Testimonials

“I miss Julia and the GetzWell Pediatrics team! Unfortunately, I moved away and am now in the churn and burn of fast food pediatrics. Every time I visit my children’s pediatrician I feel like they are reading from a script. For example: I’ve been there about 6 times for well child or illness related exams and EVERY TIME they ask me if I have any guns in my house (!?!?). Conversely, when I was with Getzwell, everyone there knew me and my children on a very personal level. I was completely spoiled by the in-home newborn visits, personal after-hours care and relative ease of getting appointments. If you live in SF, I can’t recommend them enough!” Heather G.

“If you want the very best, alternative minded pediatrician in San Francisco, Julia Getzelman is your doctor. She spent two hours with us, making sure I understood everything about my twins’ health.” Maureen R.

“Even though we were impressed with her when we met with her during my pregnancy, it was another thing altogether to watch her interact with our newborn. I really feel like we made the right choice.” Laura L.

“Julia Getzelman is our pediatrician and we love her. We switched to her after we were unsatisfied with the more ‘old school’ practice we were taking our 3 month old to. She really takes the time to cover everything at the appointments and does not rush us.” Jenifer B.

“Julia is the doctor that we all wish we had (pediatrician or otherwise). Kind, patient, smart, open to alternative practices and vaccination scheduling. She listens carefully to moms and trusts their intuition. So many other doctors write off new parents’ concerns about their babies as being hyper-nervous.” Lisa V.

“We use Dr. Getzelman for my 4 month old son. We really love her. She is easy to talk to, very relaxed, and almost hyper responsive! She responds to email day and night, which is awesome. She is flexible regarding vaccines–we use an alternative vaccine schedule (more visits, less shots per visit) and she is great with that. Her background is in functional medicine–gut health, probiotics, etc.”

“We’ve been clients of Dr. Julia Getzelman for over a year and we’re THRILLED to be in her practice. She’s one of the newer breed of doctors who acts like a person, with a great sense of humor, and a welcoming manner that invites the participation of the parents in the entire process of raising kids healthy.”

“We LOVE Julia and her staff…I cannot say enough! We started at another practice and after 3 miserable experiences switched to Julia. Her clinical skills are excellent and she is great with babies (our daughter is 5 months old). She gives us a lot of reading materials, etc. She is pro-active, not reactive! She responds to emails 24/7–it’s really unbelievable.” Jennifer K.

“With Dr.G you never feel hurried, she knows all of her patients because of the small client base, and she frequently checks on patients via email. Also, Dr.G is really good with keeping the toddler happy and not forcing things to happen if the child does not want something poking his body.” Yukie F.

“Dr. G is absolutely amazing, extremely knowledgeable, and my 16 month old is mesmerized by her.” Wayee C.

“Julia is our (wonderful!) pediatrician; we joined her practice about a year and a half ago. Julia diagnosed our (now) 2yo’s dietary sensitivities and helped change him from a subdued boy that always, ALWAYS had a runny nose and hardly ever even tried talking, to a busy, active, happy, clear-breathing little guy who just yesterday told his dad a long, complicated story that lasted at least 2 full minutes.” Lara W.
