Just switched to Dr. Newhouser as my primary care physician as my previous physician left Geisinger. This was my first appointment with him for myself (he also cares for my father), and he was great.

Dr. Newhouser is always friendly and is concerned with your issues. We never feel as though we're being rushed during an appointment. I have already recommended him to other people.

I had many questions for Dr. Newhouser, especially as I was starting a new medication. He went over the pros and cons of each similar medication and made a recommendation. I have total confidence in him. He is always patient to answer my questions, sympathize with me, and never rush me.

My only complaint is that messages to the doctor via Mygeisingner go unacknowledged and often never reach him as far as I can determine. He promises to respond if he sees these messages. Questions SHOULD BE ANSWERED at least by the nurse.

Dr. Newhouser's nurse identified what health updates I needed and adjusted accordingly when I told her I needed more than what was scheduled. I had communicated that through MyGeisinger scheduling but it was in a fairly unused part of the notes she said. Dr. Newhouser was nonjudgemental, spent as much time as needed, and was very thorough about going over all my health concerns. He also gave me the least pap smear I have ever had, communicated what he was doing and when, which was much appreciated. I have highly recommended him to others in the past.

This is the first time I had seen Dr. Newhouser. I thought he had an excellent patient rapport. He took time to answer my questions and was genuinely engaged throughout the visit.

An absolutely pleasant experience with this provider. Great listening skills, easy to speak with. Most of all, he tested my complaint right there in the examination room, and he turned out to be correct- no need for labs! He also shared about another problem I brought up unexpectedly, so it could be followed up-what a caring and helpful professional!

Overall in my opinion, I've found the best medical staff/office, ever. I'm extremely satisfied.
Sep 2, 2015
Dr Newhouser spent time asking me questions to better understand my symptoms, explaining the results of my recent labs and giving me options for treatment. He was very open to letting me decide how I would next like to proceed.

This doctor does not know my history on me? Cause of my records (for some reason has not been sent) from my other doctor? So, I feel he is not treating me for the right reasons why I'm there? I'm still suffering - - -

We just started seeing Dr. Newhouser and we are so impressed with the time, patients and respect he treats our individuals at the Arc of Centre County. We couldn't be more pleased with his care.

Message left for me Friday night about results of tests. That was very considerate so that I would not have to worry over the weekend. However, that left me with unanswered questions. I should have just called in to speak with the doctor. I did finally talk to a nurse and had some questions answered and suggestions to help with symptoms. However, I have not really been sure how long I should continue to put up with the symptoms before coming back for more tests.
