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 arrived early and they worked me in, which I never expected. So I was able to get done earlier than I expected.

Dr. William Winter and staff are professional, concerned and well trained. I would recommend Dr. Winter to anyone needing his expertise in the field of GYN/ONC. I am so lucky to have been referred to him.

Dr. Winter is an amazing doctor who is always so friendly, genuine, kind, and attentive. His staff is awesome; very sweet, accommodating, flexible, and caring. He is an excellent doctor whose knowledge and expertise is known by many, and I personally experienced this and am so incredibly grateful.

We waited to be seen a VERY long time. I believe this was due to over scheduling - something for the office to address.

Dr. Winter is wonderful. I would recommend him unequivocally to any woman addressing a gynecological cancer. I feel I have received the most expert care from him (for both a full hysterectomy and chemo) and also appreciate his obvious interest in treating the whole patient, not just the cancer. The clinic's staff are also knowledgeable, helpful and kind.

Dr. Winter and his staff always give me all the time I need to talk about my care and treatment. They are compassionate and caring always, never seeming rushed to get on to anything else. They always have answers when I have questions. I am so grateful for Dr. Winter and his staff in my battle with cancer.

Breath of fresh air. Did not try to tell me I was constipated when I had cancer. [name deleted] Gave direct answers to specific questions. Not at all like Dr. ____.

My provider has always been wonderful with me. However, this was one of my best visits as far as care from other folks. The clerks, the medical assistant and the phlebotomist were all professional and knowledgeable this time. The wait time in the lab for bloodwork was next to nil, and James(?) was excellent! Also, this time there was no hassle in getting a parking pass for my friend who had come to accompany me for my appointment. BRAVO on outstanding improvement on all counts!

[date and name deleted to protect privacy] First, if you've ever visited William Winters office and staff you would know exactly how wonderful he and his staff. I suggest you visit with them and give them this feedback directly. This is a wonderful health care team, they are easy to talk with, they are really nice folks, there's a plaque on the wall in the waiting room with Dr. Winter's name on it with a pretty darn high award, my own personal physician likes him, I like him and would certainly tell you differently if this wasn't so. So visit these great folks, take 'em out for lunch because they deserve it. Their job isn't always easy nor fun, they have chosen a tough field: oncology..not always good outcomes...Very sincerely

I was not made aware in advance that I needed blood drawn as part of my appointment. I was told to go to the labupstairs after my appointment. I was told I could also go to the OHSU cancer facility across the hall. There was an 87 minute wait upstairs, so I went to the OHSU office. I was told they didn't have doctor order for the blood draw, and I needed an appointment. I was hungry and not ready to watt 87 min, so I went back to the main Dr. office, told them my story (by now I'd wasted 25 minutes), and was told I could get my blood draw at any Legacy lab in the next few days. That would have been really nice to know as I was leaving my appointment, so that I didn't waste that time.

Dr. Winter & his staff are phenomenal. No one wants to see an oncologist but the man is the best if you have to. My insurance doesn't cover me to continue with him so I pay cash. He's worth it.

I was able to reach a doctor on call who directed me see Dr Winter the next day. I did and he immediately took action to have be hospitalized for port induced clot and nausea. I was so helped by my 2 day stay, I can't begin to express my gratitude.

I feel as though I was forgotten about while waiting in the exam room for the doctor. He did not come in to see me until AN HOUR past my appointment time. It was especially frustrating because I had my young son with me. I feel like that is disrespectful of my time.

I really appreciated that Dr. Winter allowed a limited informed consent (I limited my consent about what could be done in the upcoming surgery) even though he doubtless wished I had not restricted consent in the way I did. He was respectful.
