Doctor G. really listened and came up with a plan that took into account my vacation plans and still relieved my pain. It is great to have a doctor who listens and understands my difficulties and responds in a quick efficient and kind manner.

My son (the patient) has special needs. The doctor was very kind and addressed my son directly (rather than addressing me - which doctors often do). He made sure he understood what my son was saying and made sure my son understood what happened and what he needed to do to care for his injury

Dr. Geary has been treating me for over a year trying different methods to try and get my knee pain under control. WE have not hit it yet and still trying different options.

I was referred to Dr. Geary by my PCP for a shoulder injury so he could determine if I needed an MRI. There wasn't much involved with my appointment other than "yes MRI" or "no, you should be fine." Dr.Geary was friendly, kind, and attentive. The whole appointment lasted maybe 5 minutes but it didn't feel like he was rushing to get me out the door or get onto the next patient. Prior to coming in the room to see me, I overheard him talking in the hall with another patient who was a young sports player with a corresponding injury. He seemed to genuinely care about the kid and his team. I thought it was very sweet that he took the time to talk to him and show interest and encouragement. As an aside, I left lines blank for questions that were not applicable to my experience.
