I love my Doctors assistant Brie she is so very helpful. She gives me information and ask questions and if she is not sure she checks with Doctor and calls me back and she always calls me back. Steve at the reception desk took proper time to ask me if I had heard of the portal thing ? where I could make appointments and have communications with Brie/Doctor etc. He printed me out a paper to take with me and I intend to make good use of this service. Steve also seemed very conscience of me understanding everything. I really liked that. I also believe it or not enjoyed the ladies who took my blood. Very kind and comforting. Good experience for me. I do usually like to stay away from Doctors offices as much as possible. Believe my Doctor and staff care and are helping me stay healthy. Thank You

When I arrived I was the only person in line. There were 3 office personnel. They kept telling me just a moment we will be right with you. 5 minutes later one finally checked me in. They were talking about insurance billing and what code to enter or something of this topic. Why did it take 3 people to do this? Why couldn't someone have checked me in then go back to their discussion? I was the only one in line. Thankfully I was there for a physical and not sick.

you have to understand that this visit is an initial visit to find a competent internist that will take us on , because our PCP of 30 yrs has to close his practice. So, no there will be no blood work, prescriptions ordered, health records as that is in progress and this provider should not be penalized for my responses. Everyone was terrific. Dr. Lutze was terrific and we appreciated her patients.

The front office staff was more than excellent in making me feel welcome when I was frustrated already with doctors. I felt I was going to Dr. Lutze with the same complaint I tried to have dealt with 6 months prior, but was not heard since my tests returned "normal." My symptoms were still bad and getting worse! Finally, after my own research and being "pushy" on my part, I was given a referral for a specialist who may be able to get a proper diagnosis for my condition. I was reaffirmed regarding a diet change, but wish she would have been the one to suggest it for me. I had never heard of an autoimmune paleo diet but a friend told me about it when it should have been my doctor! No. Dr. Lutze just did the usual in prescribing me medicine that my body is not responding to after nearly 2 years. I went to another doctor outside of Legacy, but he wasn't any better. I would switch in a heartbeat if a friend is brave enough to recommend their doctor, but I haven't found one that happy with theirs either. Sad, but true.

This was a first, get-acquainted visit. We moved from the East Coast and did not have a doctor. This doctor had been recommended to us for follow up after my wife had to go to the Legacy Meridian Hospital ER. She did not have to go to see the doctor after leaving the hospital, but remembered her name, and so we scheduled appointments with her. I found her to be intelligent, well informed, receptive and a good listener. She made a plan to provide me a physical checkup and blood work. I was pleased with my visit.

This appointment was to establish a primary care and to get some health questions answered, which was done in the most professional and efficient way. I started with her Medical Assistant Bri- LOVED HER! I myself am a medical assistant, and so I appreciate her thoroughness with getting my vital signs and just listening to why I was there to begin with. She sympathizes with people and makes them feel comfortable as they voice their worries and concerns. And for Dr. Lutze, she is nothing short of smart, efficient, compassionate and has the best bedside manner. Well, it's nice to find a provider to establish your care with that you know will always have your best interest at heart. Thank you Bri & Thank you Dr. Lutze. See you soon,

Cara is a wonderful physician. If she is not sure about my condition, she is at the ready with a name of a specialist who has the answers. I went to her with a simple condition of severe fatigue and she didn't take it lightly, she ordered extensive blood testing and then sent me notices explaining the results. Her staff are friendly and professional. When I called last week with something, they worked around their schedule to take care of me.

We were very impressed with Dr Lutze. She LISTENED, did not speak over us and asked questions and LISTENED to my parents. Both are very hard of hearing and have trouble articulating. [diagnosis deleted to protect privacy] And we liked her competence and care taking care of elderly. We had a geriatric consult prior to the visit but Dr Lutze seemed comfortable taking over their care without multiple referrals for guidance. We felt comfortable with her standards of care. And we really like the CMA. She was respectful and had a good voice for elderly. She is fun and made them feel at ease. [comment deleted to protect privacy] We struck gold with Dr Lutze and her CMA who is much more professional.

Dr Lutze has always listened to my concerns and I have never felt like she has ever cut my appointment short. She is one of the best I have ever seen.

Dr. Lutze did the best she could considering the 20 minute rule. This rule results in two to ten appointments over a number of months which results in situations like Dr. Paquette's, where her next available appt. was in Jan. and I didn't want to wait that long for answers. Dr. Paquette once asked me to make a 40 min. appt. It was cut to 20 before I got there and couldn't cover needs.

This was my first visit with Dr. Lutze as I was changing primary care physicians. All of the staff I interacted with during my time at the medical office for my appointment were kind, friendly, and helpful. Even being a brand new patient, I felt cared for and that Dr. Lutze and Brianna were invested in getting to know me and my care needs during my appointment. It was a great visit!

This was my very first visit to Legacy Medical Group - Bridgeport and to Cara Lutze, MD, my new Internist. I was VERY impressed with Dr. Lutze and her Medical Assistant, Bri. I was also impressed with women at the front desk both when I first phoned to set up my appt. with Dr. Lutze, and when I met them in person when I had my appt. for my initial consultation with Dr. Lutze. I am [patient age omitted] yrs. old but was treated disrespectfully by the staff and by my former Internist where I used to go for medical treatment.

The nurse that did all of my vitals during my appointment was really friendly and comfortable to talk to. Best I have encountered anywhere. Especially for a 8 am appointment. She was Dr. Lutze's assistant. I really would like to give her high marks. Her manner and style are really outstanding.

Dr. Lutze is a kind attentive, physician. She is too tied to her computer at times. though. its hard to get in to see her as well. Legacy needs to provide more physicians for this busy clinic.

This year my Regence Med Adv + Rx Classic PPO in network copay for PCP is $10. The lady checking me in for the appointment told me the copay was $15. I showed her my insurance card again, she then claimed the computer stated it was $15. She asked another coworker about the fee and this lady told her that her computer indicated my copay was $10. My question is why was the first ladies computer stating incorrect information on my copay?

Dr. Lutze is only the second primary care doctor that I've had in the last 25 years. She and I are still getting to know each other. But so far I am very satisfied that she is capable, efficient, knowledgeable and especially a good listener. I think I will be well-cared-for by her.

This was by far the best - and most enjoyable! - experience I've ever had at a health facility. Steve at the front desk was wonderful, as was Dr. Lutze and her assistant. Dr. Lutze was incredibly attentive to my health concerns and ordered the right tests immediately. And she had a great bedside manner.

Doctor Lutze is a very caring person. She just never ran out a questions to help diagnois what I had to say. She is a very knowledgeable Doctor, and it shows that she cares. I appreciated how much time she spent with me, as I thought they only had 15 minutes with each client. Very positive, upbeat person.

It was overall good experience at the time of visit. Office assistant Bre is super helpful and she also go beyond extra mile giving some arts tasks to my kids( two monsters) while I was with doctor. It was great help for me. The only difficult part is to make an appointment with the provider. It takes almost a month to get an appointment. It is routine app, however, I wish to make app little earlier. But this provider is already booked. Kudos to medical assistant Bre

not enough employees. I waited 15 min. just to check in. And the receptionist didn't call for help. there was another lady sitting right behind the receptionist and she didn't get up and help. she got up out of her chair several times. she did see me, not real sure why she didn't just check me in. because of all of this my Dr. thought I was the one who was late. I don't appreciate that!

This was the 2nd visit to Cara Lutze my new primary care doctor. She is absolutely wonderful, she was able to look up past appointments even with other doctors at Providence. She was very helpful, she listened to my input and or concerns. I am very impressed with her and felt very good about my health condition when I left. The only issue I had was that the list of medications that I am allergic to had some how become jumbled up. The medications and there reactions were not matched up correctly, there were also duplicates of medications. The biggest problem is the medications they listed were by there medical name and not by the name on my prescription labels. I was able to give them a copy of all my medication I am currently taking. As well as a copy of all the medication I am allergic to so that the data entry person could update my records. This was an easy fix. I am very much looking forward to working with Dr. Lutze for many years to come. I have already recommended her to 2 of my friends.

I spent a long time finding a primary care provider as excellent as Dr. Lutze. I feel very blessed that I was able to find her and become a patient under her care. i feel I am in very good hands with Dr. Lutze. The care team at Legacy Bridgeport is also a fantastic, and efficient group of individuals that have been extremely helpful in coordinating my care, which at times can be very complex. I would recommend Dr. Lutze to my own family and anyone in need of an exceptionally caring, thorough, and respectful physician.
