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.

He was not aware of a problem with a contraceptive that was currently in the news. That's a little concerning. He was recommending that contraception to me while he was unaware of very publicized problems.

Dr. Chiera treated me like I didn't know what I was talking about, treated me like I didn't have a say in anything.

The nurses thought I would be examined, so I was half _____ when the dr. talked to me. He never examined me this is NOT the way things should be done.

*Dr. Chiera insinuated that the exam showed concern. He said I would come back in 2 weeks & we would discuss the problems. I was concerned there was problems & would need follow-up care. However, all tests were negative. I am not sure why he acted like his exam already revealed that something was wrong.

I am planning a non-medicated, natural (hopefully no intervention or augmentation) child birth and feel uneasy about Geisinger policies though the drs seem okay about it.

*Dr. Chiera is wonderful. He made me feel at ease through my entire pregnancy and especially about my C-section. I feel very fortunate to have him as my doctor.

I found him to be very compassionate and capable.
