Dr Huntington is second to none.

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.

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.

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!

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.

Dr Huntington is a wonderful doctor, of all the doctors I have been to for myself and also taking elderly parents to for many years he goes above and beyond . I would say the difference is that he genuinely cares.
Apr 10, 2015
Good.
Apr 8, 2015
Dr. is so busy anymore and hours cut. It is very hard to get in touch with him. But I have gone to him for a long time and would not want to change dr.'s. I would not do this because Dr. Huntington is a very good, caring dr.
Apr 3, 2015
Dr. Huntington by far is the best Dr. I have ever had. Listens to what I have to say and works with me if I have any concerns. Always takes the time to get back to me in a timely manner with results or to answer any questions I might have about anything.
Apr 1, 2015
Waiting in the exam room for the doctor to come takes a while like 10 mins.-12 mins.
March 30, 2015

March 13, 2015
at no time did he seemed rushed like most doctors do. he sat back listened to everything I had to say and then he would comment. he was very easy to talk with & if he didn't understand what I was explaining he asked he didn't just nod his head & move on
March 9, 2015
Dr. Huntington always takes the time to make sure he covers everything and explain any issues thoroughly, it's much appreciated!

"Best dr. visit." I have all the confidence in Dr. Huntington's care and he makes you feel that he has time to listen to all your issues and gives you a GOOD FEELING ABOUT HAVING GEISINGER. Dr. Huntington. Very.
March 6, 2015
I think Dr. Huntington is an amazing diagnostician being in "family practice". I went to the ER with complete left hip imobility, they had no idea what was wrong with me. I saw Dr. Huntington a few days ago, he diasnosed me in minutes and gave me an injection that immediately relieved the pain and immobility. I saw him for a rash or bites, he diagnoses it as Shingles. He is attentive and direct to the point clinically, which I admire.
March 5, 2015
I liked that was a intern with dr.
Feb 23, 2015
