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.
  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.

First visit with this doctor and I felt like she did a good exam based on my experiences with previous exams. Glad to have been referred to her by my primary doctor.

Dr. Sahin explains everything very well & takes her time to answer all questions you have. I recommend her to everyone!!

Dr. Sahin knows I bring questions, she answers them thoroughly, and even then follows up with, "any more questions?".

Doctor was excellent and gave me lots of time and opportunity to ask questions.

I have already recommended Dr. Sahin to my sister! I was a little wary at first because my original physician left the practice and I was more or less "assigned" to Dr. Sahin and figured I would just go for my annual exam and then find someone--but she proved my doubts wrong. She is one of the most caring physicians I have ever seen. Dr. Sahin really takes time with you, listens, and gives you options while explaining benefits and risks. I am very confident in her abilities and will not hesitate to recommend her to others.

Dr. Sahin Kandemir is a wonderful practitioner. She has been very attentive, thorough, and professional before and during my surgical process. She explained everything thoroughly and her follow up care has been excellent. She is also very knowledgeable and accessible. I feel very confident in her care.

I found *Dr. Sahin to be very cold, rough and unsympathetic - My experience with her at my appt was horific. I will never make another appt to see her!

I was very satisfied with my new doctor. However, this was only my first visit with her; that is why I chose 4 instead of 5 for #10.

Dr. Sahin is wonderful - she recognized the seriousness of my issue after other dr. did not and symptoms continued. She made arrangements for specialist & I was seen and had surgery within 2 weeks.

She said I was measuring small while 9 months pregnant and I had an 8 lb baby 5 days later. Every time I saw her she said I was measuring small.

The doctor didn't make me feel as comfortable as the nurse. Communication was not as clear as I would have liked. I wasn't sure if she was fully understanding what I was telling her, and I had some trouble understanding her at times as well. During the exam, she was not very gentle, and I bled a lot. She said it looked like I had an infection, but the culture was negative so I am even more sure now that she was a bit too rough. She is the only female doctor available, and I was uncomfortable enough that I would rather go to one of the male doctors in the future.

Dr failed to provide information about symptoms/complications after procedure, which I had. I also rec'd a call with lab results and she never indicated that specimen was being sent for testing (glad that it was, but she never mentioned).
Apr 7, 2015
My doctor asked me the same questions about 4 times and I gave the same answers. I was a bit irritated by that.
Apr 7, 2015
Dr. Sahin provides VERY thorough explanations for any topics we discuss {illegible or inappropriate content} and she always asks one more time if I have any more questions, even when it seems we are wrapping things up! She also encourages me to contact her via mygeisinger.org should I think of more questions.

Knowledgeable in certain areas but pushed certain things on me like breast feeding even after I informed her I did not want to do this - even questioned me further in L&D after baby arrived. - Also pushed induction on me before 41 weeks - another Dr. in practice wasn't sure why.

Both times there not very good at being on time.
