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

Dr. Gillespie was following up on a condition that had been monitored by my former cardiologist, Dr. Eric Putz and had developed a problem that required monitoring. He seemed to understand my situation and cautioned me to contact him immediately if there any changes in my condition. [detail deleted to protect privacy]

Dr. Gillespie is attentive, thorough, careful, and patient. I was in heart block when I first saw him, and he answered my questions patiently and was completely informative. I am most appreciative of his care, and I feel confident in his judgment.

Was scheduled to see Dr Gillispie on [date deleted]. Had to cancel. Was told, not politely that I could not see him until [date deleted]. This is the 2nd time I've had an issue with scheduling and the staff not being helpful of polite. Last time I informed Dr of my plight. Saw no change on [date deleted]. I am leaving Dr and going elsewhere. It seem to me that Dr has too many patients and/or the staff is not handling customer service as it should. Please feel free to call me and discuss.

He is a good dr that I have confidence in for my heart related issues. Only issue is he is so good that is in high demand and hard to get emails and phone questions returned and answered. That would be the only negativr response and is only that way because he is a very popular doctor

This was my first visit with DR Gillespie, I was seeing DR Eric Putz before he left the practice. I found Dr Gillespie to be knowledgeable, answered my questions and explained what he wanted me to do for future care. He was patient and didn't hurray me along.

I was a previous Putz patient and Gillespie took over my care when Putz left. I was very impressed with Gillespie. He had clearly reviewed my chart and was knowledgeable about my medical history. He provided great recommendations and changed my medication appropriately.

This was my first appointment with Dr. Gillespie regarding my pacemaker and related cardiology issues. Dr. Gillespie had reviewed my medical record and was already very well informed regarding my situation. Dr. Gillespie did an excellent job of explaining the issues involved, the tests that he ordered and was answered all my questions. I am looking forward to continuing as a cardiology patient.

It was a post-op visit. The ICD tech was training someone else. Throughout my time they discussed settings, the machine, following dr.'s directions - all without including me. I was sitting there! My first time, so I was frightened by their interaction with one another.

Dr Gillespie continues to perform at a very high level each and every visit I have with him. He looks and understands my history, clearly explains options in place to consider and guides me down a path that is the best way to move forward. Exceptional Doctor. Exceptional manner and very high level of knowledge. I feel most fortunate he is my Doctor!

This Dr just took over my case, Dr Putz left this practice. I think he did a remarkable job considering we just met. I felt very comfortable talking to him and I feel he listened and responded as best he could.

Dr. Gillespie was excellent. He answered all of my questions and provided me with all the information needed as I prepare for my ablation procedure. The Dr. spent at least an hour with me which was very much appreciated.

i came to Emanuel to get a cardioversion and possibly a TEE. After a review of my condition, Dr. Gillespie determined i did not need a TEE. The cardioversion went smoothly. the nursing care on the 4th floor CVU were excellent. i was discharged home on the same day, and returned to work the next day.

Dr. Gillespie was extremely knowledgeable, patient, kind, and considerate. I would truly find it a pleasure to send anyone in my family to him. I can't thank him enough for the time he spent with my husband and myself so that we could make a well informed, safe and medically based decision on how to proceed from this point. He is absolutely one of the best doctors I have had the pleasure of working with!

Dr. Gillespie listened carefully, asked good questions, answered by concerns, suggested a return visit in 4 months. I feel he is very much "on top of his game" and that I am in good hands with his care.

Dr. Sawyer Gillespie saved my life by inserting a pacemaker on "very short notice" - he gave me new life and new hope. He is kind, knowledgeable, and compassionate but is a great listener. I praise him!
