Learn about this Doctor

Care Philosophy

Our doctors and staff always consider the individual needs, best interests, comfort and convenience of our patients. Certain elective surgical procedures are not appropriate for all patients. This is predicated upon the patient's life style, vocational commitments, physiological age and health, emotional and financial status. On occasion, Doctors at Treasure Coast Podiatry have performed pro bono surgery for hospitalized members of our community suffering from life or limb threatening pathology subsequent to severe diabetic infection or vascular disease. As a Board Certified Surgeon, my fundamental tenet is based upon the premise that most elective surgery procedures are unnecessary. Many foot deformities and disorders can be managed via conservative stratagems such as change in shoe gear, medications, orthotic devices, and certain lifestyle modifications. With over thirty years of experience, it is my personal credence that surgical options are the treatment of final recourse.Read more

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.
