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

Dr. Koehler is my family physician. He was on vacation when I asked for an appointment about a [detail deleted to protect privacy]. The appointment was made with Dr. Saunders, another physician working in the clinic. I was pleasantly surprised by Dr. Saunders' very friendly and open attitude toward me, since I'm not one of his usual patients. He did not hurry me through the session. He offered lots of insight, carefully explaining all details as he proceeded. At the end, he offered several suggestions as to how I might remedy the problem, giving me latitude of choice rather than presuming the best route to ameliorating this particular health issue. Dr. Saunders is an exceptional GP.

I doubt I would seek medical advice if I didn't see Dr Saunders. I am so nervous and distrustful of people that getting help is very difficult. He is so kind and respectful. I care about his thoughts and advice because when he talks he makes sense and slowly chips away at my fears. He is, for me, the best kind of help. Patient. It can't be easy, but he is consistent with his words. It's helped me to trust him.

I would have to say that during any of my visits to Doctor Saunders there have been absolutely no bad experiences. He always explains things and makes sure that I understand his answers to my questions. He is always pleasant and it is obvious that he takes his patients' best interests and health to heart. I feel very lucky to have Doctor Saunders as my PCP.

I deal with having RA, which I have had for many years. With that comes some appointments where I am a little grouchy and get upset as it is hard to have other issues on top of what I deal with on a daily basis. Dr Saunders understands that and does not judge me for being at time a little more emotional . He listens to me without judging and he really listens to how I am feeling, not what he thinks I am feeling. This is more rare than you would think. I have had quite a few appointments at the Vancouver Clinic dealing with effects of my RA, Legacy is so beyond the Vancouver Clinic in their care and treatment of their patients. I am phasing out the Vancouver Clinic and will be working with Dr Saunders more to help me find someone that can take over my RA care. He has already looked into this for me and I look forward to my next appointment to discuss moving forward with the best care for me.

I moved 45 minutes for Dr Saunders 4 years ago, but always go to him as he is the only Dr. i have ever had that made me feel comfortable and talked to me in terms anyone could understand. He will always be my Doctor as long as I am able to drive to see him. He has offered to recommend someone in my area so I wouldn't have to drive so far, but when you find a Dr. that makes you feel confident in his abilities there is no way I would switch.

Dr Saunders was thorough, and took the time to review the chart before meeting us (filling in for Muzik) and took the time to ask a lot of questions AND listen to the answers. My dad [name and age deleted] - he has some level of dementia. Dr Saunders asked him about questions about his life, and let him speak. He was kind, and we left feeling well cared for!

I have been seeing Dr. Saunders for 12+ years, even before he was practicing at the Legacy Fisher's Landing clinic, and I followed him to this clinic due to my utmost trust and respect for him as my doctor and a person. I have recommended Dr. Saunders to many friends and family members. I consider Dr. Saunders a crucial member of my medical team that has taken care of me over the past few years in overseeing my health that has contributed to me I still here to compose this review. This should be shared with the entire Legacy Fisher's Land staff as I consider them all medical providers and I thank them all very much.
