  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.

I rate Dr. Devan highly because she is thoughtful, clear, supportive, and takes appropriate time to explain and to answer questions.
Jan 10
I left this appointment with a much better understanding of what had happened and what to expect going forward with my condition, and at no point during my visit did I feel like Dr. Devan was rushing - if anything I felt that she took time to listen to me, to talk with me, and to ensure that I felt that our appointment met any goals I might have had.
Jan 9
Care provider interrupted once again when I was speaking, as seems to be her habit with me. She was already in the hallway, as if in a hurry? Is this insurance timing pressure? I was left sad and disappointed after my visit, that a professional does not seem to have appropriate communication training in treating seniors citizens with respect and cultural sensitivity. How can her attitude serve to create a trusting relationship? May we request another clinician as patients?
Dec 28, 2016
Would like provider to offer more details on evaluation of my problem - what TO EXPECT OF OUTCOME OF SCAN SHE PRESCRIBED FOR ME.
Dec 27, 2016
This was my first encounter with Dr. Devan for a routine physical she was very pleasant and informative and I look forward to having her as my primary care physician
Dec 19, 2016
She showed patience and excellent communications skills when she thoroughly explained my injury to me. She (literally) drew me a picture so that I could completely understand. I really appreciated both the care that she showed and the knowledge that I gained.
Dec 17, 2016
Have had her twice & very helpful.
Dec 14, 2016
Dr. Devan is an exceptional physician (as a physician myself, I'm a fairly good judge of that!). Her knowledge, clinical skills, people skills, and listening skills are outstanding.
Dec 8, 2016
Dr. Devan is an excellent doctor.
Dec 8, 2016
She seemed to be in a hurry, not paying attention to what I thought about my condition.
Dec 6, 2016
Dr Divan is always caring and courteous.quite willing to spend time explaining treatment.
Dec 6, 2016
When lab work is done, I would like to discuss the results with my dr. rather than receive a letter which says "I have reviewed your lab results," which can be technical. I would like suggestions on how to improve any negative results.
Nov 21, 2016
love dr devan!
Nov 21, 2016
Dr. Devan is a tremendous asset to your organization.
Nov 18, 2016
I am very lucky to have Dr Devan as my PCP.
Nov 17, 2016
I have recommend Geisinger to friends and family.
Nov 14, 2016
Provider was running late. I was scheduled for my yearly physical. I just felt overall that she was rushed and in turn rushed through my appointment to get caught up. I had questions to ask and asked them but felt like they were brushed off. This isn't usually how she is with me. Overall I was disappointed that my yearly preventative physical turned out this way. It's the only appt covered at 100% by insurance. If i want to go back to get more questions asked, I'll have to pay out of pocket.
Nov 14, 2016
Dr. D_____ is great!
Nov 11, 2016
Doctor used the test results that I brought with me so that I didn't need to pay and have the same tests done another time! I really appreciated that!
Oct 28, 2016
Great care from Dr. Victoria Devan
Oct 12, 2016
I recommend Dr Devan any chance that I get. She always spends plenty of time with me, explains and answers questions easily, and is very empathic.
Oct 8, 2016
She was very nice as was to me before.
Oct 7, 2016
Felt rushed as always.
Sep 28, 2016
She seemed competent.
Sep 28, 2016
Dr. Devan is a very friendly, interested and attentive care provider. Her greeting is always warm - with a handshake. Sends me off w/the same. I want to hug her but don't. A balance of professionalism & genuine concern, warmth. Dr. D. communicates through MyGeisinger.org but nurses "screen" messages.
Sep 21, 2016
The car giver was my primary care doctor and she is wonderful. I can not say enough good things about her and I always recommend her to others
Sep 21, 2016
she was very kind and apologetic for the delay.
Sep 19, 2016
Finally, after 13 years, this provider tried to approach me as a person, rather than a number on a list of patients
Sep 12, 2016
Dr. Devan has always been caring and considerate. She makes appropriate plans for my care and gives me the information that is necessary. She is a valuable member of your staff.
Sep 6, 2016
I'm going to look for a new female doctor at Grays Woods. She's not as professional as I would expect. I think the over all staff at Gray's Woods OBGYN office are much more professional & caring. Hopefully family practice will be too.
Aug 31, 2016
good experience, very professional and -immediately apologized for any delay.
Aug 30, 2016
Can't understand why she continues to work for an organization with such systemic problems.
Aug 3, 2016
Nice manner, professional yet personal. Explains medical conditions & medications well. Efficient, but usually doesn't act rushed.
Jul 20, 2016
Dr Devan is very engaging, a good listener, and answers my questions and concerns.
Jul 13, 2016
Medical student was with her - very polite.
Jul 12, 2016
dr Devan is friendly, thorough and knowledgeable. always spend plenty of time with me, never feel rushed.
June 27, 2016
I adore Dr. Victoria Devan. She is the first female dr. I ever had. She is wonderful!
June 17, 2016
Always takes the time to listen and provided excellent advice regarding my treatment concerns for an elderly family member
June 17, 2016
She seemed a bit rushed and perhaps annoyed that it was taking me time to process her suggestions and my questions were taking time to answer. I was on time for my appointment but it did not start on time, so perhaps she needed to make up the time (even though it was an 8:30 am appointment). In general she has a pleasant manner, though sometimes a bit patronizing.
June 14, 2016
There seems to be no effective team work between provider with other participating providers regarding timely hospital admissions, or test and visit results. Any contact is left up to the patient for follow- up care. The experience is causing lack of confidence in the providers in the network that claims to provide Team effort-not so!
June 6, 2016
Have already told friends.
June 6, 2016
my appointment was late in the day, was to have a test done, but was not scheduled, still not scheduled
June 6, 2016
I feel like there was an assumption of what was wrong and not actually solving the problem, since than I was given another prescription and it hasn't helped.
June 2, 2016
Dr Devan is always impressive in her knowledge ( I always learn something), courtesy and generosity with her time. I greatly appreciate her making time to see me about this choking cough and her approach to find the cause. I appreciate that she doesn't "talk down" to patients.
May 26, 2016
She is a great doctor, but probably in a hurry that day because she was running late.
May 26, 2016
Dr. Devan is wonderful. A caring professional who never makes me feel rushed during my visits.
May 25, 2016
She took her time and discussed my health and any concerns i had
May 25, 2016
I understand that circumstances beyond her control probably made her run late with appts.
May 10, 2016

Dr. Devan is as good as doctors get.
Apr 13, 2016
I have always been extremely impressed by Dr. Victoria Devan. As a physician myself, I very much like her approach to diagnosis and management, and the way she explains clearly any concerns and recommended solutions. Her approach is very friendly and professional.
Apr 13, 2016
First appointment and SO IMPRESSED with the time taken by Dr. Devan to inform herself on my history, medications, allergies, current concerns. Her thoroughness, competence, and forthright questions were impressive.
Apr 12, 2016
I prefer lots of information in lay language, but not dumbed down - I got the not-dumbed down lay language, but a little less information that I would have liked.
March 11, 2016
I constantly recommend Dr. Devan to new friends in town.
March 3, 2016
easy to talk to and very personable
Feb 19, 2016
Naturally, one could always spend more time talking with one's physician, but given the press of other patients, Dr. Devan accomplishes a lot without wasting time. She communicates very well.
Feb 19, 2016
Dr. Devan is one of the best doctor's I have on my team, she is truly concerned for my well being she always makes me feel like I matter I recommend her to everyone I know.
