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.

The doctor gave me as much time as I needed to talk with him. He was very caring and kind. He never made me feel like I had to leave the appointment because he was rushing me.

My one "Fair" comes not from this visit but from following my surgery. I spent the first night in agony; oxycodone had no effect. I later learned, from my pharmacist, that opiates conflicted with another medication I was on & that Dr. Semien was aware of. My other medication blocked the effect of the opiate.

This was a follow-up on a "repair" surgery. Just don't feel comfortable about it being fixed.
