All Good
March 30
April is awesome, very knowledgeable, compassionate, and just an all around professional. She is one of the main reasons that my family and I go to this Geisinger facility.
March 25
April has been my care provider for many years. She has been with me through good and some bad times. I would be lost with out her. She is very caring and listens to all my problems and questions. She is awesome.
March 16
April forgot to message me about my medicine. I had to message back. I drove 35 mins to pick up a script that wasn't filled out properly and I couldn't get filled. Now, I am waiting for a return message and will have to make the trip all over again. I am not happy.

April is great - I recommend her and the other providers at scenery park to any of my friends who are looking for doctors.

Already have.
Feb 29
I think the long wait is due to the fact this person cares about people & we are not use to that in this modern day society ... everyone is fast moving therefore when we have a wait period we become frustrated.
Feb 23
She could not find anything wrong but I still have a jabbing in the groin from time to time.
Feb 19
I love April she is very good and very nice. I like coming in to have her check on me when I have a health problem. An assest to you company.

April Rine is fantastic, my family and I came to Geisinger because she was the PA where we went before and when she left, we followed her to Geisinger, she is the best!
Feb 15
My provider that day, April Rine, did a great job as always. She is well-informed, caring and I have every confidence in her ability to provide care and information for me.
Feb 10
April Rine is amazing. She is patient, smart, and has diagnosed conditions in our family that others did not even notice. I know many people who feel the same way. I will not go to anyone else unless she retires, which will be a sad day. She is thorough and takes the time to really listen and think about what might be the problem

Excellent...
Feb 5
April Rine is the best. She makes sure you understand everything before she leaves.
Feb 3
April Rine is outstanding in general and gave me excellent treatment on this visit.
Feb 2
April is one of the kindest people I know. She is the only doctor that actually listens to me. And she doesn't think just because I have anxiety that that is ALWAYS THE PROBLEM she actually cares about me and what's going on she is fantastic
Jan 27
I like April Rine and have seen her several times, however, this time she prescribed antibiotics for what she characterized as a low grade infection without knowing cause or location of the underlying problem. She also misrepresented the dosage of antibiotic in order, I believe to convince me to accept taking them. She also ignored my emailed question. This tends to lower my trust in Geisinger's medical care.
Jan 26
April Rhine PAC is very caring goes the extra mile to take care of everything that is going on, she really shows she cares about her patients!

None.
Dec 30, 2015
Although I was to provide a list of supplements I take, there was no discussion of them as such. Since I do not take any prescription medication, this was somewhat of a disappointment. She just went over the list but did not comment or recommend.
Dec 18, 2015
April always takes time to explain everything to me, what my options are, and what I should expect for the outcome. She's great and I always recommend her to everyone. She actually seems to care about my health more than some of the doctors that I've seen at that clinic
Dec 18, 2015
I had doubts about seeing April Rine but she was the only physican available who could see me that day. This is the second time she has misdiagnosed a problem because I feel she guesses without really checking all the reported symptoms. She is friendly but so are many other doctors. I lack confidence in her medical knowledge.
Dec 9, 2015
I received excellent care by April, and the complete staff. They were interested in the health issue I had, and advised me of things I could do to correct the issue.
Dec 7, 2015
April is great!

Oct 14, 2015
Love April Rine! - she has been a great asset to the community!
Oct 8, 2015
I felt that April Rhine could have been more reassuring and comforting about my sensitive health concern. I wasn't expecting her to pretend that everything was going to be fine but she seemed to be lacking in terms of bedside manner.
Sep 30, 2015
Very personable, concerned.
Sep 29, 2015
There was a delay noted on the board when I arrived, but was still able to see April in a timely manner. And was pleased that she took so much time with me, and made my visit pleasurable.
Sep 24, 2015
she's very friendly with bedside manners
Sep 18, 2015
A review of the side effects of the medication I was prescribed would have been helpful
Sep 18, 2015
I love April. She is always very understanding of any of my conditions. This I had a physical but wanted her to check out something on my body. She is understanding about my personal life and is never judgmental. When I do get bronchitis I hate to go to anyone else because she understands that I have had this condition so many times that I know when it isn't just a common cold. Best doctor ever!
Sep 17, 2015
always wonderful
Sep 11, 2015
This was the first time that I was seen by April Rine. Her reputation for care is excellent, and I can now say first-hand that I see why. She is knowledgeable, attentive, compassionate, and thorough. I feel very fortunate to have been under her care.
Sep 11, 2015
April Rine, PA is outstanding!

*April Rine is the very best. I always feel she cares and I trust her completely.
Aug 24, 2015
The doctor was providing care and follow up for my regular primary care provider...she was thorough, thoughtful and conscientious with the paperwork that I required and she gave me confidence that my situation was handled professionally.
Aug 24, 2015
She was to FOLLOW UP w/refills and with a possible referral to Geis. dr. specializing in hormone treatment etc. (My concerns re pap since I've had _____, pap virus, etc.) and NEVER DID.
Aug 6, 2015
In my opinion *April Rine is the best, most caring doctor I have ever been too.

She is a very caring person who spends whatever time necessary. I have recommended her to others many times over the years.
Jul 15, 2015
I've seen April for many years, and she has always been friendly and courtesy. I feel very comfortable April. She listens carefully to me as I explain the reason I'm there to see her. She makes me feel as if I'm not only her patient but a friend, someone she really cares about. I'm sure she is this way with all her patients, I say this because my daughter also see her and as mentioned the same about her.
Jul 10, 2015
April Rine has been my doctor for many years and she is top-notch in my opinion.
Jul 10, 2015
April is a compassionate provider who is competent and knowledgeable . I always feel well taken care of when I see her, plus she is just so pleasant.
Jul 8, 2015
the medication prescribed to me for treatment did not help my illness at all. I had to call back twice for different medication. calling back for a new prescription took all day, going back a forth. when my prescription was finally sent to the pharmacy, no one told me. I called the pharmacy at night to ask.
Jul 2, 2015
April is friendly caring and professional. a very nice blend.
June 23, 2015
I love April{illegible or inappropriate content}{illegible or inappropriate content}.I have never felt so comfortable with a doctor as I do with her!
June 18, 2015
Good experience
June 17, 2015
My provider never discussed one of the diagnosis codes on my chart with me. I didn't even know it was on there until after I got home and took a better look at my checkout papers. If a provider is going to diagnose a patient with something, he/she needs to go over that with the patient.
June 5, 2015
She has always been knowledgeable and caring. I would recommend her highly to anyone.
May 26, 2015
Thanks! My finger is better now.
May 26, 2015
I have the utmost confidence in April Rine's care and expertise. I am extremely satisfied with her as my care giver.
May 26, 2015
Did blood test received results but means nothing. Didn't understand. I think people need follow up call from doctor to explain results when doctors receive these.
May 14, 2015
April is wonderful!. She has always been right-on with her diagnosis and always prescribes the correct drug that will work for me. She's always friendly and thoroughly answers any questions I may have. I wouldn't go to anyone else for my health needs! I have recommended her to my friends!
