Dr. Gettys asks all the right questions and seems to immediately understand my symptoms. Plus, he takes the time to answer all of my questions. He is able to quickly and accurately make a diagnosis, and fix the problem, every time. He always puts my mind at ease. My husband and I don't mind driving pretty far out of our way for appointments with Dr. Gettys, because he is the best.

I always had an Internal Medicine doc for my personal physician until I moved to TR. Discovering Dr Gettys was my good fortune. He is a Family Medicine doc who is more knowledgeable and well versed on broad ranges of issues than my previous caretakers. He judiciously knows when to treat, and when to refer. When he comes in to the treatment room, he has already reviewed your file, and is current. He listens attentively, explains clearly and answers all questions.

I wish the Practice had not joined GHS. It has nothing to do with Dr Gettys. Dr. Gettys has the best nurse ever Eileen. I am totally satisfied with my Dr. and Nurse.
