Dr. Gotkiewicz provided excellent service and was very informative, respectful and courteous to both my child and me.
came into sick hours, though a short wait it was a timely appointment. Dr. G was through and did not appear rushed despite busy sick hour and that time was almost complete. Did not make me feel silly for bringing my child in despite the fact he did not have an ear infection.
very happy with care, service and support received every time we go call or interact with ALL staff
I appreciated that he offered us options, even if we ended up in the ER anyway (he couldn't have predicted that). My son and I appreciated his warm demeanor.
my experience is always excellent with Dr. G and the rest of the staff at the office. they make me feel comfortable during our stay and they always seem to be in a good or cheerful mood, even when they're busy.
I have been going to this office 25 years with my children.
Dr. Gotkiewicz is fantastic! The nurse, Alicia, was outstanding! She had to give my son 3 shots and her technique, compassion, kindness & patience with him were wonderful!

Exceptional doctor, was a patient since birth. Shortly after birth in 1999, Dr. Gotkiewicz diagnosed a condition that many doctors at Children's Hospital in Pittsburgh were impressed and surprised he found this condition so early. If not for his quick diagnosis, the worst possible outcome could have happened.

We very much liked Dr.G's professionalism and bed side manner with my girls. Very easy going, he knew how to talk with them to get the answers he was looking for without overwhelming or making the girls nervous or shy. Very in depth and I felt like he listened a lot more than the nurse practitioner we normally see, where I feel rushed.
This is our 2nd visit to his practice, so happy we made the switch
