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.

I felt like her goal was to get me out the door as quickly as possible. She simply reassured me that everything was fine and that there really wasn't anything I could do about the discomfort that brought me there that day.

Having female issues which are pretty serious. Had radiologist recommend follow-up in 2 months, Dr. Roots said 1-2 years. She wasn't even concerned when I said I was in pain. Not a dr. I would ever want to see again. For a first time visit it will... definitely be a last. I would rather wait an hour for a doctor who cared than 5 minutes for a doctor who brushed me off.

Should have been given medication prior to IUD placement to soften cervix. Pain medication should have also been given. Never had children before & pain med would have been helpful.

best women's health professional I have dealt with, caring explains well and most importantly treats me as with respect care and dignity

She completely ignored my primary complaint and was content to leave me with an untreated an infection- with no suggestions for how to proceed further or anything to try- unexplained pain- with no suggestions other than to take ibuprofen, even though the pain was clearly abnormal, and she ignored the details I tried to give her about my symptoms, literally talking right over them in a fake-concerned voice- then walking out without giving me any resolution, saying "We'll see you next year." I am leaving this practice.

I have already recommended this Dr. to my family/friends.

Dr came in didnt ask how I was feeling or explain what I may be going through. After an hour and a half ride down there,thinking I was going to get better care only to be told shes going to order bloodwork and if thats ok to follow up with my pcp. Very frustrated with this dr,it seemed my health was not important to her and that she was either very busy or just didnt care!

Dr. Roots explained everything and was very thorough.

*Dr. Roots, while extremely professional & knowledgeable, was also exceptionally empathetic. I thank God for having been scheduled with this Dr.!

During the actual appointment the doctor was very kind and explained everything she was doing. Afterwards was where my issues came into play I had a lot of questions. I wanted ask about what was done and some concerns/worries. But before I could ask she was up and out the door. I left with no information and upset but didn't say anything.

Given the length of time the practitioner was running behind, the appt was incredibly rushed and I had zero opportunity to ask any of the questions I had come with or clarify what future appts I should have. I too have been behind in appts before and understand that it is usually out of the practitioner's control, but one should always ask if there are any questions before exiting the room.

I haven't had a pap smear in almost thirty years so for me I would come back to Dr. Roots that should tell you something, she was easy but quick and her and the nurse made me feel comfortable.

dr.root was not well educated in my endometriosis, When I called for the appt. I told them it would be for a follow up for the endometriosis. I did not feel she new much on my issue.

Did not put instructions in for scheduling follow-up visit, or planned C-section. So check-out was very delayed. Then she scheduled my C-section for a day that was not available, and didn't notify me until a week later.

Care was very good.

This was the 3rd scheduled visit with this provider expecting to have a colposcopy performed. I will never return to this practice. Actually at next open window I am going back to Blue Cross.

First visit with her, really liked her. I want to keep her as my dr.
March 30, 2015
I already have recommended Dr Roots to a friend of mine who is having issues
March 30, 2015
I was extremely displeased w/this provider I did not care for her tone and the way she dismissed my concerns and issues. I was very put off by her and I felt like an inconvenience I felt like she was making me out to feel crazy. I do not want to see her again.
