I am on chemo and was operated on for a perirectal abscess. Dr. Getz was in the OR that day for my last-minute surgery. I had consulted with Dr. Henson earlier that day. Dr. Getz's bedside manner and demeanor put me at ease immediately. At my follow-up appointment, I appreciated his sense of humor. However, another abscess cropped up days later. After a few calls, his nurse practitioner told me he said to follow-up with my oncologist. Due to that, I've suffered more. I feel I was denied care.

First, the office receptionist is beyond great, also including all of the office staff they all are warm, professional and friendly. Dr. Getz is just the best ! A very skilled and gifted Dr. in every way. We are very satisfied with his knowledge and the time spent to always answer our questions. He is obviously a great surgeon..but, he is very much a people person who has a warm and caring bedside manner always. I am so thankful, for the referral to Dr. Getz and will always pass his name on.

Very kind and compassionate, and very attentive. He is also an excellent surgeon; procedures he has performed for me and my wife were flawless.

Dr. Getz takes whatever time is necessary to explain his diagnosis, surgical options, risks and prognosis for recovery post-op. He has excellent bedside manners and communicative skills and exudes confidence. I would not hesitate recommending him to my family or friends.
in Nampa, ID |
Dr Getz was thorough and operated on me for a Thyroidectomy for Papillary Cancer. I like his demeanor. Gets right down to business but has a good sense of humor. Very professional. I have a friend that has had Dr. Getz operate on her family several times and he did a great job. His office called and followed up with me. I would use him again.
