Had my first appointment with him yesterday, I was absolutely blown away, he came to get me as soon an I walked in and talked to my the entire time, it felt as though I knew him for years. He is absolutely not judgmental and talks to you as an equal and knew my symptoms before I even had a chance to tell him! Blown away, truly. I will be a patient forever.

Dr Getachew and Rebecca Snader NPC are incredible. I am an engineer and very good at troubleshooting in my field of knowledge. I've never been to a Health Care practice that has better or more detailed testing & analytical process for diagnosing the cause of symptons (troubleshooting). In my case with Narcolepsy (esp. daytime tiredness & cataplexy). Latest technology and lastest medical diagnostics. Dr. Getachew & Rebecca Snader NPC are extremely intelligent and accomplished.

Dr. Getachew has always been there for me. I have seen him for my Multiple Sclerosis since 2007 and I want to stay with him. I trust him beyond all others in Ohio. He is capable and willing to talk about many subjects, including several questions I've had about MS, etc. that wander off-track, but that's just my fault. The point is that he lets me talk and does listen. Some doctors cut me off quickly and are not worth a dime. I've found him to be a well-read, well- educated, caring human being.

I saw MANY Drs, none helped me with constant fatigue. We discovered I had 3 health issues that were entwined, thus masking each other. Dr. G's expertise/experience in multiple fields allowed him to methodically diagnose/treat one at a time. Each was addressed before moving to the next. Meds had to be checked/balanced against each other. Some did not interact well. Some my body didn't tolerate. Dr. G spends meaningful time with me and has dramatically improved my quality of life.
