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 think a great deal of Dr Dryden. She listened to my symptoms several years back and it may very well have saved my life. I had been given mistaken advise from Kaiser-Permanente so I was delighted to get the truth and the care I needed. I underwent surgery and feel grateful for my Doctors' dedication and professionalism very often. She is a delightful person and I can speak to her about any and all of my concerns. I have told neighbors and coworkers of her every chance I get. We are blessed to be in her care for sure.

I am concerned with swelling ankles - told to buy support socks - pls. note my BP was a bit high at the appt. Also, concerned with nails splitting in the nail bed & dr. just said it was normal, she has ridges too, I explained I didn't use to. I have been told I have nodules on my thyroid & just because blood test results normal, no follow up - have had previous biopsy of thyroid nodules.

This office is terrible. Including myself and my family if we need to see Dr. Dryden, even in an emergency type basis we can NEVER get in to see her. Average wait time is at least 2-3 weeks. Even if expressed, as directed from her office, it's emergency, she has never been able to see anyone. In addition, when there is any type of testing, it takes, on average, 1 1/2 weeks to receive a call from her office in regards to results. It's 1 1/2 weeks AFTER I have viewed them in Myhealth. She is a great doctor, but we have often discussed changing dr. office. It's unacceptable to have to go to Zoom Care just to be seen in emergency situations, (obviously not in a 911 type emergency).

She suggested that I check my blood pressure about 1 hour AFTER I take my morning prescriptions, to get a lower blood pressure number. That works!
