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

It would have been helpful to know the post-operative requirements before the appointment so that they could have been planned ahead. They were a surprise and meeting the requirements was disruptive to other obligations I had,

I'm still waiting (not sure what the typical time it usually takes) to read the doctors notes in my electronic file, so that I can google more info on my issues. I called the dr office on Frispday & she said to look for the notes Monday, yesterday, but they weren't posted as of last night.

I really like Dr Hembree and his staff in his office. Always very friendly and professional. I am moving from the area where his office is but I am still going to continue going to his location in Tualatin. He always listens and explains things so well with what is going on with what I am seeing him for. Thank you Dr Hembree and his staff in that office.

I definately would not see this doctor again, as a mater of fact I have already made plans to see another doctor for the same reason. As a matter of fact, the over the counter meds he suggested i use before I started a presciption down the road wasn't even for what was wrong. The problem was my toe nails and the med he suggested said, and I quote ( not for toe nails )

The provider seemed unconcerned with my thoughts or concerns. I was given about 5 minutes of his time, in wich he basically told me there is nothing he can do and that I was looking at a 6 week recovery period. I was given some tape and told to take 2 ibuprofen in the morning and 2 at lunch..My big toe on my right foot is fractured in 2 places and has a bone chip. The two toes next to it are swollen and bruised severely as well, along with the top and side of my foot. I was given no options and no time to express any concerns whatsoever. Then I was rushed out of the office as if I were a burden. It seemed almost like he was irritated that I came to him in pain. Its my opinion that while this doctor may be a very good surgeon according to his resume' - he has little regard for the actual human being he is treating.

I've seen Dr HEMBREE for about 4+ years. I've had dozens of visits, dozens of injections and 2 surgeries, and my foot pain has never been resolved. So despite all the positive I'm still left with terrible foot pain. What can I say?

During my treatment w/Dr. Hembree I made 3 or 4 calls and left messages w/my concerns. Not one was returned. My last visit I tried to explain some problems I had at New Balance Store he referred me to and he kept interrupting me. Very perplexing! and disrespectful! I do not recommend him!

My only complaint is difficulty with the prescribed Anti inflammatory that was not sent to my pharmacy as promised. I did not receive a hard copy of the prescription and as of date, this prescription has not been sent from Dr. Hembree's office. I have left messages with no result.

The Doctor was fine, but his assistant is very rude. I will not be back to this office. I ask the assistance to have the Doctor call me. I had questions regarding a prescription that was required by my insurance to get the orthodics for my feet. The information was either not relayed to the Doctor as I didnt hear from him. I even had Blue Cross call and speak to the assistance. The orthodics would be paid for but I needed the prescription. I have made an appointment with another Doctor per Blue Cross and will never go back to that office. The receptionist was very nice.

We talked about the healing of fungus on my toes, he examined them, talked about taking more meds for another month, got 2 prescriptions filled one for the meds and the other for another cream to use daily on the toes. After that it was social talk the whole time. It was all very pleasant.
