Doctor was extremely courteous and friendly, yet very professional in patient interaction. She explained all procedures and recommendations thoroughly to my satisfaction and discussed potential outcomes. I would consider this doctor for future appointments when my regular physician was not available.

Dec 1, 2016
After seeing Dr. O'Brien and Dr. Jacobs....I was not impressed with Dr. Newhouser. Some of my questions and concerns she said she would have to send me to specialist because she couldn't deal with them. Why see her then?? My other doctors didn't send me away.....No thanks
Nov 10, 2016
Dr. Laura Newhouser explained all the above. Communications between patient and provider excellent.
Oct 25, 2016
Dr. Newhouser is my new care provider and I understand she doesn't know me well. She needs to consider what has worked in the past as far as treatments of existing problems or conditions I have. I am more of a natural approach to treatment and don't even like using medication, so when I suggest one that has worked in the past, regardless if it is an antibiotic, Dr. Newhouser needs to consider that an option instead of immediately educating me on how another medication is more appropriate........
Oct 21, 2016
She was great, as always.
Oct 20, 2016
I give this doctor an A+.
Oct 20, 2016
General check up. No specific problems. No medications questions.
Oct 13, 2016
I had a concern about my mental health which is a hard subject to even bring up, and I felt embarrassed and like my provider didn't take my concern seriously or ask many questions about the issues I'm having. discouraging to have this response and makes me afraid to bring up future mental health questions

Oct 6, 2016
I have seen Dr. Newhouser in the past and she was wonderful. She didn't seem to concerned with anything I questioned her on. She didn't seem like she wanted to be bothered with just a "physical". Seemed very tired when talking to me.

Dr. Newhouser is the greatest.
May 3, 2016
I am a new patient to Dr Newhouser. She took a good amount of time with me to get to know me and my health needs. She was very kind, very informative, and kept herself open to me asking questions or sharing concerns. #5 gets a "good," because I am familiar with all my meds and didn't need her to give me further info.
Apr 28, 2016
You have an excellent practice if you can get the phone system fixed.

Apr 9, 2016
Dr. Newhouser saw me because I couldn't get in with my PCP, Dr. Damaske. She was so great that I might switch to her as my PCP because it's hard to get in to see Dr. Damaske.
Apr 8, 2016

March 22, 2016
I really like Dr. Newhouser and I feel that she is always competent and thorough. I have recommended her to several people in the last year.
March 17, 2016
Dr. Newhouser is an exceptional physician. She has an excellent bedside manner. Is easily able to talk to my 12 year old daughter and as a parent she communicates very well and answers all of my questions. She is also very quick at responding to myGeisinger messages. I highly recommend her to anyone and she is definitely an asset to Grays Woods!

I am very happy with her and she gives me more information than the other doctor I had.
