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.

This Dr.Rajesh Govindasamy needs to worry more about his patients than when he has seen all his patients. The man was very rude and discussed why and how I got an appt. with him and how many patients he had to see because he had things to do (to the nurse) I was never so insulted as a patient to a Dr. as I had been that day and I relayed that message to the desk nurse. And on top of that I had to pay a $40 copay to be insulted and non-informed, it was totally a worthless visit and would not do it again. He told me to see him in 3 mnths. Bah- humbug.

Dr. Govindasamy has been an amazing, caring provider since my first meeting with him. I am sure that the Transplant Clinic is a very stressful department to work in given the nature of the illnesses that people there are experiencing. Yet he makes you feel like you are his most important patient in the time he is with you. His compassion and concern feels genuine. He made an incredibly difficult and frightening situation as easy as possible and continues to make me feel comfortable at each visit.

I was a patient of Dr Difillipo who was very compassionate and spent any amount of time I needed. This visit didn't even come close!

Dr. Govindasamy is very friendly and you can tell he cares for his patients. He does get a little technical in his explanations sometimes, but that's fine. He is willing to answer questions or go back and simplify as I needed.

Dr suggested a change in medication to be made by my family physician & said he would contact my doctor concerning this. He DID NOT follow up on this. I spoke to my doctor about the medication change & he did switch the medication as suggested but told me he was NOT contacted by Dr Govindasami about the matter. I am very disappointed in the lack of follow up on something as important as a medication change recommendation by Dr Govindasami!!!
