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.

Dr. G does a great job speaking with the kids as well as the parent. He makes sure everyone is on the same page and clear on the POC.

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.

Always love dr g , friendly , thorough, and wonderful with kids
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 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!

Love Dr. G!! I (and my children) are really going to miss him. I am very sad that they will not be under his care anymore as of July 1 because my company is switching to UnitedHealth Care and Geisinger does not participate with them. And I have referred him to friends.
