Explained my health issues extremely well

Dr. Drood is exceptional in both his knowledge, organization, and kindness towards his patients. He treat you like a family member. The receptionist today was not like any other has been in that office: Curt, difficult to understand it would not speak up when asked. It was like dealing with a robot and not very well programmed robot.

Dr was very pleasant and a great listener. He seemed genuinely concerned about [name removed] health and concerns. He answered all our questions.

I was confused why I would need an EKG when I had a stress echo in the last few months. It feels like it was unnecessary.

Everyone was very nice and very professional

Doc is very busy takes awhile to get appointment . Though no fault of doc's. If it was an emergency I am sure I would be taken care of .

Dr. Drood is always looking for the answer to the problem. He explains what he's thinking and why so that you can follow his reasoning, which establishes confidence in his decisions and promotes trust. He doesn't doctor at you he doctors with you, and that's rare nowadays.

This was a first visit/establish new patient/transfer from out of the area. Although I initially had difficulty getting the process started, it has since been a smooth transition.

  Jul 26, 2023
It took 4 months to get in to the office after I made the initial appointment. I was on my way to the office when the appointment was cancelled because the doctor that I had the appointment with did not treat my condition. I finally got my appointment and after meeting Dr. Drood I am very happy that I now have a cardiologist.

Dr. Drood, my cardiologist, is a really great person to discuss my heart related issues with. If he represents a typical professional in Legacy's practice group, I will look for additional opportunities to engage!

This was my first visit to legacy cardiology & Dr Drood. From check-in to ekg technician to Dr Drood, the appointment was better than expected.

  Apr 13, 2023
The wait time in the waiting room was long. My appointment was at 9:30. Didn't get in the exam room till close to 10:00. Had to wait another 30 minutes or more to get the device check and see the doctor.

  Mar 10, 2023
I thought Dr. Drood was very pleasant and knowledgeable, he listened carefully to my heart and lungs, and to what I was saying. In fact, he had a remarkable memory for my exact words (as evidenced by his summary I read later). I was very relieved that he didn't order any more tests to track down the cause of my chest pain, and agreed with me and the ER doctor that it was probably muscle strain.

I found Dr Drood Friendly and Professional and asked good questions to get a good perspective of My families Health issues over the years and how my Health Issues relate to my Family and what they dealt with!! I am the last remaining Family Member including Aunts, uncles, Grandparents, parents and siblings.

All was professional/ friendly. A pleasant experience. Would recommend to others.

Dr. Drood is a perfect Cardiologist in my eyes. He listens. He instructs. He is well informed on medications, the field of cardiology, and the inter-relationship between different illnesses/conditions. He will also gently confront me if I appear to be in denial. I always have the sense that he values me as a person as well as a patient. In my eyes he gets an A+++. His office staff is very knowledgeable and caring also. Example of this was one of the front office people walking with me across a sky bridge that triggered a phobia in me. I give this office my very highest praise!

Attentive, caring and concerned

  Dec 6, 2022
My appointment was at 12:45, I sat in the room for about an hour, alone. No one checked in with me, around 1:40 ish Drood finally came in, gave me a talk about everything I already knew from when my EKG was done.. Then after 2-3 minutes on being in the room he LEFT to speak to another doctor on the phone for 5 minutes. Came back in and we said our goodbyes. It felt like a complete waste of my time and a horrible way to treat a patient. I left forgotten in the exam room, just left there for an hour with zero reason why the wait was so long. Something that should of taken me 15 minutes ended up being and hour and a half. The receptionists were amazing, very kind. However I will not be seeing Drood again, maybe it's my age, but it doesn't feel he respects my words, time, or self the way he does the older patients.

  Nov 29, 2022
Dr. Drood was very patient with me and answered all of my questions - even some outside his area of expertise. He is a good communicator and seems genuinely interested in the patient.
