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.

Dr Wetzel was great, he spent a lot of time with me and explaining many things, I was in his office for long time, he did have a student he was teaching so he had lots of talking to do with both of us learning.

I have already recommended him to others!

Very best doctor Geisinger has to offer. He treats me like A person not a patient. Looked at me while I was talking, not at the computer screen.

Dr. GEHRED D WETZEL, DO is an amazing Dr. that makes you want to come back. Caring for his patients is truly his main drive. i wish that he can teach class to other Dr. on how to put "caring" in their job every day, every time, for every person that walks through the doors. Thank you so so much Dr. Wetzel for "CARING"

Dr. Wetzel has been my gynecologist for the past 10 yrs. He really cares. This visit I had something unusual going on. He looked at a microscope, & then showed & explained to me what it was. In other words, he "goes the extra mile to help". I'm thankful for him.

Dr. Wetzel is a great doctor. I wouldn't see anyone else he is caring, respectful, and gives time to explain everything to me.

Very good experience. Excellent, compassionate, caring GYN doctor.

I do not like when the doctor has a student, when I have a problem I would like to see my doctor.
Sep 29, 2015
There was two student doctors for my visit. I felt that I was not given enough information about my condition post surgery. Gehred D Wetzel, DO had more questions for the students than me.

I would recommend *Dr. Wetzel to anybody. He is very personable and patient.

In concerns to Dr. Wetzle you do not have high enough numbers to describe the care he gave to me and the comfort he showed for my condition. He put my family at ease as well as kept them informed. Fill your clinics with doctors like him and you will never get lower then a 5

*Dr. Wetzel was awesome! Him & his student were very informative regarding Tdap vaccination & possible gestational diabetes.
Jul 28, 2015
The doctor had an intern/practicing doctor with him. I was not asked if she (the intern) was allowed to be present in the exam room & to examine me.

terrific first experience with Dr Wetzle!

I mentioned an issue I was having & the dr. thought I was another patient. Dr. prescribed a medication for it. He gave me information on the medication that was easy to understand. However, the dr. did not know my name.

This was my first visit with Dr. Wetzel (the dr. I had seen previously is now on medical leave), and he was very good. I was impressed that he reviewed my file beforehand, and even knew the time frame of my most recent mammogram, and such. He seemed genuinely concerned as to my health, and I appreciate that very much. I didn't feel rushed, and I felt understood and listened to. I'm definitely glad that my appointment was with this doctor.
