    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.

    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.

    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.
