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 is friendly specially the nurse navigator, i didn't feel up some of the questioner about office visit because it doesn't make sense, when you're a cancer patient, you already have appointment set up for all the chemo therapy, and you will see the provider, they do blood test etc. i think it would be nice to have separate survey for regular patients because we see the provider on regular basis for chemo therapy.

as usual the parking is awful. The parking structures need to be patrolled. Many of the parking spaces were taken because people aren't parking with-in the spaces. Security or some one designated needs to give these people tickets. This is of course not a new problem,in the 40 plus years I have been employed here it has gotten worse.

I am scheduled for surgery. I received a packet about the surgery. It was not made specific to my surgery. i had to read about stuff that didn't pertain to me: about activity in bed (my surgery is out-patient), about diet (my surgery has nothing to do with whether I can have solid food or not). I think the packet should be tailored to my specific case, and while I recognize that is time-consuming for the practice (I have been in business), it ensures that the person will read the material, and doesn't waste my time as a consumer.

This was my first visit to the clinic with Dr. Winters. It was a referral from my local doctor. I was treated great. One of the best visits I have had since my Dr. of 40 years retired. He put me at ease about my cancer and not afraid of the surgery and follow up. He is great doctor.

The doctor visit went smoothly and fine. It was the Legacy lab that was not so pleasant because of the 45 minute wait for a three minute good draw.This is typical and should be improved.

Dr. Winter was wonderful and provided a wealth of info. It would have been helpful to have known that I would first be meeting with an Intern and Resident before seeing him. I appreciate him pairing down the team during the physical exam.

I was very apprehensive about this appointment, to the point of crying. Kelly, the nurse, stayed with me during the appointment and that was such a relief, Elizabeth, the PA, was very gentle and supportive, and Dr Winter was wonderful.

Dr. Winter, his staff and the reception area staff are always wonderful. They make me feel good every time I go in to see them. Even having the dreaded "C" word, when I talk to any of the staff I can feel good about how I am feeling, how I am handling things in reference to my illness, and I feel assured that if I have questions or concerns at any time, I can call them and I will be helped. I appreciate them so very much.

Dr. Winter is wonderful. I would recommend him unequivocally to any woman addressing a gynecological cancer. I feel I have received the most expert care from him (for both a full hysterectomy and chemo) and also appreciate his obvious interest in treating the whole patient, not just the cancer. The clinic's staff are also knowledgeable, helpful and kind.

My provider has always been wonderful with me. However, this was one of my best visits as far as care from other folks. The clerks, the medical assistant and the phlebotomist were all professional and knowledgeable this time. The wait time in the lab for bloodwork was next to nil, and James(?) was excellent! Also, this time there was no hassle in getting a parking pass for my friend who had come to accompany me for my appointment. BRAVO on outstanding improvement on all counts!

[date and name deleted to protect privacy] First, if you've ever visited William Winters office and staff you would know exactly how wonderful he and his staff. I suggest you visit with them and give them this feedback directly. This is a wonderful health care team, they are easy to talk with, they are really nice folks, there's a plaque on the wall in the waiting room with Dr. Winter's name on it with a pretty darn high award, my own personal physician likes him, I like him and would certainly tell you differently if this wasn't so. So visit these great folks, take 'em out for lunch because they deserve it. Their job isn't always easy nor fun, they have chosen a tough field: oncology..not always good outcomes...Very sincerely

I was not made aware in advance that I needed blood drawn as part of my appointment. I was told to go to the labupstairs after my appointment. I was told I could also go to the OHSU cancer facility across the hall. There was an 87 minute wait upstairs, so I went to the OHSU office. I was told they didn't have doctor order for the blood draw, and I needed an appointment. I was hungry and not ready to watt 87 min, so I went back to the main Dr. office, told them my story (by now I'd wasted 25 minutes), and was told I could get my blood draw at any Legacy lab in the next few days. That would have been really nice to know as I was leaving my appointment, so that I didn't waste that time.
