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.

He preformed both of my surgeries, did an awesome job putting my leg back together. I can say i am very happy with the care he provided during my two surgeries. He entered the room and i believe he remembered my leg. Said it looked very good/the scar. yes im happy to have my leg.

Dr. Lynott was great!
Oct 10, 2016
The reason and time I took to return the survey is because Dr. Lynott deserves at minimum a thoughtful thank you for the treatment received, and repeat business. He is my "valued" health provider.

Only spent a few moments with me, looked at my foot, checked my ct scan, told me to wear a metatarsal pad and boot if necessary. He said it will take awhile for my foot to heal since I have RSD/CRPS and doesn't recommend surgery because of the RSD. I understood all of that; however, there isn't any follow up with him. so if my foot still doesn't heal, to whom should I talk with?

I was their for my 3 month check up and I also wanted an injection. The doctor didn't mention it. I was told to get an MRI and go to physical therapy. Everything was told me so fast that I was not understanding it clearly.
