Responsible for saving my life! As he told my wife " I walked through the valley of the shadow....". My situation was impossible, almost everything that could go wrong did. I'm alive today because of this man's incredible knowledge and commitment. He's truly a blessing to his patients.

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!
