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 Andersen was punctual, and ready to see me as her patient. She asked questions about my health and we discussed my concerns. She performed her exam very efficiently. You can tell she really cares about her patients. The entire office including the front desk and MA Shauna, are very efficient, but still very caring about me and for my well being. MA Brittany took me back into the exam room. She had a few free moments and to help out Shauna who was tied up at the moment. Another example that shows you the staff put the patient first. This office provides the best overall experience I have had over the years. All the dedication to their patients really shows. You have a great team!
