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

Mike always takes the time needed to answer all questions and concerns. In fact, I told him he needed to be a Doc, because he is so good. His bedside manner is excellent!

Very helpful visit with the dr office. It was follow up to recent shoulder surgery. I felt well informed of what I was doing right, and ways to increase productivity in my healing and recovery.

Michael PA greeted, spoke of past visits. inquired of the present concern, gave full and thoughtful exam, stated his findings and provided several possible treatments and commented on my choice. Michael PA assured - as he has done in past visits - a local and time for treatment. He then commented on a book I suggested last visit and he offered a title that he though I'd enjoy. He answered every question to my satisfaction and made this a pleasant visit in every respect. He included my wife in conversation also, for she is a constant companion during every visit. God Bless Legacy Medicl Group.

This was a pre-op visit for hip replacement surgery. Michael was very friendly, patient, and courteous. He listened and answered all of our questions, and we didn't feel rushed or get the impression that he was rushed.

I was left in the exam room for over 20 minutes. I finally opened the door and waited for a nurse to walk by. when she did I said my appointment was at 9am and it is almost 9:30. she said the doctor was doing rounds at the hospital but she would call him. he finally showed up and asked how I was and said he heard I was in a hurry to go somewhere. I said my appointment was at 9 and I've been waiting 40 minutes for him sitting in paper shorts in the exam table. He snapped at me and said he was only 36 minutes late. First he has a [profanity deleted] attitude and shouldn't talk like that to patience unless he is looking to get in trouble. Second. my appointment was at 9 for a reason. I normally start work at 8:30 but scheduled time off as most people do. But I had to be to work at 10am. Needless to say I was late for work. I respect the fact that doctors gave to deal with a lot of situations, but my time is just as valuable to me. and not loosing my job that supports my family is equally important.

I have a arthritic knee and had a lubricant injected. Michael is always informative and the process is relatively pain free.

Mike is extremely good at explaining all options relating to your problem or condition and offering several alternatives you might consider. Never feel rushed in his office or leave without some kind of resolution to my problem. (Deserves a raise!)

My experience with Michael Cvitash, PA-C was very positive. He reviewed my medical treatment in detail on [date deleted]. He and his assistant, Kathleen, were most helpful in obtaining prior authorization from my health insurance for the procedure on [date deleted]. Each of them were exceptional in timeliness, details of the procedure & the at home care I should follow. The care I received was very much appreciated. I was called the afternoon of [date deleted] by their scheduling person at Legacy Medical for a followup appointment in 2 months. I wish to thank everyone involved for making this a positive medical experience & treatment details.

I have found that at the Silverton office the wait times are outrageous. waited in editing room and in procedure room. Woodburn office seems to run smoother. I waited nearly one hour in Silverton after my appointment time.

All the doctors and care providers with Silverton Health are way above average.

I have always received only the best care from Dr. Puskas and his P.A Mike C. I was there for post- op and pre-op appts. for my past surgery and planned surgery in November or December ( for my other shoulder).I swear by my doctors and have recommended them to friends and family after my treatment. I wish I had found Dr. Puskas 10 years ago. I had 3 unnecessary surgeries before I found him or rather was referred by Dr. Rosborough at your Keizer facility. VERY HAPPY!!!

I waited more than 15 minutes in the waiting room. once called back I waited for 45 more minutes before I left without being seen. my appointment would have been canceled if I was late, no reason for me to be expected to wait an hour to be seen. The PA did call me on the phone to apologize for the wait but I will not be returning.
