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

I would like more personal interest in other health problem - not just the issue at the moment, as in my special diagnoses of my health problems.

I am [age removed] and Dr. Wu has been the first primary doctor that I have had that actually listens to me and spends time listening to me about my complaints and needs. She is the reason that I have kept up on my health because she doesn't judge, is compassionate and makes me feel comfortable. If it wasn't for her bedside manner, I probably wouldn't have kept up on my health. I recommend her all the time, she is special and I am grateful for her. She is amazing.

From my perspective, visits are always quick, efficient, on-target, and effective. I'm more satisfied with Legacy Health than any other health provider I've ever used (and I'm [age removed] old). Excellent service and support!!

It seems that Medicare patients are not examined as thoroughly as regular patients - but are given frequent blood tests to look for medical issues- Just glad this office - accepts Medicare patients.

This was my first visit to Dr. Wu. She had some of my medical records, but not all due to my needing to sign release from. I was extremely comfortable with her and look forward to having her as my primary care provider.

Does not seem interested in talking about my medical needs. Does not listen to me regarding prescribed medication. I have told her some meds do not work for me, but so far, she hasn't changed any to what I had.

I had my previous primary care doctor [timeline removed]. After her death last summer I had to find a doctor that would take medicare patients right away. This doctor is not as focused or seemingly knowledgeable as my last but she is fine for now.

My only complaint is when I need to be seen immediately they refer me to urgent care which has not been satisfactory. My prior doctor of over 20 yrs. - always worked me in or I was able to see someone else in the clinic.

I like Dr. Wu but I hate that on your summary sheet it's always printed out about my manic depression issues, yes I have depression but I don't think it's as bad as they make it sound and yes we discuss it but why do they have to plaster that info on the front page? Also have told her I don't want to do the colonoscopy but she just keeps saying every visit that I need to do it or now she wants me to do the home one, and I've heard the Drs. get money from the insurance company's for having the patients do the colonoscopy test. I know she's looking out for my health but it's still my choice and if I don't want to do it then she should just drop it.

In general, my experience checking in was very frustrating. I was treated like an adversary, and was aggressively pushed to refill out paperwork I already completed, blindly sign documents on the signature pad (even though I was given the option to get a printout copy), and pushed to have my photo taken (only to be told once I pressed that it's not required). I am sure these procedures were created with good intentions, but I do not appreciate some problematic patients problems being forced on me, when I already provided all of these details online, beforehand.

On several occasions the reception clerk was short - impatient, also leaving me on hold forgetting I was waiting. Maybe overworked. Also overheard disrespecting a patient in waiting room over insurance. Was wrong!

First, I called on [date removed] to ask for a test, and they were able to get me in on [date removed]. I was shocked but very pleased. Second, I was greeted nicely and had a wait of only about 8 minutes. Third, Vanessa, Dr. Wu's medical assistant, took very good care of me and was very open and friendly. She updated a lot of information to my online records in real time. Fourth, Dr. Wu came in almost immediately after Vanessa left. She's gregarious and fun and I enjoy my time with her. She quickly assessed my needs, and winked, saying "Since I'm taking your blood for the test, I'll take a teeny bit extra so I can take a look at some additional factors--iron levels, lipids, etc.", focusing on my health issues. I was pleased. She spent ample time with me, conducting a quick physical exam and conversing, and provided detailed follow-up notes. Fourth: Vanessa immediately came in and gave me my requested flu shot. Fifth: The lab, which conveniently is in the same office, quickly checked me in and took my blood and I was off and running. Very expert staff, well-run office, lab right there--it's just a great practice.

Dr. Wu LISTENS. The med nurse (RN) calls to confer on Rx's - my prior doctor - also with Legacy had an assistant who thought SHE was in charge - (!) so I quit hrs practice because of her.

I do struggle with the doctor sitting at computer as we talk - it seems very impersonal to me. I prefer us to look at one another as we talk. I love the personal touch and eye contact.

Dr. Wu and her medical assistant are the best people on the planet. I cannot speak highly enough of them and this office for how amazing they are. Everyone in the office is SO helpful and kind wether I am in person or calling with a question or to schedule an appointment. I have recommended this office to everyone I know and am beyond grateful to have found such an amazing doctor.

Receptionist at front desk was somewhat insensitive. Hit me with a barrage of forms to fill out, even asking for a picture. I mentioned to her I was ill with the flu/cold.The forms could have waited until my annual checkup. I felt uncomfortable, upset & it embarrassed me in front of patients in the waiting room.

This was the first time I have seen Dr. Wu. I came in to see if she was willing to be my primary care provider. She was very respectful and personable and agreed to be my PCP. I brought my records in so she did not know anything about me before this meeting.

During an emergency, if Dr Wu is not available, I would much rather be seen by someone in your office instead of being referred to urgent care.

This was my first visit to Dr. Wu & the Lake Oswego Legacy medical office. I needed to find a new Dr. and 2 friends recommended the Legacy office. I was so pleased with my visit to Dr. Wu and will be returning for a check-up in 4 weeks. Dr. Wu is very personable, listens carefully & takes time to explain. The office staff was also very friendly and helpful - and the location is quite close to my home and my pharmacy which is another plus for me!
