There is no publicly available rating for this care provider for one or more of the following reasons:
  1. He or she does not see patients in the outpatient clinic setting.
  2. He or she sees patients, but has not yet received the minimum number of Patient Satisfaction Reviews. To be eligible for display, we require a minimum of 40 surveys. This ensures that the rating is accurate and statistically reliable.

I live in Harrisburg and grew up in the Wyoming Valley. I drive almost 2 hours to see Dr. Long. I wouldn't trade his professionalism for a closer doctor. I have been his patient for over 20 years and will continue to see him only.

The doctor was very efficient and explained what was happening.
Aug 28, 2015
Dr. seemed to be a little bit in a hurry. Dr. didn't see any problems so he didn't address any follow-up care or preventive skin problem care. Basically said. He basically said my moles, etc., were normal and I was done. Dr. was concerned about mark I had removed a couple years ago and did spend more time examining that area on my cheek (face).

I always feel at ease when speaking with Dr. Long about my concerns and confident in the information that is provided to me.

*Dr. Long always provides excellent care. He answers all my questions and never makes me feel rushed.
Aug 3, 2015
I have seen Dr. Long for a number of years and think highly of him. He has the capability, sometimes lacking in specialists, to offer friendly, informative explanations in reply to questions that are asked of him. There is never a hint of rushed impatience or condescending answers.

I was very upset when I left the clinic. I had a mole on my cheek and on the crease of my arm. I am a young woman and these both cause me stress and all the doctor told me was that they are not cancerous and not to worry. Who wants to walk around with moles on their face and have the one in the crease bother you when you wear 3/4 length sleeves with elastic. I was very disappointed this time. The mole on my ear , most people don't see as my hair covers it, but again I am a 46 year young woman, who wants these things on your body when they really don't belong there. I have such anxiety over it and now I don't know if I want to return or go to a plastic surgeon and have them removed. I was crying in my car after I left.
Jul 27, 2015

Feb 23, 2015
We think Dr Long is a very competent professional. Though in the past his schedule has been so packed that we have agreed to see an intern or nurse practitioner instead of waiting months to see him. When we advised him of the problem with rescheduling, he promptly suggested I email him directly via MyGeisinger to circumvent future rescheduling issues{illegible or inappropriate content} very pleased with that recommendation!
Feb 11, 2015
Dr. Long is an excellent dermatologist and extremely sensitive to the needs of his patients. We need more like him.
