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

Saw this doctor to look at my current heart problems and if anything should be done. He was very thorough and listened well. His assistant Jaime also very helpful.

When I called about this upcoming appointment, a front office person [name deleted to protect privacy] quizzed me about and scolded me for changing physicians, which I didn't appreciate. My reasons were none of her business and her attitude was very demeaning.

I waited for two hours to see a provider. when they finally came in, they asked if I wanted to cancel or see a nurse practitioner at some indeterminate timeframe. I chose to go because I had just taken two hours of my day and was already late to other appointments.

Care could not be better; however, waiting time can be a little long because of a heavy load of patients, or some kind of emergency.

I answered "No" to question in re wait time, because of unavoidable delay at office due to bad weather conditions that morning.

I'm very happy with Dr. Peizner as my new cardiologist for monitoring a condition. He's pleasant and caring an lived up to his advance billing from my PCP. The rest of the office has been a dismal experience, though. When I first called to make an appointment, it felt like the person answering the phone was throwing up a roadblock instead of trying to help. At best, she needed training on communication skills. She told me that I needed a referral; under my health plan, I don't; plus I'd been referred by both my PCP and Legacy Referral Services. Strike one. Then it was difficult dealing with one of the medical assistants. Aside from being somewhat rude to my spouse when she called, my original request for collecting my history wasn't taken care of. I wanted Dr Peizner to have all the background on my tests of the condition we've been monitoring. Surely with two months notice they could have pulled those together from two prior cardiologists. Plus there was no problem-solving when I asked to have an ultrasound run prior to my visit so we wouldn't have to do one visit to consult and another to review test results. I finally went back to my PCP to place the order (his office was more helpful). On a slightly brighter note, there was one guy in the front office who took one of my phone calls who seemed to be on top of things and had a good phone manner. Promote him and retrain the others. If the recommendation for Dr. Peizner hadn't been so glowing, I might have given up on the office.

A cardiologist is frequently required to deal with unforeseen emergency situations; in fact, in the past, I personally have been involved in several instances when Dr Peizner had to depart from his regular schedule to help me deal with an emergency. A similar situation concerning one of his other patients occurred at the time of my routine appointment, and Dr Peizner found it necessary to delay my appointment and others to respond to it. I fully understand the necessity for this, and appreciate the fact that he was able to see me within a couple of hours on that same day. All in all, I am quite satisfied with the outcome of this situation.

Dr. Peizner's Nurse, Jen (Stafford)? Was exceptionally kind and helpful and even paid me a post-op visit in my hospital room. She gets a "10"!

I have absolutely no complaints about my experiences w/Legacy Health Care. Without you and the Oregon Health care plan I'd have nothing. Dr. Peizner saved my life (with ambulance crew etc.). For this I have unlimited gratitude and respect. I cannot imagine feeling otherwise and thank you very much.

While Dr. Peizner had an emergency unfolding that seemed he'd need to take care of at the ER while my appointment was in progress, he was still very attentive and patient with me and my questions. I thought that indicated a competent physician who cared for each of his patients. As a new patient, I was also impressed with how thoroughly he reviewed my heart history before he entered the room.

I especially appreciated Dr. Peizner's willingness to refer me to a provider with another specialization, since my issue is outside of his expertise. I respect professionals who are able to say "I don't know."

I am blind so it is always interesting for me to observe my experiences in new situations. I was very pleased with how I was treated at Legacy Health. I called and asked if someone could meet me at the security desk and a very nice lady came down and escorted me up to the doctor's office. The same lady escorted me back to the lobby after my appointment. The staff was very courteous, and Dr. Peizner was nice. I had a very good experience.

This appointment was a referral From Dr Rosenbaum, and Dr Urbach. Dr Peizner was to review the echo I had after my [diagnosis deleted] to determine what should be done with my [diagnosis deleted]. Dr Peizner appeared to have no idea at all what was going on, and STILL needed to consult with the other Doctors before he could respond to, or answer any questions. I'm not really sure who to blame for this. It turned out to be a waste of time for me and mom to come to this appointment to only hear what we heard from Dr Rosenbaum... "we need to consult, and get back to you." It is so difficult to answer family questions, let alone my own, from an appointment that you were supposed to get answers from, to hear "we need to consult, and get back to you"

My cardiologist retired so I was referred to Dr. Peizner. He was excellent in establishing my needs, explaining my options of making sure my 1 remaining carotid is healthy. Gave tests I'd never had & also had me consult a vascular specialist. Am grateful & impressed with the service & care.

Finally saw MD on third visit to office. On two previously scheduled visits, doctor was called away for last minute emergencies. Those things, happen. Rescheduling was done in a timely manner, but only because there were times available due to cancellations.

I failed to remember about my medication instructions, so wrote in on MyHealth, then realized it would be on the printout summary of Visit. My wife had taken charge of it and I wished I had one of my own. They show I should still be taking Metformin, but I do seem to remember it was canceled.

I found Dr. Peizner an amazingly good listener. He waited to see what concerns I would mention, and then addressed each one. He is a kind physician and I appreciated his time and interest very much. We are in process of dealing with various medical questions. He was thorough, and had read my record prior to arrival so no time was wasted on information he already had seen. We need more physicians such as Dr. Peizner.

I like Dr. Peizner, he is my cardiologist I had to go to him because my regular providers have been negligent in their care, concerns and prescribing of medication. I should have gone to Dr. Peizner first. the quality of care at regular providers office has plummeted in quality, concern, knowledge and have made me lose confidence in Emanuel care. Emanuel used to be such a high quality healthcare organization. might as well be an LA County Hospital. Disgraceful!
