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.

We thoroughly enjoy working with Dr. Tiwari. She is very professional and responds to questions in a manner that the common everyday person can understand what the problem is and what the solution can be.

Dr. Tiwari was wonderful with my son. She made him feel comfortable talking about his insulin resistance and weight issues. He really listened to her, which is something he does not like to do when someone is talking to him about his health. He said she was the best doctor he's ever had at Geisinger and he felt she treated him with respect and was not critical. The fact that he is actually trying to follow her suggestions regarding diet, exercise, and sleep shows how well she connected with him.
