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.

I do not like when the doctor has a student, when I have a problem I would like to see my doctor.

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.

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.

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.
