I had no idea what it meant to be a doctor until medical school. It sounded like a great application of my love of science, but it is much more than I could have imagined. My studies combined with my own life experiences enable me to care for each patient with a unique treatment plan and approach. We work as a team with other physicians, my staff, and their family or friends to recognize health problems and solve them.After losing my father to heart disease at an early age, I knew that prevention was important. I also learned a lot about communication between physicians and patients.

Patient Comments (2)
Austin, TX |
Dr. Geisler was not the kind of doctor I expected. I was hoping for the doctor I’ve always dreamed of, and thought I’d find that in a woman doctor. A doctor who is caring, calm and compassionate. Unfortunately, Dr. Geisler showed none of these qualities. Trust is the backbone of any doctor/patient relationship, and while she has high ratings in her professional life, I’d feel uncomfortable asking questions for fear of what she’d write about me in her notes, which would be in my record forever.

Best doctor I've ever had at any point in my life. I would give her 10 stars if I could. She's everything you want in a doctor. I couldn't imagine seeing anyone else.
