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.

I very much liked the provider. He actually explained things to me in detail that had not been explained in the past. He is very knowledgeable/concerned/and thorough.

All the doctor did was listen 2 times on front of chest 2 times on back up at my shoulders. He was like afraid to touch my body & yes I was clean & had clean clothing on. And no he did not wash his hands.

Waited 20+ minutes in exam room - Nurse kept coming back to see if we'd been seen yet. Obvious we where last/or next to last appt. for the day. Doctor said about 5 words - left saying see you later, follow up with G.P. We felt like why did we even bother to take the feel & our time for this visit.

I consider Dr. Govindasamy to be one of the BEST Geisinger doctors.
