  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.

she was so compassionate and really took the time to listen to my concerns. I do wish she would have explained the side effects of the medication better, however.

Lisa is an exceptional health care provider. She is totally professional while being friendly and caring. She took the time to listen and provided good advice and medical care. I have total confidence and faith in her abilities. I have recommended Geisinger Medical Center to many of my friends because of the staff you have working there.

Having had kidney stones in the past & experiencing the similar pain, I wanted an X-ray taken to know for sure it was not another stone. I was denied an X-ray and given prednisone.
Jan 21
Lisa was very understanding of my problem, and asked plenty of questions to clarify. She eased my mind considerable as I feared a major injury to my ankle that would prevent advancement on my fitness program. She was very thorough in advising me on what fitness activities I could continue and which I should avoid, and for how long. Lisa is always pleasant and very caring; I would recommend her to anyone.
Jan 11
Lisa is outstanding. Very knowledgeable and good at explaining things so that I can understand.

Lisa is a model for all doctors in terms of discussion and analysis. She was friendly, concerned and insightful. She explained the medical condition, gave me options and listened carefully to what I had to say.

Aug 25, 2015
When the appointment was scheduled, I asked for an appointment with a Dermatologist. I thought we were seeing a Dermatologist. This appointment was a waste of time and gas. The PA informed us we would have to see a Dermatologist.

I received a message from a nurse saying all my test results are normal. I can see my results and they are not all normal. When questioned this with the nurse and asked for doctor to call me directly, I received a call from the nurse. She said the blood in my urine could be normal for me or due to my menstrual cycle. For one, blood is not normal for me and can be compared to past testing. Secondly, I had a hysterectomy at age 32 and this is in my records and has been told to doctor(s) in past. She proceeded to tell me that the doctor is going to order a repeat urine test and if I am still insistent she will order a kidney ultrasound. Now, I am still not well, and am considering transferring out of the Geisinger system all together. I don't come to see a doctor for fun, in fact, I try to avoid the doctor as much as possible. I should be treated with respect and the test results should be investigated to make sure there is no issue. Blood in urine, rbc/wbc in urine not normal. Even if no infection showing on urine culture{illegible or inappropriate content}. should look into what may be causing this.
