doctors could not figure out. He made me feel at ease during my procedure. I would highly recommend Dr. Gotkin.

I was very pleased with my treatment at Treasure Coast Podiatry. I was always treated with professionalism and care. Dr. Gotkin helped me when no one else could and always made me feel as though I was in safe hands (and feet!) Thanks for helping me!!

I could not be more happy with Dr. Gotkin, and his entire staff. First of all he resolved my serious foot problem and thoroughly explained each phase of the process to me so there were no surprises. I definitely would and already have recommend him and his practice to friends. I am very impressed

Not happy with Dr. Gotkin at all. I had two appointments with him and when it was time to schedule surgery, I found out at the checkout desk that it will be with a brand new surgeon that hasn't even started in the practice yet. I was told what needed to be done, only to find out he wasn't going to be the Dr. to do it. They also kept scheduling necessary appts (consults) to collect co-pays. I do not like how this was handled and will seek out another practice for surgery.

Excellent Doctor. He is a caring patient Dr. that is extremely knowledgeable and competent. I have been to several surgeons before him for my injury, so I know what I am talking about. Him and his staff are kind and never make you feel like a burden. I would trust him to take care of my own family, from my grandmother to my own child. Sincerely, Mark Trust

Poor excuse for a doctor. Everyone gets the same treatment. Shots and braces. If you want to treat the symptoms, this is the place for you. If you want to resolve the issue, go elsewhere.
