  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.

Had 2 visits 5 days apart, I was scheduled for blood work *;30 am, but when I got there, NO ORDERS WERE FOUND. SOMEONE FORGOT TO PUT BLOOD WORK ORDERS IN. Days later, I went back, for no reason. No blood work, ( diabetic here) no check up, no exam, just a "meeting"with nothing new. " see you in 6 mos"

Dr Yusko is an amazing, compassionate and extremely intelligent physician. He is the only reason that I continue to go to this office because I do not want to leave him. I waited over an hour to go into this appt and then was only seen because Dr Yusko happened to see the reason I was there and told the staff to bring me in immediately! I used to brag about Geisinger being a good medical group but I don't feel confident saying this any longer with regard to the wait times, especially phone, and the lack of helpfulness and ability to get appts with our care provider.

I'm not sure how much I can say to truly describe my appreciation for Dr. Yusko. through many different milestones in my life he has helped me prepare to be the best mother, wife and professional. ranging fromhis time to his care he knows he medical responsibilities but treats me as a patient he cares about (although I know he is in high demand).

Dr.Yusko is by far the best primary care physician I have ever had, not only personally but also professionally. He is an amazingly smart man and is always thorough.

Dr.Yusko is the only reason we stay with this group

I really like Dr. Yusko. I like the fact that I can talk openly and honestly with him and I like that he feels he can tell me what I NEED to hear, not what I want to hear.
