My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My goal in family medicine is to provide private primary care focused on the individual patient. As a private primary care doctor, I use science, technology, and emotional intelligence to create a therapeutic environment focused on treatment of acute illnesses, optimal management of chronic conditions and finding prevention strategies that work for each patient. My MDVIP-affiliated practice offers services, including comprehensive, advanced health screenings and diagnostic tests, that go far beyond those found in concierge medicine practices.  

I am on staff at Northern Westchester Hospital Center and Hudson Valley Hospital Center. With my new office conveniently located in Yorktown Heights less than 2 miles off the Taconic Parkway, I am able to serve the communities of Northern Westchester County (Yorktown Heights, Chappaqua, Armonk, Bedford, North Salem, Pound Ridge, Somers and Croton-on-Hudson) and Putnam County (Garrison, Cold Spring and Mahopac.) 

My certification in Age Management Medicine has given me the opportunity to study nutrition and exercise - two areas in which I have particular interest. As a private doctor, I enjoy partnering with my patients and guiding them in a joint endeavor for better health. I am fluent in Spanish and German.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Gottesfeld

from Kimm in NY May 30, 2020 for Peter M. Gottesfeld, MD

I remember vividly how I came about being referred to Dr. Gottesfeld. It was in 2005, I had just lost my husband to cancer, and had become more astute about my own health care. I was completely dissatisfied with present physician due to long waiting time. Previous MD, even if I were his first appointment always made me wait, which felt like eternity, never failed. I had gotten to the point… See more

from Elizabeth in NY March 12, 2020 for Peter M. Gottesfeld, MD

Dr. Gottesfeld has been my doctor for 10ish years and knowing he is there has been a constant source of comfort for me. He listens, treats, researches and advises me on my medical care. His attention to detail and curiosity regarding any symptoms I present are amazing. Seeing the same great doctor for so long means he is familiar with me: my history, my quirks, what is normal for my body, my… See more

Our family have been patients of Dr. G for the past 30 years or so. He is always there for us; morning, noon or night and always available to assist our every need, which have been many, unfortunately!

When I had my heart attack, he went out of his way to come visit me in the hospital before and after my surgery. I can’t tell you how comforting it made me feel, knowing that my doctor… See more

from Maria in NY March 12, 2020 for Peter M. Gottesfeld, MD

Dr. Gottesfeld is the best medical doctor I've ever had; he is patient, kind and relentless in ensuring the best care for his patients. He's also quite the sleuth in trying to get to the bottom of a presenting medical issue. We've built a great doctor/patient relationship over the years. His knowledge of my medical issues led to diagnosing a condition that, with medical… See more

from Anna in NY March 12, 2020 for Peter M. Gottesfeld, MD

I grew up in Italy and when I was 10 years old, I fell and skinned my knee on a dirt road frequented by many farm animals. Several days after my fall, I got tetanus and was rushed to a hospital in Rome. Treatment included hourly injections and 3 spinal taps. It was a miracle I survived but to this day any thoughts of an injection sends me to a state of fear and panic. So, when Dr. Gottesfeld… See more

from Anita in NY March 11, 2020 for Peter M. Gottesfeld, MD

I am an OB-GYN. Early in my career I was on ER call and Dr Gottesfeld was the Internist assigned to our emergency room. He would call me when an OB or GYN came into the hospital. After his initial work up on the patient, he always got the diagnosis correct whether it was a miscarriage, pelvic infection, ruptured ovarian cyst or an ectopic pregnancy. I was very impressed with his correct… See more

from Kim in NY March 10, 2020 for Peter M. Gottesfeld, MD

For several weeks following a family vacation to Europe, my mom wasn't acting normal. Without her own primary care doctor, my mom went to the local urgent care facility where she was sent home with suspected with acute food and some nausea medication. My husband and I--both patients of Doctor Gottesfeld and both out of town--weren't convinced of the diagnoses. We texted Doctor… See more

from Bruce in NY March 17, 2018 for Peter M. Gottesfeld, MD

Dear Dr. Gottesfeld,
If my heart could speak it would speak volumes about what it is like to be cared for by you. There would be one superlative after the next but none could top the feeling that your presence conveys about how good and wonderful it is to be looked after by someone who cares and is dedicated to being current and knowing as much as possible about the attention we need.… See more

from Jan in NY March 17, 2018 for Peter M. Gottesfeld, MD

Dear Peter,
After our relationship began about 15 years ago we stopped using full names. I came to you because I wanted a physician who knew my name and what my feelings were. When we met in the hospital you would announce to anyone in hearing distance who I was by saying my full name. It humored me because you were showing me that you remembered our conversations. Your personal… See more
