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.

He just told me he was giving me meds and did not tell me the names or side effects.

Dr. Roy's students (Clint I believe) did a very thorough exam and seemed very caring. Dr. Roy then came in and did another very thorough exam. I have been to several specialists & Dr. Roy has been the only one who took a lot of time with me & seemed to genuinely care.

Dr. Roy is great.

Doctor was dismissive of all of my symptoms. He basically told me I was making everything up and said "you have to get over this" and gave me a placebo dose of meds for my symptoms. He refused to do any testing as well because he said any tests would yield no results (because he knew what the results would be because I was making it all up). I am beyond infuriated with this result.

He spent more time talking to my daughter after he found out she was going to be an RN.

I had a very complicated situation to explain to *Dr. Roy about my current medications that were prescribed in CA and were not working well. He listened.

this doctor kept repeating himself over and over again and repeatedly kept rubbing his eye and this was very disturbing

First appt., first time I met dr. my confidence will get better as time passes & additional appt's and type of care. English not his first language little difficult to understand.

His confidence is low.

Only concern is Dr. Ray is difficult to understand due to his accent- frequently had to have him repeat so I could " what he said.

the verty next day i received a letter that dr.roy was leaving the area . and he said nothing to me at the time of my office visit .I was very sad to hear that about him and I need a dr. at the shamokin geisinger hospital . because I can not get to gmc. danville .

Dr Roy looked over my records, said he didn't have any idea what was wrong with me & told me "You have to learn to live with it". Make an appt. in 6 months. I couldn't make an appt. because the schedule isn't made out yet & they'll contact me. I received a letter in the mail the next day stating that Dr Roy would no longer be a provider at Shamokin Hospital. Why bother making an appt? Why didn't he say something at the appt. My experience with Dr Roy and my previous neurologist Dr Perez was lacking severely. I feel if you have a condition they're familiar with then they'll treat you, if not, they don't know what is wrong with you they could try to find out or refer you to someone who could try to help you, not tell you to learn to live with it. I feel that is very uncaring with no compassion for what the patient is dealing with. No, I definitely will not recommend Geisinger neurology to anyone.

I was disappointed the Dr did not tell me he was leaving & I got that information the next day in a letter.

dr would not listen to patient concerns; had basically made up his mind on his diagnosis and would not discuss
March 26, 2015
Dr. Roy showed caring & concern for my health issues. He listened patiently as I described symptoms, conducted a thorough exam & answered all my questions satisfactorily.

At times, difficult to understand, but very willing to repeat himself.
