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.

very reassuring and considerate about the injection, left me know degree of discomfort/pain I would have and what to expect within the next few days

I think my broken foot should have been re-casted, not just a cloth boot

Dr. Crofoot spent time asking questions about my knee condition, examine my knee, and giving me a diagnosis. she answered all my questions and was thorough in every respect. I wish all doctors were like her.

I had surgery and when cast /splint was removed by nurse and provider came in she didn't even look at the incision. Ask a few questions and then said I could go. There was no mention regarding any therapy and when I could do what until I asked. I had a previous surgery and maybe she thought I remembered what I needed to do afterward but that was months ago. I knew I needed exercises etc but I did not recall what they were or when to start them. I liked her follow through with the first one, but definitely not the 2nd.

I was pleased with this visit.

Dr. Crofoot hadn't even heard the findings of the PA when she blew in, moved and poked my knee for about 15 seconds and made diagnosis! I think she is wrong, as there is something on the side of my knee that rolls back and forth. She assigned a knee brace and therapy. She used too many big words. AND---I had complications that night from the 'sleeve' brace...when I took it off for bed less than 12 hours after it was put on, I had red, swollen high marks where the red 'grippers' are on top of the sleeve!! It felt like fire!!! I called back to their office Monday morning (still having the marks but not as swollen) and when I got the return call, they offered me an appointment on Friday!!! That would have been an entire week since I had the first effects and the marks surely would have been gone by then!!! Today is the Wednesday following my visit, and the marks are still there but much more faint. I think it may have been an allergic reaction and needs to be documented should I come across this rubbery material again. She just didn't seem to care.

Keep up the good work.

MaryBeth was very good. First time I met her. Really liked her a lot. Dr. Crofoot was fabulous. Very caring and compassionate. Very thorough and even had her secretary call after to recommend a college in GMC to begin the workup on my son since the problem he has may be expensive. Dr. Seeley felt they could save us travel and money possibly manage pain until we decide how to handle. I love the care could not ask for more caring people! Definitely recommend! I heard my son telling his friends already :)

And she is what I got. I'm had many doctors since I was seen for a broken leg; had over 20 surgeries and implant for back pain, a stint is my heart & she is the worst. My PC couldn't hardly believe it! #8. 5 min.

My experience with *Dr. Carmen Denise Crofoot & her staff were excellent in all ways, she is a compliment to GHS!

Reason for visit - instability of left knee - not knee pain. I was advised that I must undergo bilateral x-rays at the beginning of my visit. I attempted to refuse the x-rays as it was clear they would not reveal any useful information other than I have degeneration, which I did not need a doctor to tell me. Dr. Crofoot would not agree to see me unless I underwent X-rays of left and right knees. I did not have right knee complaints yet now I have a right knee x-ray in my medical history that could adversely affect me in the future. For example - what if I now injure my right knee and end up in litigation? There is a possibility that benefits could be denied based upon the fact that I recenlty had a righ knee x-ray since people typically don't undergo x-rays unless they are having issues. Additionally, I must now pay for x-rays that I did not require or request. If mandatory x-rays are part of Geisinger's policy, it is an obvious money grab. I will not be returning to Geisinger for any orthopedic issues in the future.

I liked *Dr. Crofoot and her treatment of my broken knee cap. I would like to have an appointment because I am having a sharp pain in my knee periodically (and an x-ray).

Nurse and PA OK. Surgeon is aloof.

Dr. Crofoot explained everything to me about my condition. I was very pleased with her.
