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 Farrell was (as always) aware of my other recent health details (visit to endocrinologist, family issues)-I feel entirely comfortable speaking with her and know she will always follow up on questions.)

I was told to come in 10 minutes early for my appointment and ended up waiting 90 minutes to get into an exam room. Initially I gave my cell phone to call me but returned to the waiting room and told the front desk person I had returned so they do not need to call my cell phone. I got the call anyway. I was not as upset about the wait as I was that I got called on my phone and had been in the waiting area for over 20 minutes by that time. The positive experience once I got back into the exam room erased the negative of having to wait so long. Great medical assistant and Dr. Farrell is very thorough and a great communicator.

Dr. Farrell is wonderful. She is extremely busy & often there is a wait time to see her. Appointments need to be scheduled several months in advance. She sees patients 2 days per week.

I love having Dr. Farrell for my PCP. I could go to a couple of different Legacy clinics that are a lot closer but I wouldn't be able to see her.

My life has been very stressful of late (aging parent in hospice) and this has escalated my anxiety. Dr. Farrell was VERY patient, respectful and helpful in identifying some issues.

Doctor knowledgeable, professional but wait time was over an hour (Medicare requirements seem to be the reason on my long appt.).

This provider is always running behind, no matter how early I make my appointment. She is also booked out at least 3-5 months. This makes it very difficult to get in to see her for somewhat urgent health care reasons.

"DR. FARELL" ASKS TO SEE ME EVERY MONTH AT "HER REQUEST." i DO HAVE MANY MEDICAL CONDITIONS. THE ONLY PROBLEM IS THAT "DR. FARRELL WORKS MON. P.M.'S & FRI. ONLY IN THE OFFICE. THE BIG PROBLEM IS THE LONG TIME WAITING TO SEE HER. ... AT EACH VISIT. SHE RUNS BEHIND AN "HOUR" AND SOMETIMES LONGER. I KNOW THIS AFFECTS ALL OF HER PTS.

the wait times are awful. dr Farrell needs to work more than two half days a week. she's one of the best doctors I've seen. legacy needs to make a decision dr Farrell needs more clinic time. not MORE administrative time.

I have been seeing Dr. Farrell for maybe 15 years. She is often late, but I know it's because she is thorough and attentive to her patients. I really appreciate her care and her thorough knowledge of my history. She often communicates by email and I appreciate that as I know it takes extra time but means she's following up on my care. Can't thank her enough.

The dr. is very busy and I wish we had a shorter wait time. I like going to her for her knowledge of me and my spouse.

Dr. Farrell has been my PCP for over 10 years. She took care of my mom before that. We have a long family history of complex medical problems. Dr. Farrell remembers my mom's medical hx even though she passed away 14 years ago. She spends as much time with you as you need. She listens to you let's you take an active role in your health care. She truly cares about her patients all around health.
