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.

I am quickly learning that this office is only a gateway manager to guiding the patient on to the more expensive specialists. I will be looking for a gp who still practices medicine as opposed to spending his valueable time typing on the keyboard of his computer with SYA programs. Is this what medicine has come to?

Doctors spend more time on the computers than really checking you out! They used to check everything like moles, etc. every time.

Dr. Russell is very friendly doctor. He takes time to ask my son questions about his health concerns and also chit chats with my son who communicates via iPad.
