About Maria Georgalas

Philosophy of care

I believe if you try to treat patients as you would like to be treated, then you are hopefully giving people your all. I offer you my absolute best.

Why I entered medicine

When I moved into the Lehigh Valley in 1985, I was fortunate to have amazing neighbors who quickly became like family. Sadly, years later, one of them was diagnosed with throat cancer, and I watched a strong, vibrant man become extremely sick. It made me want to pursue a career in the healthcare field. Today I am a certified physician assistant.

Community involvement

I serve on the board of our Greek Orthodox Ladies Philoptochos Society, which does charity work for the community.

Personal interests

Outside work I love spending time with my family and friends, and especially enjoy cooking for them.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
