Not very personable. Wore a full face mask. Was very matter of fact. Not much discussion. When I tried to ask questions I was told that he would complete all assessments first and then tell me what his diagnosis was. When I tried to tell him what I was experiencing, he didn't really give any response, but just kept doing his tests. At the end of the appointment, he gave me his diagnosis. Showed me a graph and said this shows why you are having problems, but he didn't explain what they really meant. The only reason I consider staying with this doctor is because he is within the Geisinger group that has all the rest of my records, it means I don't have to travel, and according to my insurance company he is highly qualified. Time will tell. A little more personality and interest in the patient would be nice.

I didn't know I was going to have drops to dilate my eyes, which left me incapable of driving home to State College that same day. luckily I have a relative who lives in Lewistown, or else I would have needed to get a hotel room over night. I think patients need to know this before hand, in order to make driving arrangements.

I found out after my appt , while looking at test results on mygeisinger to prepare for an apt with my family Dr that a problem had been discovered during my eye exam. the eye Dr failed to mention that he saw anything and furthermore what he saw would require another visit. In the min. a future visit should have been scheduled for 3-6 months the max being 1 yr the Dr gave me an appointment for 2 yrs. My family Dr hade me make another appt. for November.

Since I am deaf, the doctor spoke mostly with my daughter, and then waited patiently while she spoke to me, which I greatly appreciate. And he followed up with a very nice note telling me it was a pleasure to see me at the office. He's a lovely man. :)

Dr. P. Nancolas is clear, concise and concerned, while seeking solutions to the condition my eyes present. I appreciated our interaction.
June 25, 2015
Wish he would have told me I could have up to two days of blurred vision after dilating my eyes before I asked if I could be having a problem because didn't clear in couple of hours.

Is it necessary to be seen every 6 mo all these years when there are seldom any changes???
