Care Philosophy

The doctor-patient relationship is the core foundation for the delivery of optimal health care. For reasons of economics, access, and consolidation, all too often this foundation is breached and the end user, the patient, is left alone. My pledge is to provide you my fullest expertise in diagnosing and planning the most appropriate intervention to restore maximal function and optimal health in a most compassionate, caring and expeditious way. I am here for you.

Dr. Gotlin is everything you could hope for in a doctor. Incredibly knowledgeable and experienced. Warm. Friendly. Speaks in a language I can understand. Every friend I have sent to Dr. Gotlin has felt the same. I've been seeing Dr. Gotlin for one reason or another for over 20 years.
in New York, NY |
As always, I was seen promptly. The preliminary interview was done by an MD resident, who was courteous, efficient, and friendly. Then I spoke to Dr. Gotlin, who was his usual cheerful, effective sell. He took the time to explain all treatments alternatives to me and answered my questions patiently. I am happy with the treatment plan. I particularly commend these gentlemen on their tact. My weight problem was addressed sensitively.
