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

I always feel Dr. Zinser gives me his undivided, unhurried attention as he listens carefully to to me. He is knowledgeable and throughly explains treatment choices and why he prefers one over others, but is open to letting me choose if I have a preference.

I spoke with Dr Zinser for quite a while about many health concerns. I felt he was truely listening to me. He addressed each of my concerns seperately. We decided for one problem I'm having, to see a new specialist for testing. he came up with a solution with a medication that may address several problems I'm dealing with daily. I don't know when I have felt as satisfied with a visit to the doctor.

Dr. Zinser had plenty of time. We discussed my test results from the last annual checkup in March. My visit was for a lower back ache and neck pain from an accident. He described the injuries, described a helpful stretch for my back and referred me to a physical therapist he recommended. Dr. Zinser shared I last saw him in 2015. When medical insurance costs were escalating our company switched to Kaiser Permanente. They were fine but my Medicare coverage began this month and I'm glad to be back to Legacy Firwood.

Dr Zinser is, without even the slightest shadow of a doubt, the best provider I've personally ever had. He cares about me and my health as his patient and I don't feel like just a number. Even when I had to see him for an embarrassing and very private concern he was eager to help and assured me it was nothing I needed to feel uncomfortable about. Seriously fantastic.

Once again, as always, my visit with Dr. Z. was excellent. I was treated well and as a part of their family from the moment I walked in. This visit included my annual check-up and evaluation and for a referral to a surgeon for knee replacement. Both of those needs were addressed professionally and I did follow Dr. Z's recommendation for a surgeon. I look forward to my next visit. I live a better life knowing my medical care is the best I have experienced - ever!
