Dr. Gietzens staff fit us in for an urgent visit. They were very nice. Dr. Gietzen was very efficient and was able to do an exam and the testing that needed to be done in the same visit. By the end of the visit we had a clear path for what needed to happen next. I appreciate how quickly things were taken care of.

Oh my gosh!!! I wish that Dr. Gietzen was my everything Dr. The entire staff was over the top. Helpful and smiling faces. Dr. Gietzen didn't just hear me, he listened to me. Not all Dr.'s do that today. He put my apprehension at ease concerning the minor procedure he had to do to diagnose my medical condition. He then explained what he thought was wrong and the treatment to correct it was going to be. I would highly recommend Dr. Gietzen to everyone I know. Thank You!!!

Having the experience of working with Dr. Gietzen's father, I expected nothing less than what he learned from his dad. I wasn't disappointed! Dr. Gietzen has always been through, courteous and follows through with instruction, care and getting to the bottom with any problem presented by the patient, even sending you to another doctor more specialized than him. That's why I recommend him to all my friends.
