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.

I have total confidence & trust in Dr. Danella.

I have great confidence in Dr. Danella but since he is in Wilkes Barre most of the week I know he would prefer to have me seen by a PA. That being the case, I would rather start going to a local urologist here in Williamsport. My local Urologist will usually see me directly, and if he occasionally assigns me to the PA, at least I won't be traveling an 80-mile round trip to see a PA.

My only complaint is that I was not told that bleeding or blood in the urine might well continue for 3 weeks after the biopsy of the Prostate. My PCP told me this 10 days later. I was merely given a booklet saying I should expect bleeding for 3 days. Well, I have "thin" blood.
