Excellent, caring service, as always.

I have had Dr Huntington as my Dr for awhile and he is always professional, knowledgeable and caring. Happy to have a Dr who I trust with my medical concerns
June 29
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.

Dr. Huntington is the best

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.

I THINK HE IS A VERY GOOD DOCTOR.
May 25
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.

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.

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.

Nov 30, 2015

Nov 20, 2015
Have always had a good re pore with my provider
Nov 18, 2015
Dr Huntington is second to none.
Nov 10, 2015
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.
Nov 6, 2015
Email test results in a way that is understandable not in doctors terms.
Nov 5, 2015
All very good.
Nov 4, 2015
He is very good every time I see him.
Oct 28, 2015
Very attentive & concerned. Very satisfied.
Oct 23, 2015
Check the system not the care provider.
Oct 14, 2015
This was a new dr. and in my current condition I need someone with experience. This dr does not have the experience I would prefer. Otherwise, he was very polite and concerned. Also stated I would get my flu and tetnus shot of which neither I received.
Oct 5, 2015
It's pretty bad when your Doctor which you have been seeing since he came into practice at Kistler Clinic does not remember who you are or where you live or what medications he himself prescribed to you to take. I have lost all faith in him during this last visit, he didn't even remember who I was.
Sep 28, 2015
Dr Huntington is the best doctor by far that I have ever dealt with.
Sep 28, 2015
I had Dr. Huntingdon (sp?) on a whim- he is not my actual PCP, but my visit was not planned ahead; i had to see a doctor right away, so i took the first available appointment. I liked him so much that i might switch to having him as my doctor if i can. And i actually really like my current doctor- its just that he was so caring and friendly and genuine. I think that he is really great and i felt very comfortable with him. He is the type of guy i want in charge of my health.
Sep 25, 2015
My visits with Dr, Huntington are always great and the staff are always pleasant
Sep 24, 2015
Dr. Huntington apologized for being late. I thanked him and explained that I do not mind waiting because when it is my time to see him, he does not make me feel rushed. He always listens and addresses my concerns. He's a great doctor.
Sep 23, 2015
the Dr. went above what was expected. His help in prescriptions, help save me money
Sep 10, 2015
Could not be better!
Aug 31, 2015
The care provider was excellent with regards to everything. I only have two complaints here...I was with the provider for approximately 10-15 minutes maximum out of an appointment that was about 50-60 minutes long. This was partially due to the provider running a test for me. However, the test takes 5 minutes to run and it took the provider about 30 mins to return to me. Likely bc he had a number of other patients to see. I was willing to overlook this. The only thing that bothered me is that I called the next day asking to speak to the provider. His assistant called me back. He couldnt answer my questions. I asked to speak with the doctor. His assistant called me back again. He couldnt answer my additional questions. I asked to speak with the doctor. His assistance called me back again with some answers but clearly I had wanted to speak with the doctor. This I felt was unacceptable and the only reason I am even completing this survey as it would have taken less than 5 minutes for the doc to chat with me himself.

If it wasn't for *Dr. Huntington I would not go to a Geisinger Facility.
