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 is a fantastic radiologist oncologist... Without his skills, professionalism, and kindness, I believe I would have lost my battle to cancer.... I have survived three and a half years. I am healthy and going strong....... all because of this one-of-a-kind doctor.... He should receive an award for his outstanding performance and care to his patients..

Both Dr. Gergel and Wayne Rodriguez are great. They immediately make you feel at ease and you know that they really care about your well being both as a patient and as a person. At no time did I feel rushed or that I was not their only concern. Dr. Gergel has been up front with me on every visit and makes sure I know what to expect.
