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

My provider instilled confidence in me from the moment he began explaining things to me and answering my questions. I would not hesitate to recommend him for my own family. But this is about more than a single provider. I went in for emergency surgery on an obstruction in my small intestine. From the moment I arrived and an orderly ran to grab me a wheelchair in the ED, through the entire process, of surgery and recovery, I was treated with respect and compassion. The surgeon, two resident interns and the entire nursing staff provided care that was unparalleled, 24 hours a day for a full week. The Chief of Staff even came to check on me multiple times. The care that I received while recovering was unbelievable. Though there were a couple of nurses who stood out in their compassion and kindness, if I were to name them it would place them ahead of the entire care team. This would not be fair because together, this entire team deserves to be recognized as rock stars in their profession.

I donated a kidney and want to comment on the excellent care I received from the entire transplant team, not only the surgeon you asked about who I saw for ~10 minutes prior to surgery. The nurses were exceptional...respectful, clear, strong advocates, and made me feel like a queen. The social workers were careful, thorough, and attended to my physical and mental health gracefully. It has been a very positive experience and I want to honor the whole team, not only the surgeon.

Requested they provide more after-op information. Specially about specific diet to follow. I had to search online so I could have "written info" for specific food to avoid or Ok to try eat. To share with family.

I haven't had quite a few surgeries and this one was by far the most involved one from the doctor's team. From pre-op counseling/diet/physical therapy through the surgery day through the hospital stay and through the post op follow up; very extensive involvement and participation and very appreciated.

This Dr. did an exceptional job with my recent surgery. I had absolutely none of the symptoms or problems I was told to expect. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing this surgery. I have been visiting this office for the last five months and entire group has made it a very rewarding experience.
