Dr Kephart told me he is retiring. I am extremely unhappy to learn there are no plans to have a replacement dermatologist at the Geisinger Lewistown facility. It is not an easy trip for me to have to travel to Harrisburg, State College, or Danville. Please rethink this decision.

can't really recommend someone who is retiring in the spring. and not having someone to take over their spot.
Aug 31
such a shame that he is retiring!

I would highly recommend dr kephart, or dr Stephanie Dunk.

I was impressed by doctor kepharts ability to do two health care providers work load. if Geisinger is going to serve all these communities they need to add more facilities and health care professionals.
Aug 22
I am saddened that Dr. Kephart is going to retire and is not going to be replaced in Lewistown. He is a fantastic physician, and he will be sorely missed.
Aug 17
No treatment or follow up care
Aug 15
He is too busy. I am very thankful they squeezed me in last minute, but the dr. is rushed. Please consider getting an additional dermatologist for this Geisinger. You just can't get in to see him easily. I am considering State College or Harrisburg for health care. The clinic misdiagnosed me - there is no substitute for a specialist.

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 was very informative and I did not feel he was rushed or in a hurry to finish seeing me as a patient
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!
Jul 11
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.
Jul 6
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!

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.

I already recommended Dr. Kephart. #5. No meds.

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.

Dr. Kephart is an excellent physician.

The man is wonderful!

I liked the personal call from Dr. Kephant to my home or call with the test results -
Oct 29, 2015
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.
