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 would surely recommend Dr. Semien to anyone . He listens to all of my concerns and answered all questions. He explained everything about my surgery. Felt very comfortable with him. He was recommended by others and I understand why. Great doctor.

I was so lucky to have Dr. Semian as my surgeon & doctor. I was so sacred. 2 others said it was too complicated and my hernia kept getting bigger. The first time he examined me his confidence in his skill soothed me. I had no complications so far and his surgical skill is awesome. But also his attitude, bedside manner was great. I owe this man my life.

I honestly had such a good experience. I was able to have a surgical consult the same day my provider called and was scheduled for surgery two days later. My usual hospital (and employer) was not able to deliver such prompt appointments even after 2 ED visits, inability to work for almost 3 weeks, and an 18 pound weight loss.

I appreciated the amount of time that was given to my medical issue and the caring ear brought to it. I left with a specific course of possible actions in mind, which I found very satisfying.

Dr. Semian has been wonderful in his care for me following surgery. Last July (2015) I developed a nasty infection afterwards and he has cared deeply in the following months. A very caring doctor!
