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

There were a lot of people out unexpectedly so that is why the wait was longer than usual. They apologized for the wait and provided the same care I count on even though they were short handed. I chose this group because I believe they are better than my other options for preventative and proactive care.

I originally went to this office to see Dr. Ramos, and I did see her 2 or 3 times, but I was passed on to Dr Walker when Dr Ramos' restricted her office hours. I still feel that Dr Walker does a good job as my primary care provider, and trust that whenever necessary he will refer me to a specialist as well as consult with Dr Ramos, and my coronary care provider, [name deleted to protect privacy]

I am always treated in the best way by Dr. Walker and his staff. I wouldn't go anywhere else for primary care. They take special interests in my conditions. Always explain things that I understand. Take into consideration that I am hearing impaired and speak where I can hear and understand them.

In the past it was sometimes difficult to get an appointment,but lately it has changed,so I feel much more reassured that my doctor will be available when I'm sick

Dr Walker was thorough and explained the solutions he thinks will help my bronchial condition improve. He prescribed medications and advised me to check in if my condition didn't improve.

The visit was as always, good. I feel treated as a person, not a number on a chart. Can't do better than that. All the personal at MT. Angel Family Clinic are considerate and polite. It is a good place.

my doctor was more than thorough. my doctor always makes sure to get all the information about my health & he always checks my medication list so that I am not going to get the wrong medication. His nurse or assistant is always friendly, & professional, & and has a great sense of humor.

you would think that the medical records from Silverton Health Group, purchased by Legacy, would have been transferred to the legacy system. No instead the Dr was forced to spend time looking for medical history. I am on Medicare due to a disability. old records reflect this fact, when I became disabled, when I first visited Dr Walker, when Medicare became available to me. these are a matter of record that you already have in your files. three times in one visit filling out the same forms with the same questions that you already have answers for. Medicare doesn't need to know this stuff they are already a matter of record there. honesty should be practiced by Legacy. you have the records spend the time to transfer them

I didn't know how long I was in your office, I didn't have a watch with me. A large clock in the waiting room would help. It didn't seem long. It seem really fast.

I had a bad experience with your survey asking me about my ethnicity or race. I know you are trying to gather statistics, but there was no option for "prefer not to answer". Please update your questions to be in line with other providers. You already know what I am since you verified who I am when I am taking the survey so the question is really unnecessary. Doctor Walker is the reason I go here for primary care. He is great and very respectful and attentive. He always attends to all of my needs and offers many options and suggestions to my questions.

on this last visit MD was almost 1 hour behind & then tried to rush me through appointment because I was his last appointment - as this is typical scenero for him. he even told me that I would need to make another appointment to address my b/p of 140/100 because he didn't have time.... to which I told him that I didn't have time to have a stroke so he better deal with it - we finally came to an agreement that I would take my prn b/p meds if it went up. Then sent me to a neurologist to follow up on s/sx of fibromyalgia - which she told me a rheumatologist needed to assess. still waiting for that referral & will probably have to call to follow up as usual... with a normal holding time of up to 15 min each time you call that office (if you're lucky).... maybe their fax will also be fixed by them (as pharmacy/hospital make a joke about issues to expect with Dr. Walker).... very frustrating & i'm very thankful i'm a nurse & not afraid to confront him on things that are against my pt bill of rights! still looking for another provider that's local... igh

Check in time has become very long. There is a line of people waiting, and if you need to sit during that time someone can come in front of you unknowingly. My provider often cuts me off before I have finished telling him something. So much time is spent looking for things on his computer.Therefore he doesn't actually just look at me when he and I are talking. I understand the process and needing to look things up, but the computer screen seems to be in the way. I was a medical assistant many years ago before all the digital technology. My employer told me, "doctors don't really look at their patients". I understood that to mean, looking them in the eye, observing their mannerisms, look at their hands, their ankles, everything. I don't mean to examine, just observe during conversation. Know something about them. I see many doctors, as my health is complicated and I feel like they are looking at their little piece of real estate and forgetting the whole person sometimes. Dr Walker is very competent, this is just an overall commentary and observation of what a patient encounters these days because of specialties and tests and technology. Sorry to go on so long.

at my appointment my provider was 45 min late & then told me I was his last appointment of day & he could only cover 3 things. anything more & i'd have to reschedule. he also didn't listen to what I said & I had to repeat myself 3x for him to get information correct - maybe it's because he kept looking at his watch & verbalising if it was his wife who was texting him... I don't know. but this is typical for a visit with him. I did, however, get everything I came to see him about addressed (I didn't think asking for my lab results should require me to make another appointment - right?) This is why I always wait to make an appointment until I can't put something off anymore

My only bad comment concerns the phone messages when one calls in for an appt. or question. It takes forever to get to where you can speak with someone.

I checked into the office and spoke with a receptionist named [name deleted to protect privacy]. I got my log in information from her and then sat for ever. I asked her 3 times when was it my turn as people were coming and going except me for the same provider. I didn't get to see Dr. Walker until I had sat for over and hour and a half. When I got there, Dr. Walker informed me that [she] had not even checked me in and he did not know I was there. I have been seeing Dr. Walker for years and always have been treated with the upmost respect. He was visibly upset that this [she] left me sitting and never checked to see if she had put me in the system. [Personal information deleted to protect privacy]

Dr. Walker and his assistants are usually very good at welcoming you while at your appointment. If I leave a message for him to contact me, he usually does and sometimes it is after 5 pm when he gets to me. Even if it is after 5, he does not act like I am bothering him. He is good at answering my questions and concerns no matter what time he calls.

The STEPS program at the hospital in Silverton asked me to check with the doctor about what to get for the rash and got two blood tests and a chest xray. And then had to ask again for something for my arms.

As I was an unfamiliar patient Dr. Walker spent a great deal of time familiarizing himself with my various conditions, medications, etc. Very impressed with his effort. This is how doctors get behind in their scheduled appointments.
