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.

PA was not friendly and requested information I did not know offhand and wasn't prepared to give. Had I known the info was needed for the appt I would've obtained it. when I reminded her the info was in her system her response was it would take too long to dig kid is 9 with a small medical record and even I know she could've accessed the diagnostic info she was in need of very quickly...I don't think she is following your "caring" approach very well to be honest ...the MD was friendly though.

when the doctor arrived he knew i had been waiting and that i was annoyed. he never apologized for the delay nor acknowledged that i had been waiting. he did however ask where i worked, as if he would determine if my time was valuable or not.

Very good working relationship.

The Doctor did not address concerns. I fept rushed. A very brief interaction with the doctor and the exam was not thorough at all. I can not recommend this doctor to anyone with serious concerns about their current well being. I wasted a day off of worm and have a $40 co pay of which i am not at all pleased about considering how unhelpful this interaction was. Never again will I come here.

Dr. Plotnik is always willing to listen and answers all questions in a manner I can understand. He is also very caring about my condition. I have all the confidence in the "world" of Dr.'s abilities.

I have no faith or trust in this provider. I came to him for a specific reason of snoring and that reason was not addressed or taken care of.

Very courteous, friendly & sensitive doctor, and staff. Took the necessary time to try to find the problem.
