Dr. Stefan Getzik commemorated a personal and professional homecoming last March 2, when he opened a chiropractic practice in downtown Washington.
A South Strabane Township native, Getzik had practiced in Ohio for three years before going back to restore himself locally. Getzik Family Chiropractic went for 117 N. Main St. on that late winter season day, and was just gearing up when the pandemic started to wreck the area two weeks later on.
COVID-19 has actually had an unhealthy impact on numerous services, to be sure. But, apparently, not to the one next to Joe's Bakery.
“Things have actually gone actually well,” Getzik stated on Tuesday afternoon. “We're seeing about 340 people a week. That's actually great.”
So great that the practice is moving to a bigger place a short distance away.
Individuals might get bent out of shape over the coronavirus or the weather condition, but Getzik plans to help them readjust now, at the present area, and in a few weeks at 70 E. Beau St., Suite 100, in the city.
Getzik prepares to relocate there Feb. 25 and start seeing patients March 1– nearly one year to the day he began on North Main.
Area, he said, is the primary factor for the switch. The clinic will have more room, inside and out, at the East Beau site. The building will accommodate two modification rooms, a large therapy bay, a massage room and a roomy waiting area.
A major difference, however, is Getzik Chiropractic will have an adequate parking lot at the brand-new website– he estimates about 30 spaces. That is an advantage the existing practice does not have. Getzik stated a number of his clients now park at a meter along North Main, completing for areas with clients of other businesses.
“This location isn't huge enough,” said Getzik, a North Franklin Township local. “It has served its function, gotten us to where we needed to go. And now we'll be able to accommodate method more people.”
Getzik has actually employed a front-desk worker and is trying to find a massage therapist. For now, he is the only medical professional on personnel, but hopes to include one a year from now. He also plans to broaden into Wheeling and eastern Ohio.
East Beau will be the 4th county area from which he has operated. Getzik previously had centers on South Main Street in Washington and in North Strabane Township.
For now, his focus is on Washington. “We chose to devote to being in the city for 5 years, to reveal the city we care about the people.”
