I am please with the medical care that I have received from Dr. Gettler. I am particularly grateful to him for recommending that my wife and I address our toenail fungal issues. He said that as we age, untreated fungal issues can spread throughout the body, and they can become more difficult to stop. With Dr. Gettler's help, I am now free of toenail fungus--for the first time in literally decades. To sum it up: Great advice and great treatment..

I absolutely love Dr. Gettler's style. He is very thorough and explains everything he finds. He is super professional and friendly. I have been seeing him for about 5 years for various conditions and for annual checkovers. He looks at everything and tells you the name of what he finds and whether you need to or can do anything about it.

The lack of professionalism I experienced with Dr. Gettler & staff was just horrendous and terrifying. I was yelled at, hung up on and put on hold because of THEIR error. I was upset because no one ever followed up with me or my insurance company so when I called to ask for an explanation as it was well over 6 months and about 5 phone calls later I was given the run around. I would NEVER recommend this practice to anyone, save yourself the trouble and find a doctor who cares about his patients!!
