about me

Additional Information
As a physician, my goal is to help patients improve the quality of their health and well-being. I am able to accomplish that by combining the best in technology and skills with compassionate care. Having spent seven years working in Africa, in addition to 12 years of private orthopaedic practice in the Philadelphia area and several years in Los Angeles, I have extensive experience interrelating with people from many backgrounds and with a diverse array of foot and ankle conditions.

My clinical practice is focused on foot and ankle. I am interested in treating common pathologies, such as bunions and hammertoes, but also the more complex conditions, such as total ankle replacement, arthroscopy, and complex foot and ankle reconstructions. In addition, foot and ankle conditions can frequently be treated without surgery, and I am a strong believer in maximizing non-operative treatment before turning to surgery.

everyone at the office was very pleasant and professional . Dr. Eric Gokcen was excellent in taking care of me . He took the time to listen to me, explained what my problem was, showed me my x-rays, performed a few tests on the flexibility of my feet to determine my need for physical therapy . I was very pleased with his pleasant personality as well .

I was actually surprised by how in depth my conversation was with Dr. G. The last time I was there he had an attending/intern and I spent most of my time with that person. I appreciate the time that Dr. G. took to discuss my problem and possible solutions.

This was the first time I visited this office and Dr. They were all very friendly and caring. They answered all my questions (really my grandmoms questions) They took the care to explain what I did to my foot with diagrams that were on the wall. I really appreciated that. They also made me feel relaxed in the office during the exam which is something you dont always receive at some offices.
