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

Everyone was extremely helpful and I thank God for all of them. This was a surgeon out of my network, and a 4 month battle for me to get Providence (my insurance) to approve my referral to the only surgeon that was qualified to do my surgery. Any time I called with a question they answered me right away. I am very pleased with my surgery and I'm sure all my follow-up will be just as great as it has been.
