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.G. has been my son's pediatrician since infancy. He knows and shows interest in him at every visit we have ever had with him (sick or well). I'm sad that he can't be my son's primary care physician forever, but I know the kiddos of Schuylkill County need and deserve his excellent care!

Dr. Gianfagna is an amazing physician. He knows my son and is aware of his particular issues. He remembers him from one appointment to another. He also makes sure he talks to my son in language he understands instead of just talking to me, the parent.

Dec 8, 2015
no medications rx'd.Dr G took extra care to spend time with my son making him feel at ease. he also addressed the recent loss of a beloved family pet when my soon brought it up to him. even though we were here for a sick visit, he was gracious enough to take time to discuss this matter with my son and I am truly grateful for this. it made a wonderful impression on both my son and myself, that this provider is concerned about the overall well being of the patient and not just about how many patients can be seen in the hour.

Dr. G took care of our first 3 children, so when we found out that we were having a 4th, we wouldn't have trusted anyone else to care for her like he did our others!

Dr. G is always wonderful. It takes a little longer to get in to see him, but it's worth it!

Dr. G and Dr. Kane are amazing and I trust in them, unfortunately I do not trust in the system that supports the doctors. The system pushes the doctors too fast and does not allow the doctors "time" The system does not support the call volume or allow for adequate "time" for the doctors to respond to calls. Gesinger needs to take a hard look at the system from the customers view! Before you lose great doctors and nurses!
Sep 10, 2015
There aren't enough great words to describe Dr. Gianfagna!!! We love him!! And our daughter, who is 15, feels VERY comfortable with him!!

Dr G is one of the best Dr.'s you have in the Geisinger System!!!!!
