I found Dr. Gotkin competent, caring, intelligent, sensitive and very concerned with his patients' well being.. I have no qualms in recommending him to friends and colleagues, which I have done. His staff is also competent and sensitive. I have found with my other doctors that the doctor may be competent, caring and sensitive but the doctor's staff may not always be attentive to patient's need. I did not find this with Dr. Gotkin's staff.

Review: I came into Dr. Gotkin's office with a large callus on my foot. I also have peripheral neuropathy, and the pain from the callus was bad even with the neuropathy. Dr. Gotkin treated my callus. I now can walk and have my stability back. It was life changing.--Glenn Lucas

Thanks for doing the surgery on my dad's foot. It was worth the trip from Michigan. Doc, you're 8.0 in the operating room! You rock! -Luke Jensen, Men's French Open Doubles Champion, 1993

I went to Dr. Gotkin with severe pain in both of my legs. I could barely walk. Dr. Gotkin found that I had no pulses in my legs and sent me to a vascular surgeon who performed angioplasty on me. I feel so much better. Now I can walk my dog. I appreciate all the work Dr. Gotkin and his staff did for me. -Damascus Gibbs

I felt very comfortable coming back to see Dr. Gotkin. He has helped me considerably in the past healing my leg ulcers. If it wasn't for Dr. Gotkin I would be walking around on one leg! -Stanley Skorupski, Nuclear Submarine Captain, Thomas Jefferson, Alexander Hamilton, James Monroe

I had seen 3 or 4 doctors prios to coming to Dr. Gotkin's office. Nobody was able to diagnose my condition. Once I was seen by Dr. Gotkin, he immediately suspected that I had an arterial clot and sent me straight to a vascular surgeon. The vascular surgeon confirmed Dr. Gotkin's diagnosis and performed surgery. I couldn't thank Dr. Gotkin enough for his amazing care. -Jeffrey Emmets

I was seen in June 2014. Dr. Gotkin sent me to a vascular surgeon after I complained of excessive pain in my right leg. The vascular surgeon found three blood clots and performed surgery to remove them. Dr. Gotkin literally saved my life.

Great experience! He treated my daughter's flat feet and she is now pain free. She is developmentally delayed and sometimes can be a difficult patient, but I felt he and his staff handled her special needs with helpful professionalism.

Dr. Paul N. Gotkin's Credentials



Accepting New Patients

Yes, this doctor is accepting new patients


Biography

Our doctors and staff always consider the individual needs, best interests, comfort and convenience of our patients. Certain elective surgical procedures are not appropriate for all patients. This is predicated upon the patient's life style, vocational commitments, physiological age and health, emotional and financial status. On occasion, Doctors at Treasure Coast Podiatry have performed pro bono surgery for hospitalized members of our community suffering from life or limb threatening pathology subsequent to severe diabetic infection or vascular disease. As a Board Certified Surgeon, my fundamental tenet is based upon the premise that most elective surgery procedures are unnecessary. Many foot deformities and disorders can be managed via conservative stratagems such as change in shoe gear, medications, orthotic devices, and certain lifestyle modifications. With over thirty years of experience, it is my personal credence that surgical options are the treatment of final recourse. Board Certified, AmericanBoard of Laser Surgery, Podiatric Surgery.
