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

It's always a positive experience whether in person or a virtual appointment. She knows my history and explains my questions and her decisions extremely well. It's a dialogue that I appreciate. My first appointment with her was '[date removed] after I'd been hospitalized for a stroke.

Dr Dryden is the first PCP I have ever had who doesn't make me feel rushed or like her mind is somewhere else. She makes eye contact when she is talking to me rather than just using the computer. And she always makes sure she has addressed all of my concerns and questions. I appreciate her patience and how thorough she is.

I had a lot of trouble with calling in for an appointment with 4 people in the office I am surprised that I had to call several times to get through. Also had a problem with the receptionist about requesting an EKG that is routine. Teach them what the office provides!

This was my first visit to Dr. Dryden (just moved into town). I selected her because of Legacy's reputation and separately Dr. Dryden's excellent review.. Dr. Dryden met my very high expectations based on my prior research, in fact EXCEEDED them. I am very, very pleased that she will be my primary care physician. She and her team not only listened extremely care, but had excellent medical knowledges and demonstrated real care about me and my medical issues. I am thrilled that my wife will be seeing Dr. Dryden for her intake meeting early next month. I could not be more pleased that Dr. Dryden will be my and my wife's doctor!

I have been Type 2 diabetic for years and even though I have actively sought information, I learned more about my diabetes and resources for more information in my first visit to Dr. Dryden than I have ever learned from previous doctors or classes. Dr. Dryden took time to answer all my questions and gave me clear instructions and recommendations going forward. I am excited to have a doctor who stays well educated on Type 2 diabetes. Dr. Dryden's Medical Assistant Kassidy and the staff at the clinic are extremely helpful and welcoming, making me feel at ease and assured that they genuinely care about my well-being.
