Didn't listen to my symptoms and lied to be about fibromyalgia pain, medications and test. Pretty much said my hands hurt because I'm slightly overweight.

He took a lot of time with me to go over my symptoms and blood work. He was very thorough and asked me if I agree with the treatment plan. I was very satisfied.

Absolutely the worst doctor I've ever met. He spent approximately 10 minutes with me, did a 2 second visual "exam" of my joints, told me I had Fibromyalgia, and said he didn't need to see me back again. I sought a second opinion and was diagnosed with Psoriatic Arthritis and Psoriatic spondylitis. On top of the terrible visit and misdiagnosis, the charge for this wasted visit was over $700, which was an absolute waste of money.

Horrible bedside manner. I have been seeing a doc who had land we were on a and page with testing, etc. - baffled, but at least he was trying. Five minutes in a discussion with this doctor and he tells me, leaning back, arms crossed - totally shut off - exercise more, sit down if things hurt, don't sit on your butt all day (honest to gosh these were his words to me!) I felt hopeless when I left; teary eyed and choked up. The nurse even apologized to me, as she knows I'm usually happy! 0/5 rating

Just a great Dr. very friendly. DOES not talk over your head, will treat you like you should be treated. i can not say enough for him. he was the one that figured out what was wrong with me! just wish i would have seen him first after 12 Dr. you would have though the other 11 could have. right? //// just a side note /Spends appropriate amount of time with patients, now that is a yes & no i would like a little more time with him, but that is Geisinger fault not his. So i gave him 5 stars.
