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. Gould was very personable and was a good listener. she also explained things very well and have me options. Her MA (sorry I forgot her name but she introduced herself) was very attentive, also, I didn't feel like I was being rushed. I'm glad I was referred to this office.

I hold a great deal of admiration for Dr. Gould. During my exams, she puts me at ease with her calm and gentle manner, takes the time to explain what's going on, answers my questions, and treats me in a most caring and respectful way. Dr. Gould is an exceptional provider. I wish she could be my PCP!

After 4 different doctors, Dr.Gould finally listened to me and all of my concerns and symptoms. She was the first doctor that mentioned to me that I have Endometriosis. I felt understood and that my condition was validated. She is really a skilled surgeon and also treats with care and respect. She gave me my life back, and I'm so thankful that I found her!

Provider was very rushed. There was not time to ask questions or fully discuss next steps. I am not sure that provider understood when I told her the current course of treatment I've been undergoing is not working. There was no discussion about other options for treatment. Saw provider for a total of only 5 minutes.

Felt that the provider did not let me talk enough about my concerns, cut me off in sentence. Did not take enough time looking into my chart/familiar with my history and was not familiar enough with treatments I felt can help.

Doctor was very knowledgeable and a great listener! She answered all of my questions, understood my unique medical history and how it applies to the problem I was seeing her for. She understood my problems and very clearly communicated her plan to try adressing them, and what else we can try if the first steps do not work. It was a great appointment, and I feel very confident in my care from her, especially because I was quite nervous when I originally arrived.

Dr. Claire Gould is an amazing physician. She is professional with a great personal and caring touch. I immediately felt comfortable with her manner and personal interest in my condition. This is very important to me, as I am a [removed for patient privacy], who desires to be treated as I treat others. I know how to recognize good care and when someone is genuine. This office from first phone call, doing online forms, to meeting front desk folks, to having my exam, and then exiting office, gave me great assurance that I would (and did) receive professional care, based on who I was, not just a perception of my issues. I have always had excellent care by Legacy physicians; for women's issues, she is definitely the best. Thank you Dr. Gould and staff!

Dr. Gould is a real gem, she perfectly balances empathy with effectiveness and action. I worry less about an issue knowing I'm going to see her and shes the only Dr. I've seen where I'm not trying to actively manage my own care because I know she is doing her job fully and sees me as a whole human and is up to date on the science without having lost her humanity.

Dr. Gould is by far the BEST doctor that Legacy employs, or at least in the top two. She has been beyond amazing every time she has worked with me. She is kind, humble and very knowledgeable. It isn't often that you meet a DR who has every character trait you could wish for. Thank you for sharing her with me. I will be a patient of hers for as long as she has me.

This was my first visit and she listened to what was going on with me and helped me understand my options and the pros and cons of each choice. She is bright and really seemed to care about what had to say. She was clear and not pushy about what she would want me to do. She also was open to hearing my suggestions and observations about my condition.

This was one of the BEST medical visits I have had in recent memory. Every aspect from check in to the care shown by every person including my doctor made me feel at ease. I felt like I would be okay, after being scared and worried for months. They inspired me to change my PCP to Legacy due to the level of their professionalism and empathy. I have already told several family and friends how relieved I feel and how wonderful my care was.

Only thing is when I was making a followup appt the receptionist made sure I knew that they had a 10 minute late time and if one was over 10 min late they would be charged. It sort of felt like she was treating me like I would be late. Guess she just let me know the policy, but it could have been said differently. Otherwise ALL was great
