Dr. Sen was very respectful and listened to my concerns. I appreciated that she initiated a conversation about my health history instead of taking what was in my chart at face value. The clinic was running late so I did have to wait past my appointment time.

Dr Sen did a good job of assessing my condition and recommending further steps to take if needed. Her advice to get lidocain patches to ease the pain aloowed me to get a good night's sleep. However recovery from a torn hamstring will take many weeks.

This is the first time I met with Dr. Sen. I wanted her to be my primary physician outside of the VA. She is the primary physician for my wife and my wife holds her in very high regard. She was very respectful, thorough in her questioning of the issues I am dealing with.

After finishing with Dr. Sen (who was very good) I was left waiting in the room for a copy of my paperwork for over 15 minutes (1:45 to 2:07). Wouldn't it make more sense to mail this as none of it was immediately necessary? Or to have a printer in the room so the Dr. could hand it over/ review it immediately?

I am a new patient. I was treated with respect as a patient with concerns and questions. Dr. Sen gave me all the answers I needed for my health problems. She helped me figure out what was needed to schedule all my x-rays and my blood test. I was impressed with her knowledge and very impressed with the way she treated me as a new patient. I would recommend her highly. My first visit as a patient was favorable.

This visit was a few days past an unscheduled visit to the hospital ER and was scheduled to follow up on the trip to the ER and follow-up hereafter. I usually see a different physician from this office who was out of the office for a few days. The office scheduled me to see this doctor who was available. I much appreciated getting to see her on short notice because I needed advice on how to proceed with my recovery from two broken ribs which was the reason I had visited the ER. This physician had the results from my visit to the ER, and answered all my concerns.

I feel she did not take my concerns seriously. I took out my phone to show her an article supporting what I was discussing and she accused me of recording our conversation in a very paranoid sort of way. Are you our conversation she demanded twice. No I replied. She is paranoid and suspicious, not a good listener and I will never see her again.

You MUST ASK if you called or sent a message to this office in the last week or what ever. I don't usually call. I send a message through my chart.....you don't ask about that. Many patients don't call anymore because they can do it through their chart. You are not getting complete or accurate information without knowing if they contact through the chart or make a phone call.

I was concerned as I had missed an appointment with the Cardiologiist and had to change to a new one. Dr. Sen arranged for an appointment with a new one and I will see him on [date deleted to protect privacy] if all goes well. Dr Sen ordered the blood test I wanted and mailed the results to me. I know I am a difficult patient, but Dr. Sen has been very patient with me and I am well pleased with her.

the delay in getting follow up appointments is ridiculous- so far I have heard from one of three recommended calls appointment sources and that appointment is a month out. I have not heard from the other two. it will be a week tomorrow since I saw my primary physician.

I WAS THE 1ST APPOINTMENT OF THE DAY, AND THE DR WAS ALMOST 30 MIN LATE. THE FRONT OFFICE IS VERY ORGANIZED- THIS DOCTOR WAS NOT... DID NOT GET CONFIDENCE SHE WAS ABLE TO REALLY RESOLVE MY QUESTIONS AND WILL GO TO A SPECIALIST. SHE FELT VERY NEW AND NOT COMFORTABLE WITH GENERAL CONVERSATIONAL DISCUSSION WITH PATIENTS.

My appointment was a new patient to establish care. Dr. Sen seemed to have some preconcieved ideas about what I should be doing, without really valuing what I had to say. I felt talked to as opposed to talked with about my medical history and treatment. She decided that she wanted to change nearly all of my prescribed medications during my first visit, even though I feel stable on them. This was simply a matter of her personal preferences, without regard for my comfort level with her changes. I decided that I am not interested or comfortable with being her patient. I was also unhappy with the notations she made to my medical records (which were visible to me during my visit), so I no longer feel comfortable being a Legacy Health patient. I will set up care elsewhere due to this experience. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to express my feelings regarding this experience.

I didn't see a sign with the Doctors office location in the lobby. it was my first visit and another patient I met in the lobby told me where the Doctors's office was located. all else went well. The wait for blood work in the lab was very long, longer by far than the visit to the Doctor.

After making a huge effort to get to see a doctor about my chest congestion & cough, I was disappointed that there was no real medicine to prescribe for me to get well sooner. Even when I went to the pharmacy, they did not have the cough syrup (OTC) that the doctor suggested for me. Guess we're back to the dark ages of waiting the 10-14 days for our bodies to recover on their own. I DID like Dr. Sen, very astute, very savvy, very pleasant.

dr sen is not personable and seemed robotic when running through the general questions. also I have had anxiety issues for decades and she was VERY dismissive about it and past treatment issue essentially treating me like I was drug seeking. one glance at my records when indicate I am in no way drug seeking or have history of drug seeking behavior. very humiliating.
