About Me:

Dr. Batiuk joined Legacy Health in 2004. He received his medical degree from the University of Alberta in 1985. Next, he completed his Internal Medicine Residency at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, followed by a Nephrology Fellowship in 1988-1990.

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

The lab is woefully understaffed, overworked, exasperated and the procedures they are mandated to follow are confusing and in my opinion poorly thought out. Excess and overbearing bureaucracy! I waited 40 minutes for a simple blood test!
