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

Arrogant, judgemental. Disregarded what I had to say and didn't take the information into consideration. Jumped to conclusions.

I have been very happy with Dr. Koehler each time I've visited with him. He is very professional, knowledgeable and listens to my concerns. I am very happy to have him as my primary care physician. I don't need to go to the doctor very often so don't have a lot to compare to. But, overall, he is great! The staff was wonderful too.

Dr. Koehler is a very warm and friendly doctor (with a great sense of humor). He got all the information he needed to make good recommendations for my situation and got me to the lab immediately after we were done. He continues to set up lab work and times with other specialists as needed. I highly recommend this great doctor.

The visit was excellent. We discussed in detail about my being prediabetic and how to further address it, discussed the lab results that I had prior to the visit, briefly talked about my weight gain and borderline high blood pressure. It was a great discussion with Dr Koehler

This was a physical exam, not a wellness visit. I still don't know how one gets a PHYSICAL exam no clothing is removed, not even shoes or shirt. Maybe things have changed.

He is very matter of fact which I like, but he didn't ask me what my concerns were. He obsessed on my being overweight, which I acknowledged to be true. We discussed exercise options but he didn't want to accept that I have limitations with arthritis in my back and limited use of my right knee. He didn't want to hear about the person I am or what I used to be or what my health goals are. He pre-qualified me by my looks and I felt judged when I told him about being on a certain medication. He tells instead of asking, he over talks and doesn't listen. I felt like I was pigeonholed. If you were to ask him who I am and what I want, he couldn't answer the question. I think he cares, but in a dictatorial fashion. He has potential as a doctor, but he need to slow down and get to know his patients this hopefully will come with time and experience. He was all about testing and diagnostics. Ok, as a health professional myself I get that. He was going off of the fact that he didn't have my records. I would probably do the same. He questioned the advice and direction that was given to me my other doctors, that is a huge red flag for me.

Dr. Koehler is a very sharp young man and I appreciate getting his input on my health anomalies. He was instrumental in referring me to OHSU so that I could get a second opinion with a very trusted Doctor. He also recommended PT for my sacrum issues and that turned out to be very helpful. He definitely listens to a patient's concerns and he tries to come up with a reasonable strategy to help the patient.

Dr. Koehler seems to prefer patients with a specific worldview than others and accommodates those more favored patients with a higher quality of respect. A doctor would've received better feedback if they did not challenge patients on who they may or may not be and instead focused on promoting good health and well-being.

My previous doctor passed away and I needed to find another one. I am beyond happy that I have Dr Koehler as my Dr now. I couldn't ask for anyone better. He is very nice and makes me feel relaxed. He is very thorough in his exams and is very good about asking health related questions. I highly recommend Dr. John Koehler to anyone seeking an amazing doctor!

the Legacy network is difficult to schedule appointments when, at times. i need to visit with the doctor for things that come up and need quicker attention. it seems to me Legacy needs a better fix for immediate needs.longer term 2 to 3 week out appointments are fine.this is a more general comment on the health care.it looks like legacy has the doctors booked aittle tight as sometimes visits need more time.this is the se ond year i rsceived the flu shot and the seco d time my shoulder is black and blue fro. the needle. not sure why this is.

The only bad comment I have is that it felt like he didn't really remember me and my past medical issues even being surprised I am on a medication he prescribed to me and forgetting that he stopped prescribing another. overall I am pleased with my provider though.

Dr. Koehler explained the likely cause of the medical problem I was having and left me with a strong feeling based on this plausible explanation that my problem was unlikely to become worse and how to recognize if additional follow up was necessary. He also suggested some features of my exercise pattern that may have exacerbated the problem and suggested that I modify the exercise pattern to reduce the possibility that it was adding to the difficulty that I was experiencing.

After the doctor left me to wait for the paperwork, I was left in the room for over 30 minutes. I believe I was "lost".

Very efficient office with friendly, professional staff. Dr Koehler was very knowledgeable, and knew a lot of current studies that helped us discuss my treatment plan. He ordered blood work, and I was sent to Legacy Lab in the same building. It turns out, Dr. Koehler is in my network, but the lab is not. Fortunately, the lab receptionist took the time to call [name removed] and track down a lab that is in network. She was great - I apologize for not getting her name [details removed to protect privacy].

My Dr appears to be a very good, and engaged My only comment would be to remove the controversial NRA monthly news magazine from the waiting rooms m- highly inappropriate for a waiting room, and when I asked the intake staff about it, she just blew it off.

I've been to several doctors over my life and Dr. Koehler is the best. He listens and actually cares ! Rare these days. I hope the doctor and staff will be told what a great job they all do. I've been with you for about 5 years and unless something changes I will be with Dr. Koehler until my death. Legacy should be proud they have him and that staff on your team.

This was my first physical exam with Dr. Koehler. There was so little interaction that I don't have a basis to say good or bad. My only impression is that Dr. Koehler does has some difficulty relating to my wife and I... I suspect because of our age. He did make some attempts but did not really follow through. For example; noticed I was wearing a shirt with fish on it, asked if I was a fisherman, I said I wasn't so he quickly moved on before I could suggest something that would interest me.
