I have seen Dr. Getzels 3 times and I find him knowledgeable and straight forward. He like many Drs. are always rushing and he does speak fast but you have to listen. He will answer questions if you direct them at him. He seemed to understand my personality , the kind that wants information and he explained to me my blood test results in detail. he took everything I told him seriously. He also called me directly to talk about the second set of blood results and referred me out to a specialist

We have found Dr. Getzels to be very knowledgeable, patient and listened each time my husband had a visit with him. We would highly recommend him to our family and friends.

Always had a bad feeling after talking with Dr. Getzels. He DOESN'T LISTEN, it's like he already has his mind made up. Maybe it's arrogance or insecurity or something. For prescription refills, you have to contact the pharmacy instead of his office. As you can imagine, things get lost in the shuffle: the pharmacy blames the doctor's office (who blames the pharmacy).

This Doctor along with Intercoastal Medical Group has the practice of double billing patients for two office visits during annual physicals saying they have a right if the doctor talks about any ongoing health problems, it is considered a follow up! If you are looking for a doctor I would look outside this group.

Missed diagnosing pre-diabetes for 2 years. Discovered after full blown diabetic test result with fasting blood sugar = 150 on third annual visit after which I reviewed prior test results. Recommended metformin. I declined and saw endocrinologist who did further tests and advised I was not a candidate for medication (LADA diagnosed). Would not let me interrupt to ask questions during his summing up monologue, after which I forgot the questions which his comments raised.
