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.

Dr. Sapani Manali has been my PCP for a number of years. She listens carefully to my concerns and thoroughly answers my questions. She includes me in decisions regarding my healthcare. She is professional and personable. I trust her completely with my healthcare.

I recently had moved to the area with a diagnosis of POTS disease. This provider showed zero concern or interest with my health and did not make me feel comfortable to open up and discuss health concerns and questions. She seemed rushed and completely faced the computer screen to ask questions throughout the visit. As a nurse and a patient I did not feel safe or cared for by the provider in anyway. I will be rescheduling this appointment with another provider to discuss my health condition with and will never see this provider again. I was offended by her disconcern for me as a new potential patient of hers. She needs to be evaluated as a medical professional.

Dr. Mainali has been the first (& only) PCP to evaluate ALL my experiences with bad headache pain to provide better ongoing treatment.

Dr. M. is the best doctor I've ever had. Excellent diagnostician & listener, shows concern & interest, remains professional. Can't say enough good things about her.

Dr. Maineli was friendly and helpful.

I switched from Dr. Devan to Dr. Mainali because I didn't feel my situation was taken serious enough. Dr. Mainali turned out to be far worse than Dr. Devan in this particular instance. I liked Dr. Devan but because of the situation, I switched. I am thinking of switching again. I am not impressed with Dr. Mainali at all. She tends to "blow off" everything. It's my body, and I know it better than anyone and when I say there is something not right, I expect it to be looked into. I don't think that is asking too much.

I did not see a nurse or a doctor. I had to reschedule.

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.

Very good doctor!

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.

Good. #1. Good. #8. Was good. #9. Good.

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.
