HumanizeMD Profile

When I was 13 years old, I was the victim of a horrible motor vehicle accident. Even before that happened, I had been fascinated by science, but it wasn’t until I watched doctors heal me that I became interested in a career in medicine. After looking at my options, I chose to specialize in urology. With urology, many conditions can be treated and cured – not in months or years, but days and weeks. This is important to me because I am a problem solver. At work, I put that energy to great use.

Urology provides us with very effective ways of eliminating health challenges people are facing. And, often, these medical issues are game-changers. When you have incontinence or impotence, as two simple examples, your quality of life diminishes. Neither of those issues are necessarily life-threatening, but being forced to live with them changes the entire way you view everything.

At home, I’m lucky enough to have three amazing children, aboy followed by two girls who keep me busy, for certain. However, they are great kids and one of my favorite things to do is to spoil them. I try to be there for them as much as possible. I help with homework and share my love of learning with them, and I have every confidence that these three kids are going to turn out to be amazing adults. I even think my son may follow in my footsteps someday.

Raising kids and working around the clock keeps me busy, but I have a few hobbies that truly ground me and allow me to relax. I consider myself a musician and I love to play slow rock and jazz on the piano. I’ve turned to my keyboard for more than 35 years to unwind. And, I admit, I watch some TV. I don’t think it’s the most productive activity but I do enjoy it, and Netflix allows me to choose various things to watch so I don’t get hooked on anything in particular.

When outdoors playing backyard sports, turns out I’m a decent pitcher and my quarterbacking skills are not bad either. I enjoy playing with family, friends and the kids, but when I need quiet, I read. I really like fiction, especially Stephen King.

I was born in Ukraine and grew up in Brooklyn, where I learned to speak Russian and Hebrew. These days, I live in Lakewood where there are plenty of patients who speak both – close to my favorite sushi place as well as Kimball Medical Center. It’s important for me to give back to the community, which is why I volunteer time to several charity care programs. I find it gratifying to help all people in need. In this case, however, I can make a real difference in the lives of people who could not otherwise afford my assistance.

Whether it’s in private practice or doing charity work, I realize the extent of how people are affected by the medical issues I treat. These are not superficial problems, but some procedures can fix the problem almost immediately. It’s not a matter of treating but literally helping people live a better life. I know from speaking to many patients that people have been able to turn their lives around. Urological medicine is almost always the key to enhancing someone’s quality of life.

When a doctor has the opportunity to really change someone’s life, it’s an incredible feeling. I can’t tell you how many people have come to me after seeing other physicians who were not successful in treating them. Diagnosing a patient’s problem and fixing it...what could be more satisfying for a medical professional?

Hear From Our Patients

I am a patient of Dr. Gotesman's for almost 2 years. I was referred to him by members of my community, all of whom said he has an excellent bedside manner, and explained issues surrounding prostate cancer in a way nobody else did. After I met with him, I agree wholeheartedly. He spent a lot of time and effort to make sure I understood all the issues and questions I had, and he did it in a very clear and informative way to a "lay" person. I can't imagine anybody would think otherwise.

Trust is not a word that I normally use when discussing doctors. However, I couldn't have a conversation about Dr. Gotesman without mentioning it. He is the consummate professional beyond his superior technical skills. He's a fantastic listener and a straight shooter. He has a quiet confidence, and an amazing talent for putting a patient at ease. He should also be given credit for assembling a fantastic team, and establishing a culture that makes every single visit an amazing patient experience
