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.

No medication, skipped question 5. My physician asked me to set up an appointment with him in approximately one month. When I attempted to setup the appointment at the front desk, the receptionist attempted to push me off an a PA multiple times. When I told them that the doctor specifically said to make the appointment with them, the receptionist still attempted to push me off on a PA. Rather than checking with the doctor. Finally, they checked with the doctors nurse and gave me an appointment with him.
