Isaac “Ike” Herschkopf, a psychiatrist who reportedly treated Gwyneth Paltrow and Courtney Love — and who was accused of preying on wealthy patients — has had his medical license revoked by the state Department of Health.

He was at the center of the 2019 podcast, “The Shrink Next Door,” which exposed the doctor as an opportunist who convinced clients to deed their homes and leave their fortunes to him. He was also accused of taking over a patient’s Hamptons home and passing it off as his own.

It sparked a two-year investigation that led to his license getting yanked last week. The Murray Hill doctor, 70, was found guilty of 16 charges of professional misconduct, including negligence, moral unfitness, fraudulent practice and exercising undue influence.

Marty Markowitz, a former patient of three decades who said he was manipulated to cut off loved ones and will his millions to the doctor’s family, testified in the hearing. “It’s an unbelievable feeling — I’m happy and relieved,” he told The Post.

“Undue influence is what this case was really about: People came under his spell and did things for his benefit, not for theirs,” said journalist Joe Nocera, who helmed the podcast.

Herschkopf’s attorney didn’t respond to The Post for comment.

The shrink’s story is being turned into an Apple TV + limited series starring Paul Rudd and Will Ferrell. “I’m told the cast was celebrating,” said Markowitz, adding, “It’s justice for me — what he did to me was unconscionable. Now he’s going to pay the price, to be humiliated by losing his medical license. Now he’s going to be stopped.”
