Dr Budesa and Jason, her MA are always excellent. The lab tech made me wait 20+ minutes for a simple blood draw. I was the only patient there. She was irritated when I asked how much longer it would be after 20 minute wait. [details deleted to protect privacy] 1st time I've ever been treated rudely there. I didn't leave with a good feeling.

Because I am a new patient to Legacy and Dr Budesa, I quickly assessed the professionalism of your practice in contrast to former health clinics - give it an A+ based on: friendliness, cleanliness, knowledgeable staff, efficiency (some wait times exceeded 1 1/2 hr!), and just a pleasing first impression all the way around. Since this was a wellness exam and follow-up, I haven't any prior history, but most of all, she regarded me as a human being, I did not feel profiled or judged (chronic pain stigma); rather, she listened, she asked good questions, and she treated me with respect. Since her help with a different condition, she was able to relieve it. I look forward to staying with her practice for years to come.

Dr. Marie Budesa saw me when my primary doctor, Dr. Nicholson, was not available. I had an infected finger that needed immediate attention. She gave very good care and while I waited she contacted a hand surgeon to see me the very next day to take care of the problem. I was very impressed with Dr. Budesa and am considering her as my primary care doctor since Dr. Nicholson is retiring.

Visit with Dr was great and very helpful. I'm not sure if my health email system is thrbmost effective way to get answers back from the Dr. I emailed several follow up questions for Dr. regarding my blood tests with the my health system. Still waiting for a response. Having good access to the Dr for follow up questions is important to me.

I truly appreciate the promptness and accessibility I experience at Firwood. At some medical offices it's difficult to get in to see your provider, and this is not something I've experienced with Dr. Budesa's office. She's accessible, listens and responds to questions and concerns in a manner that ensures my comfort and understanding. I appreciate this clinic and my provider very much! Oh, and her assistant Josh is wonderful. He's always friendly and makes my visits comfortable and non-stressful. Very knowledgable too!

I had used Legacy Firwood Clinic previously, then my company went to another insurance. I was glad to be able to return. I was establishing myself with Marie as a new patient. I found her very through and she even helped elevate a problem that has been plaguing me for several years. I was very impressed and thankful!

I have referred many friends to it over the years. With the lab and x-rays right there, it is very convenient for me. I don't always have to go somewhere else for these basic services.

I am happy with my selection of Dr. Budesa to be my primary physician. I relocated my residence and found it farther to drive than I wanted. I did research three clinics in this area and I was drawn to the Firwood Clinic. I was looking for a female doctor and just blindly selected Dr. Budesa. They are polite and helpful and always provide whatever I need. She and her assistant are very helpful. I am happy with my choice, I feel I will always get the care I need.

I would like the doctor to understand more about financial. Not every patient can afford what she offers. She wants to give medications when not needed. My Cholesterol numbers in her words are great yet she wants to put me on medication which makes no sense. The reason she said is new findings say it should go off of your age. I declined due to my numbers being great and cost
