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. Budesa is professional - she asks questions se listens, I feel "unrushed", during our discussions and leave feeling better than when I got there.

I have confidence in Dr Budesa and trust her expertise - grateful for the surgical referral she directed me to for ortho needs, too. I was fortunate to find Dr Budesa upon moving to this town 5 years ago. I trust in her abilities & am thankful for her continuity of care!

This doctor seems to be in demand as many times I cannot get an appointment with her except maybe month or more away so I have gone to other doctor at the clinic.

My complaint has to do with the rushed feeling because providers are only allowed to spend 20 mins. with you. I have multiple issues that are mostly intertwined together it would be nice if care was based on what the patient needs & not what the insurance will pay. Please note: this has nothing to do with Dr. Budesa - she is great!

Dr. Budesa's CMA on the phone for me right away. He told me since I'd had a cough for a week I should come in soon to be checked by Dr. Budesa. He set up an appointment for me that day and they worked me in. I had little time to wait. Jason and Dr. Budesa took good care of me and I felt confident I would be better soon.

I love everyone's timeliness, but at the same time the medical team is able to be friendly with me and make time for me as well, especially after having gone through a surgery not too long ago. Thank you so much!

I appreciate them remembering me as more than just a number. They listen to me very well. I might have to leave next year as I might have to switch to MODA Beacon and this office does not take Beacon. . . . . .can this be changed to where Beacon is included in their accepted plans?

Dr. Budesa reviewed my history, made suggestions, ordered an x-ray and reviewed the results with me, and ordered 2 new prescriptions. She answered all of my questions and concerns and is very knowledgeable and competent. I recommend her to anybody.

Dr. Budesa is always wonderful to see. She is very knowledgeable and explains things in an easy to understand way. She is always very nice and attentive to my needs. I appreciate the time she spends with me and I never feel rushed. She treats me like a person, not just another patient.

I requested to have blood work done so that the results were available for discussion during my appointment. this gave me an opportunity for Dr Budesa to answer my questions and concerns versus having a long stream of emails. The lab results are sent with a "normal" range. If there are results that are outside the range, there is NEVER any EXPLAINATION. This really frustrates me. For example, my Glucose level was three points outside the "normal range". Dr Budesa explained that the normal range used is the one for diabetes and heart patients. Which neither disease is in my health history.
