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 would've liked to talk about more issues but didn't feel comfortable bringing anything up. I wasn't asked if there was anything else and I felt awkward. no connection with him. he's very nice but don't like not feeling comfortable enough to open up to my doctor. might switch to another provider in the office.

Alicia and Dr. Bowden have taken care of my family through many pediatric visits, medical concerns, and regular check-ups. I feel that they listen well, answer absolutely every question, and go above and beyond for our little crazy family.

I would say that the front office could be a little more friendlier. when calling they are very short and seem annoyed when they have to answer questions or help with anything. When checking in I had to wait while they left the desk unattended for over 5 minutes and then they were not nice. I don't know what the day was like for them but they didn't seem satisfied with their job. the medical assistant is always so amazing! she is always so nice and makes me feel comfortable. Dr. Bowden is so nice and helpful. he makes me feel like he really cares and is genuinely concerned for my health.
