It took 6 months to get an appointment to see a new doctor because we moved from another city. She was very good at everything but getting one outside test seems interesting.

Dr. Sammond is friendly, concerned and able to explain my health issue, while arranging for an x-ray to make sure her diagnosis is on track. She encourages me to participate in the decision-making process, rather than just telling me what to do next, and makes sure we are on the same page. She left me with some unanswered questions, but once the x-ray results are in place, I know she will provide answers as best she can, and help me decide how to move forward.

This was my initial visit with Dr. Sammond. My prior primary physician died recently and Dr. Sammond was recommended to me by my Rheumatologist. Dr. Sammond was very personable, kind and respectful. She is a very attentive listener which is something I greatly appreciated. I am impressed by her warmth yet professional manner. I am certain she will be a great primary care physician for me.

The discussion with Dr Sammond was the best I have ever had with a primary physician. She is outstanding in terms of listening and giving advice. we were dealing with a complicated issue and one requiring a difficult decision on my part. I walked away feeling so pleased that I chose Dr. Sammond as my primary physician. No bad experiences.

I have always received prompt, thorough, effective medical care from Dr. Sammond. I have never been dissatisfied with my care. The only reason I did not rate her as a "10" is that I have never had a critical or severe health problem that we have needed to deal with. In other words, I haven't seen her skills put to the ultimate test. That being said, I think the entire Legacy Medical Group and Legacy Hospital have given me and my husband the best care we have ever received.

Dr Sammond is always very thorough without making me feel rushed during my visits. She reviews everything we covered as well as the plan for addressing any problems. I leave her visits feeling that my concerns have been addressed and I've been well taken care of-can't ask for much more than that!

not sure if I agree with the Legacy rationale of what Medicare should be utilized for-I feel that advocating to keep patients well instead of dealing with them once they are ill seems to be a waste of money & resources.

Dr. Sammond is my primary doctor and I have been a patient for almost 12 years. when I need to see a specialist she always refers me to a few and then I ask her for advice on which one to pick. Because of that I have a couple specialist I have been patients for over 10 years. Dr. Sammond listens to my concerns over taking certain medicines and never tries to change my opinion and gives me alternate choices.I never regret picking her as my primary doctor.

Dr. Sammond was absolutely wonderful. She took the time to sit down and go over my health problems, listen to my concerns and explain her thoughts and treatment course. I've had issues with doctors being dismissive in the past, especially when I've been concerned about medication side effects, and I feel a lot more confident with Dr. Sammond's explanation. Because this is a large medical group, it can be difficult to get in contact with office staff to fix simple problems, like a prescription fax not coming through (which took quite a few phone calls and being transferred around). But I'll deal with the hassle of figuring out administrative stuff if the tradeoff is a doctor I can actually trust.
