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 went to my care provider because I am having pain and can't sleep. She said to take Aleve for my pain and told me to see DR. Grover, for pain management. I am a diabetic and have been told never to take over the counter drugs except Tylenol. The Aleve made me sick, in the past I was allowed to take Vicodin and did not abuse them.

Dr Abys-- accent caused unavoidable problems at times, but easily resolved. No issues with it at all.

This appointment seemed to focus more what routine tests need scheduled, than the problems I was experiencing.

I have been misdiagnosed prior to my last appointment and have lost faith in the doctor. The most recent appointment I felt like I was not taken serious and rushed.

This Dr. is friendly, but does not seem overly concerned about my problems. She seems in a hurry to get on with her next patient. I always come away feeling like it is highly unlikely I will ever feel that I have a good Dr./patient relationship. Her accent is a hindrance in understanding all she says. She gladly repeats when asked but it is still a problem.

Dr. CHAMPA D ABEYSINGHE, MD. was very good.

Have seen this particular lady three times. This visit was certainly the most friendly of the three. Her physical assessment skills could use a refresher course however (and I know this skill set). I did not feel her ENT checks were good enough for that particular visit complaint especially. As proof of this statement, the record will reflect that I indeed had to see my PCP nine days later for more treatment. Having said this, my PCP, Dr. Szulawski, is excellent in all of these areas! He is a great doctor- always spends as much time as needed, very thorough and friendly.

I have recommended Dr. Abeysinghe to family and friends and they like her as much as I do.

Im a healthy woman , I feel this Dr is looking for some thing just to get me in there . She seems to want me to have labs done alot , and i was referred to a specialist about my throat , I have a slight problem with dysphasia and talking with the specialist we decided not to go through any procedures for it yet till it get worse . My family Dr was pushing the issue about having something done about it ! really Its MY choice I should nt be badgered about things. I dont feel the connection to her , while examining me , she checked my ears , nose and mouth , then took the stethescope on my neck for only a second and then other side of neck not even long enough to hear anything ! pointless, I went to LPN school , ran ambulance and now work at nursing home ,, ,I know you dont hear things that quickly ,,, she is just trying to make it look good ,,,,, Im really annoyed by her and Im searching for another dr outside of Giesinger , I tryed to get another one in Giesinger ,and i got contact that they have to agree ,,,still with this unprofessional DR . I stepped out side of my waitroom on last visit ,,and i could see her down the hall on pc ,not waiting another 45 min again ! PLease DO something about this
