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.

I am VERY happy with Dr. Pendaharkar

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.

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.

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
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
Feb 22
Great experience!

You really should have a field for NA or something that reflects that I did not experience this. Previous question as an example... phoning into the clinic. I didn't need to phone in at all.

Jan 11
I felt a little hurried; it took longer driving to the appointment than the actual appointment. I wasn't given any options for treatment, he just told me he was prescribing two things. I would say the doctor was just fine and I didn't dislike, but I wouldn't go out of my way to get my friends or family to go to him.
Jan 6
He is an outstanding doctor. I recommend him to my friends.

We LOVE Dr. Penharkar! He is kind, perceptive, practical, clearly cares about the short- and long-term outcome for the patient, and provides excellent care. He is sensitive to both the concerns of the parent and the child and, he makes the child part of the conversation. He also is sensitive to scheduling concerns (e.g. At one point both our children were receiving care with him, and he recognized that their appointments were no synched up. He personally approached the folks in scheduling to ask them to synch their appointments if possible so that we didn't have to schedule so many visits.) He has a warm personality and a great sense of humor, too. All of your practitioners in our experiences (nursing staff, Michelle Thal-P.A., and Dr. Mentycka) at this location are very good and very practical in their approaches.

I was very impressed with the doctor. He was excellent: professional yet very friendly. I would rate him as highly as my family physician that I have been seeing for many years. Geisinger has made a very good selection hiring this doctor.
Dec 14, 2015
He is awesome.
Dec 10, 2015
The full body dermatological exam was more brief and superficial than any I have had in the past.
Dec 9, 2015

Nurse and doctor were attentive and explained me my problem which I was needed
Oct 29, 2015
I was beyond thrilled with NINAD C PENDHARKAR, MD. I deeply disliked my previous dermatologist, and I was hesitant about this visit. He is very kind and has a very easy manner.
Oct 22, 2015
This was one of the best appointments I've ever had in terms of feeling like I was being listened to and no issue was deemed unimportant. I would highly recommend Dr. Pendharker to anyone.
Oct 6, 2015
Good. Treats me like an old friend.
Oct 1, 2015
Dr. Pendharkar is consistently wonderful to work with. He is always friendly and upbeat, and he is very caring. He is the first dermatologist I have ever dealt with who takes my concerns about my skin seriously.

Aug 4, 2015
slow process to treat my skin condition. I knew that going in but results are very good, just need more time and I expect to be back to normal.
Jul 29, 2015
Even though I thought the lab results could take as long as 7 to 10 days, Dr. Pendharkar called me with the results in less than 24 hours.
Jul 22, 2015
I have a great respect for Dr. Pendharker and have recommended him on several occasions. He has an excellent bedside Manor and is very patient when asked questions.
Jul 21, 2015
I have a skin condition that I asked him about but he wasn't confident in knowing what it was or how to treat it. He didn't offer the help of a second opinion or from another doctor in the office. I don't think he made the effort to try to figure out what the problem is.
Jul 15, 2015
The doctor took a lot of time to listen to my concerns & he explained everything without rushing.
June 23, 2015
