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

Dr. Oppenheimer is the best doctor I have ever had. He actually listened to me, whereas other doctors relied only on lab tests to treat me. He went that extra mile for me to see specialists when I needed to. I feel I have control of my life now and am a healthy person thanks to his excellent care. I hate to see him go but wish him the best in his retirement.

Me, my wife, her mother, father and sister all worked with Dr Oppenheimer and to tell the truth we all loved him and looked forward to seeing him for routine or serious concerns. My wifes Father, Sister and Mother all passed within a couple years and Dr Oppenheimer was completely engrossed in their health pass and present and did all he could to make their time left a comfortable and as pain free as possible. Again, we love Dr Oppenheimer and wish him all the best with his upcoming retirement. We will miss him terribly but understand him leaving.

Dr. Oppenheimer is one of the best doctors one could ever ask for. He is understanding, very thorough in all his actions and advice. When he retires in January I will really miss his positive care and advice, and being [age removed] it will be take a while to to get familiar with the new doctor, but I will> Legacy is a great provider of care.

Dr. Oppenheimer is a superb physician. He's dedicated, kind, knowledgeable, and respectful. He practices both the science and art of medicine as did his beloved (to me) predecessor Dr. David Perry. Since he will retire end of year, you MUST look for people of broad-ranging capacity (smart and humane) as himself and Dr. Perry. [details deleted to protect privacy]

I was disappointed to learn that the technician that took my blood pressure and checked my medication history did not pass on my concerns about my back and leg pain to Dr. Oppenheimer. Dr. Oppenheimer spent extra time examining me and recommended a course of treatment starting with physical therapy. I am very pleased with his kind attention to my needs and I am saddened that he is going to retire soon. I couldn't ask for a better primary care physician.

I just recently changed ins providers so I could see and go to other doctors more than legacy doctors. Dr. O is excellent but his hands are tied with your system. I have been to legacies cardiologist, obgyn, podiatrist, orthopedic hand surgeon, and NONE of these physicians have helped nor given sound advice. THAT IS WHY I CHANGED INS COMPANIES. No follow up with any of the issues I am having. Just enough for you to get paid by my insurance co.Not happy with legacy........

Dr. Oppenheimer in my opinion is just about the epitome of what a personal physician should be. He knows my conditions and history. He takes time to discuss medical matters with me clearly and patiently. I just learned that he will be planning retirement in the foreseeable future. I am selfishly sorry about that. I wish he could continue to be my doctor until I no longer need one.

when I went for my labs the paperwork was not available. I had checked with the nurse who checked with my doctor and said yes the lab had the orders. However, when I registered there was no paperwork and the lab couldn't reach anyone at my doctor's office to find out what was going on, it was a waste of everyone's time.
