The PA was very nice. The doctor, while nice, seemed like he wasn't very interested. He said that I had a hernia and that there was nothing he could do because basically it took too long for me to get the appointment. that's your scheduling issue, not mine.

This was just a follow-up visit from surgery 2 years ago and also seeing the situation with my other knee. Concerns that the other knee may have similar issues to the first one and may need surgery in the future.

dr Lillmars and lauren, P.A., were very helpful in answering all my questions and reviewing my surgery. I felt very confident in their care and attention. It had been a difficult time for me and at last I felt that my problems would be fixed and my pain dealt with.

Dr. Lillmars is a very competent, compassionate physician. I have recommended him to many people since I first saw him several years ago.

Dr. Lillmars became a hero to me back in 2003 (I think) when I first became a patient of his. I was having a lot of trouble with my left foot and no one was doing anything to find out what was wrong. My PCP finally sent me to Orthopedics at Geisinger and Dr. Lillmars. He proceeded to do everything possible and found what was going on. He has stayed on top of everything since. And I truly grateful to him and to God for bringing us together.

Dr. Lillmars is a good listener and a great doctor.
Sep 6, 2016
I feel Dr. Lillmars is a very competent doctor but his schedule either is too full or he needs to be more prompt with appointments. Patients have schedules to keep too.

Dr. Lillmars was excellent !
June 27, 2016
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 .

He sent me home with no explanation at all. No treatment. Had no clue what was wrong with me. Had to go to my primary dr. to find out I had a bladder infection

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.

Dr. Lillmars is an excellent physician. he is kind and compassionate. All my concerns and questions were answered. My procedure was done with skill and experience.
May 11, 2016
I spent over an hour to see the doctor who spent about 3 minutes with me.
May 2, 2016
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.
May 2, 2016
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
