About Dr. Opsasnick

Philosophy of care

The most important thing I can do as an internist is listen carefully to you as my patient. Patients are acutely aware of their own bodies and can be excellent historians. A good history is the fastest means to the correct diagnosis and treatment. You and I are a team and must work together for your best health.

Why I entered medicine

I specifically chose internal medicine because of the overall breadth of the specialty. Taking care of the whole patient and utilizing diagnostic skills has always been very satisfying and rewarding.

Community involvement

I am involved with Saint Joseph’s Center, the Scranton area United Way and The Foundation for Cancer Care.

Personal interests

I enjoy walking, reading and spending time with my family. I particularly like following my favorite sports teams in football, baseball and basketball.

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.
