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 like that he doesn't beat around the bush. I don't want a doctor to sugarcoat things.

I've always had a great experience with the entire staff, especially with the EEG tech I had during my 3 day EEG.

Dr. John Dempster is a very helpful and effective neurologist. I have been seeing him and his staff for [years removed] years. His scheduler is very helpful & easy to work with, I would highly recommend them.

Well this is my first time seeing this doctor. I can only speak for myself, but I can let them know how I feel, but they have to see for them self. You can't judge the book by looking at it cover. So far he seem pretty good.

Dr. Dempster is wonderful. His staff is so kind. The only thing I would change is that I felt a little rushed and didn't get to ask all my questions.

Provider was rude, constantly interrupted, seemed "rushed." I had other concerns I wished to address. He continued to pressure me to answer him quickly. I felt mentally exhausted and disrespected at the end of my appointment.

Dr. Dempster was compassionate, knowledgeable and understanding of my mother's health conditions. He was able to diagnose her situation quickly and was able to communicate it clearly so that she could understand. She probably won't remember it, but she could understand it at the time he was explaining. Dr. Dempster gave us recommendations on follow-up care that may effect her overall health. I am thankful for a doctor to tell my mom something and help her understand that her medical and previous habit history is playing a huge part in her current condition.

Doctor was very informed, but ALMOST lost patience with patient. DSP accompanying patients intertwined & de-escalated. Patient can be difficult, but patience reputation, & visual aids really help. Translator was amazing. In the future, please feel free to ask DSP for help. DPS's are there to help! Thank you.
