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 30 surveys. This ensures that the rating is accurate and statistically reliable.
  3. He or she is a community provider, not a Geisinger-employed provider. Community providers tend to see patients in their own private outpatient practices, which we do not survey.

Dr Ross.

He is the best doctor I have ever dealt with. He takes his time and listens when I have concerns. I am constantly singing his praises to other people who are not satisfied with their current doctor. What more can I say? HE IS GREAT!!!

This dr. blames my problem on old age dismissed fractures of knee my regular care provider had the MRI completed and could not believe Dr. Ross did not call me to discuss it. He even faxed him a copy thinking he may not have received one.

I have an ortho practice 1 mile from my house with a walk-in clinic Dr Ross is the reason I drive to Wilkes Barre
Apr 29, 2016
Overall my experience with the doctor and physician assistant was great. They were thorough, carefully explained instructions for follow-up care and as to what the diagnosis for my problem was. I did feel that I spent a very brief period of time with Dr. Ross, perhaps more time was unnecessary as i spent a great deal of time with his PA.
