Don't go to this doctor. Just called the receptionist (looking for a doctor)/ She said I can't get an appointment until December. I asked her if I became ill if Dr. Getsos would be able to have me come in on short notice. She kept repeating, "His next available appointment is December. Very rude and inconsiderate in my opinion. Get a new receptionist Dr. Getsos.
