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.

the diabetic educator went above and beyond regarding Siobhan's care and current health issues. Dr. Godil had a more difficult time reaching Siobhan, and I found she tuned him out related to the way he directed questions to her.

______ understand anything his doctor asks or says due to broken English and I have a hard time too.

Wait time in the room was 25 minutes before MD came into room. It was just after lunch so he was not running behind from seeing other patients.

Dr. Godil is probably quite knowledgeable, but he needs to improve his listening skills. He has none. He typed on his computer the whole time we were there. When I tried to explain the reason for our visit, he interrupted me in the middle of my sentence to say something completely unrelated to what I was talking about, and showed almost no interest in anything I said. At one point, while he was typing, I actually said "my hovercraft is overflowing with eels," and he didn't even notice! He is very friendly when he first walks into the office, shakes hands, smiles, etc., but then he turns to his computer and slowly types out notes for several minutes at a time, completely ignoring everything around him. He still thinks we were visiting because of "short stature." We were not. My child had an eating disorder, and we were concerned about growth status. This was our second appointment with him, and he did the same thing the first time. I still don't think he's even aware of the eating disorder. He asked us to check back in 6 months to make sure that growth is still on track, but we do not plan to see him again if we can avoid it. I never give doctors bad reviews because I know how hard they work, but this man really needs to learn how to listen, and to pay more attention to his patients than to his computer screen. Perhaps he could get a voice recorder and have someone else type his notes? We were in the office with him for over 15 minutes, and were only able to actually speak to him for less than 2 minutes of that time. The rest of the time, he was typing. It would have been comical, had we not driven 90 minutes for the privilege of meeting with him. I feel terrible saying these things, but I also think he needs the feedback because I'm sure he could be a much better doctor if he would just turn away from his computer screen, listen, reflect, and share his knowledge.
