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.

Dr O has always been wonderful. He knows how hard it is for me to walk so he informed me that the next visit would be scheduled for the clinic at Selinsgrove.
June 17
He was arrogant and acted like my condition and concerns were a joke. He discredited everything my primary care physician has advised. He acted like my surgeon was completely wrong in his concerns and treatments. He said I don't look like someone with that problem and there are no treatments or medications to slow down arthritis. He made me feel stupid for being there and I will never go to geisinger again if that is the kind of people you have working for your facility.

dr Olenginski was very professional, yet very personable. He addressed my appointment issues and explained everything to me completely. I was very pleased with this appointment and if needed would be very pleased to meet with him again.

went in for flare of ra. Trying to find drugs that work after anaphalaxic shock from humira. Dr. never received blood test results. shook my hand and said i will see you in 3 months. I will call and advise when i get the results of bloodwork. I have since then been told to double one of the meds. I am still in flare and pain and now trying to start a new job in a flare and waiting to give it a few weeks before i call back if i can. I drove 4 hours for a 5 minute handshake and no results or hope of results working in our favor. Very disappointed.

Dr. O is the best!! He has been by doc for over 15 years!
March 28
I have all the confidence in the world that Dr. OLengenski is informed of all options available for me, explains the options thoroughly and why, and together we decide on a plan.
March 22
Dr. O was exceptional that day. His concern to get me to use less pain medication was great. His suggestion to use a different approach to the problem is working out just fine. I have had much more mobility since the visit. I have recommended him before and I will do so in the future.
March 3
I like that Dr. Olenginski listens attentively to my questions & answers them without being impatient.
Feb 24
Dr. Olenginski has been very helpful in assessing and managing my clinical condition on an ongoing basis. He listens to all my concerns, examines me and plans out the strategy to resolve most of them. He even writes down on a piece of paper some of the analysis for me to review later on if I need to. He is easily accessible for emergencies.

Jan 26
The resident that I seen was very caring and listened to my problems. The doctor did not listen, did not care and gave me no answers on what could be wrong with me. He ordered tests and have not heard back on what he might be theogonic the problem is or what to do now.

I always look forward to my appointment with Dr. Olengenski. He takes time to explain every thing that is important to me.
Dec 28, 2015
Dr. Olenginski is a fantastic Doctor.
Dec 11, 2015
Dr. Olenginski took a considerable amount of time to HAND WRITE info. about biologics because of my concerns. He made it understandable as well as knowledgeable. I can't thank him enough for the time and effort he put into my appointment. I never had a doctor do that.

Dr Olengenski is a fabulous Dr I would follow him anywhere. He seems to care how things are going and how you are feeling. He responds well to my questions and helps as good as he can.

I've had many doctors in my 52 years, esp since breaking my neck 40 years ago, and Dr. Olenginski is perhaps the best I've ever had: professional yet friendly; time efficient and yet patient, thorough and non-patronizing when answering my questions and explaining things. Simply: I really like him.

Already recommend this care provider.
Aug 21, 2015
I would highly recommend Dr. Thomas P. Olenginski. I was very impressed being a new patient he sent me the results of the tests he ordered the same day. He is a very pleasant and took the time to explain his thoughts concerning my problem. 5 stars without a doubt! This also applies to Dr. West.
Aug 19, 2015

Aug 10, 2015
My DR. is very caring
Aug 7, 2015
I had a very positive experiences with Dr. Olenginski. He was very informative and his communication between doctor and patient was excellent. He sent mygeisinger messages explaining lab and test results on non-work days in order to keep me informed. He went above and beyond with sending a letter of fitness membership cancellation because of my injuries. I appreciate the time and effort he puts into make my health a priority.
