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 40 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. Lacroix is probably, in my opinion, the best neurosurgeon in the land. I have known a number of them. From start to finish I could not have been more satisfied.

Dr. Lacroix is a first class physician. His expertise, knowledge and doctor-to-patient meeting is at the top of the seating chart. He is truly an asset to the Geisinger network.

I have several appointments with Dr. Lacroix since 2009 - He has always been friendly, courteous as well as showing his professional skills. If someone in my family, or an acquaintance, needed help in his field, I would strongly recommend him.
