  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.

He is an excellent doctor and I hope Geisinger doesn't lose him like they do other good doctors.

This is the 2nd time that Dr McElroy has taken care of the pain in my knees d/t a torn meniscus. I think he is a great doctor and I am thankful to be able to get relief from the pain with his help.
Feb 24
The staff were all very nice and explained everything well. We were only in the office for 15 minutes and the distance that we had to drive to arrive at the facility was about an hour. I don't think that the visit was worth the drive. Dr. McElroy was really nice, but he didn't tell us any more information than the PA in the Lock Haven Office.
Feb 24
The Dr. told me the the surgeon's office would call for follow-up care, but after two weeks, still no call. That is not THIS doctor's fault.
Feb 21
Took his time. Great Doctor

Dr. McElroy and staff are always very professional and explain everything to you before doing exam/procedure.

Dr McElroy was professional yet very approachable. He addressed my injury and concerns as an athlete, not just another patient. As a cross country coach; I'm looking forward to working together to get back to running ASAP.

Dr. McElroy is a wonderful doctor. I have been going to him for years, and he is always courteous, kind and efficient. And I hardly ever get a bruise spot when he gives me a shot or extract fluid from my rotator cuff.

Dr. McElroy is terrific -- listens, explains, is concerned. I also greatly appreciate his team of health professionals. They work well with him and with each other. It's clear they enjoy working with him and they respect his work.

Dec 22, 2016
I informed the office I'd need more on final visit he spent maybe 1 1/2 minutes with me, declared he couldn't help me and neither could ortho. surgeon and told me to find another dr. I asked for meds until reestablished and was told because he had given a total of 60 in previous months it would be flagged.Provider initially was very friendly and seemed to care about my pain and medical issues. I followed the instructions implicitly but had to reschedule one appointment due to vehicle breakdown. I wasn't yet out of meds but would be before I could be seen.

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.
Apr 7, 2016
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, 2016
Was very thorough, explained so I would unstand. Courteous,caring. But knew his job very well.
