Dr. Pride is an exemplary physician. He IS the definition of "Caring" within the Geisinger system. He is kind, gentle, takes his time and truly makes you feel like you matter to him.

These comments describe Dr. Pride. The resident who assisted was kind but very wrong in her diagnoses.

The doctors were more concerned in the amount of time for me then me, the patient. Like I said before, I waited 3 months to see a doctor for 2 medical problems. But at my appointment, they said they can only give me 20 minutes and only threat 1 medical problem and I need to schedule another appointment for the other medical problem. Now I need to wait almost another 3 months to see a doctor.

Dr. Pride was so nice and took his time discussing my daughter's issues with me. He was right down on the floor to examine my daughter as she played with the toys I had brought with me. As a result, she was extremely comfortable with him.

My teenage daughter is being treated for acne which can be a sensitive issue for a teenage girl. She was treated with sensitivity and respect from Dr.Pride. He recommended a potent medication with a plethora of side effects however gave her written material as well as verbal patient education. Our visit was very positive. I would highly recommend Dr.Pride and I consider us very lucky to have such a considerate and knowledgeable physician that is local.
