Maybe she was having a bad day, but she seemed cold and uncaring, and perhaps a bit argumentative, and it took me by surprise. I will change providers if this becomes the norm. I am a friendly and respectful patient.

Dr.Sammond responded to a lot of information and questions regarding various concerns and history with clarity and helpful guidance. She was quite generous with time spent 1:1, and in follow up notes to labs, & diagnostic tests. Considering the load all MDs must be experiencing, she was kind, patient, and calm.

Dr. Sammond and the staff did an excellent job. This is not the normal experience I have had at Legacy. It had been very poor during my last few visits (I even wrote a complaint that wasn't properly followed up on), with this latest one being the exception. Yesterday, The response regarding finding a time to have me come in, getting me through quickly and correctly, the interaction with Dr Sammond and having her prepare the prescription the way she did was excellent. I really appreciate it. Thank you

Dr. Sammond always spends ample time with me so I never feel rushed or like I didn't have time to ask all my questions. She's so supportive when I have lost weight and lowered my A1C. Her encouragement is so important as is her attentiveness and ability to communicate honestly with me.

In addition to regular annual physical check-ups, Dr. Sammond saw me on an emergency basis last summer when I injured my knee. She was very helpful in ensuring that I got an x-ray and a referral to an orthopedic surgeon. All turned out well and the diagnosis was as she suspected. She has always been thoughtful and thorough and very helpful with explaining concerns. I very much appreciate Dr. Sammond.

In case this isn't obvious from my responses, Dr. Sammond is the best medical doctor I have ever had. And this is from a person who has had a long history of holding a slight bit of distrust for Western medicine and the healthcare industry in this country more generally.
