During check-in there was a long line that moved slowly. It became obvious that a new check-in person was beginning training and it slowed down the process. I would suggest that when the line got too long, the trainer should have taken some of the patients in line until the backup was cleared and then go back to training the new person. I would say, however, that the other check-in people were extremely quick and efficient.

I have been seeing Dr Geary for a shoulder injury for the past two plus years and most recently had shoulder surgery. I cannot speak highly enough about the ease and comfort that I have felt under his care and treatment. He has treated my questions and concerns with the utmost patience and respect and the medical care he had provided has been top notch.

Dr Greary ordered an mri which no one had previously at another orthopedic office. He suggested gel instead of cortisone treatments. Cortisone did not work. The gel seems to be working. Also suggested a rheumatologist. I trust his opinion. He is gentle and not rushed and I feel he really cares. Also very knowledgeable and never mind handsome! Nice doctor and really listens.

Dr. Geary really evaluates all symptoms very logically and presents the information and the alternates and the levels of said symptoms to me. Based on the info I received from Dr. Geary, I'm very confident that we have my shoulders under control. Great personality.

It was my first visit to this office & provider - was prescribed/ordered an MRI. Took a week to get a call for scheduling of that & another week to get back into office (still to come!) A slightly move urgent timeline for someone in pain would have been appreciated and completed the experience in a positive way.

Visit came in response to an ongoing issue that I have been unable to attend because of major back surgery. Dr. Geary saw me within four days of my call. I received new x-rays and was examined quickly, treated effectively and given a follow-up appointment. I have always appreciated the professionalism and care I have received.

I was very happy with my visit. The last time I had an appointment was about 5 years ago and it took approximately 2.5 hours for the entire visit. I was hesitant about returning, but gave it another shot. I was in and out (with an X-ray) in just over 45 minutes. Big improvement!

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

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.
