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

On the whole Dr. Slack is a very good doctor. However I'm very frustrated in the fact that I had to request blood test for Hashimoto's and when it was confirmed there was no follow on for what could or should be done about Hashimoto's.

Dr Slack is an excellent, caring, and special physician and person. She has been my doctor for a decade. The BEST physician I have had bar none. She is why I use Legacy. And a word too about Dr Slack's assistant; Shannon is terrific. She models Dr Slack's professional but personally caring attitude. They make a great team.

I am in the process of moving to [location removed]. My son has suggested that I need to find a doctor closer to home. I told him that I can't imagine finding a doctor anywhere else who shows the respect and understanding I receive from Dr. Slack. She knows my affinity for alternative/integrative medicine and works with it. I deeply appreciate her acceptance that I have a team of doctors who inform my decisions and that Western medicine is only one viewpoint I consider when making decisions. At the same time, I have great respect for the knowledge and wisdom she brings. I will happily cross the bridge to remain a patient of hers.

I am very impressed with the quick, quality responses I get from any message, or any test, or visit to urgent care. I get a phone call from my clinic the next business morning, asking about how i'm doing and what do I need? It's the best care that I've had.

My provider seems to know her stuff. That being said, she always seems rushed, doesn't quite have the level of care and concerns I need, is charting but not completely listening. I like her but more as a person than my doctor.

My appointment was at 5:15, the front desk staff called day of saying I need to be there at lest 20 minutes before my appointment, which seemed more than normal. After I arrived and checked in at 4:55, the front desk staff went around and locked the doors and without saying anything to me left for for the weekend, leaving me in the reception area alone. I was very confused about who to go to if I had questions or concerns and was concerned about the security since I could have gone behind the counter and no one would have know. This seems like a patience security risk to leave patience unattended with the front desk accessible and a safety concern if someone were to have a medical emergency.

I prefer practices that match an MA to a physician so I can work with the same MA either through the portal or on the phone. It's just as important for them to know patients. I've wasted a lot of time having to re-educate a different MA either on the phone or in the office.

As always at Legacy, the wait time was abysmal. It was 45 minutes before my name was called, and after seeing the assistant, another 10 minutes before the doctor came in. Beyond the annoyance and waste of time, people do have to work during the day, and an additional hour on a mid-day appointment isn't trivial. I detailed several concerns to the doctor--not life threatening or anything, but of definite concern to me--that were treated with a cookie-cutter routine template response that pretty much ignored facts the doctor knew (or should have known, because I had just told her) about my lifestyle.

I've been a patient of Dr. Slack for many years. she always makes me feel comfortable even when discussing potentially serious matters. she listens carefully and inquires for better understanding. when needed, she makes appropriate referrals to other specialists but keeps in touch on any health issue under evaluation. I've moved out of the area, but will continue to drive to Portland to see her.
