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

All good. The survey asks if staff followed up to inform me of lab results. Although my answer is no, the results have always been easily accessible thru the patient portal. This survey question, as currently structured, does a dis-service to the provider.

Val has helped me to lose the weight I needed to lose to have very serious surgery. She has helped me to be able to reduce some of my meds and is always very respectful to my needs. Val always has a smile and seems to be interested in not just your progress but how I am feeling. Great doctor we need more like her.

This was a 1 year follow appointment following my gastric Bypass, Dr. Halpin is not my primary physician, so some of the questions do not apply.

it is a shame that I need to lose weight to have surgery but when I turned this bill into Pacific Health they refused to pay for treatment. I am out due to a work injury and can not find good treatment from my Legacy family. Val is a wonderful doctor and practice but I think many will not go to the clinic due to the insurance part of it. I have a lap band done by Legacy but am not supposed to have the follow-up care I guess.

Dr. Halpin and her team were wonderful. They helped me get from referral to surgery with lots of support and assistance. She was great at explaining things and helping me to understand everything about the choice I wanted to make. She was also really supportive and understanding throughout the process and I felt like a valued part of the healthcare team.
