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. Bolock is a great doctor for me and my family. She has been my primary care before she had any children of her own, so I can say I watched her children grow up and finish college. She is a jewel.

Care Providers are given 15 minutes per person per visit. if it's something easy like checking If a cold is a cold or flu or virus; 15 minutes is fine. I have the following conditions: diabetes, cardiac arrest, pacemaker, hypertension, hypothyroid, overactive bladder, severe depression, diabetic neuropathy, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, high cholesterol and recently chronic stage III kidney disease. I have my hands full just juggling doctor appointments! I need a primary care provider who can and is willing to manage and coordinate care. IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO DO EVERYTHING IN 15 MINUTES.

Instructions how to take the medication were not sent to pharmacy correctly - according to then. I follow as it was on jar. Consequence I got so sick.
Jul 22, 2016
dr Bolock is wonderful. only reason I am still with you and not all St Luke's
Jul 12, 2016
Dr Sylvia prescribed me a asthma medication. All fine and dandy, if only I had asthma. No breathing, bronchial or lung issues what so ever. I noted this upon reading the prescription pamphlet which comes with medication. She has done this before but I forget to ask her what it is/and for at the visits. I just decline to take it. however I do use a cpap machine for Mild sleep apnea. strange.

Dr Bolock is an excellent doctor. I feel safe.

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.
Apr 7, 2016
Dr. is always very focused, concerned, and helpful--she takes time to listen.
