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

I have always felt well taken care of when I come to Legacy for medical care. The staff is courteous and Jodi is very easy to talk to. I feel she listens and is willing to work with me and listen to what I feel.

I had a good visit with Jodi and we discussed the current issues and when to schedule another appointment. Also reordered prescriptions for current issues and continued monitoring other issues and natural remedies for them.

I asked for a blind weight since I have had an eating disorder and find it triggering to see my weight. The post-appointment summary sheet had my weight printed on the front page, and I saw it as soon as it was handed to me. This has happened multiple times, and my mom has even called to complain. This is frustrating as I am in the process of recovery.

The medical assistants that worked with Jodi were awesome. I really appreciated their customer service and ability to make something that wasn't comfortable, more comfortable. The only problem I had with the visit was finding the clinic. On the map they send out to new patients (this was my first visit) it doesn't say that they are on the 4th floor. Adding that to the map would be helpful. The staff was very understanding of my slight tardiness but having complete directions would have prevented that.

I have concern that reception and or office clerical staff are delegated to prioritize care through appointment scheduling. They are not clinicians and I expect have very little formal training about the level of care required to treat a patient's described condition when calling to schedule an appointment. I called concerned about a condition effecting my eye. I described (Wednesday) that I was concerned about damaged to my vision as a result of what appeared to be an infection. I was provided an appointment 2 days later (Friday). This is an administration issue. What level of training do the reception staff have which legitimately allows them to effectively prioritize care? Is it appropriate that availability of care via scheduling appears to be first come first served? If this is the case and I need to prioritize my own care by selecting a more immediately available clinician through either and urgent care facility or emergency room facility how should I as a patient expect continuity with my primary care provider? I recommend administration evaluate the system for the prioritization of care and ensure this task is performed by qualified personnel. Please perform this evaluation through the filter of care for the patient rather than efficient implementation of the business model.

I saw Jodi Houghton for the first time as a new primary care provider. She was excellent and has ideas and suggestions to improve my health. She ordered blood work right away and called the very next day with results. She actually cares about her patients and is knowledgable and is more than happy to refer to specialists. I am looking forward to having her as my primary care Dr.

I've been coming to Legacy for a little over 5 years and started seeing Jodi Houghton at that time! I can say nothing but good things about her and the staff! I haven't needed to see her a lot, but she is always pleasant, professional and very concerned with whatever my issues are! I'm lucky to have found Legacy and Jodi!

The provider seemed a bit rushed. But, I am a RN so often times people - assume I know everything. I don't. Nurses can be difficult patients sometimes. My visit focused on my emotional health, so maybe I just needed a little more time to discuss my S. A. D. I am better now. Thank you.

I was asked the same repeated questions by 4 different people and it was clear that none of them had bothered to read my chart. I was told I had to be screened for cervical cancer when a simple review of my chart would have explained that I had it surgically removed 15 years ago. The receptionist tried to get me to pay for a bill that was non-existent. And there was an intern shadowing my doctor that took me by surprise and I should have not agreed to have in my appointment as it made me uncomfortable talking to two different people about my health concerns. Finally, I don't feel that my doctor took my concerns seriously and just wanted to prescribe medication.

I had a bulging disc while on vacation, Jodi saw me the first morning after I came home. She nailed the issue, prescribed a steroid, and I felt better almost immediately. She also sent me to PT which has been extremely helpful.

The nurse I met with initially was excellent. I loved her upbeat personality and professionalism. The Dr was very pleasant, listened carefully and explained things clearly. Since it was the first time we met I may be missing the mark on first impressions but she seemed either somewhat shy and introverted or possibly bored. Overall it was a satisfying first encounter.

My experience with Jodi was disappointing. The reaction to the health concern I had regarding sleep was met with a somewhat curt attitude. When I explained that I was a therapist and not only practiced good sleep hygiene, but also taught it - she said, "well, you seem legit but I am going to only prescribe you 20 pills a month and it is up to you to figure out how to make it work for the whole month. You can split 10 of the pills, or not take them for 10 days". I thought the statement and her tone was slightly condescending.
