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.

The appointment was at the end of the day so maybe that was the reason but I felt a bit rushed. I didn't feel like I had time to think of any questions.

The two specialist I saw were fantastic. They both explained and showed me my health issues. Also made the nurse change my appointment so another doctor has the test back to deal with. I was suppose to see the doctor before any tests were done.

Delighted that Dr. Kreel is still on the job!!! Even if it's only partial time. Brilliant, you would swear that you are family or at least a long time personal friend. Just INCREDIBLE.

Dr. Kreel is an excellent ENT. I would highly recommend her.

Although the provider was friendly - I was not satisfied with why she did not comment per associate physician misdiagnosing a dental issue as acute sinusitis, with wrong medication prescribed. Also, she did not comment per my email that I had been seen by an ENT for hearing aid evaluation prior to seeing my dentist for the dental issue, and no sinus problem were diagnosed by the ENT.

While removing wax from left ear the instrument used poked in my ear causing a very sharp pain - my ear has not been normal since that incident.

My experience with Dr. Kreel was very good while I was there. She recommended I have septoplasty to correct my problem. I contacted the office four time during the following week to schedule the procedure. To date I've not heard back from any about scheduling the procedure and am looking out side the Geisinger network for another Dr.
