  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.

Love Dr. Demaske is the best!
Dec 18, 2015
My history was taken by a "pre-med" student without the doctor in the room. I did not mind this as a one-time experience, but I would not want it to be the norm.
Dec 16, 2015
This was my second experience with Dr. Damaske. He is very friendly and I am very comfortable talking with him. This is one of the reasons I have asked him to be my primary care provider.
Dec 16, 2015
Dr. Damaske is the most genuine caring and professional doctor I have ever had. I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to experience his care as a patient of his. He is in tune with all my health concerns / progress/treatment. I trust him with my life and he has done wonders for me.

I wish I had been warned of some possible side effects of a new drug, but maybe that's more for a pharmacist to do.
Nov 5, 2015
Dr. Demaske is a excellent physician. He is very kind and caring as well as swift to get to the problem and act on it.

Liked Dr.Damaske a lot
Sep 11, 2015
Not my PCP but was available to see - was absolutely great - wound up seeing him 2x & was very impressed. Very professional & caring. Easy to talk with. I would recommend him & have. I would see him again if needed.
Sep 2, 2015
In my fifty nine years I have never experienced the kind of care that Dr. Damaske has exhibited towards me, my health, and my family. I will choose him as my doctor until the day I die.
Aug 28, 2015
Best MD I ever had excellent care giver!! Thank you *Doc Damaske!
Aug 19, 2015
Always wonderful!
Aug 19, 2015
I've had several visits with *Dr. Damaske. He pays attention to my concerns with respect. I'm very impressed with him. I'm seriously considering making him my PCP.
Jul 31, 2015
Dr. Damaske is the main reason I stay with Geisinger. simply because of practices which are designed not for my good health care but money generated for Geisinger. I feel some policies which are in place, especially in the OB/GYN are unnecessary and leave me and my family members very upset and frustrated. If Dr. Damaske leaves Geisinger I will also find a Primary Care outside of Geisinger.
Jul 31, 2015
I appreciate Dr. Demanske being pro-active in ordering blood tests to assess potential reactions to the meds I was on. He was knowledgeable a medication test I asked him about as well.
Jul 18, 2015
The appointment went well, for the most part. I wish it was less rushed and that a little more time was taken to have questions answered. I also would have liked to have my tests done for cholesterol, triglycerides, etc., but apparently no one remembered to start the process after it was brought up in the examining room.
Jul 16, 2015
Dr. Damaske was excellent. Just the right amount of friendliness and professionalism. That's something that seems to be lost in healthcare these days. Kudos!!
Jul 14, 2015
I have already recommended Dr. Damaske to a colleague.
Jul 14, 2015
Very good.
Jul 10, 2015
The doctor was friendly, easy to talk to & used terminology that was understandable.
Jul 2, 2015
Dr. Damaske is the best!! I know patients that have him as a doctor and they all love him! He is very nice, caring and he is really good in what he does! He answers all my questions, concerns and explain to me everything I need to know. I would definitely recommend him to anyone!
June 22, 2015
Very good experience, *Dr. Damaske, I left went to the extreme trying to help me with my sinus problem. A great doctor. I would be happy to see him again for my healthcare.
May 28, 2015
Throughout my many years of doctoring, Dr. Damaske is the BEST doctor I have had as my PCP. I pray he never leaves! #1. Excellent.

I love Dr. Paul Damaske. Wonderful General Practicioner
May 3, 2015
This was my first experience with this physician. He was able to properly diagnose & recommend treatment, did NOT talk down to me, was very professional & had a very pleasant communication style.
May 3, 2015
I appreciate that Dr. Damaske diagnosed that I had come down with a breast infection and also his honesty in saying he didn't know why (it was far removed from a breast biopsy I had had 3 weeks earlier) and I am not a nursing mother. I appreciate his reassurance that the antibiotics he prescribed would clear up the infection (they did) and his estimate of how soon I would begin to notice relief (he was right on the mark there.) I also appreciate his compassion in that I worried this infection would interfere with a long awaited annual vacation and he passed me a kleenex box when I cried and encouraged me to continue with my family plans and that I would feel better after 2 days or so (which I did.) I also appreciate that he counseled me to take a probiotic to counter possible negative side effects of the antibiotic (which it did). I felt I received excellent and compassion care from him.

Dr Damaske makes out a list as we talk about things and then at the end of our appointment we go over it . So I can remember it .That very helpful.
Apr 24, 2015
Dr. Paul Damaske is down to earth, easy to talk to, and cares about helping you for you, and not just because its his job. Highly recommended and worth the wait!
Apr 14, 2015
I came to Dr. Damaske through my daughter and already have a patient who switched to Damaske.
Apr 13, 2015
He was very thorough in suggesting several options I could use to get relief from the bronchitis. I understood I could accept or reject these options. it was nice I was given choices.
Apr 1, 2015
This was an annual check-up visit. No discussion of medications or follow-up was needed.
March 21, 2015

Always a good experience.
