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

It was helpful that I received a referral for cardiac condition monitoring, which I asked for, and was only indirectly associated with the condition for which I had the routine exam.

I'm embarrassed to admit that I look forward to my appointments with my transplant team headed by Dr. Batiuk and Dr. Bennett. The whole team (the receptionists, nurses, doctors, social workers, pharmacists ...etc.) is outstanding. They are all very good at what they do but, to my mind at least, that is only the baseline requirement. What truly sets them apart is that in addition to that, they are friendly, smart, competent, empathetic and compassionate. My visits with the team are always uplifting. They take their time going through test results, explaining things, taking notes on how I've been doing since the last visit ...etc. I never feel rushed - like my 15 minutes are up and I am getting swept out of there in a hurry. I always come out having learned something and feeling like I'm in good hands. Interactions are light hearted and relaxed. This is why I love my translpant team and I'm grateful to them.

when I need help, even if I live in a different state the legacy kidney transplant team is very organized and gets back to me in an extremely short time. I've been having problems finding a decent healthcare provider in [location deleted] since my husband and I moved, and since I have [diagnosis deleted], a new kidney, and a multitude of other issues, I have had some anxiety since I haven't found good enough help. I had the appointment with Dr. Batuik, and he knew of someone in my area that would set me up with an array of new doctors that help complicated cases, such as myself. dr. batuik also helped out immediately with a situation regarding my medications that were causing trouble. I know that every time I see either Batuik or Bennett, I will always get the medical attention I need, to make my life better. I feel safe in the care of this medical team's hands.
