This appointment was a primarily meet-and-greet with Dr. Newhouser, whom I chose when Dr. Maxin retired. So far, I think it was a good choice.

I'm not sure I received a thorough physical. Many exams that had been done before were not done.

Excellent RN and physician care.

It isn't often that I leave a physician's office feeling like I was listened too that my thoughts were taken into consideration for my treatment plan as well as the doctor's expertise, but Dr. Newhouser has consistently treated me this way from our very first appointment. He is very wholistic when treating me and I appreciate that. He suggests lifestyle changes and alternatives in addition to the medication he prescribes and always makes sure that before I leave I feel confident about our plan of treatment. He is easy to talk to as well and asks valuable questions. He is an exceptional doctor and I have recommended him several times.

I always can ask for a layman's version of a medical terms.

He's young and I'm not completely confident he has the experience or passion to handle a special case as mine. Feel he's a good GP but I'd need someone else if I had any concerns about a cold turning into a hospital stay. Excellent listener.

Dr Newhouser is the BEST

Dr. Newhowser made me feel very comfortable. I was hesitant at first in seeing him because I was being seen for an allergic reaction/infection to a spider bite on my upper thigh. But there was no awkwardness. He put me at ease.

I switched to Dr. Shane Newhouser after my previous physician left. My first visit with Dr. Newhouser was a wonderful experience and was glad I selected him. He was very thorough in reviewing my chart and was very patient in listening to my questions. He made me feel very comfortable and my entire experience at this visit confirmed that I had selected a great physician!

I have already referred several people to Dr. Neuhouser. I like him. he did not rush to finish our appointment. he was easy to talk to. the one thing I did not like, and took offense to, was that I had to sign a paper saying I would not abuse pain med, would not share med with others, would keep scheduled appointments, etc. I am 65, have been a Geisinger patient for most of my life, and have been on a pain med of one type or another, for a while. any med I have been on does not take my pain away, but rather makes it tolerable and helps my quality of life.

Very pleased with Dr. Newhouser.

Dr. Newhouser is an excellent family physician. Dr. main, who is retiring, was my doctor for 39 years. Dr. Newhouser is also outstanding and I have the utmost confidence in him and his care for me.
May 23
I just switched to Dr. Newhauser as my GP and I really like the level of care he provides me. He is always attentive and makes sure to ask how I am feeling or do I have any questions or concerns that he has not answered before leaving the office.

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.
March 28
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.
March 22
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.
March 4
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.
