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

Dr. Jan is somewhat introverted & it is difficult to completely understand him.

Communication between Jan Jay scheduler and cardiologist & patient was terrible! Postponed surgery probably 6 to 8 weeks. Patient had to get involved to get resolution. Very frustrating!

Dr. referred me to a specialist @ OHSU for a second opinion which I think is a good idea. I appreciated his opinions to this option.

Worst experience of my entire life! I was told everything would be great and I would feel like a new man with no issues, this was not the case and definitely not my experience.

I met with Dr. Jan in the clinic of Legacy's transplant team. I very much appreciated the calm, friendly compassionate and professional demeanor of not only Dr. Jan but each member of the transplant team who helped me from the beginning of the donor evaluation process, during my hospital stay and through my recovery. From day one I was well-informed, supported and cared for every step of the journey. I already believed this team of caregivers to be the very best and now I have personal experience as evidence. Thank you Dr. Jan and Legacy Transplant!

My provider instilled confidence in me from the moment he began explaining things to me and answering my questions. I would not hesitate to recommend him for my own family. But this is about more than a single provider. I went in for emergency surgery on an obstruction in my small intestine. From the moment I arrived and an orderly ran to grab me a wheelchair in the ED, through the entire process, of surgery and recovery, I was treated with respect and compassion. The surgeon, two resident interns and the entire nursing staff provided care that was unparalleled, 24 hours a day for a full week. The Chief of Staff even came to check on me multiple times. The care that I received while recovering was unbelievable. Though there were a couple of nurses who stood out in their compassion and kindness, if I were to name them it would place them ahead of the entire care team. This would not be fair because together, this entire team deserves to be recognized as rock stars in their profession.
