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

Everyone, from the receptionist to the Doctors, treats you like you are a member of their family and they all work hard to meet all your medical needs with respect and compassion.

The only dissapointment that I had was that the nurse kept looking at her watch as if she needed to be some place else. she had a timer set and u could tell she had a tight schdule so I didn't feel at ease to ask questions or take my time reviewing everything. otherwise it was a very perfessional invirinment. The office was well kept, everyone was friendly and very helpful. I felt that the Dr and social worker really cared about my wellness.
