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 believe part of problem is there are very few endocrinologists in this town, so Dr. is either over worked &/or not too concerned with losing her job.

The dr is rude, uncaring and completely uninterested in her patients. I left the appt upset and confused. During the appt she listened to my heart, very tightly grabbed my throat and that's it. I will never see her again and should have simply walked out during the appt.

very fast talker. very adament about 1 thing with no real explanation as to the whys.

Missed having the reflex tests on arms & legs done - Maybe I didn't need them!

I like Dr. Kaviani, however I feel she may have too many patients and that is evident in the delays for appointments, wait times, and knowledge of patient issues even when the are long standing (almost 3 years) patients of hers. Due to that I lack confidence in this provider. I feel Dr. Kaviani is very knowledgeable, but is over worked.
March 23
After waiting 30 minutes past my appointment time in the waiting room, I then had to wait another 20-25 minutes in the exam room before Dr. Kaviani came in. She then spent no more than 5-10 minutes with me. This visit could have been done via a phone call or message on MyGeisinger. All she did was tell me the results of my most recent bloodwork, which I could already see online. I had even asked her the month before my appointment if I still needed to come in and she told me to keep my appointment. She also never mentioned anything to me about follow up appointments, however when I was checking out I was told she wanted a follow up in 6 months. I will not be keeping that appointment as I'm sure it will be just as useless as this one was.

She has helped me address type II diabetes & hypercholesterolemia with great success. All labs normal now.

I really appreciated how carefully Dr. Kaviani listened to me. She made me feel as if what I had to say about my medical history was important information that she respected. When she gave me her recommendations -- a medication change -- she explained why in a way that made me feel she "got" me. I'm sensitive to drugs and she took that into account in making her recommendation. I am so glad she is my new physician -- I just relocated here.

Dr. Kauiana was very thorough. She explained how to take my medication properly and answered all my questions.

My appt. was rather quick, but overall my experience with my care provider is very good.

No change in treatment; readings are exactly where they should be.

To be fair I had to be traveling out of the country and one of my tests was not successful so results were ot evaluated The inflammatory condition I am faced with may have a solution and I hope to return in 6 months to see if Dr Kaviani may be able to help get to the cause of why my body is in such a state before there is permanent disfigurement of my hands or other. It cannot be faulted to yourGeisinger physicians when their training is not integrative and one where the cause is not of primary concern. If you at Geisinger want to be fair and catch up to modern day medicine you will do all you can for wellness not for profit only.

Courteous, credible and business like!

I came to this appt to discuss thyroid issues and med options for best symptoms relief. I was educated for an hour on nutrition and about 10 mins on my thyroid and she got upset and ended the spot when I expressed the desire to try alternative meds

Dr. Kaviani was somewhat dismissive and a bit condescending. I'm not convinced she thoroughly knew enough info about my condition, or if there was a language barrier which prevented her from communicating exact words.
