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.

Dr. McElroy and his staff provided an excellent experience during my injection. Prior to my injection Dr. McElroy spent time with me and my family discussing the different injection options available to me, making sure that I was comfortable with my informed decision prior to him performing the injection. I found this to be very reassuring and thoughtful of Dr. McElroy. He took the time to answer any and all questions that myself and my family member had regarding the injection prior to and during the procedure. I would highly recommend Dr. McElroy and his staff, he is an excellent health care provider that cares about the health and well-being of his patients.

Pain in R knee - physician ordered an X-Ray done during that appt. an MRI was performed 4/26 - the office called the next day with the results I was given an appt. that morning to reserve an injection as we have done in the past - If no relief Dr. suggests see ortho Dr. for discussion. Dr. McElroy gave me an appointment on 4/27 AM even though he had to leave at 11:30 to go to Selengrove.

Dr. McElroy is WONDERFUL. He is kind, smart, and treats me like an athlete - he understands that I can't just be "okay," I need to be functional enough to train and complete. And he _____ about taking care of me as he would be a college athlete. I appreciate that.
Apr 4
Was very thorough, explained so I would unstand. Courteous,caring. But knew his job very well.
March 28
I am extremely satisfied with the Ortho care I have received from Dr. McElroy.
March 21
Dr. McElroy was in a hurry or was intimidated that I had done some research and was well educated on my condition. He gave me a very expensive orthotic arch brace and was selling insoles (which I already had). He was very quick and did not explain things well. He seemed upset that I was asking questions and making suggestions for how to improve my pain. I read my notes in my geisinger and he charted things we didn't even talk about. My husband accompanied me to this appointment and he was equally disgusted by this appointment.

What a nice guy!
Feb 1
The doctor, students, technicians all worked very well together in determining the care needed and describing it in terms my child understood and allowing time for questions. We will definitely recommend this office/clinic to anyone who we cross paths with requiring this specialty of care.

I would highly recommend him. He was very nice and friendly.
Dec 29, 2015
One of the reasons why I enjoy Dr. McElroy so much is that I can use medical terminology with him and he isn't condescending at all. He respects my intelligence.

Nov 2, 2015
Not the physician's fault, something failed in the process leading to get into the exam room. As a Geisinger employee, this Patient Experience was very disheartening. I placed a message on My Geisinger and no one ever got back to me.
