5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Ipanema Tummy Tuck - Greenvale, NY

Dr. Gotkin was very informative from beginning to end. I never felt rushed by him and he answered all of my questions, which were minimal because he always went over everything with such detail. Five weeks out of surgery he still keeps a very close eye and always tells me to call if there are any issues at all, which there have not been thank goodness. He is a true artist in his field and did a beautiful job. I am a 60 year old woman and was concerned about my age, but the outcome was still wonderful.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

No Children; Yet a Much Need Tummy Tuck - Greenvale, NY

Since my tummy tuck, I am more confident in my overall appearance and presentation. As a business woman, I am now able to dress more appropriately without being self conscious. I feel and look healthier. My outlook on my future is brighter. My husband and family members who know about the procedure are so happy to see me so happy.

1 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Lipo and Breast Aug. New York, NY

He is the absolute worst. Beware of his cold mannerism and most importantly lack of ability to communicate and listen to what you want. He is not to be trusted. Very expensive and not worth it at all.

4 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

My Experience with Tummy Tuck and Lipo - Greenvale, NY

My experience with Dr. Robert Gotkin was great - from the beginning when I sat down nervously for my 1st consultation to post surgery care. He explained the procedure and possible risks carefully. I felt at ease and not pushed into doing the procedure. It's been 3 months and I have been healing nicely. I am extremely happy with the way I look - and this procedure has spurred me on to modify my lifestyle overall. I am getting more sleep, eating well and am more active overall. Very pleased with the procedure and would feel comfortable going back to Dr. Gotkin for any other procedure in the future.
