GetzWell Pediatrics begins its third year of offering integrative pediatrics in Noe Valley in March, 2010.

San Francisco, CA, March 13, 2010 --( GetzWell Pediatrics begins its third year of offering integrative pediatrics in Noe Valley in March, 2010. GetzWell, the only integrative pediatric practice based in San Francisco, was founded two years ago by Dr. Julia Getzelman. Since commencing operations at the corner of Church and 29th Street, the office recently added a second pediatrician, Aarti Nasta, MD, to their roster. Other professionals in the office include Janis Mandac-Dy, PNP, Rebekah Sypniewski, RN and Mary Janowitz, RN, a board certified lactation consultant. GetzWell is currently accepting newborns, infants and adolescents into the practice and encouraging pregnant moms to set up prenatal interviews.

Julia Getzelman, MD reflected on the first two years in Noe Valley recently: “We are gratified that so many families in San Francisco have embraced our vision of an integrative medicine approach to pediatric health care and wellness. Our approach reaffirms the importance of the relationship between practitioner and patient, focuses on the whole person and makes use of all appropriate therapeutic approaches, healthcare professionals and disciplines to achieve optimal health and healing.”

GetzWell is holding a Saturday open house on March 13, 2010 to allow interested parents and families to meet the pediatricians and other professional staff from 1 pm to 3 pm. The open house will offer organic milk and cookies to all children (and parents who are accompanied by a child). Rsvp’s are encouraged.

GetzWell Pediatrics emphasizes longer appointments, individualized vaccination schedules, prevention and building long-term relationships with families. While the doctors provide old-fashioned house calls for newborns, its innovative approach includes western medicine plus a focus on food as medicine, homeopathic cures and herbal remedies.

GetzWell offers an “open access” policy, meaning that established patients receive same day access for acute matters and generally are able to see their doctor for routine care within one business day. GetzWell Pediatrics has regular office hours on Monday to Friday, 9 am to 5:30 pm and provides members with direct 24/7 access to their physician via telephone and email. The main office phone number is 415-826-1701 and the website address is
