Patient Reviews


I felt well taken care of. All my questions (I had many) were answered. Everything was explained step by step right before surgery to ease my nerves. I was well prepared after surgery and knew what to expect. – Anonymous Patient


I appreciated the personal attention. Dr. Getelman was very easy to talk to, he was very clear in explaining my condition and the procedure. He was very efficient while maintaining a very good patient/doctor interaction. – Anonymous Patient


Everything. Most positive experience I’ve had with any Doctor. He really cares about his patients and takes the whole procedure and recovery very seriously. He tells it like it is and is genuinely concerned with your medical condition and bringing his patients back to full recovery. – Anonymous Patient
