  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.

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.

Dr. Nathanson thoroughly ROCKS, from his extraordinary knowledge base (encompassing new drug therapies for MS and international usage of them) to his ability to address all of my individual medical questions.

Dr. Nathanson since my child's very first visit has talked to my child & myself (his mom) about all issues concerning his MS & other medical issues which attribute to my son's condition. He is a very kind man & doctor. We are very thankful for him!

Both times I have seen Dr. Nathanson, I have been impressed. I like him personally and professionally. He makes me feel at ease, and explains things so I can understand. He is empathetic. Note: My issues are with Geisinger. See attached.
Nov 13, 2015
The problems I have had throughout the years led me to see him and his mannerisms and lack of concern or guidance is not what I expected. Too much time elapsed between issuing medication and not narrowing down any expectations of how to handle my situation

I would like to recommend my Dr. , but would not due to my own appts. not being handled well , lack of availability.

Dr. Natahanson came highly recommended by others with my condition (MS). As I had experienced at the Danville facility with Dr Hoegerl, Dr Nathanson spoke to me in somewhat technical terms which I have always valued. I see him as a tremendous asset to your facility.

*Dr. Nathanson is very good at explaining things, offering options and genuinely cares about his patients.

It is difficult answering many of the above questions, because the PA spent more time with me than my neurologist, Dr. Nathanson.

This was my first time meeting Tami and Dr. Nathanson. It was actually a fabulous experience. I felt everyone paid attention to me, and what I was saying. They really understood my issues, and addresses my concerns. I didn't feel rushed. Prior to this visit, I was beginning to doubt I'd ever go to Geisinger again. With this one visit, they brought me back!

Explains everything and answers all question.

I once saw a Geisinger ad that said something like "the benefits of urban medicine in a rural location" - Dr. Nathanson epitomizes this statement. To have someone who has his training and level of experience and expertise in this rural area is amazing. As if that were not already enough, he truly looks at my case, in the immediate future and as a whole. And he talks directly to me, not above me or around me. Thank you!

Dr. Nathenson spent plenty of time with me considering many options in my care and treatment. His concern regarding many physical problems left me feeling his concern as my physician.
June 16, 2015
I am very glad how they explain things for me to understand.
