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 am so glad I was seen by Dr. Garreau. I had a breast infection that was leaving a lot of clues and she helped pull all the pieces together. She made me feel confident that she knew what was happening, things were progressing towards healing, but she was there if it back tracked. I appreciated the time she took. I was a patient who doesn't have cancer, but also needed guidance. I got that! Thank you!

Doctor always answers your questions willingly and with respect and spends the necessary time to answer and make sure you understand her answer. She is always so pleasant and puts you at ease. Nothing bad to report on this doctor or her staff.

Dr. Garreau is not only a great surgical oncologist, but one of the best humans I know. She has excellent interpersonal skills. She is practiced at active listening, is warm and extremely compassionate! She and her staff are all excellent and have the highest standard of care that I have ever experienced.

Dr. Garreau is attentive and personable. She observed & adapted her approach based on my understanding of what she was explaining. She was clearly very bright but, as I've heard her described by others, she's a "real person".

Dr Garreau was warm, compassionate & knowledgeable providing a strong sense of confidence in her car. She took time to answer all questions & explain the recommended plan. Dr Garreau is a sweetheart. I sent my work release and disability information to her office and told the staff it was faxed; the staff did not give me confidence that this was a high priority and would take care of the paperwork needed by my employer, Legacy.

After leaving Dr. Garreau's office, my mother said "Dr. Garreau is one of the best Dr's I've ever seen". "Cancer is a devastating disease and Dr. Garreau has the unique ability to make me feel good and upbeat after seeing her". "I would highly recommend her".

Dr. Garreau is one of my most favorite doctors of all time (and I have had a lot)! Not only is she an expert in her field, but she is full of empathy and compassion. She is so easy to understand and thoroughly listens to my concerns. The entire office staff is wonderful; caring and kind, thorough and helpful. I have unfortunately known many women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer as I was, and I always recommend Dr. Garreau.

While I see Dr. Garreau for issues regarding my breast cancer surgery, I am always treated as an individual person and not a machine to be mended. Even when I see her for serious issues which she addresses candidly, I, and my husband, come away with a positive feeling.

Dr Garreau and Austin have been amazing during my breast cancer diagnosis, surgery and after care. They made me feel much better about a very scary time in my life. I would recommend them to everyone going through something like this! I wish she was my regular doctor too. Great person!

Dr. Garreau is the best doctor I've ever had! She has a very positive, optimistic approach and explains info/options well - making it easy to understand. And it's not just me who thinks this; a neighbor who had BC told me "you have to go to my Dr....Dr. Garreau". Thank you, I truly appreciate the care I've been receiving.
