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. Breda combines great surgical expertise with a kind and patient manner -- those two things don't always go together; many surgeons with busy practices and reputations are pretty chilly. Dr Breda is thus a happy exception, friendly and with tremendous experience and esteemed by other docs.

The staff is friendly and respectful. They are always on time. I was given an answer to all my questions and never felt rushed at my appointments. Dr. Breda is wonderful and very respectful. He took his time both with me at my appointments and also in the planning of my surgery when I was not present. I would not hesitate for a minute to recommend him and his office to others.

Physician visit was prompt and Dr. Breda is professional and provides the patient an opportunity to ask questions and he seems concerned that you know the details of your condition and offers options for treatment.

I went in with a mental list of questions about my condition/problem. He gave such a complete explanation, with diagrams, that I never had to ask a question. He touched on them all plus some I hadn't thought to ask!

Dr Breda went way beyond what I'd expect from a routine consultation. Had surgical notes from a previous I had had, was thoughtful and detailed, with clear and useful recommendations

Dr. Breda and his staff were wonderful. I was treated well and did not have to wait. All of my questions were answered in terminology that I was able to understand. Everything was well documented and I was given all the information/instructions that I needed for my follow-up appointment. Dr. Breda asked if there was anything that I did not understand or if I had any questions. His office staff informed me that I could call anytime if I had further questions or need additional assistance.
