Its always a very pleasant visit. because I ask a lot of questions, and always happy with results and concern, age is only a number as far as I am concerned as I am concerned, so I ask a lot of questions which are always answered .

Dr. Lillimars listened to my questions concerning alternative treatments. His input as to why those alternatives may or may not work in my situation was extremely enlightening. I felt he truly was listening to me. We also have communicated via MyGeisinger several times and I also felt that helpful.

I cloud see some one for my knees that is 5 minutes from my house, but I drive 45+ miles one way to see this provider because of his caring demeanor
May 2
However, I had a diff friend w/me at each appt I was seen by the dr & each friend stated, "your dr isn't very friendly." I told them each "that's just him." Some people may be put off by his lack of being "personable."#1. Very reserved. Should smile once in a while.

I was not given test results, had to call for them. Not happy about that. The follow up concern for the patient was VERY LACKING. Physician may have known the test results, but I did not. Results were not shown on My Geisinger, untal much later. Had the results been posted, I would not needed a call from the physician.
