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

The biggest issue is not related to the visit itself but rather the MONTHS it took to get the referral processed and to find an open date. Even Dr. Wesenberg was concerned that it took over a year from the xray that started this process to actually getting to see her. I don't think this is Dr. Wesenberg's problem, I think it is a problem with the health care system in general.

This was my first appointment with Dr. Wesenberg. I came to see her as a second opinion and because her office is more convenient for me than my initial pulmonologist. She was easy to talk to, was very thorough and knowledgeable. Took the time to answer questions and was reassuring about my condition. I will continue with her for pulmonary care.

From the minute Dr Wesenberg walks in the exam room and greets you with her genuine smile and handshake you are at ease. she is exceptionally thorough and explains all options with pros and cons. she is the BEST Pulmonologist I have ever seen.

I had to change Doctor as my health plan changed. My primary care provider referred me to Dr Wesenberg. I really liked her and she spent a lot of time with me going over my medical issues and making a plan to help improve my health. I am totally satisfied with her care.

This survey really is not appropriate for my particular visit....I am a new Pt. for this MD; this was the initial visit. She had some records but needed my written approval to get the imaging from previous provider. She had ordered some tests prior to the appointment so she had some hard data to help her understand whatever is my diagnosis.

This is the first Pulmonologist I have seen that truly seems to understand my issues. I feel there is hope to have superior identification and management.... finally. Such a professional, thorough evaluation with very understandable explanations. Good outline of the plan of actions for further evaluation to determine how to manage my condition. I am so utterly impressed. Thank you

I received 3 or 4 calls from different people about the upcoming visit. I would think one call should be enough. Dr Wesenberg is an excellent physician, I would not see another pulmonary doc!

It took me entirely too long to see the nurse. It was about 25 min. past the appt. time. Then it also took me too long to see the doctor as it was about 20 min. past the appt. time. Otherwise the visit was fine.

Dr. Wesenberg is businesslike, but very friendly. I felt completely at ease with her as she carefully explained why I was referred to her. The reason was not all a clear before my visit. I was very impressed and would recommend her without hesitation. By the way, Dr. Wesenberg is a PHYSICIAN NOT A PROVIDER. She spent nine years ..... becoming a physician. Providers sell street drugs to addicts or are prostitutes. Why does the health care industry insist on dumbing down the smartest and best educated people in the system.
