  Apr 17, 2023
Easy, thorough visit.

  Apr 17, 2023
Nurse or PA has zero personality, and the patient seems to be a pain in the butt to her. Her attitude stinks. If she would have casual conversation even it would be better than her dry, stanch not non-sense, holier than though attitude she portrays to the patient. She makes the patient feel uncomfortable.

  Apr 17, 2023

  Feb 28, 2023
Dr. Sammond was interested in my misfortune of 2 mini strokes, went over my results of the blood test and recommended that I buy a Diabetic cooking book to eat healthier to prevent Diabetes. I am pre-diabetic. She supported the emergency room Dr. Who told me not to drive for 3 weeks! I feel 100% fine in balance, sight, judgment, and physical abilities and felt that that advice was harsh. I'm taking his advice and letting others drive me.

  Feb 22, 2023

  Jan 26, 2023
Dr. Sammond is attentive and puts a great deal of thought into the care she gives at the time she is working with you. However, all follow up care is entirely up to her patients. I don't think that's entirely on her. It seems the face of modern medicine to no longer seamlessly care for patients.

  Jan 26, 2023

Great annual check-up! Dr Sammond recommended that I try Red Rice Yeast to lower cholesterol at my annual check-up last year. I added Red Rice Yeast to my diet for a full year and today I learned that my cholesterol improved greatly. Dr Sammond reported the findings from the blood test I had yesterday and said to keep up with diet and exercise. This was a terrific non drug therapy that really helped! I am very pleased.

Dr.Sammond responded immediately to a crisis situation that developed as a result of a questionable test result by The Portland Clinic prior to a colonoscopy scheduled for the following week which caused them to suspend my procedure. Thanks to Dr. Sammond's lightening-fast intervention, Legacy redid the tests and proved that the Portland Clinic's test result was flawed. She contacted the Gastroenterolgist and as a result the procedure will proceed as scheduled. I am profoundly grateful to Dr. Sammond!

This was only the second time I've seen dr sammond and it was a "physical" which was kind of a waste of time. I didn't know I had to have a separate appointment to discuss any health or meds issues. I was a bit frustrated.

She is so good I drive in from Salem!

I appreciate the prompt feedback on lab test results. The lab personnel were very capable and efficient in handling a high volume of patients. I am always impressed with the skill of the person who draws blood.

  Jul 22, 2022
I was unaware that now apparently patients are not allowed to discuss any health concerns during a routine exam. At the time of my exam I did have some other questions regarding my general health. However, since I am in good health I will not be making a separate appointment to discuss these. I would also appreciate my provider being able to give me her personal opinion on a subject that I ask her about rather than a standard answer that I might get from the internet or the media. Is this something that is not allowed? All the above being said, I am very satisfied with Legacy Health. I've never had to wait long to get an appointment and appreciate that when referred to another office, I get a call from that particular provider almost immediately. I've talked to several friends who have to wait weeks/months to get any kind of appointment. I appreciate that is not the case with Legacy.

  Jul 21, 2022
Love Dr Sammond

  Jul 21, 2022

Dr Sammond and I have been a team since 2003. I don't know what I would do without her.She is kind and always there for me.I am so lucky.

  Jul 12, 2022
Dr, Sammond is focused, patient oriented and engaging. She is aware of treatment provided by specialists in cardiology and urology. She always discusses how these specialists' courses of treatment integrate into her treatment plans as my primary care provider. I especially like that she has this very good overall awareness and understanding of all aspects of my medical care.I'm fortunate that she is my PCP.

  Jul 7, 2022
Recently Legacy is lack of sufficient staff. So that the service is delayed, hope it will improve soon.

  Jul 7, 2022
The visit was very good. I resent that because I am on Medicare I can't make an appt thru your app. I have to question what u feel is wrong w Medicare patients that they r incapable of making appts on line. If they don't like using computers they r going to call anyway.
