I do not discuss my health issues with other family members or friends. I don't really think it is necessary to reveal my personal information, race issues and other personal information and based upon my years of being a patient with Legacy.

I have been dissatisfied in my attempts to find a new doctor that felt right for me. Dr. Amavisca feels right. I like his style and philosophy toward care. Coincidently, my son, who just moved back to the area, found and made an introductory appointment with Dr. Amavisca. After completing my appointment, I immediately called my son with my positive review.

Trying to get lab results via phone is arduous and frustrating. Lately I have had to wait far too long for results. Results are never left in a phone message or email despite my written permission to do so. Dr. Amavisca is absolutely outstanding but admin staff is obviously affected by the pandemic. Improvement in returning phone calls and notifying patients of their lab results is in dire need of improvement.

I've been a patient with Legacy for about 30 years. Dr. A is only my 3rd Physician during that time. So, needless to say I was a little apprehensive when I was told I would get a new GP. I couldn't be more pleased. Dr. A is a clear and concise communicator. He is detailed and thorough. He listens to my inputs and responds accordingly. He has my complete confidence.

Provider came into the room and began to lecture about the problems a certain medication can cause. He did not really ask me about a major concern I might have for that day. He suggested I might wish to find another provider since he did not like prescribing Diazepam.I could only guess where he got his preconceived Ideas before entering the room. My guess Is from the previous provider who left Legacy Meridian last year. I had to wait 8 months for this first meeting with Joseph Amavisca. Was it worth the wait?No.
