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

My experiences with Dr. Halpin and Dr. Bailey are always good. Dr. Halpin and her team has always been very professional. I am very pleased with the care that she has provided and anyone that I know that is seeking these types of medical needs I always tell them to contact her office.

Dr. Halpin has performed weight loss surgery on me, and the results have been miraculous! Everything about my health has improved significantly. She did such a wonderful job, and I cannot thank her or her team enough for changing my life the way they did. I feel like i am important to them, and their monitoring of my health is the absolute best. I thank God for them and for Legacy Health Systems every day.

All good. The survey asks if staff followed up to inform me of lab results. Although my answer is no, the results have always been easily accessible thru the patient portal. This survey question, as currently structured, does a dis-service to the provider.
