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 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.

I get tired of being a test subject for observation by students. Had 2 students in room, which is small room.

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.

Approval of the procedure was gotten from the scheduled doctor and then performed by an intern with another intern observing. Intern did a great job.
Jan 6
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.

Good

Dr. McElroy is one of the nicest people I know and very caring.
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.

Always. Good

I really like Dr McElroy's ability to focus on me. It's obvious that he's busy and has an amazingly full schedule, yet he doesn't rush me, doesn't seem impatient. Takes the time to fully answer my questions and seems fully focused on me.
Sep 2, 2015
I waited in the examining room for at least 25 minutes, with no word as to why Dr. McE. was late. He finally came breezing in and offered no apology or explanation for his tardiness. His attitude was all business, no wasted words; his demeanor was not especially friendly.
Aug 28, 2015
Dr McElroys assistant is a very pleasent person and a joy to talk to. (Can't remember his name though).
Aug 24, 2015
As already described on a previous comment, I feel as though I wasted my time and money for the care provider to tell me to stretch.
Aug 20, 2015
Very pleased with physician.
Aug 19, 2015
It's frustrating to take the time to come to an appointment, spend all of 5 minutes with the doctor and then cough up a $30 copay, particularly given that this is the third time I've done so for this issue and it seems as though at least one of those visits could have been a simple phone call.
Aug 6, 2015
Dr. McElroy needs no recommendations, appointments with him are highly prized. He knows I graduated pre-med, so he gives me the full detail of what he sees, and includes me in the discussion about treatment. He and his staff are off the charts excellent. What they can do with an ultrasound in the office is amazing. What they can detect is stunning! They are outstanding in orthopedics, the best!
Aug 5, 2015
Dr McElroy and Brian were superb with the treatment/injections I received. Dr McElroy is the best!!!
Jul 31, 2015
Dr. McElroy was very professional and thorough. I was impressed with his compentency.
Jul 30, 2015
Physician went immediately to knee replacement option instead of explaining why this would be best option
Jul 27, 2015
After we asked for a consult with an ortho resident our Doctor dismissed our concerns and did not see us the rest of our time in the ED. Nursing Team Coordinator is the person who did our discharge.
