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

Once the MA leaves the room and I'm in my gown, I would like Leslie to knock before entering asking if it is good to come in. She just enters and I'm not sure if it's her or someone else. being in a gown I feel vulnerable and a knock asking "hi [name] it's dr. Johnson may I come in?" assures me it's the doctor and that I am covered before someone enters.

Dr Johnson is a very fine doctor. She tells you the truth and how things are and what you need to do to fix them. She doesn't give you a bunch of BS. I trust her completely and I appreciate her straight forward no nonsense approach to care.

Dr. Johnson seems genuinely interested in me and does not hurry through the appointment. She does not talk down to me but does expand on a topic if necessary.

I didn't feel listened to, I didn't feel that for an introductory visit the provider spent enough time to really get to know me, listen to my concerns and to integrate the information in my chart with the patient sitting in front of her. I felt like I was 'processed' and sent on for additional care that I can't afford. Consequently I am not seeing this provider an longer and would not see another Legacy provider after this experience.

I had never seen her before and she didn't even introduce herself when she walked into the room. She seemed rather disinterested.

I have been a patient in this clinic for about [years removed] and worked at the hospital for [years removed]. Every time I speak to someone at the desk (especially since Joey retired & when he was not present) I am 'treated' somewhat like a new patient. There is often zero recognition. I appreciate the volume, but I am fairly positive the computer system has something that recognizes names. How about "Hi [name] - nice to see you" - "Hi [name] - how are you doing?" ...something must be available. [detail removed to protect privacy]. I realize you put a lot of patient's through in a short period of time, but something to personalize the experience. Even looking up from the computer during the intake process, could help. Some are better than others, but almost every time I am there, I have the same feeling. A plus - they do process a lot of patients in a short period of time!

I moved to [location removed] several years ago, found a local physician however I was extremely disappointed with their services. I researched my provider list and found Dr. Johnson, her rating was high, as a result I selected her, she is nothing less than excellent

I think Dr Leslie Johnson is the best primary care doctor I have ever had. She always prepared and knows the facts before entering the exam room. easy to communicate with. She's the best.

I shared with Dr Johnson that I am now in a long-term recovery program for alcoholism and marijuana use. Her response was very neutral. This is a big step for me, and I was hoping to have her a response with more support and encouragement. But I didn't get that.

everything felt streamlined and everyone did their job. reception got me check in quickly. CNA got my vitals. and the bulk of the appointment was actually spent with Doctor. I was pretty impressed with the clinic and staff. So much better care and support than I've received elsewhere. couldn't believe the doctor reached out with test results the next morning. very impressed with legacy so far.

provider came off as very judgemental of the care I was requesting (e.g. rolled here eyes & huffed). she did not have good bedside manner & seemed very unsympathetic. I've honestly never been treated like this before by any provider. disappointed b/c i had heard great things

Dr Johnson is engaging, asks questions, and offers options for addressing health issues. She was the first primary care physician in a decade who asked me if i would like physical therapy for my back issues, would i like an evaluation from a physologist; and would I like to re-evaluate my overall medications for need or appropriateness. These questions and actions made a significant difference in my well-being and I'm deeply appreciative for her inquisitiveness and thoughtfulness in making health improvements for me.

the reception area is incredibly loud. everyone is yelling at patients and people on the phone so that they can hear over everyone else. patients can overhear these conversations since they are so loud. it's not a very good set up

Dr. Johnson sent her report in PDF form and I couldn't open it and then it completely disappeared from my My Health report site. This has never happened before!So I have no record of this visit!!!!! Probably a technical glitch, not Dr. Johnson's fault. Pease fix this!

it was an urgent visit and Dr. Johnson was direct, informative, and sensitive to the issue. the triage nurse I spoke to the day before who scheduled the appointment was also very thorough, direct, and got me scheduled quickly and easily for a visit.

I was 'called in' (her words; not mine) to alert me that I needed to start cutting back on Ambien, a medication she has prescribed to me for years now as Medicare will not pay for it in [age details removed]. What was that about? Why couldn't this have occurred on the phone? I presented a long list of documented chronic concerns that she would not discuss with me. Absolutely no concern about my tripping, falling, and bad balance issues. No concern or FOLLOW THROUGH to see that I was getting the correct physician to provide proper care. My documented medical history should require a orthopedics physician and a neurologist to review my health annually. Previous referrals go nowhere and I am just stumped at the level of inadequate health care I receive with relatively no other options at this point. This doctor is fine to ready my blood test results and notify me if there is a change in the tests. That's about all she does.

This practice is very busy. I realized that my pre-diabetes has been omitted from my medical record and my a1c has not been checked so I need to return or contact them. It's difficult changing doctors. It will take time to get used to Dr Johnson.

This was my second first visit with a new provider in a year, so I'm very pleased with the amount of information discussed, including medical history, and the depth of analysis during a first visit. I'm looking forward to continuing with Dr. Johnson

I completed both e-checkin and the patient survey questions ahead of my appointment. wondered why front desk still asked me to confirm my demographics and why depression screening questions weren't included in the online survey so everything is completed before I arrive?

It's a long story but I was a patient of Dr. Johnsons's several years ago and due to an insurance change at work had to change providers. I bounced around from doctoe to doctor never really finding one I liked.10 months ago I moved to {location removed to protect privacy}. my new employer uses Legacy Insurance. I drove 5 hours to become a patient of Dr. Johnson's again. I trust her and her quality of care is amazing.Thank you Dr. Johnson.

dr Johnson clearly had studied my records, asked me a number of questions and made several recommendations that I thought had great merit. I felt that she was invested in my health, and solving issues in new ways that made sense to me.
