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. William M Bennett is a living legend. He has taken care of my kidney health since [date deleted], and there is no person in the world with a deeper scope of knowledge or a finer team. He and Dr. Batuik continue to build an amazing practice, and it has been my privilege to be their patient.

After my initial kidney consultation with the Legacy Transplant team -- including Austin Shaw Phillips, Dawn Cannon, Leslie Meyer, RN and especially William M. Bennett, MD -- I felt confident in my plan moving forward for transplant surgery. Thank you for answering all of our questions and putting our minds at ease.

We are so happy that we moved to Oregon and received a donor kidney from Legacy. I don't think another team of doctors could have compared even with the after care. Excellent team of doctors & staff in office.

The LEGACY Kidney Transplant program and staff re excellent in every way. I was in the OHSU Transplant Program prior, and can says the experiences were completely different. The culture and care at LEGACY are TOPS. I'm happy to repond to any questions about the differences of the two programs, if there's any interest. Thanks.

Your hospital is so clean!!!!!!!! The employees are all so nice, and helpful. I wish our hospital was 1/2 as clean and nice people (St Charles, Bend and Redmond Oregon) Every body at your place is so happy. St Charles everybody is so unhappy and disrespectful.
