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

This was my first visit and she listened to what was going on with me and helped me understand my options and the pros and cons of each choice. She is bright and really seemed to care about what had to say. She was clear and not pushy about what she would want me to do. She also was open to hearing my suggestions and observations about my condition.

This was one of the BEST medical visits I have had in recent memory. Every aspect from check in to the care shown by every person including my doctor made me feel at ease. I felt like I would be okay, after being scared and worried for months. They inspired me to change my PCP to Legacy due to the level of their professionalism and empathy. I have already told several family and friends how relieved I feel and how wonderful my care was.

Only thing is when I was making a followup appt the receptionist made sure I knew that they had a 10 minute late time and if one was over 10 min late they would be charged. It sort of felt like she was treating me like I would be late. Guess she just let me know the policy, but it could have been said differently. Otherwise ALL was great

Dr. Gould is a warm and caring gynecologist and spent a great deal of time with me because it just so happened I had a bad mammogram the same day I was seeing her and now need a needle biopsy. She reassured me that as soon as she knew any results I would and couldn't have been any better.

My experience with Dr. Claire Gould Is the MOST AMAZING, KIND, CARING, CONSIDERATE, PATIENT, & VERY Non~Judgmental she is so friendly & genuinely cares.... She took me under her wing during the MOST stressful time of my life dealing cervical issues, fibroids issues, bleeding issues/ severe anemia......

I will send direct ALL my family & friends to her she's the ABSOLUTE BEST..... WE need MORE Dr's like her throughout Legacy....

all I can say was I am so impressed! Dr. Gould came to see me in the ER due to my issues I was having, from that meeting (which I had never seen her prior) she took care of my concerns and made me feel heard. she not only came to see me on a day she was not covering, but then made time the very next day to complete a biopsy. she took the same care she had the day before. she was warm and personable. she even gave me a hug and called me personally with my results. I will continue to see Dr. Gould from this experience and I will even look to see if there is a PCP within Legacy I will see as my PCP for 15 years passed away. thank you for all your care!!

Dr. Gould is the best doctor I have ever gone to. She spent so much time with me explaining endometriosis, she helped guide me down a care path that we both felt would help me, and she believed that my pain was real. I only wish I had found her ten years sooner! This is the only gynecologist I will recommend to others in chronic pain, she truly listens and cares about her patients! Thank you Dr. Gould & Legacy for providing such great services.

The staff that brought me to the room (MA) ? can be a little friendly - (she was not a warm person). Anything discussed behind the door either w/MA or physician is very personal therefore making patients comfortable helps ease the atmosphere (a little). Thank you!
