Leslie was a thoughtful and skilled provider. She spent over an hour reviewing my history and discussed subsequent tests to garner a baseline health assessment In a few key areas. I have just began new care with Legacy ( after 10 years with Kaiser ) and was impressed and grateful. Leslie Root is an asset to the Legacy system.

Dr Root has been my doctor for over 25 years. This was a Routine A1C visit with extra bloodwork for Cholesterol check. In addition, I received my annual Flu Shot and instructions for obtaining Shingles vaccination as well as the latest Covid Booster. Received a prompt call the following day with results of Cholesterol. Excellent service all around as always!

Let me sum up by saying I am grateful Legacy is now letting care done at the "patient's request." I think it would be wonderful now if they would not give out so many prescriptions fixing their side effect with another one & that insurance/pharmaceuticals had less restriction in a patient's care. I respect the medical profession but think somehow things have not gone in the right direction over the years. My heart goes out to staff in the pandemic.

Even though I waited more than 15 minutes for my appt, I was informed that there was an unexpected hold-up, and that the MD would be with me as soon as possible, which I believe she was.The reason my prescription med was not discussed in the last 3 months is because there was no need for me to contact the health care team in the last 3 months.

Dr Root was extremely attentive and very compassionate. She knew my symptoms and she knew what I had and explained in detail how to take care of myself when I got home. It was viral so there was no prescription to be given. She printed everything out and explained it to me one by one. I felt very at ease with her.

Dr. Root has been my doctor for the past 10 years. I couldn't be more pleased and grateful for her knowledge, expertise and kindness. She is meticulous, thorough and very patient.

Dr. Root addressed all my concerns, came up with a plan and arranged for follow-up. I left feeling better and, as ever, delighted that she Is in charge of my medical care.
