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.

Nurse provided instructions on follow-up. This was not discussed by either PA or MD. It is too early to evaluate my recommendation as the procedure has not happened.

Dr. Hegstrom epitomizes the consummate professional. His expertise and experience are blended with a "patient first" philosophy. Exceptional physician!

On this occasion the doctor entered the room SECONDS after the nurse, then referenced me having seen a different surgeon - not him!! It was HIM I saw, and he clearly had not read my notes. This was very disconcerting.

Dr. Hegstrom was excellent in all respects. (It would have been good if he'd introduced himself, though!).

I feel as if my chart was not reviewed before my appt. My concerns/questions were not answered, I feel as if the reason I was seeing was not taken seriously, which led to further follow up in Danville and now a second surgery is needed.
