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

Your transplant team is among the best clinicians. If I was a younger nurse, I would love to work with such a team, as a patient, I do not wish to go elsewhere.

Dr. Bennett is founder and head of transplant at Legacy Good Sam. Very knowledgeable and patient w/my questions. He went into great detail about the possibility of changing my medication to both preserve my kidney transplant (18 yrs.) and reduce basal and squamous cell cancers.

Dr. Bennett is my hero. He agreed to transplant me when OHSU would not. He is a wonderful physician and I will miss him. When he really retires.
