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.

My confidence in Dr. M. (and Lindsay) couldn't be higher. In addition to being an excellent diagnostician and listener, she knows and respects my desire to be own my primary care-taker.

They are good. However, they may not be able to explain the problems of health with common - words, they use only the specialty - words, and they do not enough time for every time our visiting.

During office visit, provider stated she would send BP Rx renewal to my mail service pharmacy but wanted to wait until after lab results to send renewals for thyroid Rx. BP Rx was not sent to mail service pharmacy until I called provider to inquire. She called a 14-day Rx to local pharmacy to carry me through until mail Rx arrived. Lab results were in the day following my appointment and thyroid level was stable. When I inquired about a renewal Rx, I learned it had been sent to the wrong mail service pharmacy. Again, I had to request a short-term Rx to be sent to a local pharmacy to carry me through until the new Rx was sent to the correct mail service pharmacy. As of this date, the Caremark has not received a Rx for my thyroid medication from provider. So, twice in the past 2 weeks I had to pay the local pharmacy price for a Rx when I should have received a 90-day supply from the mail service pharmacy for a much reduced cost.

I really liked how Nurse Lindsay asked which route I wanted to take and took her time to explain what my options were. She didn't rush me into making any decisions but was very patient with me. This was despite the urgent nature of doctor visits.

I believe Dr. Mainali is a highly competent physician. I wish she would spend a little less time using the computer & more time talking with me, I sometimes feel rushed.

The provider scheduled and I was able to obtain related blood lab work at the site immediately following my appointment - which was very helpful.

I have recommended Dr. Mainali to my friends and a relative. Again, Dr. Mainali is the very best of doctors. She listens to what patients say -- and somehow even hears what they are not saying. She follows-up on any concerns. I cannot believe how lucky my family and I are to have Dr. Mainali as our physician.

Dr Mainali took the time to answer all my questions and concerns.

If there were a higher rating, then I would certainly use that higher rating for Dr. Mainali. What a treasure! She puts her patients at their ease, and she has a sixth sense about her patients. When I had a minor concern, she addressed that immediately knowing that it would allow me to focus on more serious concerns.

I could not possibly say enough good about Dr. Mainali. She is an outstanding physician. She listens carefully, explains everything in an understandable manner, and ensures that each patient is treated as an individual whose concerns are her concerns. She is remarkable.

Dr.Mainali is a very caring physician. She helped me get my life back on track. I feel very fortunate to have her as my doctor!

It is like you are on a speeding track. Doctor rushes in and rushes out. I know they have a time frame to stay in but I felt so rushed. The visit was fine I did not leave with questions. I just felt rushed. Being rushed makes you feel like a number now someone the doctor knows.
