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. Tiwari was my daughter's dr. Because my daughter had a poor A1C Dr. Tiwari stated that children with good diabetes control have close relationships with their parents. I didn't say anything at the time but my daughter was very upset at her comment. First of all Dr. Tiwari has no idea what my daughter's relationship is with me and her father. She never asked just assumed. She says she is leaving Geisinger and for that we are glad. I don't want a Dr. seeing my daughter who just assumes the worse because of a poor reading. My daughter literally hates coming for her visits. Hopefully a new Dr. will change her mind.

I would highly recommend Dr. Tiwari. She has an excellent rapport with patient and family. She is very knowledgeable and kind.

We were there for a thyroid issue and the doctor did not really give us any more information about the issue than we previously had. She was more concerned that my daughter was "too thin" even though she is consistently growing and has always been thin. She was pushing that there had to be a reason like celiac or an eating disorder. She has no symptoms of celiac, but she insisted on getting her tested any way. We went to get more information for her hypothryoid and I don't feel like she gave us any new information about that condition at all.

Resident physician was unprofessional, medical student was great. Attending physician was great (at Knapper Clinic).
