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 wish my test results were put on my health so I could review and research. they only put my Tsh and complete blood panels. They did not release the cholesterols, liver and pancreas results. They made me schedule an appointment with a GI before she released them! I felt like they were giving me the run around and the Dr never called to give me the results, I had to speak with the MA who did not understand all the numbers!

Dr. Sen as usual is a caring individual who always makes you feel comfortable while she gives you her professional advice that seems to always be what I need to know. She has a warm sociable personality and I always feel I am getting the best of care possible. Thank you Dr. Sen!!!!!!!

Excellent visit BUT I dislike Regence's online communications. My past experience with Kaiser and Stanford Medical had interactive online options where I could view my own test results and write & receive "messages" from my doctor.

Dr Sen prescribes a timely follow-up appt. to monitor efficacy of a medication change. My former PCP dropped the ball a lot in that area. Dr Sen does not drop the ball & she gives me options.

I know there's a set time limit for each visit but it would also be nice to not feel like there's a clock counting down my time somewhere the instant the dr gets in the room!

So far I really like Dr. Sen. She is a new primary care provider for me and I have only seen her twice. She is very thoughtful, listens, and it's obvious that she has read my chart thoroughly. I need more to establish more of a record with her before I can give her a full 10.

I've always had a pleasant experience with my provider, she understands me and very helpful with answering all my questions. Never have I had a bad experience. She's a plus and I would highly recommend her for a provider.

This was my first visit. I was looking for a new primary provider who was interested in people and I think I found her. Dr. Sen was intent and sensitive to me and my situation. Legacy's physical environment is peaceful and calm. The staff are helpful and friendly.

After prior visit I was considering finding a different doctor. I think she was detached, aloof, and somewhat condescending. I was surprised that she was very different this visit. I even told my wife (who was present at prior visit) that I actually thought she did very well this time. My wife finds it difficult to believe. This survey may explain the seemingly abrupt and, to me, pretty extreme change in attitude. I hope I am wrong about that. We will see.

Dr Sen is attentive and listens to what I say. She offers ideas on ways to lessen side effects of a medication, and has good humor. She's very clear in describing her instructions, and I like that she remembers what we talk about from visit to visit.

Dr. Sen has always made space in her schedule for my family, offering excellent advice and care. To us, she IS Legacy Medical at its best. While it is a different unit, our care from the Wound Care Clinic has been superb, too!

Initially on the first visit the provider said I did not need blood pressure medication, or thyroid medication even though my B/p was elevated and my hair was falling out (possible from my low thyroid level.) My thyroid level was below range but the provider said it was not. She did not ask if I had any symptoms of abnormal thyroid, like depression ,lethargy, low energy level. I explained that my previous doctor had ordered a thyroid medication, and that it seemed to help. Even though I was below the range she kept telling me that I was in fact within the range. She did not ask any questions about whether or not I had symptoms of abnormal thyroid levels, she just looked at the level and said it was in range and ordered more blood work.

great routine physical. there was a slight wait but nothing of concern. Dr Sen knows me as her patient and addresses my health care plan according and proactively. she is a fine, capable physician. I have been her patient [date removed], having moved here in [date removed] & am therefore getting to know all new physicians.

I was extremely pleased and surprised that Dr. Sen had yrs worth of history at her fingertips and had concerns that other physicians had no desire to follow up on.

there have been some instances where I have missed some appointments because of difficulty navigating in the my health Website. some of those issues may have been caused by my medical problems or may have been a result of miscommunication. one area where I see room for improvement is fact that I sometimes have to use other providers outside of the Legacy group. this necessitates a number of trips outside of my local area and my current medical conditions sometimes make it difficult for me to travel to Portland or other facilities outside of the Legacy Salmon Creek facility. I have a significant other who uses Kaiser Permanente as their medical provider and all services are rendered out of 1 facility. it is my belief the Kaiser provides better service merely because I don't have to travel 2 remote locations.

Dr Sen is a true professional, she knows which questions to ask, and where to send you if you need further treatment or diagnostics. I now have have four more visits to make before I see her again, dang it. one of her finest characteristics IMO, is her compassion and sensitivity to pain and distress which may not show on the surface like a wound or cut might. I call it mental intuition or maybe telepathy? she is extremely intelligent and it feels as if you have her full attention during your time allotted. all caregivers seem way overworked these days but she always remains calm and attentive, difficult to do in today's world! I think she's great!!
