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.

Dr Jarvie did not what a d diner test was or how to easily do a work up for a pulmonary embolus.

This was the first time our family has seen this doctor. He was AMAZING! We appreciate the care and concern he gave.

Dr Jarvis is the best! Thank you for talking with my son and taking care of him.

Not impressed with his dismissal of my sons potential for allergies this time of year. Said "what's in bloom now- nothing" did not give me confidence. As someone who struggled (and whose spouse also currently struggles) with migraines that have a huge allergy component, this showed a lack of competence. Whether allergies are affecting you or not this or any time of year depends what you're allergic to! Also not impressed with him discouraging use of Tylenol when my son was clearly miserable- to us it sounded a lot like "don't take that. That will just prolong the illness and make him feel better." Even if it prolongs it a couple days but he isn't miserable, isn't that something we could consider worth it (or shouldn't that be left to us)! Totally on board with no antibiotics unless absolutely necessary and all of the holistic treatments, but as someone who has had major issues with allergies all her life, this just seemed like a particularly misinformed statement.

Dr. Jarvie isn't our primary pedi at this office, but both of my kids have seen him on different occasions. He's great!

Dr. Jarvie has always been wonderful! I have recommended Geisinger to all my friends. We lived in Pittsburgh and dealt with UPMC Children's and it was not a good experience at all.

Dr. Jarvie was very helpful explaining immunizations and introducing food.

Dr. Jarvie is just great! He has a wonderful bed side manner. Not only with my kids but also witht the e mother of one of our foster kids. He is kind, informative but not condesending. He is a joy to work with!

Dr. Jarvie is excellent in every way. He takes time to answer questions, he's positive, and he's very good with little kids!

I wish I would have been more informed about whether or not it was contagious. He mentioned she had a "croupy cough" and inflamed vocal cords. I didn't take that as she has croup and after online research I realized she probably went into daycare and spread it all around the next day.

I appreciate Dr. Jarvie's knowledge and care for his patients. However, he seems very dismissive of the idea that anything is ever a genuine concern. I appreciate his reassurance most of the time, since I understand that as a parent I can more easily become worried about something when it really isn't an issue, but I'm not convinced that he would give sincere attention to my concerns even if they were valid and needed further attention.

Really enjoy Dr. Jarvie. He is very thorough!

Dr Jarvie has always been really good with our boys. He is straight forward and tells it like it is. Me or my sons can ask him any question and he will always answer it straight forward
Jul 19, 2015
I had pre-warned Dr Jarvie about a growing concern over my 10 year olds weight but that he was very sensitive to it. He handled it really well by talking to him about changing a few things but NOT dieting. My child really took it to heart - his style an approach works

On something could talk or be little longer time explain thins.

Dr Jarvie is an asset to the Geisinger family. Always takes time to discuss any concerns, talks in a comforting way, gives advice without making parents feel inadequate or incapable.

I gave negative results for explanation of illness and confidence because the actual condition later found at the ER was so much more severe than "allergies". The picture of orbital cellulitis was actually the exact image of my daughters eye, which was obvious even to the ER Dr. - not pediatrics. I was also sent home with a $300+ rx for allergies not covered by my insurance. Dr Jarvie was friendly and informative just informed with inaccurate information that could have resulted in permanent damage. Disappointed to say the least{illegible or inappropriate content}.
June 6, 2015
Very sensitive situation for my daughter; he was excellent and was amazing.
May 31, 2015
Dr. Jarvie is generally a little nonchalant. I think it's a generally good approach with parents but sometimes it leaves me feeling like he's not being thorough.

excellent doctor.
