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. Desai is truly one of the top 2 cardiologists I have seen. He listens, he explains, and he cares. He spoke to my kids and made sure they had no questions. He takes plenty of time and never makes me feel rushed or unimportant.

Desai's biggest concern was my PPO ins. NOT being adequate. After that he suggested I find a better qualified doctor. Suggested cardio surgeon look at my - CT scan he didn't know I had. Have not heard from Desai since.

Good visit. Dr. Desai cleared up all my questions and gave me additional insight to the watchman procedures he has performed thereby boosting my confidence in scheduling the procedure; based on Dr. Delman's input.
