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 glad we found someone who is willing to try to help our son

didn't care about my concerns for patient. Was too busy telling patient about his medical problem and what he went through comparing it to the patients that his was worse.

I felt as though my concerns were written off because my child is a "healthy weight"

Had to call for results of stool sample. Then had to call about scheduling scope.

Excellent & kind physician!

Dr. Maksimak was very competent and personable. He connected with my son on a personal level, and answered all our questions. My son's case is a bit unusual and he gave us confidence that he will help us solve the puzzle. We were impressed that Dr. Maksimak personally sent him an e-mail to provide test results and explain the next course of action.

Dr was very friendly and kind but dismissed my daughters issue and used a blanket diagnosis of colic. he was also unfamiliar with popular brands of formula other than the 3 huge name brands. we use a fairly well known organic brand and he had never heard of it. if you're a pediatric gastroenterologist I feel you should keep up to date with some of brands other than Gerber/similac and enfamil.

He seemed genuine and showed concern, but I felt like he wasn't hearing me about the issues she was having and thought her issue was a one time issue.
May 5, 2016
Dr. Maksimak has taken the time to develop a relationship with my daughter which means a lot to her & myself. He treats the person not just the illness.
May 2, 2016
Dr. Maksimak is amazing. He has gotten to know my son personally and they discuss baseball and share sports stories at each visit. Dr. Maksimak is a true asset to Peds GI.
