About Me

Care Philosophy

I believe that my role as a cardiologist is to understand and interpret the medical literature, applying evidence based consultation and treatment which is tailored to each patient's individual needs and situation. I believe that my job is also to help patients and their families navigate the increasingly complicated cardiac health care system.

I had a scan that showed potential blockage and was concerned since I am a runner/athletic. I wanted a cardiologist that could relate to me and was so lucky to find Dr. Getchel. No rushing; listens with empathy; carefully explains things. I did stress testing and at my followup he told me how he had studied my situation and found two studies related to endurance and calcium that fit my exact profile. I was put on a statin and cleared to run again! Was SO impressed with his homework for me!
