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'm pleased to have a doctor very familiar and comfortable talking about GLBTQ issues. My previous doctor was not, and I nearly stopped seeing him because of his discomfort and lack of knowledge.

the insurance and medical industry needs to work together better. I'm tired of filling out paperwork and providing insurance information to everyone that I talk to when I make a simple appointment for an illness, prescription or blood draw.

Excellent service in all respects. I've moved to Legacy NW from a concierge practice and on this first visit found that Legacy and Dr. Robins and staff provided superior service to what I had recently been experiencing with my former clinic.

I was glad that Dr. Robins took my concerns seriously and ordered an ultrasound that was indeed given to me in short order.

Dr. Robins immediately gave me reason for the fluttering in my upper chest. He explained it in a way that made sense. I was very relieved. He then went over my medical history and saw I was due for routine blood tests and sent the order to the lab right away. I am very satisfied with the treatment and attention I receive at every visit.

Dr. Robins is seeing Dr. Savransky's patients while she is on maternity leave. I found him to be personable and thorough with his exam of my skin issue/infection and his explanation of why it happened and what type it was. [details deleted to protect privacy] I would be comfortable seeing him again.

I felt the direction provided was inconsistent with what really is the issue. Provider didn't explain or help to understand/I wouldn't see him under any circumstances.

This was my first visit with Dr. Robins and it was to establish care. Because of that, I wasn't sure how to answer some of the questions. Previously, I was receiving my health care through Kaiser Permanente (2010 to end of 2917). I was very impressed with Dr. Robins. He was friendly, thorough, and seemed very knowledgeable. We addressed both my immediate concerns as well as less urgent health issues. I'm looking forward to working with Dr. Robins.

there was a bit of confusion at the end of my visit- dr. robins had mentioned that I'd have a blood and urine test for an STD screening. After I left the office the receptionist told me I was done and could go home- I asked him to check, since I hadn't had blood drawn, and when he came back he reiterated that I was all set. It says on my after visit summary (which unfortunately I didn't read until I got home) that I needed to go up to the lab for and STD screening. I'm still confused about it! Otherwise it was a very good first visit.

I'm a brand new patient so some of the preliminary questions weren't really relevant. The appointment went really well and I very much liked my new Dr. He was incredible attentive and I felt heard. A lot of the doctors are writing or typing while you talk but Dr Robins was sitting with me, looking and listening which is tremendously helpful.

This was a followup visit from an emergency room visit the night before. I am not sure why I was there, but the clinic insisted I see the doctor. It was great that the nurse called to see how I was doing earlier that day and I could ask questions of her. That seemed to be enough.

This was my first visit with Doctor Robins. I recently returned to the States after living abroad for 12 years, so am just getting reestablished. He was very easy to talk to, and understood my various health issues, offering new ideas for treatment. I feel as though I have come to the right place for my ongoing healthcare.

Medical ass't performed ear lavage to remove wax. There was no hot water in plumbing system, even though she ran the water a long time. Use of cool-lukewarm water for lavage caused the procedure to take a very long time to remove wax and was quite painful. Legacy should be able to provide hot water in all examination rooms.

Initially called the advice nurse and did not receive a reply. Sent an e-mail to my physician regarding my concern and mentioned that I left a message. In return, I was told the advice nurse was not in that day. Yhis should have been mentioned on the phone.

it was an extremely short check-up. I have not been in a hospital since I stopped seeing my pediatrician, so I thought I might as well come in. I didn't have much to discuss, but wanted to be in the system. It worked out great, and Robins was approachable and helpful to talk to.

As Dr. Zeller was out of the office, Dr. Robbins discussed my recent trip to [location deleted] and we planned ways to avoid the problem again.(not that it can be avoided but diet, etc that might slow it down) He knew of my problem, was easy to talk to, and I would go to him if my regular Dr was out of the office .
