Pediatrician Sick Visits/Virtual Visits

At GetzWell we offer same day appointments in both our locations and virtual/telemedicine in lieu of office visits when appropriate and safe. In some cases we may be able to accommodate house calls for acute needs.

We do everything possible to prevent the inconvenience and stress of a visit to the emergency room by scheduling same day appointments if your child is suffering from, for example:

Receptionist on the phone and viewing a screen in the lobby of one of GetzWell's San Francisco pediatrician offices.
Pediatrician sick visits are available at GetzWell's two San Francisco locations. We also offer virtual/telemedicine visits.

Virtual Visits may be an option for the following:

dr getzelman at a desk with computer
Dr Nicole at the computer
multiple devices on the desk being used

In the event that a same day appointment is determined not to be medically necessary, we will appoint you with a provider the following day.

As a precaution during this COVID era, GetzWell may require a provider to first conduct a screening by phone or video in order to determine the necessity and safety of an in person versus virtual visit. We hope you understand we are keeping you and our staff as safe as possible by implementing such protocols and apologize in advance for any inconvenience.
