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. Blansfield was very professional and thorough. He was very patient and knowledgable and answered all the questions we had. It was also great that he came to Lewistown and we did not have to travel.

I was thankful and impressed that not only the surgeon visited me but also part of his team, as many as 5 individuals were present. Made me feel like a patient and not just a number. All were very professional & knowledgeable for my concerns.

Dr. Blansfield was very thoughtful during my appointment. Overall made me feel at ease and has a great "bedside" manor. Seems to be a sincere caring surgeon who listened to me.
