Run, don't walk away from this office!!!! Dr. Gottlieb seems like a nice person and she definitely seemed competent when I went for my consultation, however, the administration of her office is the worst that I have ever encountered. I need to have a procedure done that is a result of having the BRCA2 gene mutation; it seems as though the office admin only wants to schedule procedures that are cosmetic and would not require filing insurance claims. The thing that bothers me the most is that at my consultation, Dr. Gottlieb talked me through what would happen at my outpatient surgical procedure. Gottlieb's MA took photos to submit to insurance for preauthorization but my insurance company never received anything from this office. I also stressed the need to have the procedure completed prior to November 1st since my deductible had been satisfied for the fiscal year. Wherever I end up going, I will pay a substantial amount more money and I don't work since my cancer diagnosis in 2018

Very personable but fat graft did not work post breast cancer . Had another patient call me to say how pleased she was but surgery made no difference at all.

I had a breast reduction in 2017 and she did an amazing job. Her staff was polite and professional. But the reason you go is for the surgeon and the results and I could not be happier. I healed great and was back at work in 2 days.

Dr Gottlieb is the best. She has a bedside manor like no other and is caring. A true compassionate physician that knows her trade. I have used her for two of my surgeries as well as filler and botox. She is the best.

When I select medical care providers, the professionalism with which the office is run matters. Hence, I would not likely recommend Dr. Gottlieb to fam/friends. Competent doctor. Nice lady. Poorly run office. Especially due to her personal demeanor, keen disappointment when a minor billing dispute emerged in which she and her team bear some responsibility. Dr. G. made no efforts to resolve it, despite polite appeals. No reply to requests for a call back. No response to email inquiries.

Dr. Gottlieb understands the art of plastic surgery and my results exceeded my greatest expectation. She has an amazing bedside manner and really takes the time to explain everything. From the first consultation you will see how much she truly cares about her patients. I couldn't be happier with my breast reduction. My body is now perfectly proportioned and I no longer experience back and neck pain. I am so fortunate to have found her. She is so incredibly talented.

She removed my breast implant on 6/2. The preop visit was ok, 1week after surgery she pulled the tube dispite the lg. amts of drainage daily. During the next 2 wks., I went 2x's for needle aspirations. The 3rd wk. a tube was reinserted. 7/10/16, I was admitted to the hospital for 9 days with 2 bacterial infections, on two IV antibotics & tube change. Now home on IVs &tube. & she left 2grossly disfigured skin pouches that may need surgery to clear up the infection. No f/u from her since 7/10

Has a considered touch with cosmetic approach-not overdone. Understands how to obtain a professional appearance in her patient.
