Patient Rating

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 drive 2 hours just to keep Dr. Zinser as my physician. He is a quality person and is a top notch physician as far as I am concerned. He knows me well, and that means a lot to me. I feel absolutely comfortable with his decisions and knowledge about healthcare.

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.

Dr. Zinser is perhaps the best physician my family has ever had. He is patient, listens carefully and gives understandable feedback. He is always respectful regardless of the quality of our questions. We are thankful for him. His assistant, is fantastic as well.

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.

I did not expect to get into see a doctor that day and was prepared to go to urgent care...Dr Zinser made room for me in his already busy day and made me feel like I was "his patient" not just a number that he had to deal with.

Stuck in traffic to appointment, called office to alert, arrived in parking lot 10 min. late, took [age removed] old father 5 min. to walk into building, was told we would "have to be worked in", because we were more than 10 min. late. Did not need this aggravation!

Dr. Zinser must be a "morning person" as he has appointments available before 8:00. Although I am not a morning person, these early morning appointments are fantastic for me as I live in [location removed] but commute daily to [location removed], and these offer the lowest impact to my work life. Besides that, I very much appreciate his practical approach. Yes, we all know that diet and exercise are the best long-term methods to combat and fevers type 2 diabetes. But, he realizes that often people's schedules don't allow for sufficient exercise, and is willing to utilize drug options to assist with treatment, without judgement or lectures. This friendlier approach encourages better habits and usually results in (overall) better long term health improvement.

felt the provider did not care about the importance to me of sanctioning the supplements I choose to take and have proven to me to be medically necessary for my health after working for internists and mental health doctors I do not like having to take Pharmaceuticals but choose to take more natural things we came to an impasse.

All was fine. No complaints regarding provider. My issue is that I had lab work done, with about 5 outside of normal values. They're were the available online, but with no explanation or plans. Called after ~a week - told the holiday had slowed things down and I'd be contacted in a few days. Had to call again and was told results were online. Took forever for a medical assistant to call to discuss results. When I asked if an elevated level could be due to asthma, she said "I guess so." Then asked about my cholesterol level which was seriously elevated despite my taking medication for it. Oops, the doctor hadn't mentioned that!She later called back asking if I want to change my cholesterol med.The patient is asked if they want to change medication?!I feel the results of labwork should be treated seriously and patient should be called with results and plans for change in medication as needed. I felt it took far too long and too many phone calls to be told Dr. hadn't seen the cholesterol results.Nope, waaaaay too unprofessional.
