As a student, I was apprehensive before coming in to see Dr. Geist. Through the course of the appointment, both theresident and the Doctor took time to explain everything that was going on, as well as help me feel comfortable moving forward with my treatment plan. I would highly recommend Dr. Geist to any fellow students looking for the proper care they need.

He pretty much just provide his specifics diagnosis in less than 5 mnts and recommend to see DR. Vilar and unfortunately not recommend it all, i guess it was not a good day for her, came late, never able to see or talk with her, my waiting time was for more than 30 Minutes (I wish as a patient we have a rights to charge it extra fee as they charge us for late or no show up). Front desk very helpful and as well the Dr. Assistant as they're the ones getting the details of your visits.

The most kind and gifted doctor I’ve ever met. He worked magic on my eye lid that had cancer. He removed 70% of my lower lid and did reconstructive surgery. You would never know. He’s that talented!!
