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.

At every stage of the process thus far (repair to the left knee- ACL and Menisci) Dr Getelman and his team have been professional and accessible. All of my concerns and questions have been patiently addressed. The care that I received was the absolute best. I am three weeks post surgery and I continue to receive daily contact through their web-portal and I am on schedule for a complete and full recovery. I would recommend Dr Getelman to anyone in need of knee repair.

They tell it like it is, have a no-nonsense approach and take your wellbeing seriously. Conservative approach to rehab which I respect as previous surgeon who operated on my other shoulder fast-tracked rehab which that may have contributed to a re-injury and now facing repair to the repair.

His surgical expertise is of the highest order. My arthroscopic shoulder repair was unexpectedly complex. Only a surgeon with Dr. Getelman's experience and talent could have made the necessary surgical decisions, once he was within my shoulder. As a surgeon myself, I recognise and appreciate the decisions he had to make on the spot and the consummate skill with which he carried them out. I am so grateful and thankful to have chosen him. I recommend him highly. Good luck. Angus MacDonald MD FRCS(C)

Dr. Getelman from the first time he saw me as a patient wanted to help. My surgery was delayed for several months because of the Covid 19. He promise me that he would do my surgery when we got all the clearances we needed. The day of my surgery he was very supportive and kind. I felt very good when Dr. Getelman called me to see how I was doing after my surgery. That meant a lot to me. Dr. Getelman is a wonderful surgeon with a great gift. Now it's my turn to work hard on my recovery. Thank You Dr. Getelman for all your help. God Bless You!
