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

It is refreshing to find a doctor, such as Douglas Beers, who has an amazing bedside manner, in that he truly listens, shows compassion, and sincerely puts himself out there in offering himself and his services for any future questions or contact that may be deemed necessary. It's admirable.

Dr Beers ordered an "echo" test and on departure his office staff said the "echo" dept. would call me to schedule it. they didn't call that day nor the next.I called Dr. Beers office the following afternoon and told them and they gave me the number to tocallthem direct eventually the "echo" dept.returned my call,and made an appt. with me. It seemed very inefficient.

I'm not sure if I misread the "past 3 months" correctly - this was the only visit this year and the only one for over six months. The services provided were just fine. Would have appreciated a heads up on the cost of the prescription - a bit steep but effective and appreciated.

The new receptionist was really wonderful. Dr Beers had reviewed my medical history and my latest test results before my appointment. He gave me his full attention, his time and his expertise generously. There are many reasons that I have been his patient for 15 years. He is particularly well-versed in my constellation of illnesses and always stays current with changing treatments and protocol. Dr. Beers has saved my life several times. Under his care, I have already outlived most patients with my diagnoses, It is likely that I will live far longer than I ever thought possible. That is amazing and so is Dr. Beers!

I want to give an additional shoutout to the wonderful lab person who did my blood test, Amanda (she is blonde with tattoos if that helps). I am usually really awful at getting blood drawn and she did it so efficiently and her demeanor helped distract and put me at ease so it was probably the best experience I've had getting blood drawn in my entire life. Super quick and painless, and I really cannot overstate how terrible I am at blood draws and how much I dread them. So this was a great experience.

He and his team set the bar far above all others. They truly define excellence in health care. Simply put, if you are broken in any way he will quickly fix you in a kind compassionate and well informed manner. He is a wonderful human being and you'll instantly have no doubts that you are in the best hands possible.

Dr. Beers has been my physician since [name and location deleted to protect privacy]. I came from a family which has many physicians in it and so while growing up I was spoiled when it came to getting the best and most prompt medical care. Without reservation, Dr. Beers is a phenomenal diagnostician, and I could not have a better doctor or friend. There are no words to describe the excellent care I have had with him. Legacy Health Care system is fortunate to have him. I have routinely referred people to him from both Oregon and Washington.

Dr. Beers is terrific at what he does--both clinically and personally (I've appreciated how he has led me through a thought process for making some decisions). On the other hand, whoever does the scheduling needs to work on her relating skills. I referred a family member to Dr. Beers and she/they threw up roadblocks on two successive days. That was almost enough to give up on the clinic.

I love Dr. Beers, he is respectful, intelligent, friendly, compassionate and really spends time needed with his patients. I did have to wait 45 minutes in the room before he was able to see me because he takes the time he needs with his patients, wondering if maybe the office should schedule less appointments or give him more time so that we don't have to wait. As a working mom my time is really precious and scheduled tightly, it is difficult to devote so much time to waiting and hard to schedule my day when I don't know how long the appointment is going to be.

the following day after testing the urine specimen I provided, Dr, Beers personally phoned me to say there were cells present that indicated I needed an antibiotic to be taken three times a day until gone. I've done that and do feel better. his knowledge always amazes me, and I just hope he doesn't retire during the few years I have left. I'd recommend him to anyone.

I called one of DR. Beer's nurses, Julie, she listened to me and believed that I needed swift attention. She found me a time for an afternoon appointment (a cancellation) the same day. I generally used myhealth for questions, but I know to call if there is an immediate concern. Dr. Beers diagnosed my condition as [diagnosis deleted to protect privacy] and talked to me about my need to wear compression hose even when I don't have swelling. He explained that I have good blood supply to my legs but little capacity for the blood to be returned to my heart. Because I suffer from arthritis in my hands, conventional compression hose are a battle to put on and take off Dr Beers recommended a compression garment that has velcro closures. Ugly as sin, but easy to put on and take off. I start a course of antibiotics today. Dr Beers asked me to keep him apprised of any change in my condition. I know that his concern for my health is not feigned, he is genuinely interested in my welfare.

My only complaint is that I haven't received a reply to my latest MyHealth note to the doctor. Perhaps the system was down or my E-Mailbox didn't receive a note. It's also possible that the doctor was out of the office. In that case, it would be helpful to have an "autoreply" message letting me know. Other than that, I have been very satisfied with the clinic in recent times.

Dr. Beers demonstrates a genuine regard for me as a person and not just a patient with a pile of problems. In a time when medical care seems to be dominated by technology and a mania for "efficiency," Dr. Beers' quiet presence and open demeanor gives me the confidence that I'm being cared for in a holistic manner.
