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 really like Mindy, she is always patient with me when I have a bunch of questions and she will address each and every one of them taking all the time I want. I'm lucky to have her for my doctor.

This was my first visit with Mindy so some of the questions on the survey were not relavant. I brought my records with me so obviously she hadn't gotten to read them. However, Mindy covered a lot of ground during that visit. I was impressed.

recovering from renal failure. Mindy has been very considerate with my concerns. The first week off dialysis I developed a UTI, your staff has been wonderful in helping me to get this under control and not letting it get into the kidneys.

I was very thankful the office was able to fit me in for suture removal, even though I hadn't had the original surgery at that office, and I was thankful that Mindy was able to refill my (just expired) thyroid medicine for one more month, while I wait to meet my new doctor in [location deleted], Oregon, where I am now living.

Mindy Harrington is probably the best general provider I have seen in the last 3 yeas. She gave me the best medicare wellness check up I have had in a long time. She has agreed to become my primary and I look forward to seeing her for years to come.

I waited for 45 min before I asked how much longer it would be. Mindy was over 50 minutes late for my appointment. sh did not come in and apologize and I didn't feel heard or like she cared about the reason for my visit. Very frustrating. I requested to see another doctor that both my Mom and daughter see. I won't be back to this clinic for my own needs unfortunately

I like Dr. Harrington and her staff. They are not only friendly, but are friendly in an authentic way. They do not come across as artificial. This visit is probably the first visit I have had, where I didn't need to wait for (considerably) longer than 15 minutes for my appointment. Had this appointment been as late as the previous ones, I would probably be looking for a different provider. To be clear, I do like her. But just like she has other appointments to tend to, I have other things in my day as well. Other than punctuality, all is good at this office.

I had a 7:20 AM appointment with Mindy Harrington on [date deleted]. I was brought back to the room at 7:25 am. The medical assistant spent about 5-7 minutes with me. I then waited 25 minutes for Mindy to arrive. The medical assistant NEVER came in to update me on where Mindy was. I had to ask her at 7:45 AM where Mindy was and she shrugged her shoulders said "stuck in traffic". This is UNACCEPTABLE! I made the appointment at 7:20 with the idea of leaving at 8 AM to be at work by 8:30 AM. I was 15 minutes late. I don't understand why there isn't any respect for my time. I respect other people's time and was there on time for the appointment. I specifically made the first appointment of the day so that I would not be late because someone before was late for their appointment. This happens almost EVERY time I make an appointment at Legacy Firwood. The medical assistant does their thing and then I end up waiting for the doctor. I think I will have at least 30 minutes of a 40 minute appointment with the doctor, but it ends up being a rushed 5-10 minutes. This is not right!

This is in regard to the survey. You do not address the fact that MY HEALTH online communication with the DR happens. I only email the DR with the MY HEALTH format, and do not CALL ON THE PHONE. It has worked very well for me and the DR. But this survey doesn't account for that information.

Mindy is always very thoughtful in her interactions with me, she understands my life choices (vegetarian, prefer homeopathic remedies to pharmaceuticals when possible) and gives thorough and comprehensive information on my options for treatments and therapies. She never seems rushed or in a hurry for the visit to end, and she makes sure all my concerns and questions are addressed. She is an awesome PCP!

I was very unhapppy with my visit. I was the last patient of the day and she seemed rushed and ready to leave on a vacation. I had complained about pain in my breast, though it might be swollen glands. She started her very short painful exam on the wrong breast, told me I had a large mass and sent me for 3D exrays and ultra sounds on both breasts. Needless to say there was no mass, it was my glands... as I has suspected. The radiologist did not understand why she said I had a large mass. Anyway, this is going to cost me $$$ because my deductible was not paid yet. I will not see her ever again.

The more I see Mindy and we get to know each other better, I like her more and more. She is very friendly and helpful and she even very politely chewed me out for not calling her when I was referred for therapy and didn't get in quick enough. She said to let her know if anything like that happens again so she can get on it and get me in quicker. That was neat and made me feel really good.

Ms. Harrington is obviously overworked and overscheduled. The lapse in service is not her doing but rather attributable to the administration of the clinic. Ms. Harrington was occupied with typing on the computer and did not give me her complete attention. At one point I stopped in the middle of a sentence and she was so busy on her keyboard that she hadn't realized this until some time later when she was finished typing. She asked if I minded if she typed and I said yes. By her body language I could tell that she was discomfited by this response and then gave me her attention. However later during our time together she lapsed into working on the computer again. The digital probe part of the prostate screening was not done well. I had explained to Ms. Harrington that nodules had been revealed in a previous exam and followed up by a biopsy which was negative. After merely beginning the probe she palpated a nodule on the prostate and did no more. She then said that I should see a urologist. I have had perhaps 20 digital prostate screenings. As it has been explained to me, the entire prostate should be examined for masses. This was not done. It was as if Ms. Harrington was searching for justification to farm me out to a specialist and that concluded her responsibility to me. Further, I was not screened for skin cancer. This is standard in previous routine exams I have had for some time. It is my understanding that my insurance coverage allows me to consult with a health care provider for routine matters only once a year. These appointments are extremely important to me. Ms. Harrington obviously has the requisite personal skills and bearing of a competent health care provider. However administrative overscheduling is clearly impairing her ability to provide the kind of service that Legacy represents that it gives.

Good experience. Mindy is great. One thing though...I am a RN at a legacy hospital and have probably heard it all and probably have said things I shouldn't but to hear it from a patient perspective is certainly different. I was walking to the lab to get blood drawn and heard people in the hall talking about a pt's dirty feet and how they wouldn't do a foot exam on that pt. Now I understand but it certainly made me more aware of my own conduct at times and to be more aware of where I'm having conversation about pt's. Just food for thought.
