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.

I traveled 4 hours each way to maintain my care with Dr. Mascarenhas. Although I've transitioned many of my care issues to my new community, after seeing a cardiologist held in high regard there/here, I knew he couldn't come close to the level of competency of Dr. Mascarenhas.

Dr. Mascarenas was very thoughtful and deliberate in listening to my questions and concerns and then discussing options with me.

Dr. Mascarenas is a very professional, courteous, friendly, considerate and thoughtful cardiologist. My husband and I both have him as our Cardo physician and we are extremely pleased with him. Would recommend him very highly! He took his time and was very thorough asking about my terrible experience due to an allergic reaction to Levaquin that was recommended for Pneumonia which was diagnosed by another physician at Palmerton hospital, where chest exrays were taken. This put me in anaphylaxis shock, couldn't breathe and ending up in St. Luke's ER. Many large doses of Eppy had to be given, which affected my heart. Dr. Mascarenas was very thorough in obtaining my records from that hospital. Then he called me at home and discussed the results of my echocardiogram which was taken at St. Lukes. I find this all to be exceptional on his part.
