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. Cochran helped us with the problem at hand and also discovered that my son also had acid reflux, as well. He took a lot of time to discuss our health history and I was very happy with the care he gave to my son.

This is the second time our child has been seen by Dr Cochran, and both times, his thoroughness in asking questions, examining her, and helping devise treatment was outstanding.

Dr. Cochran is by far the best doctor that I have taken my daughter to. He was very kid friendly and made my daughter feel very comfortable.

Dr. Cochran is an excellent physician. I hope that Geisinger will continue to give him the help he needs so that he doesn't leave as has many of your providers (5 of 8 pulmonologists @ GWV).

Dr. Cochran is an outstanding provider - he is the picture of pediatric caring.

The reason I gave a Fair for number 5 is because there was no discussion about medication and there wasn't an option to pick N/A.
