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

She is an excellent physician. When she discovered she was unable to prescribe the medicine she felt I might take for my condition, she immediately investigated the reasons why this was so and then informed me as to what the reasons were. She told me the medicine's name she was asking the pharmacist to provide. I HAVE recommended her to others.

I like her but her opening words to me were "I don't think I can help you."

Dr. Wesenberg is extremely skilled. She thought "outside the box" and continued digging deep to find all causes of my lung and health issues. She cares deeply -

Undoubtably, the best Doctor I have ever had in my [age removed] years. A perfect model of what a doctor should be. I feel blessed to have her as my Pulmanologist.

I have seen Dr. Wesenberg three times over the last two years. Each time she has been extremely helpful in explaining concerns about my condition, diagnostic procedures that she has recommended. Although unrelated to her care, I have have had an angioplasty and a pacemaker installed during that time. It is difficult to explain in a limited space, but all of these conditions appear to be or at least may be related. I would recommend her to anyone requiring expertise in her clinical field. She is great.

I have now had two extremely favorable experiences with Legacy Meridian. I had a full right hip replacement followed by Acute respiratory failure due to an autoimmune diagnosis and spent days in hospital. EVERYONE I have come into contact with has been exceptional whether it be at the , lab, or Dr office:-)

Dr. Wesenberg's Lara was very thorough with follow up and seemed genuinely interested in my recovery. She is a great nurse to help with the care of an excellent physician. . Dr. Wesenberg seemed extremely concerned and made me feel very comfortable in the help she could provide.

The Dr explained the tests performed prior to this visit, and compared them to previous tests. She is treating me for a long-standing problem and is trying to measure effectiveness of the treatment. very good experience. BTW this provider is a specialist, not PCP. some survey questions are actually not applicable. for ex...future appt is made the day of each visit, i do not call for an appt.
