Dr. Huntington is an excellent doctor. He goes above and beyond. Always takes his time and listens to complaints. He doesnt rush you out of office and he takes your concerns seriously.
Dec 13, 2016
was not simpathetic to the fact that for six weeks I had been sending him emails thru mygeisinger.com and had no response what so ever. was told the phone lines where messed up. if this was the case why was there not a message on web site?
Dec 12, 2016
I love Dr Huntington but it's very difficult to get an appointment with him even though I have been a patient for many years. it seems I always have to see a resident or PA and for some issues I need Dr Huntingtons experience and familiarity with my issues.
Dec 8, 2016
I've had all three on recent appointments.
Nov 28, 2016
I personally have a very high respect for Doctor Huntington.
Nov 23, 2016
Dr. Huntington is a knowledgeable MD. always courteous and very thorough. He was accompanied by a medical resident and as he went over each of my health concerns he explained to the resident the cause, signs and treatment of each one, also other conditions that may be associated with each issue. I am very pleased with him each time I see him, he listens and answers any questions. I feel at ease after seeing him.

very confident and comfortable in my dealings with Dr. Huntington
Sep 2, 2016
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
Sep 1, 2016
Dr. Huntington is very concerned about your problems. He is very easy to talk to - and very knowledgeable. The best we have ever had.
Aug 30, 2016
so far he seems like a good Dr.
Aug 29, 2016
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
Aug 25, 2016
Dr Huntington is great, Like I said before if it wasn't for Dr Huntington I wouldn't give you 2 cents for that clinic
Aug 17, 2016

Aug 16, 2016

Aug 9, 2016
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, 2016
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.
Jul 25, 2016
"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?

We're on a timer it seems. Again....way too overbooked. We're people with health concerns......don't treat us like bers on a spread sheet. Like turning tables at a restaurant!!
Jul 7, 2016
Caring, kind, courteous, professional.
June 29, 2016
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, 2016
Dr. Huntington is the best
June 28, 2016
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.
June 20, 2016
I THINK HE IS A VERY GOOD DOCTOR.
May 25, 2016
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, 2016
Dr. Huntington is simply outstanding. You are very fortunate to have him on your staff.

May 6, 2016
The Dr. was very friendly and showed concern for my health. He listened to my requests and He gave a thorough examination.
Apr 27, 2016
I would recommend Dr. Huntington to someone else because he is a very good doctor who, cares about his patients and helps in any he can. He is very _____ in whatever is wrong.

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, 2016
Dr Huntington is excellent. He was very thorough and pin pointed my problem. I recommend him highly.
Apr 13, 2016
#6. No follow-up care - Very pleased w/Dr. Huntington! -
Apr 9, 2016
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, 2016
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.

March 9, 2016
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, 2016
Dr. Huntington is one of your best doctors, concerned , answered questions.. quieted fears... he is the best !!!
March 3, 2016
I have already recommended Dr. Huntington to friends.
Feb 29, 2016
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.
