We have 6 kids, so we see Dr. Gettleman on a regular basis. And I have to tell you, Dr. Mark Gettleman ALWAYS GETS IT RIGHT! Whether I am bringing in a child for an earache, rash or allergy, he gives me the correct diagnosis and the correct medication, ointment, etc. that fixes the problem right away. And what I love the most about Dr. Gettleman is that if my child doesn't need anything, ie. child has an earache or virus will go away on its own and doesn't require antibiotics, he will tell me that and not prescribe me anything. And he's never been wrong! I don't want to unnecessarily give my child a drug if he/she doesn't need it. We saw a DIFFERENT urgent care doctor once (on a weekend when Dr. Gettleman's office was closed) who prescribed antibiotics to our son for an earache after telling me that there was not even an infection! I never filled the prescription and just monitored my son and his earache went away. My husband and I LOVE and APPRECIATE Dr. Gettleman's conservative approach to treating ailments in our children. He is an outstanding pediatrician and I'm thankful we found him!
Whenever I take one of my kids to see Dr. Gettleman, he is always smiling and happy. His nickname is "Goofy M.D." My kids love his cool ties and fun shoes, especially his Lion King tie!

Dr Gettleman makes you feel like a number. He is the final reason my sister and I decided to leave Great Destinations. He spends less than 5 minutes with you and doesnt take the time to properly look into symptoms and give you answers. I took my daughter in for what I thought was a bladder infection. He didnt even take her diaper off to look, said she seemed fine and sent us on our way. Moms, you know when things don't seem right, so I took her to a different office for a 2nd opinion. The other office took the time to do some quick tests and found within 30 minutes that she had a pretty severe infection. The same thing happened with my sister's child when she took her to Dr Gettlemen for a cough she couldnt shake. Doc did a quick once over, said she was fine and sent her on her way. After a 2nd opinion at a 2nd office she was found to have early pneumonia. We used to leave this office with questions in our heads but thinking, they are the doctors, they must know best. All I know now is we are both relieved to not go to this office anymore. We all pay good money for our healthcare and expect to receive good service in return. He is one of those doctors that make you feel like he is doing you a favor by gracing you with his momentary presence.
