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.

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.

I think doc Kreel is one of the best Geisinger doctors, they don't come any better for knowledge or the way she treats us

PA was wonderful

I felt like she knew what she was talking about however there was no concern for the agony I was experiencing and all I truly wanted to have some relief from this pain. She did after a conversation offer me a narcotic however she was reluctant. I would expect more from a specialist. Even if I had to be admitted and monitored. I would have done anything to get rid of this pain that I have been experiencing for over a month.
