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

Love Dr. Coleman. His personality can come off a little stale at first but once you get to know him you see the he's actually warm and how much he truly cares for his patients. He has never rushed out of an appointment and even listens to personal matters at times. He's a stellar physician and just an overall decent human being. He did an amazing job with my cerclage procedures during both of my pregnancies. Would definitely recommend anyone to him.

Dr. Coleman has truly been the best physician. He is so attentive and responsive, and always gives me straightforward answers to my questions. I appreciate the time he has spent with us during my pregnancy, and would see him as my primary physician for everything if it were possible, because he is that fantastic.

Dr Coleman was hands down the best doctor I've ever had. My OB referred me to him because of an uncommon condition I had. She told me he wanted to see me the next morning at 8 am and that the doctors office would contact me to confirm. He personally called me to confirm with me because his was an emergency that needed to be fixed right away. He came into his office early to see me and then I was admitted to the L&D unit in the hospital for a procedure. I felt like the whole time he cared so much about me. Was always with me through being admitted, the epidural and making sure I was doing ok before they took me to the OR. He was always making sure I felt comfortable and understood everything that was going on and going to happen. For such a scary time in my life, I felt confident the whole time because of him and how much he seemed to care. I wish he could be my regular OB doctor and deliver my baby when time but I am also glad I am no longer a high risk patient.

I appreciated Dr. Coleman's honest, friendly, calming and non judgmental demeanor. It made it possible for me to focus on the necessary information instead of being caught up by my emotions in during a stressful appointment.

Dr. Coleman was exactly what we needed at a very difficult time. He gave us frank, accurate information. He did not try to sugarcoat the facts, which we appreciated greatly.

Dr. Coleman was great. My pregnancy has become high risk due to certain health problems with the baby. Dr. Coleman spent plenty of time with us and gave us lots of information (to the extent the information is currently available) about what we might expect. We will be seeing him every two weeks for the remainder of the pregnancy, and we are glad he is watching out for our and our baby's best interests.

Dr. Coleman is an amazing and wonderful Dr. While doctors are much more educated than a layman about medicine Dr. Coleman shows that he believes that every person has information to answer questions that tests, procedures and observation may not answer. He asks questions, listens well to answers and concerns and informs his patients while still allowing them to make choices for their health (now more informed decisions due to his knowledge). He is kind, comforting, supportive and really knows his stuff. Pregnancy especially with complications can be a very scary and emotional time, Dr. Coleman helps you by being the perfect combination of educated and down to earth. He knows when medical intervention is important and when it could be skipped. Thank you Dr. Coleman for being an important part of the team that helped me grow my precious angel who lays in my arms sleeping peacefully as I type this!

I have been VERY happy with my visits to Dr Coleman. Hebis kind and takes time to listen. My recent c section with him is healing beautifully and I have received nothing but extreme compliments from all nurses I've had dealings with since my surgery saying how great of a doctor he is.

I've seen Dr. Coleman for many years and he is the best doctor out there. He is very calm and knows what he is doing. It's easy to be his patient knowing he will provide the best care for you. He does care a lot about his patients!

after having 2 bad experiences with past pregnancies and deliveries I was unsure of how this one would go. I met wit my doc. And I really like him, he made things clear and easy for me to follow and understand. And no sugar coating things either. told me how it was and is. And he listened to my questions and concerns at all my apts.And the staff was simply amazing. I liked how well they were able to work wit my schedule and help me get to where I needed to be and how they all re assured me was gonna be ok. And how kind and amazing my doc was at delivery of my baby. I couldn't have found or asked for a better doc. :)
