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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
