Dr. Jarvie continues to be a very informative and caring pediatrician. Our son likes him and how Dr. Jarvie treats him "like a big kid."

Excellent and a great communicator

Dr. Jarvie is a physician I would highly recommend. Both my children see this provider. He goes above and beyond for his patients.

Dr Jarvie is an incredible pediatrician. A calming influence, a friendly demeanor - a credit to Geisinger.

Dr. Jarvie has gotten to know both of my children very well, and always shows genuine concern for what is happening in the moment. We also REALLY appreciate him being in the practice on weekends. My son feels very safe with him, and given his frequency of illnesses and doctor visits, that's saying a lot.

Dr. Jarvie was great! He explained our sons condition, what to expect next, and reassured us that it is always okay to come in for a check when something arises that we are concerned about.

I've noticed on several occasions that Dr. Jarvie really blows off certain concerns that have been reputed by research and "talks down" to me when I bring them up. This time I brought up the concern that my son may have a small tongue tie. He took a quick (3 second) look and then told me something about how research shows beyond nursing, there's really no proof that it causes any problems. Fine, but there is no acknowledgement of my concern or even asking if I've noticed any problems related to it. It comes across as rather condescending. He did the same thing when my son was only a few months old and experiencing lots of gas and an immense amount of spit up - I felt like I was being lectured to (gas meds for infants are unnecessary and prescribed way to often) instead of having my concerns acknowledged and explained.

Dr Jarvie (and all the doctors here) are amazing!

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.

It seems since Dr. Jarvie's schedule change he is much more rushed during our visits.

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.
