I love coming to Dr. [Gottlieb]! I started out as a patient with Chesapeake research for a bunionectomy.I have had both of my bunion removed with Dr. Gottlieb . The result where spectacular ! I was finally out of pain that I had suffered with for years. So when I had some heel pain I booked my appointment with Foot and Ankle specialist again Dr. Gottlieb took amazing care of my feet. Love this practice!!
Ms. Raven, Ms. April, Mr. Jervan, the entire staff made me feel soooo comfortable! I am so appreciative!
I liked Dr. Gotlieb very much, but once the Surgery was over, I never saw him again before my three day stay was over.
