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.

I felt as though the Dr didn't believe my symptoms and that there wasn't a problem... the things he told me to fix my weight gain I have done without any loss. He told me that I could exercise and watch my diet and still not lose weight... how is 220 lbs an acceptable weight? I should be 150 lbs based on height... I don't understand the thinking and rationale that he gave to me

I had post-operative complications. The physicians and nursing staff did not listen to my chest or abdomen while I was an in-patient, in spite of my complaints about chest pain with a deep breath. The very first morning that I was home after discharge, I had to call the ambulance to go to the local ER!! I had atelectasis, pneumonia and pleural effusion!!!

Dr. Petrick is the absolute best in his field. He has helped me immensely and still continues to try and find a solution to my problems.

The majority of time Dr. Thomas Shin was the care provider, although Dr. Petrick performed my surgery. Dr. Shin was very thorough and informative.
