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.

Dr. Focht was amazing. I finally felt like I was getting answers about my son's condition. He was easy to talk to and very understanding about my concerns and anxiety.

Dr. Focht makes myself and my husband feel extremely comfortable after leaving a visit with him. our daughter was diagnosed with some GI issues at a young age. she is our first child so we typically have more questions than the average patient. Dr. Focht spends as much time as he needs to with us and makes sure we don't leave with any unanswered questions.

Dr. Focht is great. Spends a great deal of time talking to my daughter as a patient... which I think allows her to feel more engaged.
