I had never met this doctor before and she had never seen my son before. Upon entering the exam room, she did not introduce herself to myself or my son. She opened the door, looked at my son and said, "you need to sit on your mom's lap". She did not ask about ANY of his recent symptoms. She did not ask us any questions AT ALL. She did have a good manner with my son for the VERY BRIEF exam that she did. She told us that his condition was caused by a virus and there was nothing she could do. Overall, we waited almost an hour (from arrival to exam) and were seen for about 2 minutes.
Very detail oriented. Really listened to my daughter's concerns
Dr. G is always great!
The only complaint I have is how long the wait was. We were called into the room right away but waited 45 mins for the Dr to come in.
Dr. G is the BEST!
Dr G helped me make a difficult decision for my son by educating me on the pros and cons of the situation. because she spent the time with him and with me, my son is a different child. he is flourishing, happy and confident. we owe this to Dr G! we will forever be grateful.
Excellent care! thank you
We went to the Saturday walk in hours and had a much better experience that I thought possible. Everyone was very professional. My daughter is a student who was only in town for the weekend and we able to get the tests we needed.
I was very pleased with the friendliness & courtesy shown by all staff members.
Dr. G is always respectful and friendly with the kids. She talks to them and to me. It's a pleasure to see her.
great doctor and office
We've always received excellent care, that's why we continue to see Dr. G.
The doctor was very friendly and took extra time to play with my baby. The PA/Nurse was very efficient with the vaccinations and explained each one thoroughly.
Dr. G is our absolute favorite and has put my mind at ease countless times now with my 3 month old. She listens, cares and respects what I have to say. It's because of her and the nurses that I continue to bring my children back to this office!
Dr. G is an outstanding clinician. She is compassionate, thorough, careful and considerate, and she's incredibly smart and perceptive. I will never go anywhere else for care for my kids.
i appreciated that the doctor included both physical and emotional/social issues during the check up
She was wonderfully warm and made my son very comfortable even though he was feeling a little shy.
Dr G is very knowledgeable and friendly. She works well with children. She is easy to understand and relatable.
Does a great job!
Nurse and Doctor were super nice
The provider completed an examination and then clearly explained her diagnosis.
Dr G is awesome my girls love her they don't want to see anyone else . She puts us all at ease . She's easy to talk to and very relatable
dr g is wonderful with our son and genuinely cares about his health.
very pleased with doctors care and concerns
Dr. G. is the BEST!
My son is extremely phobic about shots, not only did Dr. G attempt to assuage his anxieties, she communicated his fear/concerns to the nurse administering his injection who was extremely efficient made it painless. Granted he still freaked out about the blood, but he admitted he didn't feel the shot. After he was done crying, that is. :-)
Dr G is an amazing physician who can easily calm and relate to children (and ease worried parents). My daughter has adored and trusted her since she was a toddler.
I am so glad that when my son needs to be seen that I have no trouble when I ask for him to be seen by Dr. G. She is so good with my son and he feels comfortable with her. We think she is the best!
Love Dr. G!
My son was very cranky at this visit due to his sickness and Dr. G. was very understanding and accommodating, much appreciated!!
Because of Dr. G's kindness, vivacity and sense of humor, I have two daughters who actually look forward to going to the pediatrician! She is really an outstanding doctor: very good at relating to children, tweens and teens, but also very clear and direct about what the kids need to do to stay healthy.
The staff and Dr. Gotkiewitz were excellent. I have been coming to this practice for years and would recommend it to anyone.
She was extremely friendly and kind with both my child that was there for the appointment and my son as well.
Always a great experience coming there!
We love Dr. G....she is simply the best!
We love Dr. G!!!!! She is the best and LOVES children. She should have been a teacher!
Love Dr. G.!!!! There are not enough words to express how wonderful she is!!!! She has helped transition a medically frail child to a wonderful and healthy adolecent. She has taken a lot of time to ensure that he is well educated, and comfortable in all his care. She has always gone above and beyond to allow him to voice his own feelings and to encourage him to ask questions about his care. She is amazing, she makes it a priority to know her patients not just medically, but as a person...she is the best!!!!!!!!
Dr. G is the best!!!!!! She takes her time and realy knows her patients!!!! I love that she address us as parents, but she also ensures that she is talking with our children. She spends time making sure that both the partents and the children are well educated concering their health care. We just love her!!!!!!!!!
Always satisfied with the the doctors at the office!
