Several years ago, my husband was in SRRMC for gallbladder issues. Dr. Gottlieb was the surgeon on call and despite the GI doc wanting to remove it, Dr. G suggested that we wait because the issue did not seem that bad. Thank God we listened to him! A few days later, the problem had passes and he still had a gallbladder. His competent assessment of the issue and not pushing for costly surgery, built our confidence in his judgment. A couple of years later, my husband had a hernia that needed repaired. Dr. G did the procedure, no issues, recovery was great. Then last year, I had to have a tumor removed from my breast. Of course, he was our choice for the surgery. And as always, it went perfectly, healed fast, and everything was just as he told us it would be. We highly recommend Dr. G for all surgical needs you may have.
