Dr. McKay was delayed because of more time needed for patient before me. I appreciate that she takes the time we need to see her. She answers questions, makes suggestions, checks on my current issues. She really cares about her patients!

Treated promptly and respectfully. Dr. McKay carefully reviewed choices for blood pressure medication, which I needed to start.

The blood draw really hurt the whole time, and she didn't get enough blood and had to do it again on the other arm. The second draw felt normal. I think she didn't do it correctly the first time. The last time I had lab test there, a different receptionist was curt and a little snippy. I also think the sliding glass window gives a bad first impression.

During routine blood draw for A1C test, I experienced a low blood sugar episode and was treated very well by several personnel in the office. They even called me at home shortly afterward to follow up to make sure I was feeling okay. Top notch service!

Prior to my visit with the doctor, I prepare a list of questions I want to discuss with her. I had 7 questions and we discussed together in depth the seven questions I had prepared. My test results from that visit show that that I am prediabetic which I have used MY Health to discuss this situation with my doctor.

I was referred to another doctor (ENT specialist) regarding an ongoing concern. I was contacted by the specialist's office and set up an appointment. Then I received a reminder about the upcoming appointment on my Legacy MyHealth online site. The message also gave me the opportunity to Check In online to the new provider's appointment by filling out the requisite pages of questions. So I filled out all of the pages of questions involving my health history, medications, etc. When I showed up to my appointment they handed me a clipboard of pages of questionnaires for the same information. When I explained that I had already checked in online they told me they don't have online check-ins. So I had to fill out all of their paperwork after having already previously done that on the Legacy MyHealth site. The office staff there mentioned that the issue had come up before with Legacy referrals.

As usual, top notch support and service. I want to especially commend your phlebotomist (spelling?), didn't get her name, but in all the years I have been getting stuck, I have NEVER had someone do the blood draw that was virtually pain free! It has always made me nervous to get blood draws, but her skill was amazing!

insurance regulations about what you can or cannot talk to your doctor about during a physical without incurring an additional charge seems a bit absurd.

The visit itself was very good. Dr McKay is a very good doctor. My issues are with the process of communication with the staff, inlcuding the doctor between visits. The response time to the emails I send thru myHealth is not good. It is always a back and forth process and requires me to call and ask what is going on with my email/request. I would like to see emails directly back from the doctor. The schedules worked seem to change all the time and I never know if the MA is in, or if the doctor is in. It is frustrating. I like Dr McKay but the communication issues really seem to never get better. I have had this same complaint for a number of years. Thanks for listening.

This office is always difficult to receive same day or even next day response(s) to any medication or medical question(s). Always have to call back at least once or twice. Scheduling appointments are also difficult, doctor has very limited hours she works.
