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 cannot say enough good things about Colleen! She is phenomenal! So caring & concerned about my health. I always leave there feeling extra special because of her.

I chose Colleen because I knew her caring for her patients. My doctor gave three choices and I chose Colleen

colleen is absolutely amazing! she takes her time to listen to my concerns and answers all my questions. she is always smiling and is completely genuine with everyone she takes care of. I couldn't ask for a better provider to care for me and my baby on the way.

Colleen was the 1st person in 3 years to listen to my concerns & address them! All the rest told me to "lose weight" and symptoms will go away. She actually cared. Thank you!

She is a very good Doctor.

Though she seems nice, she is always late, spends very little time talking to me and tells me how Geisinger does things & I feel that I have no say in the natural birth that I want.

Usually pretty good... but at this specific appointment (I think we were the last one) I could tell she was in a hurry to leave and I felt bad asking all of my questions.

my experiences here have been great every time. I have already recommended the office to others.

Colleen is very friendly & compassionate.
Apr 18, 2016
She was very kind and informative but I felt she kept talking in circles and repeating herself. Seems she didn't want to do a biopsy with the doctor's opinions.

Colleen is fantastic! I will definitely make my appointments with her again.

Colleen persistently called my new Primary Care to have me seen that day for HBP
