very poor consultation time. I am a doctor myself, and the doctor I saw, spent zero time NFL to explain to me what my problem is given that my background will allow me to understand the situation he did not even put an effort to tell me what my problem is I did explain to my position primary care physician what happened requesting that he would stop referring to this doctor any patient so he would not experience the bad experience that I had

the doctor seemed very qualified and knowledgable, but wasn't very relatable. he spoke in medical terms, and didn't take the time to explain things in layman's terms. his bedside manner was very aloof.
Southshore - PG Survey

Dr Geary seemed disinterested in my ailment and made me feel like my diagnosis was not concerning. He never apologized about keeping me waiting-I waited 1 hour and 45 minutes and he spent maybe 7 minutes with me. He did not have any compassion. I understand he sees many patients who have more severe issues but that should not negate the problem I saw him for. I have expressed my feelings to my friends and family who have asked about seeing him-I can honestly say I would not recommend him ever

Will never recommend this MD to anyone and will never be back to see him again, if he were the last one standing! Severly lacking the ability to deal with patient on a personal level, we were just another dollar sign/number to him.

Dr. Geary was incredible. He listened to all my concerns and addressed each one immediately with no hesitation whatsoever. By the time I left he had addressed all of my concerns( ____ problem ) through x-rays and blood tests. I could not ask for better care. His thoroughness, willingness to listen to my thoughts on what was wrong and speed at answering my questions and concerns was incredible.

My visit felt rushed but Dr. Geary was friendly and I have confidence in him. I got an _____ diagnosis from x-ray and Rx for PT but little discussion, just a handout on _____ and to call in a month if pain not relieved by PT.

As efficient as this practice is--and we've been here many times now--I feel as though the practioner is always rushed. He/She rushes into the room with an assistant taking notes on the computer, and I feel as though we have a limited time to get all our concerns out for discussion. p.s. this Survey needs a "Not applicable" answer choice, as some of these items aren't applicable to this visit.

10/17/2016

He doubted the diagnosis from 3 other providers, ordered an MRI after taking X-rays - no explanation why, offered Rx - didn't accept. He spent maybe 8 minutes on this initial OV/evaluation. very rushed, seemed mildly interested, didn't consider my request for medical assistance that day - said to come back in 2 weeks despite high level of discomfort & mobility issue - only offered medication which I didn't want.

For anything other than stitches, or a bad headache, I've always gone to my favorite hospital in Boston (BIDMC) because I firmly believed that first class care was not available on the South Shore. My experience here was first class in every respect, so good that I broke my "Cardinal Hospital Rule", and asked the surgeon if I could become a patient. My Cardinal Hospital Rule dictated that anything above and beyond treatment for stitches or a bad headache would be treated at BIDMC or another first class Boston Hospital. I'd heard horror stories about inadequate, horrid treatment at South Shore Hospital, and was not going to become a statistic. I've had numerous surgical procedures at BIDMC, a couple at Brigham and a couple other Boston Hospitals, and have never had any problems pre or post surgery. Finding your gleaming facility on the South Shore was almost like seeing the Emerald City in the Wizard of Oz.

was a quick visit. wasn't surprise it was quick
Southshore - PG Survey

He walked in and tore my steri strips off without first warning me. First, that's painful. Second, they were not supposed to come off yet. Third, if it was necessary to do so, isn't common courtesy explaining why and that you are about to do it? Not going back to this doctor. I'm sure he's great at what he does but bedside manner needs major improvement. Then he left me with nothing covering my healing wound. I asked, "is there a bandaid or something to put over this?" He looked in cabinet, shut it and walked out without saying anything. So I left with nothing covering a painful wound, with pants rubbing against it. Also, how about "you're all set or check out at the front desk" I had no idea what I was supposed to even do. Most doctors don't ignore you and walk out as the end of your appointment.

The visit was very brief and he dictated notes to his intern/medical assistant. Did not even look at my knee (manipulated over my pants).
Southshore - PG Survey

03/25/2016

It was obvious Dr. Geary was sick. He had dried nasal secretions on his nose. He was not friendly. He was not gentle during the exam. I was diagnosed with a tendonitis. He did not offer a clear explanation. I had to question him to find out more information. His form of treatment offered was a shot and did not offer any alternate forms of treatment. I had to ask about PT. I waited over an hour to be seen and felt rushed when it was my turn. I did not have confidence in his medical advice. It may have been because he was sick. I would rather the appointment cancelled or rescheduled with a doctor that was not sick and obviously should not have been seeing patients. I would not recommend Dr. Geary based on my experience.

Star student-athlete, Nick Hall, understands this journey all too well, when an ordinary practice at the start of his Senior football season at Cohasset High School ended with a torn ACL and meniscus…..
