very good

Doctor was sick. While I appreciate them trying to maintain existing appointments, probably not at their best to see patients when they are ill.

If not for Dr. Bolock I would have left Geisinger LONG ago. The way the administration skimps on what they consider to be less important things like proper staffing of the reception area. Over booking of appointments, and lack of adequate access to the Primary Care Provider. A facility like yours is supposed to have providing CARE as their first priority. The administration of this facility (not the people there) promote the feeling that how much you can make and how much you can maximize profit are the governing principals and patient Care is an afterthought. If you could CLONE Dr. Bolock GO FOR IT!!! Short of that use her as a benchmark by which you measure every other Doctor you intend to hire.

Dr. is always very focused, concerned, and helpful--she takes time to listen.

For the follow-up care, I wasnt sure if I was to contact my PCM or Dr. Bolock for the results; however, this was minor to me and I really appreciate how everything transpired.

I want to know why a third party company is taking surveys for Geisinger?? I stopped trying to communicate with my doctor long ago!! My doctor takes the time an treats me with respect always. Unlike the rest of the playtime people!! My questions are always answered by my doctor!! I refuse to interact with anyone there except my doctor!! Or doctor's about my health, no one has the right to make decisions about my health except my Doctor!!!
Jan 13
Since I agreed to see her as Dr. Brown was out, she seemed put out. I found her to be unfriendly and a person of few words.
Jan 11
dr. bolock is a very caring doctor. she definitely takes the time to explain everything to me, never rushes me out

Love Dr Bolock

The only thing that would keep us from recommending Dr. Bollock is the attitude of your front office staff during check-in and check-out. It is a horrible first impression you give at the Mt. Pocono site. Dr. Bollock and her nurses are wonderful care providers. Just wish they were back at Mountainhome site where the front office service matched the care provider service.
Dec 16, 2015
I like my Dr. I picked a woman, because I felt she would relate to my needs better than a male Dr. and she's everything I have hoped for.
Dec 8, 2015
The problem I have is that dr.'s hands are tied as limiting exams that I think should be done. PSA, digital rectal exam & genital check not done any more. At my age of seventy & Dad having prostate "C" they should be.
Dec 8, 2015
Dr. Bolock is the best!
Dec 7, 2015
Dr. Bolock was excellent as always
Nov 24, 2015
Dr. Bolock is a great physician who shows obvious concern and respect for her patients.
Nov 18, 2015
I have followed Dr. Bolock since the early 90's when she was at Shawnee. I would not want another MD
Nov 17, 2015
Care provider never checked me out for my symptoms or pains that I was having. All she did was assume what the issue was and told me to go to the ER and get checked out. She told me that she had no equipment to do any testing on me to see what was causing my symptoms and that is why she sent me to the ER. She got me very upset to where I started to cry in the exam room and then she still showed no compassion and sent me on my way
Nov 16, 2015
Nurse and Doctor make you feel like family!

Dr. bolock was genuinely sincere and did not judge me at all. Many doctors or Nurse practitioners don't have the best bedside manner. I felt as if she treated me with respect & her sense of humor made the whole process a lot smoother.
Nov 4, 2015
Clear - not in hurry.
Nov 2, 2015
Dr. Bolock is a very warm, caring, and understanding doctor. Very easy to talk to.
Oct 27, 2015
Excellent doctor! Great office visit. I appreciated that my doctor was proactive and over the past seven months helped me to turn my life around for the better - as I have lost forty pounds - and feeling great now. I am very grateful for my doctors insights and help along the way as I am on an excellent healthy food plan and am at goal weight now. Wonderful visit with my doctor and am grateful for her as well as for the preventive care approach with Geisinger. Thank you,...

Dr. Bolock has been mine & my families primary care physician as far back as i can remember. I have complete confidence in her ability to take care of me and my family. I have always recommended her highly whenever the opportunity came up.
Oct 6, 2015
Dr Bolock is very professional. I trust her.
Oct 2, 2015
Always listens and doesn't rush.

Sep 24, 2015
I always recommend Sylvia Bolock to friends and family.
Sep 17, 2015
I have recommended Dr. Bolock to many people, but always with the caveat of having to wait forever to speak to someone in order to schedule an appointment.

Dr Bollock is one of the best Dr's I have been to. she is professional and very caring.
Aug 3, 2015
Unfortunately the tight scheduling of the physician makes waiting a while a certainty. That being said, never felt rushed by the physician (nurse yes)

*Dr. Bolock is a wonderful physician but since she has joined the Geisinger Group, I have nothing but problems getting appts., being left sitting when I arrive - last time I sat for an hour and could get no assistance from the nursing staff. Hate to say it but I will be switching health care providers. Its a shame your system is so poor.
Jul 1, 2015
wonderful doctor visit
June 30, 2015
felt very comfortable talking to her unlike my last provider
June 17, 2015
Dr. Bolock is an ideal family physician. She knows me well, follows up on all my concerns and questions.
June 9, 2015
Dr Bolock is an amazing doctor. She has vast knowledge about her chosen field (G.P.), shares information in layperson's language, and truly is caring and compassionate about her patients.
June 2, 2015
Based on what I have seen within the last few years my confidence in Dr. Bolock is greatly diminishing. I myself will be seeking a different primary care doctor and will be looking into ones for my children as well. I am less than pleased with how she handles or addresses or doesn't address matters.
