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 feel Dr Peter is very thorough and has my best interests in mind when examining me during my checkups. He always shares good advise for losing weight and controlling sugar and salt in my diet. I think he's a great Doctor.

My only concern is that I had a 10:25 appointment and did not leave until 11:45. I was in for only routine blood and urine tests

Yes, I am a strange person who feels fine about a doctors visit-because I feel that at Legacy I am in excellent hands. The staff and medical providers are all friendly and knowledgeable.I would rather NOT get ill, but if I do-I know I am in good hands at Legacy. THIS visit was a wellness follow up so it was EASY sailing!

Legacy's medical records database is horrible. My doctor has entered into the system my last 3 visits that fact that I take saw palmento. Why has he had to enter it 3 times already? and probably will have to enter it again during my next visit.

We changed insurance recently and therefore had to find a new provider, which I was definitely nervous about. We did a lot of research of doctors throughout the Legacy network and decided on Dr. Peter. His professionalism, expertise and relational style are very similar to our long-term doctor from when we lived in [location removed], and I couldn't be more pleased. My wife has her first appointment with Dr. Peter next week and my positive experience with him and the rest of the team has really put her at ease.

Dr. Peter knows my medical history very well. He always asks whether or not I have any health questions or concerns. He always listens well to what I have to say and answers thoughtfully. He's a superb physician.

Dr. Peter was completely focused on my condition. After his thorough exam, he wanted me to have an MRI within 24 hours. He would not let me leave until they could set up the test that day! I was able to have the MRI at 7:30 that night! I feel that Dr. Peter and his staff really went "the extra mile " for me and for that I cannot thank the enough!

The staff are always courteous and efficient. This particular visit I had a trainee do the initial check-in and it was as expected a little slow. I didn't mind and I understood since I am a retired healthcare provider myself (physician).
