Legacy wants every patient to have great care, every time. To help measure and improve patient satisfaction, we send surveys to randomly selected patients after their appointments. We use this feedback from the surveys to improve and enhance the care we offer. It works like this: Real patients give us feedback through Press Ganey, a patient satisfaction survey company. They verify and confirm the results. National Research Corporation, an independent company, provides the technology to show the ratings and comments on our website

The services were excellent. However, I do not like being asked to fill out a survey EVERY TIME I see Dr. Furakawa or any other provider. It feels really redundant.

When my wonderful gynecologist, Walter (Ted) Foster retired some years ago, I thought I would be hard-pressed to feel as much confidence in another OB/GYN. Luckily for me, I stayed with this practice group and met Dr. Furukawa! I also should mention that the front-office staff of today is far superior to that when I first became a patient (at Portland OB/GYN).

Abby was fantastic! Knowledgeable, patient, informative, kind... 10/10. I also had a really positive experience at the front desk during check in and with the woman who called me ahead of time to verify insurance and ask questions about my upcoming (first) visit.

Dr. Abby Furukawa is the BEST!When I started seeing her, it was the easiest transition from my OBGYN who retired-she is SO kind, sweet, caring, compassionate and knowledgeable! I am always made to feel she has all the time for me.Thank your Dr. Abby!!!

Abby and Jessica are two of the most amazing people I see. I wish they were general practitioners so that I could go to them for all of my health care! They spend time with me, remember me (even after months of not seeing them) and I always feel like they listen and respect me. I've never felt rushed in an appointment and recommend them to EVERYONE that mentions they are pregnant. :)

It was the first time I visited this doctor and she got recommended by a coworker of mine. I was really nervous in the beginning, but she did a great job and I felt really well treated by her. Thank you so much!

I left my appointment feeling totally satisfied with my care both by the office staff and the doctor. This was my first visit as I had recently moved across the county and was concerned that I would be able to find care as great as I had in Ct. I did!! I did not answer some of the questions because of the fact that I had not received any health care until this visit.

I've been seeing Dr. Furukawa since she took Dr. Ono's practice over. I didn't think anyone could take his place, as he was an exceptional doctor and while I miss being under his car, I have found that I feel as confident in Dr. Furukawa's abilities and I have recommended her to others.

It was all good. No concerns or complaints. One small thing. The number Dr. Furukawa had me call to make an appointment for diagnostic imaging/ultrasound was for ST. Vincent ONLY. She had told me it was a number to call for any imaging location and that I should tell the operator I wanted my imaging done at Willamette Falls Hospital in Oregon City. After having to wait half an our for someone to come on the line, I was told immediately that the service was only for scheduling imaging at St. Vincents. Luckily, they had the number for Willamette Falls, which I called and was able to get through to scheduling on the first ring. I'm sure this was an honest error, but it delayed my ability to make an imaging appointment when I was already rather stressed.

I did not have a good experience during my visit and unfortunately it was the second strike with my doctor. The first time I had an issue with my doctor was when she was using a doppler to find the heart beat of my child, she could not find it and did not offer any reassurance until after I asked her if there was a heart beat. She then proceeded to tell me that sometimes early on in a pregnancy it is hard to detect with a doppler and in my mind that should have been stated before even turning on the doppler. After she couldn't find the heart beat she said that I would need to be rushed into the ultra sound room and I understandably got a little upset. The second strike for me was my most recent visit where I was a little over five months pregnant and she told me that I had gained too much weight. She said that usually at that point women gain 10 pounds and I had gained 15. She proceeded to tell me that I need to watch my weight. I asked her how I should go about that and she said that I should eat healthy fats including avocados, nuts and whole grains. I responded with that is my exact diet. At this point I felt as if my doctor had not made any attempt to understand me as a patient and I felt as if she was just going down a checklist of hers. I think often doctors fail to make the human connection and when your dealing with something so personal such as a first time pregnancy it would help to incorporate a deeper understanding of the patient before jumping to conclusions.

I switched to Dr. Furukawa's office after having a bad experience at my prior OBGYN, and I am so glad I did! Every experience I've had with Dr. Furukawa and the team at Legacy has been so easy, a sentiment that is of the utmost importance when it comes to routine healthcare!

I was late to my last appointment with Dr. Furukawa because all of the parking connected to the hospital and clinic was full. I had to park on the street some blocks away.

My only objection to my visit was lack of parking space. I'm always close to being late to my appt. because the parking structure is full & I have to go to another garage & walk a long way.

My provider is professional and efficient. she doesn't waste time and is to the point and takes her job seriously. Give this approach, it never hurts to have a welcoming disposition and positive interaction about the positive attributes that may be going right with a patients health progress. it gives encouragement. my provider does this to a certain measure-- its just nice to hear if you are doing something right with your health.
