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 40 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.

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.

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.

Dr Kaviani is very nice and personable she answered all my questions and let me know where we go from here and why

Same on Geisinger for only having 1 endocrinologist in the State college area, what is going on? Did you know it takes 3-4 months to get a routine appt.?

Dr. was 45 minutes late for appointment. Was very brief in appt. I am not coming back to her.

My wife and daughter were very pleased with the doctor as I was also. She was very pleasant and easy to talk to.

Dr. Kaviani showed me great respect during the appointment when she took the time to understand why I was upset about my bloodwork. She could have been harsh in her judgement, but she took the time to talk about factors leading to my bloodwork result and how I could get back on track.

Dr. Kaviani was friendly and professional. Explained every thing very well.
