Lab staff hard to understand
Dr. Lowdermilk has good bedside manner.She explains things in a layman's language.
My doctor listens to me and we discuss exactly what we want to accomplish at the appointment
Dr. Lowdermilk is awesome. She takes time to listen to my concerns and helps me navigate my health and well-being issues.
A very professional visit all questions answered at the time good good relationship with Dr Lowdermilk
Love the staff and Dr. Lowdermilk. Attentive, patient and have a warm personality. She is in tune with my issues
Although I've seen Dr Lowdermilk 2 times she is makes you feel very comfortable asking question. I've already recommended her to 2 people I know.
Everything went well with my appointment.
Annual checkup Fun visit, focused on good health..Dr Lowdermilk asked me to have blood draw to check for cholesterol level, kidneys etc.
I like my doc.
Dr Loudermilk is very through and anxious to help! I felt that she took the necessary time and was very professional!
My first visit with her. She was respectful, concerned with questions asked and helpful.
Dr Lowdermilk is a very good doctor, she cares about her patients and how they are doing.
Dr. Lowdermilk is a REAL DR.! I feel she is very up to date in her medical knowledge. Very easy to talk to. A KEEPER.
She was VERY patient and answered MOST of my questions, but there were questions noted by the nurse that I simply forgot about until after the appointment. No big deal, just noted.
Only problem I had is it takes so long to get an appointment. My visit was cancelled and rescheduled two times in the interim I got another doctor to answer my questions.
Hard to schedule a visit.
This was a first visit with Dr. Lowdermilk since my former primary physician retired in July. She was very professional, but very attentive and concerned about addressing any issues I had with my health. I really liked her and am so pleased that she is my new primary physician.
It was all good like I said she is very helpful, informative, and moral boosting due to diabetes I needed it.
I am concern about your staffing levels and patient/doctor ratio...
This was my FIRST visit with Dr. Lowdermilk so I can NOT really give a perfect description of her service to me. Maybe 2 or more visits, I will be more precise in my comments about her. Thank you!
Dr Lowdermilk and Maggie and everyone were fantastic.
Waited 10 mins in the reception area, then another 10 mins waiting for the doctor then another 10 mins or so for my blood draw. All seemed a little excessive.
I had hearing issue, they removed some hardened ear wax during the visit. Which took some extra time.
I always have a good visit with Dr. Lowdermilk. She answers my questions in an easy to understand manner. I'm very lucky to have her as my doctor.
She was very compassionate, listened to my concerns, made recommendations, and had a Behavioral Specialist speak to me.
All good, no bad.
Thank you for getting me an app't within a day for an infection that an antibiotic was needed.
She was very attentive and was able to answer my questions.
We had a good talk abut the problems I had and what would be the best way to care for them. I had a positive feedback from her and felt good about our meeting . My BP 155/97 is of concern and being monitored my next app is in 3 weeks.
Care always the best.
My poor experiences with this are related to, inability to access medical advise. Waiting days for a response. MA being confused and not passing on messages. Low staffing, I know due to covid but it has a negative impact on care.
Dr Lowdermilk is the best Doctor I've ever had. Very knowledgeable and caring, plus a wonderful personality
I felt comfortable, relaxed. Never rushed. Provider wanted to hear all that's been going on in my life. Had very helpful suggestions concerning pain management and pain relieving gels for my knee. Suggested physical therapy which I declined. Ordered an X-ray and possible MRI.
For a first visit with a new doctor, I was very pleased with the time she spent with me. My doctor retired and it was a long wait to get an appointment with a new doctor but luckily I had no health issues during the 3 month wait.
Other than a little bit longer wait to go in to start my appointment everyone was kind and understanding when asking how much longer and then once I was in and started the visit it just wiped it all away because this doctor is so kind very good at listening and understanding I just can't say enough about how awesome she is!
When I read the report from my blood work, I was surprised to learn that this doctor only sees patients two days a week. We are new patients for her, but this seems extreme.
RC cell ent in every way
Mary was very knowledgeable about my medical history and l was actually very impressed how interested she was me and my mental and basic health. It was fun.
Took time to listen; very approachable & responsive.
Dr. Lowdermilk and team are both professional, knowledgeable and proficient in the discussions and diagnoses
Dr. Lowdermilk seems like a good physician but looks like she has to many patients and is dealing with her own health issues at the moment. I need an internist, but your clinic only give me one choice for one and he was male. i want a female internist.
I feel very confident having Dr Lowdermilk as my medical doctor. She is amazing
Nice first meeting
The appt. went well.
Dr.Lowdermilk is an excellent listener. She instills confidence and gives comfort in her warm caring manner .
Dr Lowdermilk is very easy to talk to and she is very friendly.
I know that doctors are overloaded right now, and I really appreciate the time Dr. Lowdermilk took to go over my health concerns and followed up with me when my test results came back. I also like that she has me schedule my next appointment when I leave so I know exactly when I'm going back and what we'll go over in the next appointment.
Dr. Lowdermilk is one of the best doctors I have ever been associated with. She Is positive, prepared, professional, knowledgeable, Informative, caring, and supportive! She Is everything you could ask for and ecxpect from a high quality doctor.
Horrible time with lab-draw! Scarry, in fact!
I really like this doctor
It was great!
Dr. Lowdermilk didn't seem willing to take initiative to address my medical issues. When I identified I was still experiencing significant pain or discomfort in lower abdomen after sepsis and ruptured gall bladder, she didn't say or di anything. When I said my bones hurt, she did nothing. When I said I was gaining weight again but my insurance denied any nutritional help, she couldn't even provide some basic calorie and or min nutritional guidelines She sort of offered 1 weight loss medication but made it sound so terrible and expensive, I just said forget it. I just walked out of the office completely determined to find a new PCP and clinic as svcs have been terrible.
No bad experiences, Dr. Lowdermilk is a very caring doctor, she doesn't give up until she solves any issues.
She always seems to care sincerely about me and give answers to questions.
From the second I walked in the door everyone was so nice,kind and helpful. My Doctor is my hero..I trust my life in her hands..look forward to working with her on my health issue....I believe she will fix me
Answered all my questions
It was a good experience. Dr. Lowdermilk answered all my questions.
Dr. Lowdermilk was very professional. Listened to my concerns. Went over my medications andSaid it was definitely possible to increase one of my prescriptions and said to set up a 3 month follow up. Discussed procedures I needed to update.
Positive appointment. Dr. Lowdermilk was knowledgeable and helpful and courteous.
Very good medical team.
Every time she contacted the pharmacy about my meds, the pharmacy would immediately call & say I have 6 prescriptions ready for pick up. I told her twice not to call them, but..... very little time spent!!
She was very thorough, asked questions, listened to me.
Modivated to loose weight
I am extremely happy with my provider and I feel good about her care for me. She takes extreme care in what my needs are for my physical and mental health issues. My overall experience with Legacy Health since I switched from other heath groups I feel Legacy has been the best care and choice for me. With out Legacy Health I believe I would not be getting the proper care that I need today. Especially when living as a senior and on disability SSI. Legacy has helped me with need of food and also with mental health issues. Legacy shows nothing but compassion and kindness and with professionalism that to me shows how much Legacy Health really cares even the Hospital and Special dr's and Surgeons in my past history has the best care ever. I will never go back to Providence or OHSU poor past experience with those were not for me. Thank You Legacy for not only saving my life. But for also saving my Partners life several years ago. He almost died you saved his life I am forever grateful for that.
Listens carefully to what you are telling her.
While Dr. Lowdermilk was great, the while experience for both my kids was terrible. We had recently switched to Dr. Lowdermilk as our new primary care physician, with the understanding that she was part of a children's clinic. This was incredibly confusing as we walked into the building and there was absolutely nothing to draw kids attention, help with wait time, nothing child oriented. We waited at least 15 minutes to be seen, as we went through the appointment it was clear that staff wasn't entirely ready. Certain materials took longer to find such as the audiology exam machine, it took a while to get the vaccines ready, and it seemed as if the eye exam was something new to the person helping us. All in all, from the time we started our appointment to the time we left was two hours! With nothing to help children to be comfortable, relaxed, feel safe in this environment. I have since learned that you guys are not part of the children's clinic, which is clear now, but very confusing. I would much prefer to be In a clinic that works directly with children and provides an environment of courtesy and friendliness and warmth to help the experience. Not to mention more timeliness. Again, Dr. Lowdermilk was great but the whole experience itself was not.
This was my initial visit to this provider and facility.
Have to wait way too long to get an appointment. Also, if an emergency to talk to doctor you have to leave message.
Very good I'm very satisfied with this provider except she is very busy.
Office called to offer me one of my Rx brought from Kaiser to a form covered by my new Humana insurance.
I am very happy with my Primary, Mary Lowdermilk. Best Dr Visit ever.
Dr. is very thorough, asks questions.
Her help was confusing and I left not understanding what was wrong with me. I felt like her explainations were not clear. She rambled and explained about a condition she had, that she was clear wasn't what I had. I have seen this doctor 3 times I would not refer anyone to her. She is extremely difficult to contact. I was told she doesn't do Zoom appointments and doesn't like using the health care message center. I left several messages for her in the message center and never received an answer. These are tools that are being wasted. At my last visit I asked her "how should I contact you?" call and leave a message......I am currently looking for a new Dr.
Good experience with provider
She actually listened and asked appropriate questions, she did not seem rushed and took time to explain things I had required about..she also volunteered to check on insurance coverage for what she discussed.my insurance was not accepted for one procedure with one place so her staff found me mother provider who did
I enjoyed my time with the doctor. She took the time to discuss all my questions and was friendly and logical. I was surprised how limited the physical checks were. I am used to a physical being a thorough exam. Maybe that has changed due to covid.
I have a very unique name. I always love it when the receptionist takes the time to write down how you pronounce my name so the MA can pronounce it correctly and so can the doctor. My name is important to me and this extra effort makes me feel welcomed in a space, especially one that I am anxious about. I would also include pronouns to be come inclusive
Very personable and professional, gave me pros and cons to my health care options I was coming in for, took care when I mentioned I would be without health insurance and made sure I was set up for success, took care when I mentioned previous discomfort with medicine suggested to me in the past, good listener, funny, honest, lovely
I usually like seeing my provider she just seemed really invested in her own worries and bot really cared or put any info about mine .I did tell her I was having trouble sleeping all she recommended was tylenol pm which I told her I had tried in the past and has not worked and she didnt give me a soultion for ut. I was actually really disappointed this time with my meeting with her.
Even though I live quite far (a 2-hour drive)... I prefer this medical clinic over others I have been to in the past. My only issue would be is that my medical records from years ago from a different practice wasn't transferred to Legacy. I will be updating my doctor at my next visit with the past medical file I have kept.
I saw Dr. Laudermilk for the first time [date removed] She is a dedicated physician and I plan to have her as my PCP for a long time.
Takes too long to get records from previous doctor into your system.
I felt this provider presented the recommendations respectfully, listened to my concerns and was very respectful when I chose options that were NOT what she recommended. I was never pushed or made to feel less valid because I chose to refuse an invasive procedure due to concerns about risks associated with that procedure.
Dr. Lowdermilk is very good. I have only been her patient for 1 yr. so have not had to see her often (luckily) because my health is generally good. But she is always respectful, attentive and helpful.
She listened to me and made me feel very comfortable. She was extremely nice and I look forward to seeing her again. I felt like I was in great hands.
It was all good! I am grateful for having medical help so well done so close to where I live. Thanks so much!
Nothing bad - all good.
Dr. Mary Frances Therese L. Lowdermilk was very thorough since I am a new patient for her. She is a most excellent listener and explained everything to me very well. We covered a lot and the time she spent was very valuable to me. I appreciated that she shared personal stories as well. She is easy to relate to.
She is very knowledgeablegreat personality and knows her stuffI'm very pleased
My last PCP retired. This was my first visit with my new PCP. I signed a form for Dr. Lowdermilk to obtain my medical records from my previous PCP.
Dr. Lowdermilk is very responsible with my physical needs and well being. Always makes sure I'm taking right amount of medighticatoin.
I feel very comfortable talking yo Dr. Lowdermilk. I love how she makes me feel at ease. She answers my questions and looks to the future in my care. I really appreciate that approach.
