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 40 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. Jamal just rushed through the appointment. He was rude and told me to shush when I was trying to tell my daughter to remind him about other concerns she had. He called in the wrong milligram of antibiotic to the pharmacy and didn't give my daughter any pain meds for her swollen face because of her parotiditis. He wouldn't listen to anything I had to say and kept interrupting me. Dr. Lawrence had to fix her antibiotics that were called into the pharmacy and he also gave her pain meds. Dr. Lawrence is a much better doctor than Dr. Jamal. I want to change her doctor to Dr. Lawrence. Dr. Jamal is very rude, inconsiderate, does not care about his patients and doesn't listen to the parents. He doesn't deserve to be a doctor, I will not be taking my daughter back to him for any medical concern or procedure. He also never called me back with the lab results of my daughter. I was concerned that she might have anemia, I was getting really worried. I called to remind him twice, and finally a covering doctor had to call and give me the results. Other patients that I came across in the Kistler clinic felt the same way about Dr. Jamal.
