I feel waiting 45 minutes on the phone for someone to answer and giving up and hanging up is not how a front office should run. They need more staff to answer phones.

Dr Borden seemed to not understand the pain level I was in. Didn't go into any possible solution to the pain other than pain meds and muscle relaxers. I was looking for a root solution to the pain not just something that would mask it for a few hours. I felt there was enough pain and information given Dr Borden to admit me to the hospital. He disagreed. I'm sitting at home now taking medication with no solution in site.

Been Dr. Borden's pt. for 20+ yrs. Always pays attention, approachable, knowledgeable. Also, the reception staff are very nice each visit. Some/many receptionists in OTHER Legacy offices are unfriendly and have an "attitude." Why are so many offices like that: Unfriendly, don't listen, act rushed when people come in sick, soared, confused. I sit in waiting rooms observing the UNKIND behavior of staff. Dr. Borden's staff are all very nice!

Dr. Borden has been my doctor for at least 25 years. I maybe one of the first patients he had at his first office on NW Lovejay St. (I believe he was 29-years old at the time.) He has been very kind to me over the years. Each visit is a bit different as is life itself! I appreciate him and hope he sees me out of this world.

This was my first visit to this facility and the team of receptionists, nurses and primary care doctor. I have had the unfortunate experience of receiving very poor care from Greenfield Health over the past 16 months so I know what it's like when doctors don't believe me or do not listen to what I am saying, do not discuss recent events, feelings and disregard XRays showing my fractured cervical spine. It was so bad that I gave up healing and gave in to failing health. I have been on the receiving end of poor health care by providers who treated me like a statistic or an anomaly and it cost me dearly. I finally got out of that situation and landed an affordable health plan that I could afford. My very first impression once on the plan was when an on-boarding team proactively contacted me to align me with a new Primary Care Physician in the network. I was flabbergasted and in disbelief that a medical facility wanted to help me get on track with the daunting task of "where do I start?" In the brief moments where I spoke with the onboarding specialist, I knew I finally found real people who really cared. She listened as I highlighted my past experience and my current health situation and she did so with mindfulness and care. She immediately signed me up with Dr Borden. I had to wait about a month to get the appointment but I was not disappointed when I got to meet him and the nice people at the facility. For the first time in years, I felt like someone cared for me and wanted to see me get better. I teared up a little when I got in my car to leave because of the negativity and resentment from the past experiences. I was so grateful that I found such a good doctor and a good healthcare plan. I am grateful.

Blood test were ordered. I called the Legacy lab and got an appointment that was 45 minutes out. That was good, except the time that I finally got in was about 50 minutes later than the appointment. I can accept 15 to 30 minutes late, but 50 is a bit much.
