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 40 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.

Dr. Danella has my utmost confidence.
Dec 23, 2015
I explained much of the above selections in an earlier written statement
Dec 18, 2015
Slightly disappointed that Dr. Danella was not immediately aware of an UltraSound that was completed in September, prior to my first appointment, that was re-scheduled. I brought scan data from previous Delta Medix visits. But based on comments from Dr. Danella, he was not fully aware that a follow-up ultra-sound was completed in the last 3-4 months as prep for this consultation.
Dec 11, 2015
Dr. Danella was very professional yet compassionate. I would unconditionally recommend him if the occasion presented itself.
Nov 13, 2015
dr danella is the best. I have had him for over 25 years. That is why I travel over 100 miles to see him.

*Dr. Danella is a exceptional physician surgeon. Geisinger is very fortunate having him as the director of Urology! He saved my life!
Jul 28, 2015
Bad - would never recommend him to anyone.

The reason I drive more than two hours to Wilks Barre is because Dr. Danella has hours there. I also like a certain Deli Cafe' down the road for lunch. Imparticular Dr. removed one of the meds perscribed by another doctor who no longer is with Geisinger. Dr D is not an advocate of loading you up with perscription drugs unless absolutely necessary. My condition improved, I'm feeling good and now Dr. D is concerned about the PSA and directed a blood test for evaluation. Again, he shows concern about anything down the road.
Jul 24, 2015
Verpy pleased with Dr. Danella.

Dr. Danella is a true professional. I have complete trust in his care.
June 22, 2015
*Dr. Danella only spent 5 to 10 min. in the room. I didn't know he wasn't coming back when he left. I had unanswered questions and he did not listen to my concerns.
