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

Patient Access were too involved in interpersonal aspects of work (talking with each other)to give GOOD EYE CONTACT and acknowledgement to me. Note this person was young, needs education on customer relation skills, i.e. the importance of sharing eye contact between computer screen and the actual person standing at the window. Its a generational thing.

In an era where, as a clinical social worker, I have experienced and heard my clients being treated like cattle, with MAs not introducing themselves to patients and doctors being overly brief and condescending, I find this provider and this clinic to be a breath of fresh air.. Dr. Paquette is as kind and genuinely caring and knowledgable as a doctor could be. The staff at this clinic have been quick to reply to calls or questions, kind and competent. I actually coordinated care with Dr. Paquette for an elderly client of mine years before I became her patient. In 33 years in the mental health field, I have never seen a PCP more thorough and caring in her treatment of a client. Legacy is lucky to have her on their team. This is an excellent clinic. I actually have Providence insurance, because the premiums are too high on coverage that Legacy accepts. However, I pay cash in order to keep my care primary with Legacy and with Dr. Paquette.

As you enter the office the receptionist are very upbeat and always have a smile. It is hard to get an appointment but they always try to get you in as quickly as possible. Dr. Paquette is always very sweet and knowledgeable on every topic we have touch upon. I would recommend her to anyone because she is very thorough.

Dr. Paquette is a wonderful doctor. however, it is impossible to get an appointment with her. when I am sick, I am told by reception to go to urgent care because my doctor is too busy to see me. when I had a serious medical situation, my doctor had no openings so a substitute doctor there saw me. The only reason I was able to get in with her this time was because my serious medical situation was drawn to her attention and she called me and gave me an appointment. The ridiculous patient load Legacy allows makes an impossible situation for established patients to ever see their own doctor.

Only problem: While I was waiting for blood work there was a woman in the waiting room with a mask and had an EXTREME cough and illness, it was frightening considering the Virus now in Portland.....she should have not been with the regular people waiting. Clearly she was someone who should have been testing for the coronavirus!!!!

Since she is a DO she focuses too much of adjustments which cause her to not have time in the future for medical concerns therefore unable to get appointment when something medical comes up.

As a recently new Legacy patient (coming from Kaiser), I was exceptionally impressed by Dr. Paquette and her staff's investment in listening carefully and providing straight-forward and clear responses that provided me with the information I needed to make health care decisions. I feel very confident in my health care team and in my ability to stay healthy going forward!

I have recommended Dr Paquette to friends and one is going to her now. For me I think Dr Paquette is the best doc I've ever had. She listens and honors what I have to say about my health. She treats me with respect, as do all of the people at the clinic. When I'm with Dr Paquette I always feel like I'm her only client, never like she is in a hurry to be off the her next client. I never feel rushed and like what I have to say is not important. I always come away feeling hopeful.

I say I would recommend my doctor but not really because it would become even harder to get a same day appointment with her. All the doctors in this office and many others have such a back log of patients. My wife and I are having to use urgent care more and more. At this visit Dr. Paquette told me their office brought in a nurse practitioner who was just starting the week I was there. This should help.

Dr. Paquette is phenomenal. She listens well, is very open to unconventional (non-western) medicine options when western medicine has failed. I love how relatable she is and how she thinks outside the normal box for ways to improve patient health. My only concern is how full her schedule is, but she is aware of this and discussed it.

Because Dr Paquette is so stellar, both professionally and personally, her schedule is always packed, and VERY difficult to get in to see. She takes time to listen and inform, which makes her very popular. Due to your policy of cramming them in, as tight as possible, it is often impossible to see her in times of emergency or special need. For this reason, I will never refer her to others, as no existing patient wants to make it even more difficult to access her time. You have an absolute treasure in her, and it feels abusive that we have to fight so hard to see her. I now make 2-3 future appointments, before leaving, to make certain that I see her on a consistent basis.

I've been to MANY Doctor appointments with other family members to other offices and they weren't near as efficiently run. I have recommended this clinic. There are many other clinics that could learn from this office.

Dr. Paquette should not be required to take more patients by Legacy. It is hard for her current patients to get an appointment with her now. I'm sure you will lose long term patients based on the fact of how hard it is to get appointment with Dr. Paquette. Legacy has always her this mentality of working their physicians to death and spreading them thin. Wake up and put your patients first and not money. I will probably be looking for her another physician at Providence.

We schedule 6 months ahead but had to push it out even farther for next year. I am now schedule with her through 2021. She is a rockstar and I understand that is precisely why it is difficult to get an appointment. Still...worth the wait!!!

She is booking into 2020, and I am a regular patient. That's not good. She only has so many hours in her day/week. Perhaps you need to find more quality O.D.'s? I would recommend her highly, but don't want to burden her with more patients, since I have trouble getting in to see her now.

Only negative side of the provider is you are not able to get in to see her. I would be worried if I got sick and needed to see her. She is very busy and you will need to schedule way out for routine check ups. Otherwise, I would recommend her to friends and relatives.
