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

This was a new patient visit. I was dreading having to quickly explain complicated medical conditions in 100 words or less, as these visits sometimes require. Dr. Beers immediately put me at ease. He is kind. He listens, and asks good questions. He is smart. He keeps up on his research. He had good suggestions for me. Dr. Beers has done remarkable work in the community, so I already knew of and respected him. I feel like I can trust him. It was a delight to meet him!

Excellent experience. Dr. Beers took the time to talk with me thoroughly about all my concerns and showed me a lot of respect. The office was very hard to find, however; there is no signage for it whatsoever to indicate it is Legacy Medical Group.

I sent Dr Beers a message on Myhealth, he called me the next morning and gave up his lunch break to see me. He is always the best possible physician. The reception staff is welcoming, helpful and patient, not an easy thing to be when dealing with people who are often entitled, cranky, in pain, or just plain stupid. in 17 years of being a patient at this practice, I have rarely had a less than excellent experience and never had a bad one.

This is a most timely experience to relieve a condition of a left middle finger paranychia and the necessary treatment was both timely, excruciatingly painful, but necessary. Dr. Beers provided me the information on how to prevent this condition for the future and treated the immediate need. He is a physician of exemplary worth, as he puts the value of each patient on the same level. People over profit is what he practices and he has the highest of integrity, dignity, professionalism, and showing of compassion for his patients. He takes the time to explain the process or procedure, BEFORE he performs it and during the process;this is what i admire about him. As a health care professional; he relates to me with the respect of being one and with all of the respect appreciated. I have previously referred patients to him from my clinic, so it was indeed, an honor to have him referred to me as my PCP. Thank God for him and his tableside manner, professionalism and being a man of valor.

I am always pleased & impressed by how much Dr Beers addresses all my medical issues but then goes beyond that to get to know me personally and connect with me as a human being. That is very rare these days and I highly value that in a medical provider.

I like the ability to send messages to my doctor online. Dr. Beers always responds the same day or within 24 hours. Also like being able to schedule appts., see details of visits and any tests I need to do. I feel able to participate in my care in a very proactive way. Thank you!

I am VERY glad Dr Beers is my PCP. This building has no Men's bathroom. It has 2 multi stall Women's bathrooms and 2 gender neutral bathrooms where a man is usually waiting for a woman. I am all for gender neutral bathrooms, but could you please make it easier for me to pee when I see Dr Beers & other providers in this building?

The receptionist called me forward by name, she recognized me. That is an exceptional service level in a busy, very large, multiple physician clinic. Dr. Beers remembered the results of a specific series of every 90-day tests from memory, away from his computer when answering my questions.

My, PCP, Dr. Beers took not only the time to review all medications being taken, but the need to discontinue one for hypertension, the risks or lack of risks involved in all the other medications taken and that included the OTC and prescribed ones. He took extra time to not just explain the action and possible side effects, but the favorable outcomes also. He is an exceptionally gifted Dr. in that he relates to his patients at their level and not try to impress them with his education or level of academic achievement. He honors those like myself, who are Medical providers, but still need to realize that "Sicilian heal thyself" does not always work. He also addressed personal issues related to health such as spending four hours in water aerobics, six days a week, singing in the Gospel Christmas choir with the Oregon Symphony, while singing in four other choirs, feeding the homeless, prison ministry and how it might be well to cut back on some involvements and take care of myself. I admire his humility, personal care and concern, but the best part of a visit with him is to see my past history of chewing gum from the liquid amber or gum tree; the tree is just outside of his window and visible. This is the most precious time that i have, when i visit with him. He cares, and keeps the health care in care and that is what makes the difference. I might recommend him to others, but he is my personal PCP and no one can share or have him. Be blessed and know that we all need each other to survive.

The only reason I said no one contacted me to discuss test results is because I use MyHealth. I always get my test results promptly and know how to interpret them.

Dr. Beers was super attentive and professional, as always. Was great to be able to do blood tests on site...with very quick results the next day. Had an ssue of getting my PCP electronic referral for upcoming dermatologist appointment, but took hard copy with me, which sufficed.

Always great experience and treated very respectful. Dr. Beers is exemplary as a Physician, always positive despite the horrific health insurance/government driven rationing of quality care. It is my hope that Legacy does not contribute to Physician pressures or rationing of care!

my only complaint is that Dr. Beers was unable to schedule an appointment for an MRI in less than 2 weeks. I don't necessarily fault him for that. Rather, the system was not responsive to his request or my needs.

Dr Beers is informed about current trends and changes in research, and he is informed about my health history. Each appointment feels like an education, but it also always feels personal. He knows and understands me. Dr Beers is both a physician and health and wellness coach. I feel fortunate to be in his care.
