Overall
I spent most time with the PA who was great. Moved quickly but asked questions,described the condition and potential surgical procedure. Professional and warm.
Overall
I've never had this procedure before,and I didn't expect some of the immediate and later effects. For example the intermittent numbness,which was the presenting symptom,gave way to some intermittent tingling and pain,which I hadn't feltbefore. Also,while I was asked about my daily medications,and they were in my records,I wish I had confirmed that there would be no interaction between the drugs I was given (and didn't expect to be presented as an option) and the Tikosyn that I take. There numerous drugs that can't be taken with Tikosyn,so when I had some heart-related symptoms the next couple of days--which occur very rarely for me--I became concerned about the fact that I hadn't checked on this. I've had physicians prescribe pills that I discovered after picking them up (but before taking them) that they could be problematical. In those cases,was able to call and get a different prescription. This was different because I had to make a decision and get the medication immediately,so I couldn't check. I think the symptoms I had the next day were coincidental,but it was a good lesson for me to learn: confirm with the physician that it would be safe to take with the medicines I'm already taking. I am very confident that Dr. Klena knew there wouldn't be any problem,but it would have been good to have been reassured on this account.
Overall
I've recommended several people. Not sure if they have gotten an appointment.
Overall
the doctor gave no sign of care in finding a reason for my current pain. Told me I didn't need a follow up,and if I see someone else for a second opinion he'd love to learn what they have to say- because he's still young! I felt that was rude,unprofessional and basically offering me to go somewhere else.
Overall
Dr. Klena is a wonderful Dr. He is the top Dr. at Geisinger in my eyes.
Overall
Excellent service and care!! Dr. Klena ideal--knowledge,concern,care,ability,et. al. All attending staff - nurse,resident,med student most able,pleasant and professional. Support staff--intake,reception,check out outstanding!
Overall
Dr Klena is such a wonderful Doctor. I never felt rushed or ignored during the appt. He was very attentive and understood my concerns.
