Dr. Getelman is very straight forward and professional. He is thorough about the problem and possible options. He and his team are wonderful and very helpful. His PA Katie is very quick to respond to questions and concerns. I am beyond happy with the care and service I have received concerning my shoulder surgery.

Professional and knowledgeable Dr. Getelman and his team made my first surgery ever a pleasant experience. They kept me well informed and made it easy to trust them with my arthroscopic surgery. Connecting with the care team online and having daily check in's after my surgery was a massive help to my recovery, it helped me relax and feel confident going into my rehabilitation. One thing to mention is that throughout the week he bounces from Van Nuys and Thousand Oaks offices, something to keep in mind if you have urgent needs you may need to take a longer drive.

I highly recommend Dr Getelman for any knee surgery. He was recommended by a fellow Orthopedic surgeon as being the best at knee surgeries. I like doctors that specialize in in one or 2 body parts not like other doctors that will see any kind of problem. I want someone who will do it right the first time. The procedure he did for me a lesser orthopedic Doc probably wouldn’t have done and may have taken the easy way. I would highly recommend Dr Getelman.
