Patient Rating

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. Tidwell was friendly and thorough. He explained several options to treat my condition and accepted my decision for the simplest procedure and did not try to "sell" me on the more complex and presumably more expensive option. I appreciate that!

Dr. Tidwell is very knowledgeable regarding problems with feet. I have complete confidence in him and have seen him several times over the years. He has always recommended other alternatives before resorting to surgery. I appreciate that in a physician, having seen a podiatrist before who rushed to surgery.

Not only would I recommend Dr Tidwell, I have, many times. Not just one of the best foot and ankle doctors, he is one of my favorite doctor's, the other favorite also being in the Legacy system. It is always a pleasure to see Dr Tidwell and his staff.

Dr. Tidwell has seen me for about 3 months. he is a great communicator, with a gentle demeanor and style. He gave me a number of treatment options, all of which helped. Yesterday we decided to be a bit more aggressive, and I am glad we did so. I will see him for follow up in a month.

this is my first time seeing Dr. Tidwell after a referral from a family member. The front desk staff were amazingly nice and I was seen right away. The MA who brought me to the room and help Take vitals was also amazing and provide me with exactly what to expect. Dr. Tidwell arrived as soon as the MA left the room and took ample time explaining the cause of my issue and a treatment plan. I was very impressed and I'm only regretful that I didn't book an appointment sooner. Excellent clinic staff and provider

The visit was very useful, and the doctor and staff were informed and responsive. It took more than a month from the onset of an acute injury to get a referral from primary care and an appointment with the specialist -- and that involved travelling across town (it would have been an additional two week to see the specialist at the usual location).

this was a follow up visit from last year. I was not sure if the doctor knew me however. It was the same issue that I felt and believed had not been taken care of the first time I saw doctor. I told him this and he appeared to take measures to completely remove the callus this time. Only time will tell if he did a better job than last time.

I felt as if the doctor had a clear understanding of my foot pain. The difficulty I had was the fact that each time he explained something to me he closed his eyes. This was very disconcerting and reduced my confidence. I recognize that people have a wide array of tics, quirks and compensations. But, it seems to me that if a provider of medical care is not going to make eye contact there should be some warning of a previously invisible different ability.
