Excellent care + service.

Patient friendly and thorough

i had severe debilitating shoulder pain that was destroying my quality of life and still is to this day. I went to Dr Getz for an answer and went through hell and back just to get the surgery i desperately needed. after getting an inconclusive Mri/Mra he sent me to a physical therapist despite the fact my shoulder was falling out of its socket. After weeks of agony pushing through pt he finally considered surgery. The surgery did not get rid of the pain and in fact destroyed my mobility.
Dear Mr. Reeves, We would love to speak with you directly about your experience. Someone from our team will be reaching out to you today to discuss. Your feedback is valuable to us. Sincerely, Rothman Institute

Dr. Getz re-attached my husbands bicep and gave me shoulder surgery. Both were excellent experiences with great results. We would both absolutely recommend Dr. Getz.
in Springfield, PA |
Pain in the right shoulder kept me from sleeping. When I failed non surgical means of medications, chiropractic, acupuncture, and PT I knew it was time to call Rothman. Dr. Getz was able to diagnose the tears. He gave me options which included surgery that took place 11/2015. He thought in 6 months I'd be 100% but, did so good in therapy relief came within 4 weeks. I'm 6 months post and haven't thought about my shoulder for weeks. Now that's something. Thanks, Dr. Getz.
