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. Paquette is an amazing doctor, and Legacy should be proud that she is providing top-notch care for her patients. Other doctors could absolutely learn a thing or two from her kindness, understanding, compassion, and thoroughness. Her friendly MA (Jen) also does a great job of keeping in touch if there are any concerns that crop up and is extremely efficient. (One suggestion totally unrelated to Dr. Paquette, and this is for the Legacy Bridgeport clinic in general (heck, any medical office nowadays) -- it would be great to see a bit of an overhaul to make the actual space a bit more warm, modern, inviting, and relaxing for patients and staff alike.)

I am a retired 40 year Legacy employee. Dr. Paquette is the absolute BEST PCP I have ever had!! She does back adjustments which is phenomenal. I have always thought that this would be an area that Legacy would do more advertising for. Plus she is thorough, professional and remarkably a really kind physician! You won't find any better in the Legacy Health System!!!

Dr Paquette and Jennifer are always compassionate, knowledgeable, patient. My needs are always handled professionally. Yesterday, I arrived under a great deal of anxiety and left, after my time with Dr Paquette, feeling renewed, optimistic. She set a light firmly at the end of my tunnel!

Dr. Paquette is hands down the best primary care physician I have ever had. She is always ready to listen to me, discusses my options and concerns with me, and is my advocate in every way. I often recommend her to friends but she is so well liked there is a long wait to get in to see her.

Dr. Paquette is personable and caring and always addresses my questions and concerns. I receive osteopathic manipulation for chronic issues and I always find relief with Dr. Paquette's treatment. She is a talented, gifted and professional practitioner. I greatly value her kindness, knowledge and attention to my voiced concerns.

My appointment fell on a day of the ice storms. When I called the office to reschedule, there weren't any available appointments, but Dr Paquette rearranged her schedule to accommodate me. She is a most excellent physician. I've never had the level of care and attention of a doctor quite like I've received from Dr. Paquette.

I am [age removed] years old so I have had many doctors over the years, but Dr. Paquette is the best I have ever had in every way. She makes you feel like you are the most important person to her in the spent with her and she listens and cares. I hear so many of my friends complain about how the doctor just works on her computer and tries to rush them out as soon as possible. That is never the case with Dr. Paquette. She is amazing! I am so thankful I found her at this time of my life. The Legacy system has been a good fit for me and I think it is well run system. Thank you

Dr. Paquette is the best at what she does and I'm scheduled for the next 2 years with her. If I don't schedule that far out I could end up not seeing her for months. I think Legacy needs more like her to fill the need.

I absolutely love Dr Paquette. She is the best Dr. There in lies the problem. If I get sick, I have to go to urgent care. Sbe has me booked out 18 months for appts. in order to get me on her calendar! That's cra,y!! I'm sorry, no Dr, no matter how good, should be so booked up that you can't get in for a year and a half!!

My only regret, is Dr. Paquette is extremely busy, and her schedule is always packed. So, if an unscheduled appointment is needed, it's extremely unlikely, I'm able to see her. But she is great!

Dr. Alia is so easy to talk to and really works with patients to find them the best possible avenues to obtain testing and medications when dealing with insurance. Would recommend her in a heartbeat.

I love Dr. Paquette. However, it is frustrating that when I called to get an appointment, the front office told me her next available apt was a year out. I waited over a year to be seen. I am healthy, so it's no big deal, but even Dr. Paquette told me that this is very frustrating for her. The front office doesn't understand how to triage patients when they call. If Dr. Paquette really doesn't have an opening to see her patients for over a year, then she has too many patients. That is ridiculous and unfair/unsafe for her patients.

It was really thoughtful when Dr. Paquette came to get me from the waiting room -- she wanted to minimize the time I spent in the waiting room.

I was very pleased with all the precautions they are taking during the pandemic as this had been a concern of mine going into the office. I was especially relieved that they were using different exam rooms for those who were ill from those like me who had non-contagious conditions.
