I appreciate the negative survey from the cancer patient of my partner's whom I operated on and will hope to improve my follow up on patients who do not have a good outcome


Patient Comments (10)

Dr Getz disappeared. He was fired from Boise Orthopedic Group. I have a chronic mesh infection after surgery last June. I received little assistance from Dr. Getz. His nurse told me not to send photos of a massive infection that I could not control. Very tough situation for almost a year now....more

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.
