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. Engstad was great! Going in I was very apprehensive about C.A.B.G. surgery. But the doctor was very thorough in his explanation of the procedure including the risks and expected outcomes. I especially appreciate that he would look me in the eye while chatting.

Dr. FEin had him do surgical consultation after we went over my PET scan they both agreed on my future treatment. Both were very good with me. Glad they were so positive.
