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.

The doctor spent plenty of time with me which was nice, also why he was probably running late as he may tend to spend that time with all patients which is a very good thing. Did not try to force his opinions or any procedures on me, and when I said no thanks for a certain exam he kindly double checked to make sure while explaining his reasoning then moved on when I still declined.

We attempted to ask if there was a generic for one med that was300 per month. I had just been discharged from nursing home and needed a wheelchair van. Van didnt show up so i missed appointment. They knew it wasnt my fault because i had caregiver waiting at office. They refused to talk about that med until rescheduled appt two weeks later. I just needed a question answered.

I am very pleased with Dr. Chollack, however, I am very disappointed in the service this clinic provides. I considered changing health care providers but do not want to leave my PCP.
