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. Gizzi is an outstanding provider. Answered all my questions regarding a recent stroke, in clear detail, including root cause, benefit of medications and hope beyond. Surely ranks at top of his profession!

My care is related to a rare condition I got last year. Seems like it has resolved itself. Great care from Ross Patterbaugh, Anti Goag, MRI staff & Dr. Gizzi & all staff. Thank you.

Dr. Gizzi is a very good listener and thought about what I said. Suggested some tests to narrow down what he was thinking.

Dr. Gizzi has kept up with the current research on a quite rare condition. In my experience, this is unusual.

Dr Gizzi is absolutely THE BEST. He is very respectful, meets the patient where they're at, patiently listens and explains thoroughly. After this visit I felt well supported and left feeling very positive.

With Dr. Gizzi specializing in stroke and vestibular issues, I was very disappointed with this visit because he had no answers to my questions. I talked more to the first guy then to Dr. Gizzi about my symptoms. Dr. Gizzi never asked me any questions about my symptoms or vision history. I thought if anyone could answer why my migraines affect or damage my vision it would be Dr. Gizzi but I was wrong. He didn't even watch me walk. Guess I put too much expectation on him.

I was very disappointed with my visit because the specialist did not know any answers to my questions. He didn't have me walk for him, he didn't address my vision issues, and he didn't look over what testing had previously been done. As someone with balance and vestibular issues, I expected a better exam. Guess maybe my expectations of him were too high but he wasn't worth my time and money. Other office staff were very nice.
