I feel the doctor is attentive when with me. She takes the time that is needed. I experience there is enough time to take care of all the medical questions p came in with.

Always easy to talk to, she listens!

Not my usual physician, but took time to familiarize herself with my situation before coming into the room. Carefully listened. I appreciated the time Dr. Wood took with me.

Dr. Wood is clear with information and focused on the patient in front of her. She looks up information as needed to provide context. I don't think I have ever had a doctor that clearly was very alert to labs and symptoms I had that were concerning to her and I felt 'cared for' in the sense she was very interested in my safety and health during a crisis. She is equally attentive and efficient in regular checkups. Probably the best care and respect I have ever received from a doctor in my life.

This was my initial meeting with Dr Wood and first time being a Legacy Medical Group patient.

  Oct 30, 2023
It always feels good to me when meeting with Dr. Wood because she listens and we collaborate over my care where I am an active participant with my care plan like exercise, diet and medication management.

  Sep 25, 2023
It was a pleasure meeting Dr. Wood. I feel she will support me in my efforts to stay healthy.

When waiting in exam room annoyingly loud talk radio was going on in room next door (maybe a break room?)

  Sep 5, 2023
Referrals often required more time than I would have liked. Questions about medications and dosages were difficult to get answers to.

Very pleased with doctor wood and her staff

  Aug 22, 2023

  Aug 21, 2023
Dr Wood was a very good listener and provided me with the answers and direction I needed.

  Aug 18, 2023
Dr. Wood is an exceptional listener. She listens to me empathetically and then discusses relevant solutions while at the same time advising on how insurance coverage and wait times might be for any follow up care with a specialist. She's a GREAT partner in my wellbeing!!

  Aug 15, 2023
Dr. Wood is clearly an extremely intelligent person with high social skills. It was a pleasant experience, which makes me grateful I was able to connect with her as my primary health doctor.

  Aug 14, 2023
Dr. Wood is fantastic. My family and I are very pleased with this clinic.

Dr wood is always helpful and a good listener

  Jul 26, 2023
Wonderful people, very busy so was running a bit late today, which is unusual. I really like my medical team at legacy.

  Jul 25, 2023
Everything was good and exceeded my expectations

  Jul 24, 2023
I have not been contacted for imaging needed and it has been over a week. Doc said it would be in a couple of days

  Jul 21, 2023
Dr Wood is a wonderful Doctor I wish she could be my primary one now that my Dr. Is leaving the clinic

  Jul 21, 2023
This was my first visit. I've recently moved from another state.

  Jul 19, 2023
A great team from the check-in desk to the medical assistant to Dr. Wood. It was a positive experience. I felt very well cared for and with professional hands.

  Jul 18, 2023
Dr. Wood was very thorough and thoughtful. I really appreciate that she did not make me feel rushed and she not only listened but asked delving follow thru questions to make sure she got all the information.

  Jul 11, 2023
The only problem was that the ENT referral was made to the wrong provider--a Legacy ENT doctor rather than the ENT I have seen for many years.

  Jun 30, 2023
All was good. One question is a lipid panel was ordered but no one told me if I needed to fast. The lab asked about fasting. I did not, but they took blood anyway. It is always a struggle to find a vein, so blood tests are not fun. My lllipid panel came back elevated. I'm wondering if the test is accurate due to not fasting. Needed more clear communication prior to going to the lab.

  Jun 30, 2023
Once you make contact with the provider, experience is very good. The problem is getting through. I found legacy has a very poor record of being able to reach your providers by phone and they Myhealth message. System is severely lacking.

  Jun 21, 2023
Dr. Wood and her staff have always treated me professionally, thoughtfully, compassionately, and respectfully. Dr. Wood is a gifted physician who listens attentively and explains obtuse medical details in a way I can understand.

  Jun 12, 2023
VERY LONG wait on phone when calling (> 10 minutes).

  Jun 6, 2023
Dr. Wood is great and I will keep seeing her. I am not a fan of the nurse practitioner I saw on a previous visit as she was very unsure and then told me to do something different than what the doctor she brought in for advice recommended. It takes forever for someone to answer the phone when trying to make an appointment or to return a call and it is very hard to get an appointment that is not weeks or months out. I was able to get the appt. With Dr. Wood as she had a cancellation.

  Jun 5, 2023
I am very happy with all aspects of my experiences when ever 1 visit or need help. Dr. Wood and staff are great.

  Jun 5, 2023
I did have to wait a considerable time to get in as a new patient, over 3 months.

  May 31, 2023
I wish I could have Dr. Wood as my PCP she is wonderful.

  May 31, 2023
Dr wood is a great professional

  May 30, 2023
The practice appears to be going through a significant transition, and appointment times are distant.

  May 23, 2023
Dr. Wood is personable, compassionate and gives practical options. I appreciate that and listens to me.

  May 22, 2023
Everything was super!

  May 15, 2023
I think Dr. Wood is great. I don't think Legacy is any more. I have received services from Legacy since 1997 but I think I will go elsewhere. Systems and processes are so broken and the facilities are dirty.

  May 12, 2023
The negative was - such trouble trying to establish a new primary care dr. - original moved out of state. The next established care notified me they also were leaving upon my first visit. St. Helen's office had availability but would not accept a patient from Mult. County. Dr. Wood took me (my husband's dr.) when he explained my frustration.

  May 12, 2023
The staff at the clinic are friendly and competent. Dr. Kenna Wood is wonderful. She is competent, caring and knowledgeable, one of the best doctors I have ever had.

  May 10, 2023
Dr. Wood was excellent. Spent lots of time with me and covered all that needed to be.

  May 1, 2023
Dr Kenna Wood was great ! She listened well, answered all my questions, took the time to explain things, and gave very helpful suggestions, She was friendly, professional, knowledgeable, and not at all patronizing or condescending. In short, she was wonderful !

  May 1, 2023
Dr. Wood is an exceptional Dr. Grateful to have her as I have had very bad experiences with Drs in the past

  Apr 26, 2023
Excellent care. Dr Wood has really helped me to control my diabetes 2. Much more than any other doctor

  Apr 25, 2023
Difficult coordinating reorder of meds

  Apr 18, 2023
Give everyone a raise and full benefits.

Dr. Wood is professional and friendly doctor who treats me with respect.

  Apr 11, 2023
Well I was coming in for a wellness check with my Antidepressants. No more refills because its been a year. It was a short app. And I had other concerns and Dr .Wood covered all amazingly accuratel and fast. Wow I am impressed. I had even told her as soon as I she came in that I knew it was a short appointment and had other concerns and didn't expect to cover all and rather I would make another appointment.

  Apr 4, 2023
Nurse/assistant did not give me all the information that I asked for!!!

  Mar 27, 2023
I felt the Doctor listened to my concerns and has put into motion a game plan to help me with these.

  Mar 17, 2023
My wait time for a 10:15 appointment was 30-40 minutes short on staff & too many things to accomplish in the given time allotment for the personnel - too few personnel -

  Mar 15, 2023
Dr. Wood is professional and personable. She has great nursing support.

  Mar 15, 2023
Dr Wood is an excellent provider

  Mar 8, 2023
After a bone density test, the only contact from the doctor was the same form letter received twice (2 days apart), advising starting a supplement (Vit. D) & change in diet - with, NO DISCUSSION on what I'm already doing now! This doesn't seem entirely responsible.

  Mar 7, 2023
She listens.

  Mar 7, 2023
Always friendly and informative.
