It was not a good experience .I told him that the doctor always gave me a shot which took care of it. He ignored me completely and gave me a bag of pills which took about a week to take effect. If I do not have a medical dr. The next visit I will look for another medical center if this happens again.

I scheduled this appointment for a mole check. The day before my appointment I used MyGeisinger to send my provider a question regarding the appointment, asking specifically about a mole check. My provider responded in a timely manner. When I arrived at the appointment, I told the nurse what I was there for during the intake questions. When my provider arrived, he instead gave me a physical and was about to leave when I asked for my moles to be checked. If I hadn't asked, he wouldn't have even checked any moles. I scheduled the appointment intending to have many worrisome moles checked in various places on my body. The only moles that he looked at were those on my back. I was in the office for about 20 minutes total, and less than 5 minutes was spent discussing what I'd scheduled the appointment for. He ended up giving me a referral to the dermatologist. I left the appointment feeling displeased for several reasons. Despite having had an email conversation about my issue, it was as if my provider forgot why I was there and spent very little time on my complaint. Furthermore, with my insurance, I can self-refer. I feel as if my whole appointment was a waste of time when I could have (and suggested in my email conversation) simply gone to the dermatologist.

May 27, 2015
This was an exceptional visit---before I would leave frustrated because Dr. Oja seemed rushed and didn't seem to understand that I really needed to discuss my health issues to get the proper medications and care that I needed. On this visit Dr. Oja took the time to discuss options for medications to help with my health issues. I left the office feeling very good about my visit. Thank You Dr. Oja.

I have a lot of confidence in Dr. Oja as a physician.
Apr 6, 2015
Andy Oga was sincere, however, I feel he did not go far enough. I think he and others misdiagnosed my condition which anyone can do. However, I told him and others I had pain in more than my arm, yet they did not take x-rays of my back. Ok, I can forgive the aforementioned, however, when I called a day later to report paid at 9-10, they said to go to the ER if I could not tolerate the pain. I went to an insta care type operation and they gave me pain meds, which saved the day. Geisinger did not seem to care. As of the date of this writing, I still do not have pain meds from Geisinger. Eventually I was referred to a specialist to check my back and the appointment is 4-27-15. I felt pain management should have been addressed in a better way. No doctor would have put up with what I did.
