About Dr. Samuel Gettler

Dr. Gettler graduated Joel Barlow High School and and received his BA from the University of Pennsylvania and medical degree from the University of Connecticut School of Medicine. He attended New York Medical College for residency where he served as Chief Resident. He has published articles on the treatment of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma and pyoderma gangrenosum. Dr. Gettler, a board-certified dermatologist, opened his office in Stamford, CT, in October of 2006 to provide dermatology services to the greater Stamford community. All patients are seen and cared for by Dr. Gettler who does not employ physician extenders. Dr. Gettler is pleased to accept most major private insurance plans and Medicare and is able to offer fair fees for patients with no insurance or state-sponsored plans or for patients paying at the time of service (prompt payment discount). As more area dermatologists restrict their hours for medical dermatology patients, drop insurance plans, and utilize physician extenders to provide medical services, Dr. Gettler offers a personalized and convenient way to have your dermatology needs provided by a board-certified physician. Dr. Gettler is a member of the Connecticut State and Fairfield County Medical Societies, Connecticut Dermatology Society, American Academy of Dermatology, American Medical Association, and the American Board of Dermatology; he is licensed to practice medicine in the state of Connecticut.

I was a new patient seen today for something I have had an issue with for years. Dr. Gettler was ver professional and knew immediately what the issue was and provided a solution. The wait was non-existent, the moment I finishedmy paper work I was placed in a room and seen right away. Would recommend 100%

He seemed to know his stuff but his bedside manner was awful. I could hear him yelling at someone when I was waiting for him to come into the appointment room. When I told him I was at the dermatologist becauseI have an upcoming wedding, he gave me extended unsolicited advice about how I am past my reproductive prime and should start trying to have children immediately after marriage (I'm 31). I wish I would have redirected the conversation more quickly, but I was too stunned to say much.
