very confident and comfortable in my dealings with Dr. Huntington

Dr. Huntington is one of the most caring doctors I have ever met. He always takes the time to answer any questions and explain anything you need. He never makes you feel rushed which is great. I've had a personal experience with him when I needed to talk to someone and I didn't have an appointment but flagged him down and he took the 5 minutes to answer and explain the questions that my OBGYN wouldn't give me a straight answer to while I was pregnant. He is also a great asset to your company

Dr. Huntington is very concerned about your problems. He is very easy to talk to - and very knowledgeable. The best we have ever had.

so far he seems like a good Dr.

I have undergone many traumatic life events which were handled with care compassion and direct care. I was nervous of total disclosure (too much for one person to experience, yet I'm still here!) and was received warmly and thoroughly. for this, I am extremely grateful and WILL refer many of my customers to Dr. Huntington AND staff! THANK YOU

After the hour wait, I was very anxious by the time the doctor arrived. I did get my primary concern addressed, but I still had ongoing concerns from previous visit that I do not feel I was able to get addressed properly.
Aug 8
Dr. Huntington is very kind & helpful. He is very intelligent doctor. Geisinger should be proud to have him on their staff. I am so happy to have him as my family doctor.

Doctors need more time with their patients.

"Very" hard to get a call back after 3x or any response through MyGeisinger. New to MyGeisinger & if not responded, why should I bother using it?

Caring, kind, courteous, professional.

Dr. Huntington is the best. My wife and I have never had a better doctor. The state of the operations at Kistler, however, are having us face the difficult decision of leaving his office, though. We don't want to leave Dr. Huntington, but it's a consistently frustrating experience at Kistler.
June 29
Dr. Huntington is the best
June 28
However, my referring anyone to the Geisinger system at this point is slim to none. My daughter who has health issues as well can't get an appointment. Again, unacceptable.

Best doctor I've had in years. He actually listened and cared about my concerns. He asked very thorough questions because he genuinely wanted to know and not because he was obligated to. Very informative when I needed him to be ,and simple and to the point when I didn't need him to be.
May 18
Dr. Huntington is simply outstanding. You are very fortunate to have him on your staff.

Don't know why he ordered HIV test. Never talked about sexual partners. Told him I had a mole or age spot on my face and he ordered a HIV test. Was this part of my code I signed up for?
Apr 15
Dr Huntington is excellent. He was very thorough and pin pointed my problem. I recommend him highly.

Apr 9
Dr Huntington and Nurse Damien were so great! I truly felt like they both cared so much about my health issue at the time. I am so happy I received such care from a nurse and Doctor I have never seen before (I am a patient of Dr Fisher). As a health care provider myself I appreciate all of the professionalism and genuine care I received from them both. Thank you so much!
Apr 6
The care was very good. But the pass years. They see you. Like a assembly line, at a factory. This is why were getting a new provider.

Dr. Huntington was great with my daughter- very informative, friendly, on time, respectful.

I was probably in the room with him for maybe 2 minutes. Did not explain anything. I made a list prior to appt to discuss all I did was mention one thing and he left. HORRIBLE!!
March 7
Dr. Huntington is one of your best doctors, concerned , answered questions.. quieted fears... he is the best !!!
March 3
I have already recommended Dr. Huntington to friends.
Feb 29
It is difficult to get an appointment with my PCP(Hunntington) I have chronic, complex health problems and when I see a new doctor I have to start at Day 1 which was years ago. This is emotional distressing for me to talk about how I have declined.
Feb 22
I think the doctor is very good the only problem is getting an appointment with the doctor so in many instances when I am sick I have to go to the emergency or see another doctor because my doctor is full with appointments.
Feb 15
My biggest concern was voiced earlier. Doctor is too rushed in the exam. Physicians need to be able to spend time talking with patients to better understand the full picture. I wonder how much is not cared for because you rush the doctors too much.
Feb 4
I am happy with th experience of getting an appointment through My Geisinger
Feb 1
I like Dr. H, very knowledgeable. However, the visit seemed rushed. wanted to about additional issues ... and I do understand the clinic is getting more patients..
Feb 1
Wonderful visit. Dr. Huntington was a great help to me and I was very satisfied with his efforts to help me with my medications.
Jan 29
Geisinger only allows twenty minutes per visit so its hard not to hear the clock ticking.
Jan 27
The visit resulted in a referral to a cardio doc. Dr. H. explained the EKG and told me what he saw and the reason for the referral. After he left and I was putting on my coat he came back to make sure things had sunk in and that I understood -- appreciated his concern. He and I have a great relationship.
Jan 12
Dr. H is the best around!
Jan 11
Takes time, explains everything. listens to all concerns. Feel confident and trusting of his care. Has best interest of patients throughout appointment and follow up. Same level of service I remember from Dr. Kistler. I would not change physicians. A credit to the clinic in the best traditions of Doc Kistler.

Dr Huntington did a great job, as he always has. He is a credit to Geisinger as an employee, a credit to his profession, and a credit to himself as a man.
