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.

He was very thorough in going over my symptoms and helpful in explaining the benefits of my medication and changes in them to help reduce symptoms. as with the nurse, he made me feel comfortable to ask questions.

Dr. Oppermann was obviously very intelligent and capable. He was very thorough, very attentive, and made sure all of my questions were answered.

I have already recommend Dr. Otterman to a couple of my friends.
Jan 5
Dr. Opperman did a better job of listening to my concerns this visit.
Dec 16, 2016
Dr. Opperman doesn't try to impress by using a lot of medical terminology. If he uses anything one doesn't understand, he'll explain.
Dec 14, 2016
Doctor was great
Dec 5, 2016
Love this doctor. First time in years a doctor has really listened and helped me get off medications and on the ones that have helped.
Nov 28, 2016
Doctor himself called and got me in on that day. Has checked back with me 3 times on My Geisinger in a timely manner about how I am doing on the meds. with check on my pain improvement.
Nov 17, 2016
Dr Oppermann reminded me to request prescriptions well in advance since your mail system to pharmacy is terrible (my words, not his).
Nov 11, 2016
just this visit but doctor seemed rushed never happened before
Nov 7, 2016
the doctor seemed not to believe what I was saying that was going on with my arthritis problem. I would explain until one thing. But he would counter argue with me saying that my body doesn't show that type of problem. It's making for a poor doctor-patient.
Nov 4, 2016
I do recommend others to this provider. I will continue to see this provider he is very educated and intelligent and cares aboiut my health
Nov 1, 2016
Great doctor. Explained everything - and suggested several possibilities - made himself available for further questions.
Oct 26, 2016
Dr. Oppermann is very professional, yet seems to genuinely care about patients.
Oct 14, 2016
Dr.Oppermann noticed that I had written questions with me & before I could begin asking them, he said "I see you have questions, lets go over them & he answered all of them thoroughly.
Oct 4, 2016
"using words you could understand" questions are insulting
Sep 23, 2016
Dr. Opperman is awesome!
Sep 20, 2016
The care provider seemed uncomfortable (probably because he is replacing Dr. Ayoub, a hard medical professional to follow). He masked his discomfort by talking rapidly and bombarding me with statistics. For a doctor he appeared somewhat cold and distant, not what I am used to at Geisinger facilities.
Sep 12, 2016
No one seems to know what's going on with me.
Sep 9, 2016
Dr. Oppermann is such a compassionate doctor.

I've already recommended Dr. Oppermann to others. My only regret was not finding him 3 years ago when I was first dx with RA.
June 7, 2016
Dr. Oppermann shows concern not only during office visits but through emails and phone calls. This shows me he is concerned and it also makes me feel safe. In tne past I have recommended him to another person

Dr. Oppermann is an outstanding clinician- caring and knowledgeable, and listened carefully to my history and concerns. I greatly respect and appreciate his clinical skills!
Apr 7, 2016
I felt like I was rushed. This dr. seems like he's not taking me serious when I'm giving him symptoms and also refused to do paperwork on my dog which is a therapy dog and I am diabetic.
Apr 1, 2016
The doctor was very nice and I felt very comfortable.
March 29, 2016
I have seen Dr. Opperman previously and thought him to be an excellent doctor. For that reason, I wanted to been seen by him as I trust him completely. I appreciated that in spite of (what I am certain is) a hectic schedule, he followed up on a question I had. Would I recommend to others -- without a doubt. In fact, I have. And, I will continue to want to see him any time I have any concerns about joints, ... .
March 21, 2016
Dr. Oppermann is one of a VERY few doctors I would tell others to go see in the State College area. He is patient, kind, compassionate, and knowledgeable.
March 11, 2016
Dr Opperman actually phoned me prior to the appt since I was unfamiliar to him to find out my symptoms. He was very willing to see me and quickly reviewed my chart. Awesome for a doc to care this much!!!!
