  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.

I have enjoyed having Dr. Chappen as my PCP. Absolutely nothing but good to say about her.
Sep 7
Dr. Chappen was wonderful - it was the first time I had been to see her, and even though my concerns may have been silly (muscle spasm in back - first time having one), she took them all seriously, was very friendly, and made sure I understood my follow up care
Aug 29
Dr. Chappen never rushes through my appointments. She is a great listener and I always feel she understands me. She explains diagnosis and treatment plan thoroughly.
Aug 26
I will hate to see Dr. Chappen leave she was an excellent dr. for me. I only hope her replacement will be just as caring and on top of medical situations. She is will be missed by her patients and Geisinger.
Aug 24
I have put my trust in Dr. Chappen for decades. I trust her opinion when I am making difficult decisions, and she has always been there for me and my family.
Aug 22
Dr. Chappen has always been wonderful. She is why I stay with Geisinger.
Aug 22
I have always enthusiastically recommended Dr. Chappen to friends and acquaintances. My only hesitation at this time is that she does not expect to be continuing in the same capacity after April 2017. She is an excellent caregiver and I will miss her tremendously.

Dr Chappen was very consider and concerned about my problems and answered all questions
Aug 12
I was pretty sure I was my appt was for a diabetic check, but I ended up with a full general physical. I was a bit confused by this and just assumed I was mistaken. I questioned the nurse, but she said the Dr. said it was for a full physical. On a separate note . . . When I was first diagnosed with diabetes I was told I needed to have my A1C checked every 3 months, but I'm currently only having it checked once every six months when I have either a diabetic check or my annual physical. I haven't questioned this, as I probably should.

As an elderly patient, I feel that 6 month visits are too far apart. It should go back to a minimum of 4 months.

Dr. Chappen is always very courteous and caring.

Yes! Excellent.

I have enormous trust in Dr. Chappen & especially appreciate her attention to prevention/wellness. I now bring my 89 year old mother to her and have recommended her to friends.
May 31
don't have high degree of confidence in her expertise. Feel I have to do a lot of background research myself in order to optimize treatment choices/outcomes. Her examinations of relevant data could be more thorough.
May 26
Dr. Chappen is ALWAYS very prompt with taking appointments on time and I really appreciate this. She should "train" others.
May 13

Dr. Chappen is terrific! Answers all questions in terms that are easily understood.

Dr Chappen is a good listener, took her time & I would recommmend her to anyone.
March 31
My wife goes to her as well, she is well liked by both of us as our family dr.
March 31
she took the time to go over my medication any concerns or issues I had, she also explained to me why some of my medications needed to be increased
March 18
Suggested that I see an ENT physician behind EV Hospital and questioned why there when I always go over to the Geisinger Hospital in Danville. Made no sense to me.
March 4
While the provider was respectful of us, I did not feel I was listened to. I asked about something I would have liked and thought reasonable to consider for follow up (referral to a specialist), but was told that is not the problem. Time spent with us was about 5 minutes if that and assessment was minimal at best. Again, provider was not disrespectful, but I feel the diagnosis was incorrect, although visit was for a minor issue, and requests for further evaluation were denied.
Feb 26
I am always appreciative of alternative practices, such as treatment for cholesterol (OTC holistic tablets, etc.).
Feb 17
Dr. Chappen is very professional, patient, knowledgeable. She listens, and is very caring. I am so happy that she is my doctor.
Jan 27
Dr. Chappen was, as usual, kind, gentle, and knowledgable. She always puts me at ease.
Jan 22
Dr. Chappen did great. Within the past 2 years I feel when we visit the Lewisburg clinic the doctor's are so rushed that they are in and out of the room and hardly have time for the patient. I did not feel that way at all today. She also was proactive and getting my child medication since his sister and I were both strep positive. Appreciated the fact that she made sure to get him back to feeling better quickly.
Jan 18
Only one negative example of all of my time with this doctor keeps this review from being perfect.
Jan 18
Dr. Chappen could not have been more helpful and understanding of my problem and concerns. She is an asset to Geisinger.
Jan 15
Dr. Chappen is very knowledgeable. She explains things in terms that are easy to understand. She is terrific!!
Jan 15
It felt rushed. In general I didn't feel like there was much of an attempt made to get to know me as a person - it felt like there were a series of boxes to check.
Jan 14
Very reassuring and knowledgeable. Put me at ease.
Dec 2, 2015
Once again I was impressed with the courtesy and knowledge of all your staff. I read a lot of medical studies and articles on the net. I am always impressed with Dr. Chappens ability to clear any misconceptions that I may get in my reading. It seems that I always leave feeling better after my talk with her.
Dec 1, 2015
Dr. Chappen is incredibly thorough, professional, well-informed, and friendly. I completely trust her judgment and have recommended her to friends in search of a good doctor.

My mom has been taking me to GMC sine I was 1 year old.
Nov 13, 2015
Even though I was feeling horrendous, I felt that Dr. Chappen and her nurse that day provided a comforting and proved to be a great experience.
Nov 6, 2015
good experience
Oct 23, 2015
Geisinger doesn't allow much time per patient
Oct 23, 2015
Dr. Chappen has always been extremely thorough in her explanations re: conditions and/or treatment related to specific conditions, etc. She also has knowledge of alternative treatments, which is very helpful considering my allergies to medications.
Oct 22, 2015
question 7 is stupid and nonsensical. question 10: the doctor is on her way out
Oct 13, 2015
Dr. Margaret Chappen is one of the best physicians I have met. She knows and she listens to her patients.
