Dr. Pendharker is outstanding. I am filling out this survey mostly to let you know how well he is performing in regards to my care.

Very professional and very quick. He knew i was having anxiety issues during the procedure and by the time it was getting to be too much, he was already done. (very much appreciated)

Excellent physician!

Doctor helped me understand that I do not need to be overly concerned about skin cancer given my family history and clean check up. Fewer visits will suffice.
Nov 8, 2016
I am still waiting for the follow up my needs /Cancer or not: Is there any other medicine for my personal problem.
Nov 1, 2016
I've had nothing but positive experiences.
Oct 26, 2016
He did not examine my stomach or back, let alone any private areas. I've had moles removed in these areas before, and even mentioned that. He was in the room for a very short time. I am very fair and take meds that could lead to skin cancer. I work outside most of the time and need to be sure my skin is OK. I'm going to see a dermatologist in FL who I know gives a thorough exam.

Dr. Pandarkhar took great care and concern. He took a biopsy of a skin lesion on my forehead which turned out to be basal cell.

I have been dealing with a bad thumb nail for nearly 5 years. I have taken a topical treatment. I have had the nail removed. I have taken Lamisil for three months. My nail is better but it is not attached at the end.

Dr. Pendharker is wonderful. He is professional and kind. My daughter feels very comfortable going to him as her dermatologist. He acts interested and thorough. He has treated my daughter's acne very successfully and it has done a lot to make her feel confident in her appearance and good about herself.

Our appointment seemed rushed and I don't know that we talked about everything I wanted to
June 9, 2016
The doctor accurately determined what my problem was. I had visited 2 primary care physicians and a dentist. None of the previous care providers were able to help me. Thank you Dr. PenHarder.

The doctor is very friendly and has a personality that puts me at ease. I didn't have much I needed to talk about because it was a follow up appointment, but for all the waiting I did in the waiting room and in the exam room, plus the drive up, it seemed like a longer visit was in order. My time spent with the doctor was probably around 7 minutes. That would've been fine if I hadn't spent 20 minutes waiting in two places. I would still probably recommend the doctor to others, and have recommended Geisinger itself to many people, including my mother who made an appointment while we were there.
May 3, 2016
I am VERY happy with Dr. Pendaharkar
Apr 18, 2016
He saw me right away when I told him WE were having a repeat problem with scabies and I wondered if it still was scabies or my usual skin condition. I did not want to keep reinfecting my grandchildren.
Apr 14, 2016
Really like Dr. Pendharker! he is always very pleasant and addresses my concerns!
Apr 14, 2016
Very warm but professional demeanor. Really like this guy but don't think I have ever had a Geisinger Dr that didn't meet or exceed my expectations.
March 31, 2016
I am very pleased with this care provider and have already told others about him and recommended him.
March 1, 2016
The dermatology office and staff are wonderful!!!
Feb 29, 2016
Have already recommended him to several others.
Feb 25, 2016
The doctor ordered cream for my problem which he could of given me the first time and maybe I wouldn't of had to go back the second time.
Feb 25, 2016
Dr Pendharker is ok and I am comfortable with him for general dermatological issues. His examinations are a little quick and I am not certain that he wouldn't overlook conditions that I don't point out to him
