I would recommend Dr. Nathanson to anyone; however, I would also have to note that it will be near impossible to get an appointment since even as an established patient it is a job.

Worst experience in my life w this provider. Will never go back. Arrogant, dismissive & did nothing to make me feel at ease.

Dr. Nathanson was unable to access previous MRI disks because they were not from Geisinger & they were not stored because of your system. He needed to compare & was frustrated because he wasn't able -> NOT his fault.

Geisinger is lucky to have Dr Nathanson. He is truly one of thegood guys. In a time when I haven't been able to get any answers or help from other doctors, he took the time to listen and take care of me. It's clear how much he cares.

I have recommended care provider to others.

Dr. Nathanson is very professional - cordial & pt. specific with treatments & therapies.
Aug 12, 2016
Dr. never examined me!! Never gave treatment options. I had to ask to try something. He had no suggestions or advice; said he was very busy; & that at least I have been good for many years & now I am over 50 & should be happy I have done well for so long.

Doctor Douglas Nathansen showing me a graph on a computer program that is nearly 2 decades old and appears to have been copied off the NMSS website was not what I would call impressive. What I would like to see is actual facts of people who actually fought not those who chose to give up.

First time with Dr. Nwthanson, but his thorough exam and understanding of my case made me feel comfortable with the next step in my treatment.

Dr. Nathanson corrected a few misconceptions I had re: my condition. These corrections were made without any disrespect and actually lead to more questions from me.

I had a wonderful experience during my visit with Dr. Nathanson. However, after my visit, I had an MRI and NEVER heard back from Dr. Nathanson again. I called the office multiple times and left a myGeisinger message that was never responded to. I finally got in touch with Mary Jane who said she would call me back, but never did.
