I've seen Dr. Gottlieb once for an overview of my progress in weaning off meds and to establish a relationship with someone in the mental health arena. The process was easy, i filled out the paperwork in advance, was 15 mins early but was seen at exactly at my appointed time. Dr. Gottlieb is just the person I needed. He listened intently, had me fill in the blanks and made an assessment that i believe was on point.

Very impressed. Wish I could see him more often, off of an insurance basis. He is very knowledgeable, keen on listening to your background as a whole and considering medical, social/environmental, financial and cultural aspects of your history that could influence or target the most appropriate therapy/course of action. I don't understand bad reviews that talk about arrogance or too straight to the point. To me, honesty is the core of the patient/therapist's successful relationship. Very punctua

I worked with Dr. Gottlieb for an extended time, because I needed it. At each visit, he was able to help me see things from a different (more accurate) point of view. As other have stated, he does not sugar-coat anything, and for that I was and remain grateful. In additional to very helpful and successful psychoanalysis, he did a masterful job of managing my medications. Dr. Gottlieb might not be the right fit for everyone, but I recommend that you give him a try.

Dr Gottlieb is not bubblegum therapy. He sugarcoats nothing. He is direct, sometimes brutally honest, and he doesn't care about keeping your business. He is the best Doctor I've ever seen; the most knowledgeable human being I've ever met. If you are fearless and are unafraid of looking yourself in the eyes in the mirror, nobody is more qualified than Gottlieb. I consider it such a privilege to work with him, and he is responsible for so many personal breakthroughs. He is simply incredible.

He offers a perspective that is unique from most other therapists. He is very knowledgeable and I would recommend him to friends and family.

My D started seeing Dr G while she was fairly stable and on 4 medicines. Dr G slowly took her off all of them. She then because unstable which caused her to miss a couple appnts. Due to the missed appointments, Dr G stopped accepting insurance only for her and said she would need to pay $175 cash for each appointment and pay for missed appointments. We could not afford this so she had to stop seeing him just when she needed help the most. She ended up in the hospital. Stay away
He is cold, uncaring, arrogant and I am amazed that he has a practice at all.
