Dr McAnulty is the best medical provider I have ever had. He is so intune with his patients. He is generous with his time and explanations. He listens completely and understands what I say or ask. I trust him completely with my life and well being.

My wait time in the room was rather long, but the doctor had been called to the hospital for an emergency and the staff kept me informed of the delay, plus the doctor apologized.

McAnulty is absolutely the best cardiologist I have ever met. Too bad he is retiring.

Dr. Mc Anulty and his entire staff, to a person are gems. They are kind, informative and take time to answer concerns and do their best to help. I have a lot of anxiety about an impending surgery and am happy to be able to talk to Dr. McAnulty about the path forward.

Dr McAnulty is an exceptional provider. Very respectful, intelligent and thoughtful. Carefully guides the health issues for best care and ability to assess warning signs.

I have been a patient of Dr. McAnulty for years. I have had a number of doctors in my [age removed] years, and he is by far the best. His expertise in the field of cardiology, his razor focus on my medical situation and needs, his basic humanity and caring attention cannot be overstated. I have greatly benefited from his care and am most fortunate to be his patient.

  Feb 22, 2024
Dr McAnulty is by far the best doctor I've ever had. He is simply amazing - ask anyone.

McAnulty is an excellent physician

  Feb 15, 2024
I have been seeing and been treated by Dr. McAnulty for almost twenty years. Dr. McAnulty explained in detail at the onset the basic anatomy of what my issue was and how we would deal with it going forward. He still does this on every annual visit. He has made this a team effort. I have been extraordinarily fortunate to be in his care.

  Feb 15, 2024
Dr. Mcanulty and staff and consummate professionals and are very polite and kind at all times. Under other circumstances I could be good friends with many of them.

I have been a long term patient of Dr. McAnulty and have always been impressed by what a skilled, caring, patient, respectful, articulate, and communicative health care provider he is. I'm extremely fortunate to be a patient of such a gifted and thoughtful physician!

On 1/10 I was almost an hour late for my appointment but still they figured out a way to squeeze me in after a wait.

  Dec 19, 2023
Dr McAnulty has been my cardiologist for sixteen years. I followed him from OHSU to Legacy. I have referred all the members of my extended family with concerns appropriate to his area of practice. He is a remarkably able physician and an extraordinary human being. I am deeply grateful for the care he has provided to me and hope to remain his patient for the remainder of my life.

  Dec 14, 2023
The medical student, and the doctor were both very understanding and receptive, and came up with a very good solution.

  Dec 5, 2023
John McAnulty is arguably one of the best doctors in the entire Legacy system, a doctor renowned for his medical knowledge and his human compassion. He's a great doctor and a wonderful person.Making an appointment with the Legacy cardiology group is a nightmare. Made repeated calls which were never answered directly, left repeated messages, which almost always were not returned. Something is broken within the phone answering system of this group.

  Nov 30, 2023
Doctor is very thorough when he explains all phases of my treatment and procedures that he wants me to go through breaking down the medication that he wants me to take and how they will affect me. He doesn't rush me and he answers every question that I asked him and seems very concerned about my health.

Sorry my provider is retiring

  Nov 2, 2023
Dr. McAnulty is one of the best doctors I have ever been treated by. Not only does he have extensive knowledge and experience, but his listening skills and ability to make a patient feel comfortable and understand all the issues are outstanding.

I view John McAnulty as royalty in the cardiology arena. Best of the best.

  Oct 24, 2023
New to Legacy from Kaiser. Time to see Dr WAY TOO LONG. Area of visit (downtown PDX) not easy to access. Compared to Kaiser, physical facilities are clean, but worn.Still do not understand this new billing (on my wife's health insurance now - I recently retired)

  Oct 18, 2023
Dr. McAnulty is very thorough and listens and offers relative information and options to resolve my medical difficulties.

Excellent cardiologist - very knowledgeable and caring.

  Oct 3, 2023
This doctor is a model for all other doctors to emulate. He is the best I have ever had. He is caring, professional, highly skilled, intuitive, and personable. If only you could clone him!

  Aug 31, 2023
The whole team listened closely with respect and were exceptionally knowledgeable. They worked together well and shared useful information. This is obviously a reflection of the exceptional leadership and manner of Dr. McAnulty.

A physician who really cares and an office staff that behaves similarly.

  Aug 2, 2023
Best Doctor ever. So sad he will be retiring.

  Jul 25, 2023
This was the single best doctor's appt of my life. It was the first time in over 50 yrs on this planet that a doctor had taken the time to carefully read my chart history, look at all tests and recent visits PRIOR to my visit and then took a bit of time to get to know me and my perspective on my health issues BEFORE discussing the matter with me. It was also the first time that my weight or losing weight was not immediately brought up to me in an appointment. Dr McaNulty treated me like a thinking, feeling human being. He was kind and thorough and thoughtfully went through all the results and worked with me to come up with a plan to aid me in my challenge when traditional medicine would not usually have had much to offer in my situation . I appreciated his approach, him explaining without talking down to me, and his caring non-judgmental attitude. We NEED so many more physicians like him.

There is no better doctor in Oregon.

Greeted by name. Medical assistant took my vitals and I asked for results and she told me the numbers. Dr. McAnulty was prepared with background even though it had been 2 yrs since I last saw him. We went over my concerns and he commented on them ten proceeded to do manual testing of my pulse in several points, listened to my lungs and checked venous sufficiency. He was very thorough and it was decided to have one more CAT scan to check an enlarged aorta.

  Jul 13, 2023
Everything was excellent except that Dr. McAnulty should have a scribe or a dictation machine. It seemed a little hard for him to type and that is not necessary in this tech age. He's a conscientious provider with enormous wisdom but typing is hard for him.

  Jul 13, 2023
I had a different MA before and after and it was unsettling for me.

  Jul 10, 2023
I was unable to confirm my appointment time by phone. Attempted x 3.

  Jul 10, 2023
All good!

  Jun 29, 2023
The only issue is He will be retiring

  Jun 21, 2023
ONLY because this provider has indicated there may be a change in his availability in the coming year. Over the years, Dr. McAnulty's care has been indispensable. He is trusted, reliable, an able and avid communicator, and has achieved a level of experience that is un/seldom matched in his field. I've benefitted enormously from his care. Should he depart from Legacy, I have no doubt that I will be referred to the most capable hands available.

  Jun 19, 2023
Dr. McAnulty is a joy and a pleasure. I wish more physicians were like him.

  Jun 15, 2023
