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. Dempster is excellent. She never seems rushed. She always listens, pays attention and gives me honest, clear answers and advice. She respects my choices as well as makes suggestions and recommendations that are in my best interests. I feel really grateful to be part of the Legacy system.

Dr. Dempster is the only doctor that consistently makes me feel like I'm not just another appointment to get through before dealing with the next patient. I always leave smiling and confident that she's addressed my issues.

I have recommended Dr. Dempster to family, and they are also well pleased. I feel Dr. Dempster uses her training along with the latest cutting edge information and techniques to give me the best possible health care.

I needed to establish with a new PCP and had been putting it off because I didn't think I could find one that I liked as well as my former PCP whom I had an extensive history with. Dr Dempster exceeded my expectations and I am so happy that I found her. The receptionist at check-in was not as professional as I prefer. There was a plate of food out in the open next to her. She also did not have the knowledge to explain the clinic conditions of registration to me upon signing. The cleanliness and organization of the clinic needs serious help. the waiting room has a large stain on the carpet as soon as you walk in. There are also hundreds of magazines scattered everywhere. The exam room was also a bit scary looking to me. The biohazard bin lid was off and appeared damaged. The garbage area next to the biohazard bin was filthy on the outside. There was medical equipment with wheels that appeared broken under the counter. The walls were dingy and it felt unclean in general.

Dr. Dempster was very attentive to my questions and thoughtful with her responses. As this was my first visit with her to establish primary care, she was very thorough in her review of my history. I feel very confident in having her as my provider.

I don't feel Dr. Dempster listened to the negative effects I was having with medications. I also don't feel she knew my medical history when I would message her about symptoms I was having [detail removed to protect privacy].

I'm so happy that Dr. Dempster listens to me with empathy and is helping me to get better. I was afraid nobody would help me.

I could not be happier with the wonderful care Dr Katherine Dempster has given me for many years now. Dr Dempster has skillfully seen me through bladder cancer, a rare skin disease, a stroke and many other health care issues. I highly recommend Dr Katherine Dempster for any and all health care needs.

I arrived to my appointment before the office doors were unlocked and the office staff had arrived. (I was one of the first.) I had to wait a few minutes in the hallway for the office to be unlocked and for the day to start. Perhaps, for first-of-the-day appointments, you do not recommend they show up before the office opens.
