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 arrived on time for my appointment but I had to wait, even though I was the first patient of the day. I heard the staff talking about who got what pastry among other things. I just wanted to get taken back and see the provider. They also made patients wait on hold to have other discussions that could have happened later. They are a nice group, but they need to prioritize the patients in the office and take care of misc things on the side when they don't impact care and getting people in/out. PS: I do really like the doctor.

Hembree could use a refresher course in communication w/patients! "I've done a thousand of these" only reflects his arrogance.

I rather doubt I would be asked to make a recommendation regarding a foot doctor, but if requested to provide one, I would nominate Dr. Hembree.

I started seeing dr. Hembree for a very specific problem a few months ago and have been extremely pleased with the results. He is knowledgeable, professional and courteous, always answering my questions and giving me advice on how to keep the original issue from recurring.

I wasn't very disposed to explain situations about my foot & ankle health, so I would have appreciated questioning me about my ANKLE (on the right) problem.

Other members of my family (siblings recommended Dr. Hembree to me because I could barely walk on my left foot - I walked fine after he started treatment and ordered the proper shoes from his recommendation and it changed my life.

I have been very pleased with the care I have received from Dr Hembree. He is always pleasant, never rushed, always takes the time to carefully explain procedures and give explanation for using them, always listens to whatever concerns I have and is careful to address them during my visit. He or his staff always follow up to be sure that my condition is being treated as fully as it can be.

My doctor at Legacy Medical Clinic referred me to Dr. Hembree due to an unhealing ulcer on the pad of my rt. big toe. Dr. Hembree examined my foot, gave instructions for treatment, including ointment & pads: No issues with visit.

Unfortunate but not serious: The physician did not recommend stopping a blood-thinning medication that would have reduced excessive bleeding. He admitted that this was his fault. Good: The physician, medical assistant, and front desk associate were all extremely friendly, competent, and interested in conveying a warm, caring attitude. There were minor, unexpected complications during the visit, and all care-givers extended service "beyond the call."

Dr. Hembree was able to save two toes that were injured in an accident. He was a 2nd opinion as another dr. (not in Legacy) wanted toes removed. Very happy w/his plan.

No visit summary was provided. The doctor wrote the name of the condition on a post it note and gave it to me. The doctor spent at most ten minutes with me, which is all that was needed for him to assess the nature of the 'nodule' on my toe. However, when I asked, the clerk at the front desk advised the cost would be between $300 and $600. This is outrageous for a ten minute visit.

When I first called for an appt. I was told I had to wait 2 wks. I was in so much pain it really upset me but then I decided to call again & a young man named Hunter gave me an appt. for that week. That was amazing considering my condition. I'll never forget that. Thanks Hunter!

Dr. Hembree was unprofessional and rude to me. I had 2 questions about my surgery and he refused to answer them and caustically told me to stop complaining, the surgery was excellent and I just needed to follow the recovery protocol and he didn't operate on the 3 toes that I had complaints of continuing pain, bruising and swelling on. He didn't inspect them or attempt to answer my questions. He raised his voice to me and was totally condescending. He should retire or be retrained.

Dr. Hembree initially treated me for a bunion removal. He is also treating a foot fungus which we understand is a long-term thing. I have been treated well, and hope to continue treatment as needed.
