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.

Good.

I like Dr. Braum. He can be somewhat "robotic" or socially awkward?
Nov 14, 2016
He was very pleasant and smiled and joked a little. This helped allay my nervousness.

Very good experience.

He had the nerve to call the ER and tell the triage nurse's I was not taking my medication for the C-Diff; which then the hospital triage nurses were ignorant to me as he was and told me Braum told them on the phone!You folks are forgetting I have friends, family, neighbors work the ER.#10. Never!

In regards to #10, could not in all honesty give my care provider a "very good" recommendation because of past visits.

I have repeatedly commented in these surveys my displeasure with Dr Braum, to no avail, nothing changes. He is off-putting, "fake", too scripted. Yes, I'm sure he is following exactly what Geisinger wants him to do (follow the script provided by computer prompts). All this does is meet "your" requirements, not the mine - the patient and the consumer!!! He does not listen to my concerns, treats me as an idiot (has NO idea whom I am as a person - I'm a retired RN/CRNP!!!), is a cold fish, and has body odor. I have tried to change care providers (see comments to first question on this survey). I have had conversations with other people I know who have also encountered Dr Braum, all with the same impression of him as me. None of us want this physician near us and our health care needs.

Dr. didn't care to hear my opinion.

Dr. Braum is very friendly.

Dr. Braum is always courteous and professional. Does not make you feel rushed and will take to time to address any concerns or questions you may have.

caregiver didnt really seem to want to deal with my allergic reaction. no one told me what to do for itchiness from rash. I was just told to take anither round of prednisone, hich I was already taking.
Apr 27, 2016
Dr did not give total new drug info
Apr 13, 2016
Appointment was for a physical exam. I have heart palpitations and no EKG was performed. There also were no testicular or prostate exams performed being over 55 years of age. I always have to ask for routine blood/lab work because Dr. Braum says that it is not needed, not every three years. I request it anyways once a year.
Apr 12, 2016
Dr Braum always takes plenty of time and always listens
