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

Only good experiences. For a doctor I had never met, she seem to understand my medical concerns with only my charts and some question. In the end I felt I was important to the process which has not been the case with other legacy doctors I have had in the past.

The results of a blood test were discussed during the appointment and were available on MyHealth prior to the appointment. Since this is an ongoing review of the results, I have had the same test before and am familiar with the meaning of the results. Therefore, there was no need to discuss the test results prior to the visit with Dr. Jayaram. During the visit we had a full discussion of the test results and how to manage diet and exercise in the future.

Dr. Jayaram is the BEST PCP I've had especially now in my older years! She has done so much for me mostly when I get something wrong that I don't understand. And she refers me to the correct physician when I need one I hope that I can keep her for as long as I live! She is a very caring and wonderful dr.! I have referred 2 of my friends to her!

dr. J is perfect for my mom. she listens she advises she understands. she is kind. she also does not let my mom get away with excuses. example mom has been falling but refuses the medical alert necklace. mom has had a hard time getting up as she lives alone. with dr J logically and calmly telling mom the results of a fall (mom is a nurse) mom agreed to wearing an alert. we have tried for two years. Dr J made it happen!

The 3 front receptionists were all with patient's when I walked in. I stood at the front for exactly 5 minutes before one of them finished up with their patients and helped check me in. Normally, I wouldn't mind the wait, however, one of the girls was talking with a patient the ENTIRE 5 minutes I was standing there... about the colors! What are their favorite colors, what color the employees toenails are, etc. The patient was obviously checked in already, so it would have been helpful for her to say "Excuse me, it was nice chatting with you, but I have some patient's waiting to be checked in for their apt" Dr. Jayaram, however, was amazing, as always!!! Very courteous, respectful, timely, great bedside manner. The only feedback I would give her is to be more timely with mychart messages.

Doc. J is the best! She listens to everything & is very understanding. I've taken 2 different meds for the tongue fungus & it didn't clear up. This time she took a culture to send to the lab to find out whats going on. She doesn't want to give me more meds til she finds out what the problem is. My body can't handle alot of meds.

She is the best doctor I've ever had! I hope to have her until I no longer need a physician. The staff seems to change often in the office but remains professional and knows what's going on. I'm more than fine with this. My only issue is when calling in my class pain meds. they seem to forget one once in a while and then the refills are on different days. This causes an issue having to run back and forth to the pharmacy. Otherwise I'm more than pleased.

Dr. Jayaram and the staff are always cheerful and informative. Usually I am apprehensive about Dr's visit and especially when I know or expect a shot. (flu shot, ended up getting 2 plus a blood draw) I was fine yesterday and the nurse and other assistant were kind and gentle. Of course my arm/shoulder are both tender today.

It was suggested that I take physical therapy for pain and stiffness due to arthritis. Each visit would be $40 so I decided to do the exercises on my own due to cost. I should go at least once to get recommended exercises and then go on my own.

Dr Jayaram is a very special practitioner and I feel very comfortable being in her care. She is thorough, careful and makes sure that my health care is moving in the most positive direction. She is happy, smiles and laughs and I would not consider ever changing from her as my primary care physician. She is not reluctant to refer me to a specialist when appropriate and is aware when I do see a specialist so she knows what is happening in my health care. I consider Dr. Jayaram not only an accomplished physician, but over the years she has also become a friend and I value her care.
