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

Dr. D is great. She has done two procedures on me. I have had this problem for over 25 years. These have been the easiest I have ever done. Thanks again for all you've done.

Cory Donovan and her staff are excellent - thorough, considerate and just plain delightful human beings. They made what could have been a truly unnerving experience into something far more palatable just by showing genuine care and concern in providing the best care possible.

Dr. Donovan & her whole team were INCREDIBLE. I've never had such a positive experience w/a health care provider. So thankful for the outstanding care I received, and sad because it means I won't have more interactions with the friendly & kind group!
