Rated Dr. Piatt for recommendation as only to others as only "Fair" because he is getting older. I've been seeing Dr. Piatt for maybe more that 20 years and he has a ood understanding of my problems and the treatments that work (and dont' work) for me. I think someone older should establish a relationship that will last for the future

Exam did not seem to be thorough and no feedback from physician regarding exam and bloodwork. I called the office, but a call from the doctor was never returned. This was one of the worst exams I have ever received and I will ask for a new physician for my next exam.

Dr Piatt has always been very informative to me and very detailed. Enjoy talking to him because he does make you feel at ease. Also gives you the details in a way you do understand.

Dr. Piatt listened and he was very good at detecting what was causing the swelling and soreness of my left jaw - I have been going to Piatt for many years for different things - he is very good -

Dr. Piatt did not always inspire confidence in his evaluations to me.
Jul 28, 2016
I am a 68-year-old runner and mentioned feeling fatigued earlier than I should and some upper-thorax tightness. Dr. Piatt thoroughly addressed my concerns.

Never had a bad experience

Dr. Piatt is an excellent dr.
Jul 6, 2016
Came in with 4 health matters to address. 1 of 4 took an hour and a half at the site. Dr. never addressed (a) chest pains (b) skin cancer concern and (c) chronic insomnia. Topics were all conveyed in writing to nurse for documentation purposes. Broken toe was missed on XRay by Dr. but picked up by Radiologist later that evening.

Dr. Piatt is always willing to listen and consider my concerns. He treats me with respect, but is not afraid to let me know if I am off base in my thinking. In these cases, he presents the counterargument without talking down to me. I greatly appreciate his candor and genuine concern for my well-being.
June 24, 2016
plus he was sick so I don't think he should have been seeing patience's since I got sick after being there. I got a fever and upset stomach and a cold sore and I know it had to come from being there because I haven't been out of the house since May 17th. So I really don't think I should be charged but I don't think that will happen. I didn't make the appointment in the first place you called me in and then I get sick doesn't seem fair to me.
June 23, 2016
Dr. Piatt really asks questions and thinks about possible solutions to my problems.
June 20, 2016
I have never met with Dr.Piatt before and I was pleasantly surprised by his professionalism and care. I have already recommended him to other family members that use Geisinger Health Group.
June 17, 2016
Dr Piatt is easy to work with
June 2, 2016
i had to say 'fair' on recommending dr piatt only because i don't feel capable of assessing someones medical needs. i wouldn't recommend any specific doc. but i do recommend geisinger in the strongest term. dr piatt has been my PCP for a few decades and i have complete faith in him.
June 1, 2016
Dr. Piatt always answers my questions thoroughly and makes the whole doctor's office experience more relaxed and tolerable for someone like me who has a lifelong aversion to doctors in general.
May 25, 2016
I like this doctor
