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.

This doctor is condescending and rude. He outright accused me of being a drug addict because I asked for pain meds to deal with my excruciating pain! I was only given 6 percocet in ER. They were used in the first 24 hrs as prescribed. I have no history of any addiction issues. He also promised a prescription for a walker and then never gave it. I had to have a clerk chase him down for my script.

I did NOT SEE the x-rays that were taken. Both knees were done. Would have liked to see the x-rays.
Aug 2
I want to see Dr. because of severe pain behind knees and trip - nurse took x-rays and said Dr. will be in after reviewing x-rays. He was in in 5 seconds - couldn't have had time to review.Dr. walked in the room - looked at me and said (not nicely) YOU HAVE ARTHRITIS! Which I knew - - - I said I know that but I have pain BEHIND my knees - he said rudely "I don't know - I'm a surgeon so if you want your knees replaced - - - as he was reaching for the door! Spent 3 minutes (at most) with me. Will be going to Sun Ortho - - -

Although I left feeling very frustrated, the Dr. is a excellent surgeon, and I trust his skills as such.

The fair comment is in regards to the phone call
May 31
Extremely pleased with all the staff especially Dr. Fanelli. He took the time to answer my questions and show me what we are looking at with regards to my medical situation. I feel very comfortable and confident that I am in excellent caring hands.
May 31
The PA was the primary provider and was very knowledgeable. The surgeon spent less than 5 minutes in the exam room with me.
May 24
Most of the information was given by the P.A. The Doctor spent very little time in the room .
May 17
Spent minutes with me..as I was talking to him another person opened door and began talking to him...the doctor ignored me as I was talking to him...i could not of felt more insignificant

Dr. Fanelli is a no-nonsense, confident in his decisions and ability, he knows what he's saying and doing and leaves no doubts a man of few words and I appreciate his confidence and abilities.

I would highly recommend Dr. Fanelli and his staff, Woodbine Clinic, Geisinger Medical Center and Geisinger PT for anyone having a knee replacement. I have had the best possible care. My wife is considering transferring her care to Fanelli/Woodbine Clinic from Sun Ortho.

Minimal contact most information came from reading x ray and MRI.

No problems everything was good.

Dr. Fanalli is my surgeon. He is wonderful - I really trust him for others as well as myself.

Dr. Fanelli didn't spend more than five minutes with me. He said the therapist would release me and I told him he had too. Also did not want to go over my Functional Capacity Evaluation results. Not a good listener and no bedside manor.

Got checked in. Sat in chair w/gown on. Dr. Fannelli came in, jumped on exam table & said you can have surgery or let it go. Jumped off table & put hand on door to leave. I stopped him to ask a few questions of him while his hand was on the door. 2 minutes in office could of told me that on phone. Very poor!

Three people were involved in my care. Nurse practitioner who gave me a shot, another gentleman whose capacity I don't know, and the Dr. The Dr. was in the room for perhaps 3 minutes. Asked me one question. He did not lay hands on me, nor did anyone else save for the xray tech and the nurse practitioner. I felt like I was on a conveyor belt. Hurry through - your problem and your pain are not important to us. Yes, you waited a long time to see us, but we are very busy, and you are taking our all-too-valuable time. I left with no more understanding of my problem than when I arrived. And, unfortunately, nobody bothered to take the time to even listen to my concerns. As I began to ask a question, the doctor was out the door.

Somewhat abrupt

Dr. Fanelli is a wonderful doctor/surgeon - he takes his time and answers any questions.

I am very pleased with the care received by Dr. Fanelli and Jenna Lindenmuth, PA. Jenna answers MyG messages promptly, is knowledgeable and has been very helpful during all of my visits and flexible with return visits. During all three visits, I've been seen within minutes of my appointment time which is awesome!

Dr. spent approx. 3 min. with me. Came in with knee problem and he never even examined my knee.
