My husband had an appointment in Dr Gottlieb’s office in Danville, Ca. We are from Sacramento, CA He came highly recommended by another surgeon. Dr Gottlieb M.D. gave us quality time he did not rush us through the appointment. He went over my husband’s records asking detailed questions regarding his previous surgeries, We went in for a consultation for a hernia repair, after the examination my husband was informed that at this time no surgery was necessary, I could see the relief on my husband’s face. We were very impressed with this visit and would highly recommend him to our friends or anyone else who needs a surgeon.
