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.

We drive 3 hours just so my daughter can remain in Dr.Lurito's care. We absolutely love her! She is so kind and caring. Always acts happy to see us and help us. She has made our journey with our 3 year old and her heart condition a much easier thing to deal with. I could go somewhere local but I wouldn't get near the care we get driving 3 hours one way to see Dr. Lurito. She is like family to us now. She has been in our lives for 3 years now and I can't begin to express how grateful we are for her. She is absolutely hands down the best pediatric cardiologist and she is a true blessing to us and asset to Geisinger.
