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 40 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.

My son, in son the spectrum and John Getz relates to him very well. If my son does not understand what he is asking, he will ask him in another way until he knows my son understands him.

My mother-in-law brought my daughter to this appt. w/ a list of my concerns. Mr. Getz listened & made a diagnosis. Then, he explained the meds to her as well. Mr. Getz has always been good with my daughters. They don't have as much anxiety going to the doctor, knowing that he will be there to see them.
