Dr. Getz allowed me to participate in a clinical trial drug that worked extremely well for my psoriasis. At the end of the trial, Dr. Getz has worked to maintain my improved condition. I am grateful for my experience at Dundee Dermatology

This has been a great experience, as Debbie has been struggling with this skin affliction for years and the uv b has cleared it up wonderfully, and Dr. Getz has been wotking toward a more permanent cure for us. The staff here is absolutely top notch, from the receptionists to all of the nurses and technitions. Many Thanks to you all!

Dr. Getz has always been honest about my treatment options and is always willing to spend enough time with me so to understand everything. Great psoriasis doctor!

Stay clear of this place. Plenty of other Dermatologists around and easier to find. Don’t bother asking them what your insurance covers because all they will do is vaguely give you an explanation you won’t understand. Call your insurance first, but just to be safe. Don’t even go here. Rude and condescending staff members as well. They love hearing themselves talk. My wife left this office feeling so low. I’ll be reporting this office to the American Academy of Dermatology and filing an ethics co

I cannot praise this doctor better. As someone who is pretty anxious about any skin changes he is always so kind to me when I go running to the office. Also, he has always been right about what's on my skin. Even before the biopsy results come back. I completely trust him and appreciate his expertise

Dr. Getz is an excellent physician with years of experience. I found the facility to be really clean and organized. The staff members are really wonderful. I feel fortunate to have found such a great practice.

I came to this place with a Pscoriasis skin problem. I have been to numerous skin Drs. and have spent a lot of $ trying to get it under control. This is the only place that has been able to help me. Dr. Getz is a great Dr. And his staff is very polite and friendly. Looking forward to watching Dr Getz and his staff help others with this type of skin problem, or any other skin problems they might have. I strongly recommend them.
