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.

She sent me to the ER for Testing, I never heard back from her about follow up care, I called the office the next morning, was told they would look over my test results, and get back to me. I never heard back

Dr. Abeysinghe - I am 5 yrs. out from cancer + I have a tendency to forget some of my tests, she always is on top of that and makes sure I get these tests done. I trust her completely. She was the doctor that insist I go to a gynecologist for more treatment even though my PAP smears were negative - they found I had ovarian cancer. She saved my life.#9. Excellent.

Drs. in general don't have any idea what pain means to a patient. They would rather some one else treat it. Pain clinic, phy. therapy.

Dr. Abeysinghe is a very caring, compassionate doctor. I just love her!

Doctor very caring and showed interest and concern on my problems

Dr. Abeysinghe is one of the best doctors i have ever had. She doesnt just dismiss you and impose treatment plans. She takes the time in giving you choices that would be best for you. She also fights for you with the insurance companies to make sure you get on the best medications for treatment.

Have already talked to others about her.

This was a yearly checkup. No problems just general wellness check

I am glad for her advice to take a bendable cane on my vacation to Vegar. I hate to use my cane but I found out I needed it a lot in the crowds and my knee and leg really bothered me with all the walking. A+ to my doctor.

During my appointment NO mention was made to me that she wanted me to see a kidney specialist. I found out when I was scheduling my appointment for a return visit to Abeysinge...I questioned it and the scheduler was to send a memo to Dr so that she could call with an explanation of the concerns I had....No call was received...I looked over my charts on myGeisinger.com and realized some of my blood work showed a level of concern...NONE of this was discussed with me....just small talk and telling me I needed to get ear wax softener for my left ear....This level of incompetence is NOT acceptable in a primary care physician....Needless to say, I am seriously considering changing Drs.

Dr. Abesinghe is very helpful.
Jul 7, 2016
she recognised there was more of a problem with my finger than I thought and she immediately made an appointment with a surgeon .

I think I shouldn't have to wait as long as I do for the doctor to come in after the nurse takes you back into a room.
June 16, 2016
she was very nice, but I felt with the injury I had and not being able to walk well and she said to have minimal weight bearing on my right foot that I should have been offered crutches(she did say I needed a boot and the office did not have any), I understand the office probably does not have stuff for orthopedic issues but if a provider actually sees that a patient is having issues with walking and they recommend minimal weight bearing they should at least offer or get the patient crutches until they can get to the orthopedic dr. I also like a dr that takes their time and listens to their patients, this provider seems to rush through patients.

Very concerned & very friendly love my doctors.

I am extremely hard of hearing and do struggle hearing Dr. A. It's not only her accent, but she does not talk loudly enough. This is frustrating in that I have been her patient a long time and feel she should be well aware of my hearing issue.
May 13, 2016
I love Dr Abeysinghe. She is so sincere and caring. I fell like she really listens to me and is genuinely there to help me. I highly recommend her to my friends searching for a new doctor.

Originally had different doctor was reassigned - this one is all business - there isn't much discussion about anything - think she is like this and it's reflected in the demeanor of her assistance.

Disappointed that PAP was referred to OB/GYN Dept. Not thrilled that a stool specimen is required every other year. I've had a colonoscopy and am due for a second one in 2 years. Never had any issues - (Income generated?!)
Apr 25, 2016
At first I thought I chose a male MD by name when they changed to DO system my mistake. Usually I had no problem with assigned MD. I felt threatened a little. She was correct lowering 2 medicines. But not stopping 1.

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.

Can't understand many words.

Dr Abys-- accent caused unavoidable problems at times, but easily resolved. No issues with it at all.
March 11, 2016
This appointment seemed to focus more what routine tests need scheduled, than the problems I was experiencing.
March 3, 2016
I am very happy with this care provider
