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. Keiter is an excellent doctor and kind person.
Dec 1, 2015
I just met April for the first time today. I thought she was wonderful. She took time to chat briefly and to set my mind at ease as much as she could. I really liked her and would feel comfortable going to her again.

Went the extra mile of calling us at home later in the day after looking at the x-ray.

The nurse had told me I would be tested for strep and mono and I didn't realize the mono test was a blood test. I was still very sick in a couple days and called about the results to which were nonexistent. The doctor didn't know exactly what was wrong and put me on a steroid which I do believe was the best choice, but I had asked about the results of my test which strep was negative. And I asked about the mono test and she said it would take a few days for results. I assumed both were taken from swab.

Provider never seems to know why I'm there even though it was a recommended follow-up by her. Would be nice to think she had reviewed my chart prior seeing me rather than asking me all e questions.
Nov 16, 2015
My wife called me when the doctor arrived. I looked at my phone when I checked out. It was less than 8 minutes from the time the doctor arrived till I was checking out.

Doctor Keiter has been excellent for me! She's always very informative, caring and pleasant! I'm 100% satisfied with her care!
Nov 5, 2015
My rx's were put in on a Thursday and when I went to pharmacy earlier in the week the next week they never showed. that pharmacy did move a while ago but not sure why they didn't go through. Adam who iI called that next day said he'd see why they didn't go through and that night they did when I stopped to check- although the Clobetasol that I DO need for Lichen Sclerosis was over $100 that I don't want to pay that high.

Dr Keiter is verykind, listens intently and is clear in explaining things
Oct 29, 2015
Dr. Keiter is very supportive, thorough & a good listener.
Oct 26, 2015
Dr Keiter was caring, informative, and very helpful. Definitely will recommend her to others.
Oct 17, 2015
Was not impressed. Nothing wrong or unprofessional but felt that my concerns were not important.
Oct 15, 2015
Dr Keiter spent more than 45 minutes with me answering my questions and explaining her diagnoses.
Oct 15, 2015
I loved Dr. Keiter. She did not make me feel rushed in the appointment, and she listed to me carefully. I had to wait for the appointment, but she was worth it!
Oct 12, 2015
Dr. Keiter is the best Family Doctor that I have ever had in State College. I compare her with the other ones that I have had in S.C. Like in Hershey SC or private, and Dr. Keiter is the very best!
Sep 21, 2015
Dr. Keiter is outstanding. She is very knowledgeable and "patient-friendly". She has very good diagnostic skills and takes the time to understand and discuss areas of concern.
Sep 18, 2015
All of my questions were answered thoroughly and the time spent with me never felt rushed. Dr. Keiter is excellent at her job. Highly recommended!
Sep 17, 2015
I already referred my sister and cousin to Dr. Keiter.
Sep 15, 2015
A little rough with the examination instrument but overall friendly and very personable. Spent quality and adequate time explaining symptoms and their origin. Prescribed two medications then later withdrew one...
Aug 13, 2015
As previously stated, Dr Keider was no help stating "then i don't know what else to tell you" when she thot symptoms could b from thyroid & suggested I increase thyroid meds.
Aug 10, 2015
I love Dr. Keiter. I trust her with my medical/physical health care. I had to change insurance plans and my current plan does not contract with Geisinger/Dr. Keiter as an "enhanced provider," however, I wouldn't consider changing PCPs despite the potential higher out of pocket costs for me.
Jul 31, 2015
Had several concerns, all addressed very well -
Jul 31, 2015
Like previous ?s, I was too sick & just wanted the dr to say what is wrong & move fwd w/whatever tests she was going to recommend.
Jul 31, 2015
Dr. Keiter spent a good deal of time with me trying to find an explanation for my issue. It is her apathetic demeanor that bothers me. I didn't feel she listened to my original complaint that the issue was the first time it has been this bad. She offered recommendations at first that weren't necessary given my history.
Jul 28, 2015
She did not spend a lot of time discussing my problem. She seemed like I was a bother to be there. I have talked with several others who have had the same issues with this provider.
Jul 17, 2015
I'm a new patient and loved Dr Keiter!
June 21, 2015
I felt very comfortable with Dr. Keiter. She was friendly, efficient and was careful about explaining the side effects of the medication that she was prescribing for me.
June 20, 2015
I am glad that I was able to make a follow-up appointment with my PCP. Come to find out the doctor I saw on Sunday at Grays Woods Weekend Clinic did not inform me that I had fluid behind my ears, even through I told her my ears hurt. My PCP on Thursday gave me an antibiotic for my ear infection.
June 9, 2015
Great to be treated like my health was important
May 28, 2015
Excellent doctor.
May 11, 2015
had no bad experience
Apr 27, 2015
I have the utmost confidence in Dr. Keiter. She always answers my questions and concerns. Her follow up is superb.
Apr 16, 2015
Dr. Keiter has always been a very caring doctor {illegible or inappropriate content} sometimes I get angry w/her cause she tells me the truth like you were doing so well w/your A1C testing and this time it shot up & when I explained I has stress w/my husband being ill for the 1st time in his 75 yrs of life she was very very good & said just be careful of your diet and try to keep stress down. She always says something that makes you want to move fwd and keep on going.

Sent to Scenery park because Bellefonte Geisinger was full that day. First time I meant Dr. Keiter. She was wonderful!
Apr 2, 2015
I was given no feedback. I was asked if I wanted bloodwork ordered, and it was, but there was no explanation of next steps. There did not seem to be an urgency or desire to find out what was really occurring with my body. I left not knowing what to do after getting the bloodwork besides visit MyGeisinger.com.
March 30, 2015
I am no longer a patient of Dr. Keiter's due to this visit. I did not feel well for four months, and instead of finding out why, she asked me what medications I wanted prescribed. That is the doctor's job to determine after appropriate testing.
March 10, 2015
I've seen this doctor one other time, which was the last time I was in which was last February. She honestly spends 5 minutes in the room with you then walks away. I was told this time I had bronchitis and she said she was giving me 2 prescriptions I went the pharmacy picked them up and as I walked out the door they called me saying this doctor just called in one more prescription. Last time I went in for a horrible ear ache for this doctor to say yes there is something wrong but I don't know what it is. I understand I have plenty of scared tissue on my ear drum from many ear infections. She is horrible.
Feb 24, 2015
There was no real advice except to keep an eye on things. The reason I came in was because there was a problem. I'm still having the issue and I am not sure if I should come back - or let it go.
Feb 16, 2015
Not impressed with treatment knowledge----went on computer for search of potential list of medications. Asked if I wanted to try various options. Had never experienced that approach from a physician .

#10. Question 10 is a little confusing to me as I dislike such recommendations as each person has their own opinion about medical care.
