I first saw Dr.Gotlin for a consultation more than 30 years ago, when he weas working at MSG with the Knicks, as to whether I should have knee surgery. He spent twenty-thirty minutes with me going over my options. The last 7, 8 years I have gone to Dr. Gotlin for Euflexxa injections for my now aging, arthritic, post-op knees. The Euflexxa works. A year ago I fractured my collarbone in a bike accident. I called his office to find that Dr Gotlin was in Israel. However, he called me back that night (yes, from Israel!) saw me in his office, jet-lagged, the next day, and set me up with an excellent surgeon that afternoon, followed by surgery five days later. He is amazing. I trust Dr. Gotlin 100%, he is a total pro, as knowledgeable as one could ask for, and I know he genuinely cares about me as his patient. I, and my knees are lucky to have found him.

I went to Dr. Gotlin a few years ago because I had been having hip/lower back pain for months. He was so friendly and got to the bottom of my issue and I haven't had pain since. I have been to so many doctors who either are knowledgeable OR have a great bedside manner, and Dr. Gotlin is the rare kind that is both. Kind, friendly, and smart. Thank you thank you thank you!

I have been seeing Dr. Gotlin for over 17 years and he is in my book -THE BEST! I have always been physcially active and so I'm accustomed to have the parts break down from time to time or maybe lots due to my age and what i have done in the past. He is kind with patience, listens intently and dives deep into finding the issue at hand. He is someone always to trust and I know we will get to the bottom of the issue and then solve it. He never leaves a stone unturned.

Dr. Gotlin started treating me at the very beginning of his career for lower back pain and dysfunction. He is gifted with manual techniques and always gave me my life back every time I saw him. I've been his patient for over 20 years because he is the BEST. There's a reason that he is always awarded Top Doctor year after year. Always warm and personable. I've been lucky to have been under his care for decades.

Dr. Robert Gotlin is absolutely my favorite doctor!! He is just the best doctor in so many ways. I first went to him about 10 years ago, with pains in my legs & back. Quite a few other doctors said I had back problems & just needed pain management for my back, requiring injections in my back. Those injections never helped me. So I then went to Dr Gotlin. Dr Gotlin diagnosed my problem very quickly & accurately. He said it was my hip, not my back! So after years of being treated incorrectly, I finally found Dr Gotlin, who correctly diagnosed my problem & because of the proper diagnosis, he was then able to give me the correct treatment!!! I was just so happy to have found Dr Gotlin!!!I now always go to Dr. Gotlin, with all my orthopedic problems. He will always give me very honest assessments of all my treatment options. I can always depend on him to be totally honest, in a pleasant & calm way. Other doctors have not been as honest & kind as he is. I highly recommend him to anyone!

Dr. Gotlin is deserves the highest accolades for his dedication, caring inspiration and service to the field of Physical Medicine and Medicine in general. I first saw him when he oversaw BI North and headed up the team who saved my career after an ACL injury and which rehabbed me back to a leaping dancer. Through over 25 years I have returned to his guidance and care for a variety of injuries (I play hard, and sometimes pay the price) and have trusted his knowledge, impeccable technical advice and care and have overcome things that would have tabled my career otherwise. He is focused on excellence and has assembled amazing teams who are also dedicated to the highest goals of healing and helping return patients to wholeness. I am grateful to have also been able to attend his monthly educational and professional roundtables, which are dedicated to advancing knowledge among a wide variety of health and fitness professionals. My life has been better for knowing him.

I have been seeing Dr Gotlin for over 20 years. He has literally saved me from many, if not all, of my many injuries. He is truly one of the most caring, personable and knowledgeable doctors I have ever met and I am gifted to know him. If there is something required, he refers you for whatever is needed, and therefore he has always ultimately found a resolution to all of my issues. I cannot recommend him enough. He is an exceptional doctor and human being.

Started using Dr. Gotlin about 25 years ago. He has been a god send to me and my family. He has helped me with many different body ailments and was instrumental in my entry and recovery to bi-lateral knee replacement. It is almost exactly one year to the day of my bi-lateral replacement and it couldn't have gone anymore smoothly. I have referred many family and friends to him over the last 2 decades. I recommend him with the highest possible grades.
