Haven't been to a doctor in years, but was pleasantly surprised with the experience; from check-in to check-out. Also very much appreciated the time Dr. Patel took with me.

I really appreciated that the Internal Medicine team was taking general care appointments to help with the backlog during flu/cold season.

Manisha Patil is a very good doctor. She listened and didn't treat me like I was stupid. She accepted my decisions to not get the shot that was offered. She didn't push me or act like I was making a decisionthe was against her. She respected my right to decide what to put into my body.

Overall
Dr. Patel showed little concern for my problem (fatigue and confusion) and immediately tried to prescribe an antidepressant. She asked me if my periods were heavy because,if so,my iron could be low. I told her no,and she said well. only goingto order iron labs and we'll see. I had to specifically ask her to test for other vitamin deficiencies,Lymes,and blood sugar issues. I honestly felt like she just wanted to blame my symptoms on depression,not look into other causes,prescribe an antidepressant and quickly move on to the next patient. My visits with her get shorter and shorter every single time. I will be changing doctors,after 4+ years with Dr. Patel.
Overall
I came with a specific problem and an annual exam,but because it was my first appointment we spent most of the time getting my medical history. my exam was perfunctory and the doctor actually tried to hear lung sounds through mybra. I felt she did one unnecessary lab test,but didn't do a simple inexpensive lab test that would have addressed my primary complaint - fatigue of new onset.
Overall
very happy with the whole wxperience
Overall
I needed a little extra TLC this visit and Dr Patel took the time with me - we discussed a different med and how and when to follow up.
Overall
Dr. Patel is a friendly and approachable doctor who listens and gives good care.
Overall
I was given Prevnar vaccine; less that 24 hours later,I had flu-like symptoms. Did use MyGeisinger to report these to Dr. Patel. Was ill for at least four days and still have cough and congestion. Assumed this was reaction to vaccine.
Overall
I wrote a list of problems prior to the appointment. I went through only a few. I got the distinct impression that Dr. Patel thought I was wasting her time. I had hoped to talk to her about Lyme disease,cardio examsbecause of my sleep apnea,and signs of dementia. All have similar symptoms to my prescription side-effects. I also wanted her to check a swollen gland on the back of my neck,and she brushed me off saying I could discuss it with a surgeon when I talked to him/her about the lipoma on my neck and removal of the internal hemorrhoids.
Overall
Mary,the nurse always addresses any concerns I have,and then Dr. Patel goes over everything with me. I always know that my medication refills are called in,all future appointments are made,lab work is discussed and or scheduled. A completeand through appointment.i have complete confidence in my health care provider and staff.
