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.

Good.

Dr. Dunn showed excellent listening skills, caring attitude, and a high level of technical expertise.
Nov 28, 2016
Dr. O was very thorough and explained the med to me as well as showing me where to find information about it on the wrb
Nov 23, 2016
The physician made me feel like his time was wasted. He said "I don't know why this should concern you". I don't go to the clinic for every little thing. I have had the symptoms for over four months before the appt. My family med physician ordered the referral. I also spent money to see this physician - which I feel was wasted due to the lack of concern by the physician.
Nov 10, 2016
Wonderful care!
Oct 27, 2016
Have already recommended Dr. Olenginski to others.

Sep 29, 2016
I truly trust and enjoy dr.olinginsky.i've been seen by 4-5 other drs. in this department and by far this is the best one.
Sep 27, 2016
I like the dr but it just seems like he wants me in and out , I don't understand why he can't further test my body to see what's wrong w me . it's depressing
Sep 21, 2016
I, like most patients, forget things I wanted to ask upon arrival. I feel as though providers, primarily doctors/PAs, should ask more questions. After my appointment I remembered things I wanted to ask and also remembered other symptoms. I know these doctors deal with this all the time but for some people this is their first time experiencing this and may have signs/symptoms they are not even aware of. More tests were pending so decisions on treatment and follow up care are still mainly unknown.
Sep 20, 2016
Rheumatologists do perform a thorough examination from viewpoint of organs and systems that get affected by RA. I would appreciate it that clinical examination is carried out on the examination table and more thoroughly.
Sep 13, 2016
I can't express enough good opinions about Dr. Olenginski and his staff. I think he is the best!
Aug 31, 2016
It is always a pleasure to talk with Dr. Olengenski. He has a sense of humor and always listens to my problems.
Aug 29, 2016
Dr.Olinginski is the best _____ - I've been with him for many year & I've had others when I was younger.

VERY GOOD DOCTOR

I already refereed and am grateful for the care Dr Olenginski is giving me.
Jul 29, 2016
Good
Jul 14, 2016
Everything was good.
June 23, 2016
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, 2016
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.
June 10, 2016
Yes, I would recommend Dr. Olenginski spent a good half hour with me explaining the importance of _____ and how rare the side effects occur.
June 6, 2016
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.
May 31, 2016
Very good experience, especially compared to prior visits w/Drs. Sharma and Schroeder.
May 23, 2016
Dr. was very rude and acted like he didn't have the time to deal with my issue!#5. None given.

May 2, 2016
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.
Apr 20, 2016
love my Doctor. He has helped me beyond belief.
Apr 8, 2016
great job,doctor made me feel like I was his most important patient.
Apr 1, 2016
Dr. O is the best!! He has been by doc for over 15 years!
March 28, 2016
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, 2016
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, 2016
I like that Dr. Olenginski listens attentively to my questions & answers them without being impatient.
Feb 24, 2016
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.
