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.

I have been going to DR. Carl for many years and would not trust my eyes to any one else. He is down to earth and makes me feel comfortable during my visits. I had cataract surgery with him and my vision is great. His nurse Debra is caring and was helpful to me throughout the years i have been going there. It's nice that they both work together so well.

My visit was with Dr. David Carl for eye care. I have seen Dr. Carl since 1982. Dr. Carl is the type of Doctor I wish allof my Doctors weare. The nurses and everyone go above and beyond for me when they do not have to . I would like, somehow, to express my deepest thanks to all of them.
