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

the provider is great. but we are taking our family somewhere else due to the ridiculous time to wait to see our own provider. there is also a lack of communication after the appt.. she's great, everything else is terrible!

I have become very comfortable with Dr. Dryden over the years, and feel we are making a lot of progress in my health journey. I have come to respect her thoughts and opinions and appreciate all she has done to help me out of my comfort zones in order to make progress. I know I'm not always an easy patient. I do really appreciate her.

Dr. Dryden is the best doctor I have ever had and is focused on getting results and helping me actively manage my weight and conditions. She is proactive in guiding me to what works and practical ways of living so that I am more likely to be able to achieve my goal of getting off all diabetes medications and getting to a normal weight. I have already made great progress thanks to her guidance and dedication. She goes the extra mile and thinks out of the box when necessary.

Dr. Dryden is an excellent doctor and willing to meet me where I am in my treatment plan and encourages and supports me in investing the effort required to make serious and lasting changes in my health. I believe that with her help, both my husband and I can have a longer, healthier life. She really cares and that is evident. I was recently hospitalized and Dr. Dryden did some additional research in order to provide me the best available information so I can make good decisions going forward. Dr. Dryden quietly and kindly goes the extra mile and that isn't always easy considering the constraints of our current medical system. She demonstrates an ability for out-of-the-box thinking to solve problems and that is a rare thing in a physician these days. We are blessed beyond measure to have such a fine doctor in this rural area.
