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 40 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.

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.

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.

Dr. Bolock is the best!

Dr. Bolock was excellent as always

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

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.

Clear - not in hurry.
Nov 2, 2015
Dr. Bolock is a very warm, caring, and understanding doctor. Very easy to talk to.

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.

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.
May 21, 2015
Dr. Bolock is the best. I have 100% trust in her.
May 18, 2015
I only wish my geisinger gynecologist in wilksbarre was as good about trying to figure out what's causing symptoms and taking an active role in finding a treat them .
May 12, 2015
Only gave a fair on recommending the care provider because of the wait time . You can't get appointments when you want~
Apr 30, 2015
Always wonderful experience with Dr. Bolock, I've been with her many years.
Apr 13, 2015
I like Doctor Sylvia Bolock , I would have liked my appointment with her to have lasted longer .
Apr 7, 2015
Dr. Bollock is always extremely caring. She never makes me feel rushed; she takes the time to truly listen. She is a very good doctor with a wonderful rapport with her patients.
March 19, 2015
She's one of the best doctors I've had in a really long time.
March 17, 2015
If I did not like and trust Dr. Bolock as much as I do , I would probably look elsewhere for a new doctor.
March 12, 2015
Dr. Bolock is not my child's regular doctor, but she showed just as much concern as she would her regulars.
March 3, 2015
She's fantastic - friendly kind, willing to listen. Comes from Mt. home office.
