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. Gergel & Dr. Murphy are both very nice doctors. They greet you with a smile & a handshake. They usually answer any questions I have before I even ask them.

Dr. Gergel and his PA are exceptional people. Treatments prescribed by Dr. Gergel have spared my father from excruciating pain - providing comfort for my father from his first hospitalization for myeloma till now.

I wouldn't go to anyone else I told *Dr. Gergel that trust him with my life.

I was a different PA this time, his last name is something like Rodrigous. But as he told Gergel and I you do not pronouce it that way. He did not do much with me and left the room when Gergel came in. Gergel is always helpful and friendly and polite. He explains what ever I ask and I do ask a lot of questions.

Dr. Gergel was very clear I with his explanations, addressed all my questions and concerns and it was obvious he had familiarized himself with my case prior to speaking with me.

Have had treatment protocol changes 3 times - I get it - difficult and complex treatments - tough though.

Dr. Gergel has always taken time with me to insure all of my questions are answered. I never feel rushed and he shows genuine concern for my mental as well as physical well being.
