i have been a patient for over 20 years and he has been amazing caring for me with my stomach issues. he is compassionate and caring. he is an amazing doctor.

Dr. Gettenberg had a very poor attitude which was highly disappointing since he is an NYU dr. He blamed my IBS solely on anxiety and offered no help. He gave me a high fiber food diet list and it turns out that a more competent and dedicated GI dr. at NYU disagreed feeling that increased fiber would worsen my symptoms. He also walked out while I was talking and left me with two young female residents who offered conflicting advise.I would never go back to him as he is undedicated and unempathic.
