Dr. Getelman explained the severity of my knee injury so I completely understood what was happening and how to avoid further issues while I waited for my insurance to approve my surgery. Dr. Getelman's team saw me on a Tuesday and expedited by case to perform surgery Friday morning. After fighting so hard for my MRI that proved my injury was significant it was really comforting to have Dr. Getelman and his team support me. I would definitely recommend Dr. Getelman.

Straightforward and easy to deal with
Van Nuys, CA |
I absolutely recommend Dr. Getelman. He and his team took excellent care of me and were able to tell me exactly what to expect. Appointments were prompt with little or no wait time and the staff (with one unfortunate exception) were friendly and helpful.
in Pacoima, CA |
Definitely recommend dr getelman to friends and family and to anyone looking for an ortho surgeon. He and his staff were very professional . The attention to any detail or concern that I had was dealt with speed and patience. Follow ups daily on the app was just a helpful tool to keep in contact. I never felt alone after my surgery. I have and will continue to sing praises to his work,his staff and the facility.
in Simi Valley, CA |
Dr. Getelman, is in my opinion one of the best surgeons I've ever come in contact with. Yeah at first his bedside manner didn't seem all that great but, after a couple of visits i experienced otherwise, he is very very professional, he listened very well to all of my questions and concerns. In turn he gave me very honest and upfront answers, and come to find out, he is pretty darn cool. He did a great job with my shoulder, he is an excellent mechanic. YOU CAN TRUST HIM!!!, and his staff.

Dr. Getelman is a great surgeon, performed arthroscopic shoulder surgery on me. My pain is getting better it's only been day 4. 5/5 in skill. As far as socially dr. Getelman just isn't a nice Doctor / person, he makes you feel like he just wants the money. Ignores comments you make , poor bedside manner. However , Dr. Getelman compensates his poor attitude for his excellent skills and I rather have a doctor with a poor bedside manner and excellent skills than the opposite, I recommend him!
in Toluca Lake, CA |
Very satisfied.
in Van Nuys, CA |
Dr. Getelman is very professional. After a few more appointments I became more comfortable with talking to him and asking him questions. His team is incredible - before, during and after the surgery. His explanation of exactly how he was going to perform the surgery. HealthLoop was a wonderful way to help me keep organized daily on what I needed to do before the surgery date. I was able to have all my questions asked as well as give them all the information they needed.
in Santa Monica, CA |
Extremely knowledgeable and professional. Immediately identified (later confirmed via MRI) my problem that had been misidentified by another doc. Clearly spelled out my options and educated me throughout the surgical and post-surgical process.
in Simi Valley, CA |
Very competent, good patient interaction, provides clear explanation of condition and the procedure to be performed. I experienced an excellent outcome.
in Woodland Hills, CA |
Great doctor. Very competent and great bedside manners. Extremely happy with Dr G and the whole experience
Van Nuys, CA |
His bedside manner is terrible. In fact, most of the time he's staring into the computer with his back toward you. How can he examine me when his looking the other direction the entire visit? He's also dismissed my questions and seems to be either moody or passive aggressive. I can't decide which one in the handful of visits of been to him, but I'm unimpressed as a whole.
