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.
  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 am currently getting a second opinion. She was very rude, didn't know how to use equipment kept asking assistant when she ask us if we had any question she talked to me like I was too young and uneducated she asked me if I needed a picture. At this visit, I and Fiance fully understood EVERYTHING.

Dr. Golten was wonderful. She was very kind and patient in answering our questions. We also greatly appreciated having results while we were there instead of waiting several days to learn our baby was OK. This is a fantastic protocol, especially in pediatric medicine.

The doctor was so wonderful. She saw me in the hallway with my daughter and remembered us from MFM and from when our daughter was born. She was just as happy as we were that our baby's original diagnosis was proved incorrect. The doctor was extremely personable.
