  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.

Dr Widmaier is not only an outstanding Doctor and surgeon but also has an excellent and friendly bedside manner. I tell everyone how pleased I am to have such a great doctor. I would recommend him to anyone. Other people have told me how great of a doctor he is. I hope he stays with Geisinger because a lot of the good ones leave.

Dr. James Widmaier seems to somehow go out of his way to be kind, add humor, and not talk down to patients. He's wise enough to know that some people may have expertise in things he never will. He's so amazing at what he does as a surgeon and as a human being. Not every day is a picnic but he doesn't trouble patients with his stressors. His compassion is equal to his skill and expertise in his field.

The physician gave me little instructions about what I should do at home. He showed no interest in the amount of pain I had - was very very brief.

Lots of pain in my right hip area & legs that pain (kind of) was not there before surgery.

this doctor always maintained an attitude of indifference with me. I feel he believes that the fact I had a drug issue for even a short time in my life.? that I am not worth helping. that I'll never be worth helping.

Dr. Widmaier was good at telling me what medicine to take, but showed little to no empathy/sympathy to me. He came off like he didn't care/annoyed.
