There is no publicly available rating for this care provider for one or more of the following reasons:
  1. He or she does not see patients in the outpatient clinic setting.
  2. He or she sees patients, but has not yet received the minimum number of Patient Satisfaction Reviews. To be eligible for display, we require a minimum of 30 surveys. This ensures that the rating is accurate and statistically reliable.
  3. He or she is a community provider, not a Geisinger-employed provider. Community providers tend to see patients in their own private outpatient practices, which we do not survey.

Dr. Getz appeared fully invested in my well-being, as did Dr Gabinsky. I appreciate the fact that Dr. Getz asked Dr. Gabinsky for a second opinion on the proper plan of action for my condition. This shows that these doctors work as a team and trust each other.
