There is no publicly available rating for this care provider for one or more of the following reasons:
  1. He or she does not see patients in the outpatient clinic setting.
  2. He or she sees patients, but has not yet received the minimum number of Patient Satisfaction Reviews. To be eligible for display, we require a minimum of 30 surveys. This ensures that the rating is accurate and statistically reliable.
  3. He or she is a community provider, not a Geisinger-employed provider. Community providers tend to see patients in their own private outpatient practices, which we do not survey.

I cannot imagine a better PCP than Dr. Pagnotto. I have a very complex set of conditions and he has been with me on the journey for over a decade. No other PCP has been so willing to work with me, problem solve, rejoice in my improvements, acknowledge when something is outside of his scope of knowledge, etc. Dr. Pagnotto is an excellent provider.

Dr. Pagnotto was very interested in my welfare, apologized about lack of x-ray services, offered to send me to Careworks or Mount Nittany for a more timely x-ray instead of having me come back later in the day.

The doctor is animated and pleasant but doesn't seem to go into depth regarding chronic conditions: i.e. Hypo-thyroidism and high blood pressure. He did ask me if I exercise but did not connect activity to weight gain.

Dr Pagnotto is one of the best doctors I have ever had, I would recommend him to anyone and have! The only down fall sometimes is his availablilty, but I am sure this is due to him being so good at his job.
