There’s really nothing quite like being a parent and we know there’s nothing you wouldn’t do to provide your kids the very best life possible. Progressive pediatric care is a vital component of a healthy childhood.

San Francisco parents want a pediatric practice with board certified pediatricians who celebrate your child’s uniqueness and understand ALL of the factors that contribute to your child’s well being. You want 24/7 access to doctors who partner with you in raising healthy, happy children.

Welcome to GetzWell Pediatrics, San Francisco’s premier primary care pediatric practice, now with two convenient locations providing truly holistic cutting edge care: Cow Hollow and Noe Valley. We serve families throughout the Bay Area and love seeing new patients.

What Sets GetzWell Apart from the Rest?

Not all San Francisco pediatricians are created equal. Many families are trapped in a frustrating cycle of symptom diagnosis and prescription medication, never having the underlying causes of illness addressed in order to achieve lasting wellness.

We believe in considering the whole child in his unique environment. We take a broad and nuanced view of health, acknowledging the emotional, social, environmental and physical contributions. We believe in stimulating the innate vitality and healing capacity of the human body.

We are dedicated to:
  • Deep and enduring relationships with our patients
  • Unhurried appointments with plenty of time to address your questions and concerns
  • House calls as an option for newborn visits
  • Customized treatment plans
  • Health optimization for prevention of common colds and other childhood viral infections
  • Identification and treatment of root causes instead of just symptom suppression
  • Non-pharma treatment options for illnesses like ear infections, colds, coughs, and flu
  • 24/7 direct access to your doctor
  • Same day appointments
  • Minimal office waits

We reject the ‘fast food’ medicine mentality that often goes something like this:
  1. [Sets stopwatch] “Hello, I’m doctor ________. What brings you here today?”
  2. “My son is sick.”
  3. “Oh, it must be ________. Here’s your prescription. I need to run to the next patient. Have a nice day!”
  4. “Doctor, I have one more question…” (Doctor has left the room. Stopwatch is @ 5 minutes.)

The End of the Medicate-Or-Do-Nothing Mentality

Does this sound familiar to you? It happens every day in pediatric practices in San Francisco and all over the country. Our pediatricians take a much different approach. With our expanded view of the human body we take a more nuanced perspective of health. Our larger toolbox means we have more than an Rx pad for treating kids and their families. In addition to pharmaceuticals we may prescribe:

  • Botanical medicines
  • Acupressure and herbs
  • Food as medicine
  • Nutritional supplements
  • Homeopathy
  • Mindfulness techniques
  • Therapeutic diets
  • Psychotherapy
  • Behavior and parent coaching

There are many ways to approach a problem and we look forward to using our expanded tool box to help. We’re committed to partnering with you every step of the way.
