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

this was a regular check-up visit. Dr. Peter reviewed all issues and my progress with my diabetes and other issues and gave me several suggestions and adjusted a med. He is a caring physician who has over the years succeeded in teaching me ways to handle the diabetes. I am much improved and learn something every time I see him. Great doctor and my wife and I are so thankful to have him taking care of me.

I am tired of being asked questions about my "emotional state" (ie, How would you rate your emotional state?, Do you feel safe in your home?, Are you feeling happy today?). Legacy has become too politically correct and gives a feeling of intrusion into personal matters (how is your sex life - Well Doctor How is your sex life? Are you feeling sad today doctor?) I go to the medical doctor for medical assistance. If I need counseling I will go to a counselor -

As usual, Dr. Peter brought his A-game to the exam room. He is the best primary physician I've ever had, I have the utmost faith in him.

I would have liked to have seen Dr. Peter about a medical problem that arose before my routine visit; but was unable to get an appointment with him, because he had no time available. I think that a patient should be able to see one's g.p. when one is ill, not just for regulatly scheduled exams. Atho other doctors were available, it is important to me to have continuity of medical care. Dr. Peter is an outstanding physician and I have complete confidence in him; seeing a substitute doctor when I need immediate medical advice does not work for me.

On the way to being roomed, I'm weighed, wearing my wet (it's raining) jacket, purse etc. It would be nice if I could off load some of this stuff, but they never take the time. Maybe they consider the weight to be plus or minus 5 pounds in a doctors office.

This was my first visit with this provider and this clinic and it was a very positive experience. As a recently retired health care provider myself I know the aspects of running an office and I am looking forward to continuing in this practice (my prior provider just retired). Dr. Peter was professional, courteous, and thorough. The front desk staff were particularly pleasant and supportive.

I have had ongoing symptoms that I tried to share with Dr Peter. His emphasis was only the general preventative reasons for the appointment. Later I found the symptoms related to a nerve issue in my neck. My question would be how much should I expect the Doc to listen, question, and understand more about issues I am unsure of.

overall my experience has been good. my only negative experience is that I did not know I had Stage 3 kidney Disease until I got home and read it on the papers given to me upon departure by the nurse. The doc thoroughly explained it during my next visit.
