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

Just like always, my visit with Doctor Lowder made me feel how truly blessed I am to have him as my primary care doctor. I can not thing of anything at all that he could do better for me. I also hope that I will always be lucky enough to have him as my doctor....that comes straight from my heart!

I love this cliinic.. not that I enjoy having to see the Dr's but if I do.. it's nice to know that I have a place to go where the professionals are...well... professional, courteous, and always helpful and polite. I would recommend this clinic to anyone I care about. It's the best one I've been to and my husband agrees with me on this one.

The only complaint I have is I was not told to fast before this visit. As a result I have to return next week, fasting, in order to receive two other required tests.

Dr. Lowder has been my GP for fifteen years and I can't imagine going to anyone else. He always greets me with a smile and a handshake. His first question is always "how are you today?" and genuinely cares about how my family and I are doing. He never makes you feel rushed no matter how busy he is, always taking his time to answer any questions I have. He treats everyone equally, with respect and dignity, a trait that's hard to find in people today.

I felt that my visit was fairly complete for an in-take visit. I had a follow up to a recent injury as well as other health matters to discuss. I felt that Dr. Lowder was attentive and personable. I definitely felt that I was in good care.

I've been with Dr. Lowder for only a short period of time. I've referred people to him and they tell me how they really like him also. He doesn't make me feel stupid for asking what I think are silly questions and gives various options to choose from for ways of treating me, rather than automatically jumping to the most expensive choice. He lets me choose how I want to be treated.

I TOTALLY trust Dr. Lowder with all medical problems. He litterly saved my life when he suspected cancer and immediately sent me to a doctor who did a biopsy. He's been my doctor for several years and and my hope is that I will be lucky enough to have him the rest of my life. He is wonderful and very professional too.

This being my second visit to my new primary doctor, I actually felt a sense of relief that I finally have a doctor I can speak with who cares and hears what I am saying. Perhaps, I will be able to relax better in future visits. I will no longer AVOID visits in the future. Good or bad news. Exceptional Care thank you

Doctor Tad Lowder and all his Nurses are great. The front desk receptionist (check in) ladies I've dealt with don't seem to smile much and I get the feeling that they don't care for their job. I'm also a jokester and it could be that they just don't like me... At the end of the day, Doctor Lowder is great and I like the way he treats me and his staff. TH, DC

Love the Legacy clinic and Dr. Lowder, I especially appreciate how they send my prescriptions including my methadone prescriptions directly to my pharmacy saving me the hassle of having to go pick up the prescription from the clinic as other clinic facilities and doctors have forced me to do in the past. Dr.Lowder/Legacy clinic has always been terrific at getting my prescriptions sent to the pharmacy on time with the exception of a couple recent months. so I had to call this last month to make sure my prescriptions would be on time this last month. Hopefully things will get back where I don't have to double check if this prescription is on time since this could be a life threatening situation going without my methadone at anytime could cause a stroke or heart attack and the withdrawals alone are bad enough to deal with as it is! hopefully whatever the problem was for those couple months is resolved now, I counting on it!
