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

Immediate concerns were addressed. Follow-up concerns (sent via message in iPhone app) are pending the doctor's return to the office [date removed]. Personally, I need to schedule some follow-up tests after the new year, and I'm certain they'll be handled equally as professionally as my past visits.

Dr. Zinser, his MA Cindy and Stephanie the phlebotomist all gave me excellent care! Stephanie drew my labs, then Cindy was able to test my A1C without poking my finger. The staff who care, for me are EXCEPTIONAL! They deserve a raise $ and commendated for their professionalism & care!

It seems "holistic" healthcare is no more. Not to pick on my provider, but I always feel limited to just focus on one maybe two issues, when I have many more concerns. It also seems like if one doesn't fall into a particular category of expected symptoms & results, or follow a course of the majority, that the concern is just ignored. "If its not easy, don't bother" is the feeling I get from healthcare today. No specificity, which is what I really want from my primary care provider.

Every time we have an appointment with Dr. Z we look forward to it because we know that he will be up to date with our information and our needs. He truly cares about us both as fellow people and as patients. He is well read and current with new medical information. My wife and I both think you probably ought to pay him more.

I ask for Dr. Zinser when I went on Medicare to be my PC in 2018. I have always been so impressed with his knowledge and level of care. He is one of the best doctors I have ever had. Only issue I have is with the office mgr. who called and said I had never been listed with him. She is incorrect and a bit rude. Didn't appreciate her telling me I could go elsewhere if I didn't see someone else in the future.

Dr. Zinser is my new primary care physician after my previous providers have retired or moved on. This was my first visit as a patient, although I have met Dr. Zinser before (he is my elderly mother's physician, too). My visit was brief but Dr. Zinser was prompt, pleasant and helpful with my specific healthcare issue. I left feeling confident that my healthcare is in good hands. I've been a patient at the Legacy Firwood Clinic for 20 years (before it was a Legacy clinic). Although there have been many changes in clinic staff through the years, the level of service has always been very good. The support staff is always top notch and while the clinic is busy, the staff remains upbeat and courteous to everyone. My only criticism is that sometimes the providers overlook health monitoring recommendations for their patients, i.e., periodic lab work. This could be improved by using the Myhealth system to prompt the patient about the need for these periodic tests, similar to how Myhealth reminds the patient that they need an annual flu vaccine, etc.Overall, I'm a very happy patient with only good experiences with my healthcare team. Thank you! Keep up the good work!

This provider listens to the patient, conducts a good examination, and answers questions. This provider does not recommend needless testing or referrals to specialists unless warranted by symptoms. This is the first provider I have had in several years in whom I have complete confidence.

Was there longer than normal as an intern working with Dr Zinser saw us first and then DR Zinser came inand saw us. We were asked if we were ok with the intern being part of the team so are not complaining just noting that this slowed down the process.
