I showed John Getz the plantar's wart on Ben's foot that we have not been able to get rid of and he told me to buy a pumice stone and grind away at it after soaking. At an earlier appointment I had with Lauren the PA for dermatology she gave me a print off on how to get rid of the wart. And it started working at eating away at it. Using the pumice stone has really helped us to grind it off too. We have tried every kind of over the counter product for over 2 years with no success, the wart is almost gone now! Thank you!

There was no follow up care.
March 17, 2016
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.
