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.

Your survey needs to include "N/A". As far as the care provider using words an average person might understand. When asked what the ekg told him, he referred to a "Bundle". I sent an Email to Wm. F. Taylor for a translation. Dr Lesko wasn't an option for me.

I have been very satisfied with Geisinger care at _____, Scenery Park, & Gracys Woods. Physicians are excellent, and very knowledgeable.

Dr. Lesko is knowledgeable, professional, caring, an excellent cardiologist. I'm happy that I can find such wonderful care in State College.

There is a problem with test results getting into Geisinger Electronic Data Record of me from my Primary Care Physician at Mt Nittany Physicians Group I informed Dr. Lesko that the Test Data was in fact was sent to Geisinger, and I confirmed this with several calls to Geisinger.. However Dr Lesko didn't see it after searching your Electronic File. I insisted & the Dr left for a while and came back with the Test Data. Your System has a hole, where ALL patient data is NOT kept together for the Dr's review. Which was the purpose of my visit. I attempted to ensure, by repeated calls, that my Test results were in Geisinger possession. There was considerable time lapse between my Test & appt. w/Dr. Lesko.

Dr. Lesko is friendly and pleasant, but his explanations tend to be less complete than I would like. I like to know as much as possible about my condition and have found that Rebecca Roan (PA in this office) is a much better and more through explainer.

Had a good experience.

Dr Lesko was my alternative doctor and did a great job of fitting me into his schedule. I did not think that my quality of care suffered at all.
