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

I went to this doctor for the complaint of pain. After explaining that surgery would offer "only" a 50% chance of pain relief, he then began telling me all the different ways his office helps support tolerating chronic pain, and never ONCE offered the name of a surgeon who could offer me that 50% chance, or even addressing the possibility of surgery! After all, what HE was offering was a ZERO % chance of pain relief, and a 100% chance of living in pain the rest of my life!

I have been a patient of the clinic for [detail deleted to protect privacy] years, and I've been with Dr. Schrattenholzer for at least [date deleted] of that. He has always been informed, caring and willing to make the effort and take the time to provide the best care possible. The clinic staff could be described in the same way. Dr. S treats me as a part of the team that takes care of fairly complex medical problems, is always patient, is always kind. He makes referrals as needed and orders diagnostics and procedures we believe will be of help. I have nothing but good to say about Dr. Tom and the clinic staff, Tina, Barbara, Heidi, Katie, et al.

I wish there was more openings to see this doctor. I feel he needs more Dr.s in this office to assist him. I can't get in to see him even 3 months out. It's more like 4 months. That's not the Dr.s fault, its Legacy's fault for not having enough staff to see their patients.

Dr. Schrattenholzer is an excellent doctor and new exactly what I needed and set me up with the appointment I needed for my concerns. The physical therapy nurse that he had me speak with was also excellent.

The dr. is the pain clinic person for legacy and good Samaritan, he is exceptionally busy, but he seems to care about me, and my health. much better than my primary care dr. The dr I have here, I only wish I could get injections more often as they do help. The dr. figured that out on his own, he also furnished a pain patch and that helps, I only wish it were fentyanal, I used to have that from the VA. All in all, this guy is the best I have ever seen and I have seen a lot, inc army surgeons and drs. I had a lot of injuries in Vietnam and now I am getting better care from this dr., than I got at the VA although I had several operations at the VA I am now searching for a new cardiology dr. as mine is retiring, because of this dr. here. I am going to look for one at legacy. Mine is [name deleted] at Peace Health, I just got a new devise installed by the [location deleted] gut reiss, I am not happy with but they don't seem to care. This dr here Thomas Schrattenholzer would not be that way. If he were able to do that I would have requested him. I would much prefer to be able to contact this dr with any health problem he was interested in my insertion point of the devise and even looked at it. I appreciate that. I would like to do something for him.

Dr.Schrattenholzer has always made the extra effort to do and suggest the best options for my care. I had no quality of life when I walked into the office in 2012. Now I do get to walk with my grandchildren and play with them. I had given up hope. Dr.Schrattenholzer opened many doors of good quality care in the legacy team. we all worked together for a better quality of life for me. Dr Schrattenholzer is my angel on earth,he listens,he never demeans me, he explains all options,and the office team is just as wonderful. thank you legacy for giving us a wonderful doctor and such wonderful care!

The 4 visits PRIOR to seeing Dr. Schrattenholzer on the [age and details deleted to protect privacy] were the WORST experiences I have ever had at any doctor's office. I spoke to the office manager at length about them but until Dr. Tim Roddy called I was not referred to another MD - I am currently being followed by Dr. Schrattenholzer, who treats me the way a doctor should treat a patient.

Dr. Schrattenholzer is a wonderful doctor. I have serious and complex medical problems and he has been invaluable to me. I would also like to commend his pharmacist. My regular pharmacy could not fill one of my pain medications in a timely fashion. The pharmacist called several area pharmacies until she found one that had the medication. This is wonderful service!

I see Dr. Tom S. about every 6 months when I have my pump refilled. We talk about its efficacy and also about the [details deleted to protect privacy] I take by his prescription. At the risk of an off phrase--I love that doctor [as well as his nurse Katie White]; both consummate professionals. Indeed, the office staff are good folk--Barb is a wonderful receptionist as well as a sweetheart. That goes for my last visit, as well as all previous. OK?

I told Dr. Schrattenholzer that I was having severe pain in my right hip. I asked him to give me a cortisone injection, which he did right away. It helped me tremendously. He is a superior doctor.

Dr Thomas Schrattenholzer in my opinion is one of the best overall medical professionals i have EVER worked with. He cares very much that you have the absolute best chance at healing and having a productive life. This does not always align with what some individuals want (give me a pill). Dr S. wants you to have a quality of life worth living and not through a Rx. ---HE DA MAN--

the doctor was 45 minutes behind schedule and my appointment was for 10:20 am. we were not told upon check in that he was so far behind. my husband took time off work to be at the appointment with me at the doctors request. appointment took an hour longer that anticipated due to being behind schedule.

Dr. Schrattenholzer is amazing. This visit was a 2 month post op foot surgery appointment and to go over what pain meds I am currently on. He actually took time to look at my surgery foot as well as go over my medication in length and what are my best options to wean off or continue current meds. I had about 8 questions I wanted to ask. He sat, listened and answered every one of them. He never once looked impatient or like it was time for the session to end. I have had over 24 surgeries in 45 yrs and Dr. S is top notch in my book and I would highly recommend him to anyone needing pain management.

Dr. Schrattenholzer is an excellent physician. I've never felt rushed in any appointments with him - something i have never encountered in another doctor. He is thorough and always willing to take the time to answer your questions and make sure you know what he is talking about. A+ doctoring ;)

I feel that doctor and especially the nurse practitioner are in too much of a hurry. I feel like I am just a 15 minute slot and feel rushed every time I am at the clinic. I feel like I am cattle just being rushed through. I'm not even sure they know who I am and what my needs are.

Dr and the staff at legacy pain management clinic are always respectful of me, my time and my privacy. they listen attentively and I never feel rushed. highly recommend to others. if I had a complaint it would be to have Dr available at salmon creek more than just Fridays. but its not a really big deal.

I love that he asked me what I wanted it be when I wanted to begrow up and I told him a Peds Surgeon and he talked to me about it and he told me that I would be great at it and gave me some advice.
