Approach

At GetzWell, we reject the “fast food” model of health care that’s the norm in medicine today. Our San Francisco pediatric practice offers the kind of progressive and highly personal care you and your child deserve.

We don’t just give you our expertise. We give you and your child our complete attention and all the time it takes to deliver thoughtful care. Our office visits are unhurried—typically 45-60 minutes compared to the typical 12 in a traditional practice—so we cultivate a true relationship with you and your child and always have the time to get to the heart of your concerns.

Guided by the latest science, we believe in stimulating the innate human capacity for healing. That’s why in addition to scientifically rigorous Western medicine, we utilize research based integrative modalities such as environmental and functional medicine. And before we write a prescription or recommend a test, we consider every aspect of your child’s life: diet, sleep, brain, emotions, family dynamics, their physical environment, and more. That’s because our goal is to identify and treat the root causes of illness instead of focusing solely on symptom suppression.

Our practice is comprised of board certified pediatricians and other advanced degree nurses, all with prestigious training from the nation’s most respected academic institutions: Yale, Tufts, Stanford, Columbia.

And in addition to the superb care we offer your child, we also take care of you. As a direct primary care (DPC) practice, we’re designed to fit your lifestyle. We offer same day appointments and minimal waiting time in our warm beautiful offices, which some say are more like a trip to the spa than to the doctor. We make old fashioned house calls for your newborn. And no matter how old your child is, you have 24/7 access to one of our providers.

We may have the advanced degrees and the clinical knowledge, but in the end we are humans who love taking care of other (little) humans. We love GetzWell, and we know you will too.
