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.

If I could give less than one star for him I would. This place doesn't deserve to have even one star. I fell in a street and had some scars on my left hand and knee. I saw Dr Gazmarian (who is not a surgeon) at SCOI in Van Nuys a week after to make sure I don't have any broken bones. They did 2 xRays, and the doctor spent 5-7 minutes with me. I have PPO health insurance. Two weeks after I received a bill of $535 with no break-down of why I am being charged so high. I was shocked. I had never had such a big bill from any orthopedic office for just a short visit and 2 xRays with PPO insurance. They charged me more than 3 times than my orthopedic doctor who is a surgeon in West Hills medical center. I will never go back to this place again, and will not recommend him and this place to anyone. They take advantage of you and your insurance company, and will bill insurance companies as much as they want with wrong codes, and patients will be the victim of this process.

I saw Dr. Gazmarian for an issue with my hip/leg. I had pain in my hip/leg for about 2 weeks which impacted all my physical activities. A nurse took an x-ray of my hip and took me to an examination room. THE DOCTOR CAME AND SPENT ALL OF 5 MINUTES WITH ME. He looked at the x-ray and said the hip was fine. He checked the nerves in my leg and then he extended my right leg outwards and when I told him that was painful, that was the end of the examination. He prescribed some pain medication (which I was already taking some) and said to continue with that. He asked me if I had questions. I was still perplexed about the speed of the visit and did not have time to digest what just happened. He left the room and was gone. I went out to look for him and I only found his assistant in the hallway who told me he was with another patient. He does not listen. His level of care and concern for the patient’s health is ZERO. I would not recommend this doctor to anybody.

Dr. Gazmarian is an excellent doctor. I saw him two weeks ago. I had a long list of questions and he took his time in answering them. We went over my x-rays together and he explained what he saw. He encourages you to call him if you have any questions and to let him know how you are feeling. I am very relieved that I have a wonderful orthopedist. I recommend him very highly.

Burbank, CA – Jul 09, 2016
I was referred to see Dr. Gazmarian for chronic pain in my right knee. When he came in, he sized me up, didn't even look at the x-ray that I brought in and then immediately started talking about injections. He hadn't even looked at my knee, knew nothing (nor cared at all) about me or my normal activity. When he finally decided to take a look at my knee, he had me do things with my left knee when in fact I was there for my RIGHT knee. He was very dismissive and I will not ever go to him again.
