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

I had not seen this physician before but he was excellent, and this clinic I go to has many superior physicians. My visit was a good experience - he was a thoughtful, problem solving physician. I had an infected tow & he suggested soaking it and made an appointment for another physician in two weeks, to ascertain if the toe nail was ingrown & needed to be trimmed.

Dr Ly always spends the needed time for my visits even though I know he is extremely busy. He always reports my test results in < 24hrs even if he is on vacation or it's the weekend. His MA on this day was amazing; kept me up to date on when I could expect him in my room, kind when doing the EKG, very personable (not a robot like the guy who actually roomed me).

Dr. Ly is very thorough and holistic in his approach. I like that he has the records and charts, and pictures of organs on the computer to show and advise. He takes all the time needed to receive appropriate medical care and I appreciate that.

Dr. Ly is genuinely the best provider I've ever had. I have severe doctor anxiety, and he has spent the last almost three years building trust with me and showing me that doctors can listen, can be validating, and actually have the capacity to care. I always recommend my friends to him. Not to mention, I think his staff are absolutely fantastic. I know I'll be seeing him for a very long time.

Dr. Ly is a fine human being. I appreciate his co-ordination with my chiropractic and acupuncture care. Integrated medicine works best for me. I found the art and Christmas decorations in the office very healing, as well as the view of trees from the treatment room window.

The blood draw facility is understaffed! Waiting 40 minutes (on multiple occasions) is wrong. At my most recent visit I asked why I had to wait this period of time. His response was I DID NOT HAVE to wait 40 minutes!

my provider uses transphobic review of systems forms that are issued by legacy. I was upset that a trans inclusive provider would use them. we focused more of my visit on their lack of inclusivity than on me. I don't even know if he ever got the information he needed from the form because I refused to fill it out. my physical was not thorough.
