This was a follow-up, post-hospitalization visit. Called Dr. Gottfried when an emergency took place and he and his team responded right away with the right instruction to get to the Emergency room for symptoms of a stroke.

Dr. Gottfriend listens, understands and is empathetic. He tells me when i am wrong, when i am right and works with me on finding best path. I appreciate him. While I know he is earning a living, i don't feel like he rushes me at all and always calls me back, even for the things that probably annoy him. We moved and still travel about 30 minutes just to see him.
