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.

Once again I gave a poor for follow-up due to the fact it was left open that I would need follow up in a few months and was not instructed to call or have them set follow up when checking out.

If I could give Dr. LaCroix and Paul (PA?) a higher rating then very good, I would their last words to me before surgery was, "We'll take care of you.
