Meniscus Surgery
I'm so happy with SCOI Doctors I have seen. From day one of having knee pain until the day of my surgery. Dr. Getelman met with me and explained what was happening with my knee. He recommended surgery and also said he would try and repair as much as he can. Surgery went well now 2 weeks post-op and will start physical therapy. Thank you to all his staff and nurses for a quick process from diagnoses to treatment. I am a nurse and have 20 more years to work. Dr. Getelman is a wonderful doctor I trust and will definitely recommend him to my family and friends. Thank you, Dr. Getelman!!!!!!

Dr. Getelman has been very knowledgeable and informative throughout my entire process. He caught a root tear in my meniscus that was missed at Kerlan and Jobe. I am finally pain free after four months of wondering what was going on with my knee. Their communication system is fast and easy. I highly recommend Dr. Getelman and SCOI Van Nuys to all my friends and family.

Great Doctor
He is very good at communicating what the problem is and what the solution is. He made sure I knew what was going on every step of the way. He was ready for the unexpected during surgery and was able to complete the repair. He is one of the doctors that I would recommend to anyone without a moment of hesitation.

Shoulder is Better
After falling, I lived with the complications from a stage 5 separation of my shoulder for nine months. I went to see Dr. Getelman and we discussed the outcomes of continuing to ignore the problem versus surgery. I elected for the surgery and my recovery is progressing for the better exactly as we discussed.

Wonderful care!!
Dr. Getelman and his staff have been great, checking in daily on how I'm doing. I love how easy it is to ask questions and I get answers very quickly! During pre-op, the nurses were very attentive and kept me informed on all that was going on. I highly recommend Dr. Getelman and his office and staff!!

Amazing doctor
Dr Getelman is extremely knowledgeable and very thorough with his explanations of what the surgery entails. I saw other doctors for my shoulder but didn’t feel comfortable having them perform the surgery. After the first few seconds talking to Dr Getelman, I had full confidence. It is really tough to find a good doctor that takes TRICARE because the doctors break even or lose money on the cases, but that’s the insurance I have as an active duty military member. I’m pretty sure the only good doctors that take TRICARE are ones who just do it because they appreciate service members. Three deployments took their toll on my body and I can’t thank Dr Getelman enough for performing the surgery and getting me back to work.

Dr. Getelman is great at explaining what’s going on and what to expect. On my first visit with him he even drew a sketch of what my damaged knee was going through. That’s the kind of personalized care that gives a patient confidence in their doctor.

Excellent work from Dr. Getelman and his team at SCOI. My diagnosis and treatment moved expeditiously. I felt my options for medical care were well explained, and all efforts were made to get the best possible outcome. Recovery after surgery is tough, but I feel have the support I need to achieve a good outcome.

If you are looking for a dismissive doctor who cannot wait to get of the room...then Dr. Getelman is your guy. He offered no treatment aside from the idea I should learn to live with my pain, because he could not see a reason for it, based on only a physical assessment of just touching my injured area of less than 10 seconds. I left in tears and will be looking for another doctor.

Dr. Getelman is the best Doctor in his field! He reconstructed my ACL 19 years ago and I have not had a problem with it. I know I’m going to get excellent results with my Rotator cuff surgery as well. He explains everything thoroughly and excellent bed side manners.
