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.

Really like Dr. Kephart he will be retiring within 6 months.
Aug 1
Unless a skin issue is definitely cancer, he could not address this because of insurance limitations.

DR KEPHART HAS BEEN AN EXCELLENT DOCTOR
Jul 14
Dr. Kephart was very impersonable and had a condescending demeanor, although he explained what I had so that I could understand it.
Jul 11
I had a super experience with Dr Kephart and his staff! Please don't let him retire!

Dr. Kephart seemed to be in a rush. Left feeling like I had gone through an assembly line. The doctor was very flippant a certain huge mole behind my ear and felt I had to pressure him to freeze it off. Having precancerous skin problems previously, felt the doctor didn't really care or want to treat or even examine the concerned spots.

He seemed out to lunch, I see him every year, he didn't know who I was, asked if I was one of Stephanie's patients. Something is not right with him.

Dr. Kephart has always been very friendly. He also has been very helpful as regards my skin problem. I enjoy my visits to his office - even considering the treatment of skin problems!

The guy seems goofy but very down to earth and knows what we were to do for the issue of being there

Always would recommend Dr. Kephart.

I saw Dr. Kephart for acne treatment. Now, less than a month after my appointment, I have the clearest skin I've had in 20 years--my entire adult life.

Dr Kephart is a very knowledgeable and caring person.

He was very honest with me and said he didn't know what the lump on my hand was and that it would be sent away for analysis. He got the results and actually called me himself at 1:00 AM! to let me know that it was shingles. He wanted me to get medication as soon as possible.

Good experience

Did not receive a complete diagnosis as to what is causing rash because biopsy was inconclusive as to its cause. Still on medication, but rash has not gone away.
Dec 29, 2015
I felt as if I was given a blanket diagnosis - "we usually do this..." without much regard to what I felt were significant environmental influences. The dr. interrupted my speaking & began examining/touching my face w/no warning. He also examined my upper chest with no warming - I prefer to be asked before being touched. When asked about the OTC products I could use, dr. was very vague & left me w/more questions, but I didn't feel comfortable, discuss alternate treatments.

He is an exceptional Doctor. He was able to recommend a product to use on my scalp that is the first thing that has worked in decades.
Oct 27, 2015
Even though I was there for a different problem. Dr. Kophart gave me new information on my psoriasis which proved to be helpful to me.
Oct 12, 2015
very good

I felt Dr. Kephart didn't read my chart before he met with me. He thought a mark on my leg was a bruise, but it is a scar from him removing a suspicious spot a year ago. He didn't remember the marks on my stomach were from an infection he treated me for in the last year. Not happy with this appointment at all!
