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

I'm never disrespected or mistreated during any of my visits, although I feel there are doctors out there that just don't seem to truly listen, and try to understand/ empathize what a patient could be going through, especially with a mental illness. He is just one of them. I feel like when I explain my issues, especially those that aren't normal for me, he tends to generalize them into the general population, and not by each individual's normalcy. There are times I have requested to try a prescription for symptoms, and if he's got his own opinion on that medicine, he blows that symptom off and I'm just stuck trying to deal with it on my own. Again, it's probably just not a good fit for me ave I just need to search for another doctor that would be. mental illness is tough for anyone to relate to, or understand, if they have never dealt with it themselves.

Miquel, Dr. Walker's assistant was most helpful, as always. I required a [details deleted to protect privacy], all of which were performed at Legacy Mount Angel. Dr. Walker spent a great deal of time with me, reviewing when my last important tests had been performed. I couldn't ask for nicer assistants in the front office or a better health care team.

It would have been easier & more accurate to have received this questionnaire closer to the visit asked about.

Really helped me, he's the best care provider you could have care for you. I will cry when he retires.

I went in because of a chronic condition with my spine (multiple herniation's in all areas with 2 fusions in my cervical spine.) He did not remember any of this, my chronic pain issues due to my condition, or why I was evaluated by specialists he referred me to... I do NOT typically take narcotics for my pain & when I asked for something to help reduce my pain I was told he would order prednisone, but he would not order any narcotic because he could be charged with a crime... "but euthanasia is still legal...." (I know it was an attempt at humor, but considering I was holding back tears & couldn't sit, lay flat, walk, etc without extreme pain? Wasn't amused....) The last time I had ANY narcotic Rx was >1 year ago (hardly an addict....) But he did refer me for another lumbar MRI & to see a Rhumatologist to follow up on my pain issues & treat my pain issues.... (I have been asking for this referral to a rheumatologist for over a year).... It is definitely time to find a new provider - as 4 other people I know who have this provider are doing, as well.

I had a good experience with Dr. Walker. He is a good Dr. But one thing you do need to do is hire more managers at the Silverton Hospital. So more cross training and retention can be accomplished. Also keep the patient care at a personal level, and not so much as just being a number or more dollars for the Legacy Medical Group! Take care of your Employees and keep the pay and Benefits fair and equal across all of Legacy's facilities where possible. Make Legacy the desired place to go and work!

This appointment was for my 5 yr. old daughter's well-child. Dr. Walker was very attentive to my daughter & answered all her questions as best he could understand her. I'm very grateful for his patience & understanding. She liked him as a doctor.

The wait time in the waiting room was 15 minutes past my mom's appointment. The wait time in the exam room for the doctor was at least 15-20 minutes. Our appointment was at 3pm and we left at 4:15pm. From an outsiders perspective, I witnessed a lot of "visiting" among staff members - in the reception area and exam area.

Although this is a busy office, all of the staff and the doctor make me feel like I am the only patient on their radar when they are visiting with me.

I am generally healthy and have been on a BP med for a longtime, no need to talk to anyone often as there are no problems. A lot of the tests and procedures the insurance pushes, I don't feel I need right now. This Doctor is very good and if I were having a problem or had a family history that indicated a need then fine. But that is not the case. Thank you.

I feel like I am being juried when I call for an appointment. The one who answers the phone asks so many questions. I think if I ask for an appointment it should be _____ forthwith!

There were a lot of people out unexpectedly so that is why the wait was longer than usual. They apologized for the wait and provided the same care I count on even though they were short handed. I chose this group because I believe they are better than my other options for preventative and proactive care.

I originally went to this office to see Dr. Ramos, and I did see her 2 or 3 times, but I was passed on to Dr Walker when Dr Ramos' restricted her office hours. I still feel that Dr Walker does a good job as my primary care provider, and trust that whenever necessary he will refer me to a specialist as well as consult with Dr Ramos, and my coronary care provider, [name deleted to protect privacy]

I am always treated in the best way by Dr. Walker and his staff. I wouldn't go anywhere else for primary care. They take special interests in my conditions. Always explain things that I understand. Take into consideration that I am hearing impaired and speak where I can hear and understand them.

Dr Walker was thorough and explained the solutions he thinks will help my bronchial condition improve. He prescribed medications and advised me to check in if my condition didn't improve.
