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.

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.

We thought a family doctor was able to handle medical concerns and we wouldn't have to see so many different doctors and miss more school for the same issue.
Jan 8
Dr. Newhouser is amazing! She took the time to see me, despite that fact that 1) I didn't have an appointment and 2) it was Friday at 4pm. She was completely thorough in my care, and she explained her rationale for everything she did/ordered. You can tell she cares about her patients and I'm very happy with her as my primary.

Excellent service from Dr.Newhouser. The medical assistant was also very good. However, I have to mention that the flu shot I received I think was done too high in my arm compared to other years, and caused me shooting pains for a few days.

Dr. Newhouser was very easy to approach & talk with. She spoke on a level that I could understand and took her time in evaluating what-ever we may have been discussing. I would recommend her to anyone!
