Patient Rating

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

Dr. Cetas was personable, compassionate and knowledgeable regarding my breast cancer diagnosis. I feel confident moving forward with her treatment recommendations and follow up. Her nurse, Darlene has been a great support in helping me set appointments and navigate the Legacy system. I am driving from [location deleted] for treatment because I believe Legacy Drs. and staff can give me the most comprehensive care. I have really been pleased with everything .....so thank you Legacy!!!

Your questions about phoning the doctor's office during or after office hours is somewhat outdated in this age of electronic communication. It is perhaps more common to communicate by email (and faster).

Dr. Cetas was awesome in handling all aspects of my somewhat unexpected diagnosis of breast cancer. We reviewed the options available prior agreeing on the final decision to have a mastectomy. Also appreciated her stopping by to see me in the hospital the next morning to provide further information on the outcome of the surgery.

I was highly impressed with Dr. Alivia Cetas and her care team and also the office receptionists. All members of the team were caring, professional, attentive, proactive and knowledgeable. Dr. Cetas was extremely informative in a manner that I could understand what she was telling me, and it was very apparent that she had read my medical history prior to speaking with me. I feel very blessed to have her as my surgical oncology doctor. Also, I appreciated being able to get an appointment within a week of calling the office. Kudos to Dr. Cetas and her team!!!

I noted that I was not seen by the provider within 15 minutes of my appointment time, but this is an oncology surgeon, and she spends as much time as needed with each person, and she spent a lot of time with me. I sincerely appreciate her and her LPN, Darlene.

It was difficult to get a nurse to answer the phone directly, and I was often asked to call Dr. Cetas' other office, especially when trying to schedule surgery. Scheduling that surgery was extremely difficult because I could never get hold of the one person who could schedule it correctly. Too many different people to talk to and too many phone numbers to call.
