Philosophy of Care

I find that my patients are most comfortable when I listen to them first, then give them options. Some people aren’t comfortable with that, but I won’t give them a “cut and dried” course of action the way some docs do. I‘ll tell them what I think about their decision, but ultimately, it’s up to the patient to decide.

What do I love most about my job? That’s easy: Simply interacting with my patients and getting them to feel better. Even sharing a good laugh with them sometimes — it is the best medicine, you know!

Medical Interests

I’m interested in chronic care. Most patients aren’t what you’d call a “textbook case” of a condition or illness. So I have a particular interest in helping them deal with the uniqueness of their situation. It’s crucial to the care of my patients that I treat them as individuals, not cases.

I also like to find ways my patients can make lifestyle adjustments that easily fit into their schedules. I encourage people to embrace a regular exercise routine – even If it’s not intensive – because it makes a huge difference. Just walking around the block at lunch hour can be beneficial.

Personal Interests

I enjoy spending time with my family, especially enjoying all the beauty we’re surrounded by. I grew up in the Puget Sound area and you simply can’t beat the scenery.

Dr. Geraci is very efficient, friendly, focusses on your comments, and she is very through examining you before presenting her findings. She continually asks additional questions to help clarify the issues. She has been very helpful with meds sent to [...] when they need to be reviewed for approval. I trust her completely and have already brought my husband from VA care to her. Dr. Geraci diagnosed my husband's serious/ruptured appendix when he was sent home from Providence Hospital ER. Dr. Geraci called personally to a surgeon who saw us immediately and the surgeon sent my husband immediately to the hospital where a colleuge was already in scrubs and took my husband straight into surgery. Dr. Geraci has always found the problem or referred us to a specialist who was better suited to remedy the needs. She is an asset to the Providence system and promotes the Providence System in her referrals when appropriate. We hope she is available many years to provide our care.

I had a 7:20 a.m. appointment and was called in early--yeah! In the past, with a later in the day appointment, I have had to wait as much as an hour. This was he fist time I received lab results via e mail. I had them within 2 days--that was wonderful. [...]

I was ill the day I saw her. The waiting in exam room was tiring, as I had physical pains that concerned me and made waiting tiresome. Normally the wait doesn't bother me.

Great, caring provider! Only negative is her unavailability due to her administrative responsibilities. Since I've been with her so long, I don't want to change to someone else. She communicates well with my endocrinologist for my diabetic care, so I want to stay with her.

I love Dr. Geraci. She is the only doctor I've visited who obviously respects my desire to NOT have children. She wasn't able to help me with my health issues this time (not sure if any one could) but I still trust her more than any other doc I've seen.

I really like her but it's hard to get an appointment. That is why I wouldn't jump to recommend her. It seems as though she has too many patients.

My main concern was wight and being very tired. I didn't really find out anything other than to cut down on carbs. I really would like a referral to a nutritionalist or other professional who specializes in such matters.

Dr. Geraci is always prepared ,respectful,and genuine. At my last appt. she suggested a new med. and gave me the reasons for the need. She is empathetic,kind, and good natured. The vocation fits her well.

Listens to problems and helps to solve or adjust so I am at ease with solution.

04/26/2016
They have all been good. Only exception is I'm still waiting to hear back about the test results; I received them on line but they need interpretation for me - a lay person. I have sent message via MyChart and still not heard. Concern is the duel role Dr. Geraci is employed to do may impact her time to get back to patient.

I was there for one hour before I saw the doctor. Plus I was there for a checkup. The assistant took my blood pressure and took my weight, but the doctor didn't examine me at all. Only talked with me. I didn't have any concerns except retaining water. I thought the doctor would be listening to my heart and check my lungs, something. But nothing. I found that odd since I was there for my yearly exam.

04/12/2016
It is all good

04/06/2016
Dr. Geraci and her team seem to know what questions to ask me, how to listen to my concerns about my health, and get me to the best of health. I much prefer her to the last internist I had in Olympia. Dr. Geraci is knowledgeable, smart, funny and "human" with her laughter and sayings; I really like her professionally and I hope she doesn't leave this community.

02/20/2016
I was there for a follow up and another question. She didn't look at all of the test results. Was too in a hurry to do a thoughtful job. If I hadn't asked her about the test results and need for further considerations, she would have been on to another client. I had another question for her that I wrote down, but she must not have read it and didn't ask me about it. I understand we all get in a hurry at times. This has happened before, so I am going to ask to see a different Dr.
