I recently moved to [location removed]. Finding a new Cardiologist was important and I feel I made a good choice in Dr. Rhoads. He took the time to get to know me and I feel very comfortable with him.

I really do not care for waiting at the office a long time for my appointment. The first thing the doctor always does is apologize. Just not comfortable, but one day I may be the one who needs more time. I do ever want to feel the doctor hurried with me because he took a long time with another patient. I came close to feeling that way at the last appointment.

Dr. Rhoads was very attentive and I was surprised by how much time he spent explaining my test results, my condition, and the reasons for additional tests. He asked if I had any questions-I did not, but on reflection, I will have some ready for my next visit.

Dr. Rhoads is a VERY thorough guy - I feel extremely well advised/cared for trying to identify an elusive condition by him and all providers I have worked with at Legacy. I cannot imagine better medical care.

Dr. Rhoads is my cardiologist, so my visits primarily deal with heart issues, so he asks my about alt usage, blood pressure & exercise.

I have many years of experience in a large hospital working directly with hundreds of physicians and health care providers of all kinds. Dr. Rhoads is knowledgeable, compassionate and is an excellent communicator. [removed for patient privacy] I have the highest regard for him. I consider myself extremely fortunate to be his patient.

Service in this office has improved much. There was a time (2 yrs. ago) that if it had not been because I love the care I receive from Dr. Rhoads, I would have looked for a different provider. The telephone connections with this office & legacy have greatly improved.

Dr. Rhoads has always been a very kind, patient & professional doctor. He is a good listener and I never feel rushed. He is compassionate. He has taken the time in the past to personally call & check on me. I am NOT looking forward to the day he lets me know he is retiring....but I will wish him well & continue to pray my gratitude for this man.

It was a little bit of wait, but that was made up by the complete attention and time given to me by Dr. Rhoads. The only real negative besides the wait time for the doctor, was waiting for someone to come and check me out. It seems that I was forgotten about.

Very thorough with explaining my heart condition and what we should do next. Late for appointment, but understandable. He takes extra time to ensure you understand my condition and a treatment plan

This was the first time I saw Dr. Rhoads. I was referred to him by my primary care physician for follow-up to my ER visit for a heart condition. The appt. lasted 45-50 minutes and Dr. Rhoads was very thorough and explained treatment options & follow-up.

I waited well over 1 hour to be "called" to exam room - waited more time in there - that visit was my first visit. I self referred after several months with no help from PCP at Tillamook, or Children recommended I asked for Dr. Rhoads after my cardiologist retired.

Provider was very thorough, thoughtful and treated the visit as it was important. Only major complaint is very long wait times. I ended up meeting with the provider for about 20-25 minutes and was there for an an hour and a half. Some of this was spent doing other tests, but a good 40 minutes was spent simply waiting.

Dr. Rhoads is always kind, patient, professional yet welcoming and understanding. He listens well and gives good feedback and makes me feel that he is open to discussion. I do not look forward to his retiring and having to start over with another cardiologist. I am a former nurse and have worked with doctors in office settings. There is no doubt, Dr. Rhoads is exceptional and I am grateful to be one of his patients.

He listens and lets me ask questions and explains everything in detail so I can understand. He is not just a doctor! He is a man sent from God who is fulfilling God's plan for his life by loving people so much who shares his information and works with them to find a plan to make them well.

Dr. Rhoads was very helpful and the office staff was pleasant, but I thought the wait times were excessive for a pandemic situation. Lab was understaffed and took way too long, although the single tech was doing her best, i have not seen copies of any of the recent lab i have had done
