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 hard to understand. Sometimes it feels like he is reading from a script

When I brought our son in, we thought maybe he had appendicitis. The doctor upon examination immediately scheduled him for a CT scan and when they reviewed the scan, he immediately called a surgeon and sent us to the appropriate facility for treatment. When we arrived in Danville, everything was ready for us for admissions, etc.

His accent was difficult for the kids to understand.

Like the nurse, the doctor was very patient with a screaming child who didn't want to be touched. He tried to ease our son. Seems very experienced in working with children.

Kind of hard to understand him. He took awhile to type everything in the chart. I had to kind of help him answer the questions. I was at the point that I would have rather typed it myself. Seems like a good doctor, but I only had my son see him, because of urgent appointment needed and no other doctors in the Philipsburg Office that day. He needs to be more cautious about asking young kids specific questions--like "you have/stay with Grandmother?" that doesn't go over very well with my son, because he has no Grandmothers and it gets him upset to think about the one he remembers that died when he was younger.
