Great staff beginning to end

Excellent care and service with dr tewfik as always

  Apr 22, 2024
Over all I've always had satisfactory services.

Every time I have my annual health exam with blood work I request a vitamin d test and I amALWAYS hassled about it by dr. Tewfik. Saying it's not covered under insurance and I will pay out of pocket and how he will get a call fromSomeone bc he approved it what is the big deal? It's MY health and a test I WANT and will pay for and frankly I'm sick of the harassment. Give me the tests I want and I will pay for it. It's ridiculous to give me a hard time for a Vit D test when I always test low and trying to get it to a healthier place. VIT D levels are crucial to many functions within the body so honor my request. :)

  Apr 19, 2024
I feel completely safe and respected and supported by Dr. Tewfik in any physical or mental health concern.

  Apr 19, 2024
Dr. Tewfik is a good communicator. He gave me plenty of time to express my concerns. He made a number of helpful recommendations and referals. Most of my interactions with this provider and staff have been on MyHealth portal, not the telephone. The delay in seeing me in the exam room seemed to be because of a difficult situation with the previous patient and needing more time. The doctor takes the time needed to attend to his patients' needs.

Dr Tewfik is one of the best providers in all legacy system, I am lucky to have him as a PCP

Dr Tewfik love the old school doctor rear breed the best

  Feb 26, 2024
Dr. Tewfik is very thorough and capable, but he moves and talks very quickly. Personally, I like that, but I don't know if I would recommend that for friends or family. Maybe he works more slowly for patients who prefer that, I don't know.

  Feb 16, 2024
Very busy that day. Short on help this day.

  Feb 16, 2024
Dr. Tewfik is truly one of the best providers. I drive quite a long distance to attend appointments with him and am so glad that I do!

  Feb 12, 2024
Dr. Tewfik is an excellent provider and the team is also excellent.

  Feb 12, 2024
ALWAYS have all medical needs and concerns thoroughly addressed by an excellent staff. Thank you.

  Feb 5, 2024
I'm very pleased with this visit as always, because my care provider listened to me.

  Feb 5, 2024
Dr Tewfik is a gem of a Dr. He is old school in that he takes his time and really wants to connect with his patient. I feel like I have the best advocate for my health!

  Jan 29, 2024
I've always had good service with Legacy's staff. No complaints about anything.

  Jan 19, 2024
He explains things really well. But when I brought up an example of what I experienced with my ear crud after not eating sugar for 3 weeks he apparently didn't think at first that it was relevant to the subject and urged me to stay on subject, whIch was diabetes. I explained to him that it was related. My question might have seemed to him a bit random in the overall context of the subject of diabetes.

  Jan 10, 2024
Dr Tewfik is a consummate professional, doesn't rush, listens well, and knows medicine

  Jan 8, 2024
On time, knowledgeable, succinct, professional demeanor, personable, helpful.

  Dec 22, 2023
The doctor was not aware I was there for an annual Medicare wellness check and didn't allow for more time. Why not? Fortunately, he was not too busy that day. Legacy records were not up to date on my vaccination records. Why not? My pharmacist said that's because the doctor's office has not retrieved the information from the national ALERT medical database.

  Dec 18, 2023
He is very good doctor I would recommend him to my family

  Dec 15, 2023

Doctor listened to my concerns and was proactive.

  Dec 6, 2023
This was my first visit with Dr. Tewfik. It all went very well except that he seemed rushed.

  Nov 27, 2023
Dr Tewfik has been my primary care doctor for many years and he has always provided the best care. He listens to my concerns, answers my questions in a way that is easily understood, recommends the right treatment for any health issues I've experienced. The reception and nursing staff are always very friendly, professional and courteous.

  Nov 24, 2023
Very Awesome

  Nov 22, 2023
I had not seen this doctor before. I was a patient of Urbach.

  Nov 17, 2023
He said he won't be my provider.He was rushed, impersonal.

  Nov 17, 2023
First time meeting Dr. Tewfik, excellent meeting! Took the the time to talk and listen to me, was very attentive because of my age! I was in good health and wanted to keep that way!!!

  Nov 15, 2023
Dr. Tewfik is fantastic. My former primary care doctor recently retired. Dr. Tewfik saw me for this appointment acting as a substitute primary care doctor. He had studied my medical record very thoroughly. He was very well prepared to discuss my medical situation with me. I left very Impressed by Dr. Tewfik. I wish I could have him for my new primary care doctor.

  Nov 13, 2023
The doctor explained what was going on and gave some great options that weren't antibiotics. I liked him a lot

  Nov 10, 2023
Dr. Tewfik is an amazing primary care physician I feel so fortunate to have such a caring, supportive and knowledgeable doctor.

  Nov 8, 2023
Facility is terrible. Needs paint. Things are broken. Invest a bit. This is your reflection to patients. The lab used to be good, it is absolute terrible now. What changed?

  Nov 6, 2023
Dr. Tewfik was kind and thorough. It was my first visit with him and I felt comfortable and well cared for. My questions were answered and his explanations were easy to understand. I would love to have him as my PCP when he is able to accept new patients.

  Nov 6, 2023
I want to single out the person who took my appointment. She understood that I badly needed to get in and found a way to wedge me in the beginning of a clinic day. I explain my situation to her and she found a way to get me in to see the doctor That was excellent Customerservice. I wish I could remember her name.The M A, that took care of me in the room and gave me my vaccinations was very very good. I explain to her that I sometimes have trouble with injections And she understood and took special care to be quick and as painless as possible and also engaged in the conversation, I was trying to make to keep my mind off of it. Big thumbs up to her.

  Nov 3, 2023
Dr Tewfik was very attentive and adressed all my needs and concerns

  Nov 3, 2023
Called for a blood draw at the Hospital across the street and all of the appointments are filled up for 2 weeks ! Usually a 5 day lead is enough time to get in so the MD has my results in front of him when I have the appointment.

  Oct 23, 2023
Dr Tewfik and his staff are very professional, compassionate and caring.

  Oct 18, 2023
The good doctor was filling in for my doctor and got me help for my current condition. I want to say thanks

  Oct 18, 2023
Dr Tewfik is verygood

  Oct 16, 2023
Agreed to combine appointments with my wife and me together. Thoroughly considered each of our medical and related conditions and concerns. Provided vaccinations each of us requested during our visit. Recommended and authorized additional testing for us to schedule. Allowed all the time as we needed for all of this service.

  Oct 16, 2023
Always excellent and meticulous care.

  Oct 13, 2023
Dr. Tewfik is an excellent provider. I practiced as well and I think he's one of the best providers I've ever seen or had the pleasure to meet. He is thorough knowledgeable and truly cares about your situation. I think his practice is full so I can't refer anybody to him, though

  Oct 13, 2023
Dr Tewfik is a wonderful doctor! He is a good listener and is proactive concerning my health. He has been my doctor for a very long time!

Receive excellent service

  Aug 18, 2023
Dr Tewfik is exceptional! He LISTENS, asks questions, offers suggestions, and is genuinely engaged. I've never felt rushed. He is a true, caring, healthcare professional. I wish you could duplicate him because I would refer him to EVERYONE.

  Aug 11, 2023
Friendly and courteous. It would be great if this doctor could be my permanent Dr.

  Aug 11, 2023
Good visit

  Aug 4, 2023
I had a little of things to ask the Dr. I gothrough about 2/3 of the question and Dr Tewfik said that my apt. Was for 20 minutes and the time was up. He said he was sorry and that I should schedule a Medicare apt for longer time. It would be nice if I had been told at time of apt that it was for only 20 minutes.. I'm worried about the state of our health care system and the seemingly overworked Dr's and nurses.

  Aug 4, 2023
I have been a patient of Dr. Tewfik's for more than 10 years. He is a caring, attentive physician. I can not say enough good things about him as my doctor.

  Aug 2, 2023
Parking lot ticket machine not working.., visited the hospital lab one week and Dr Tewfik the following week. Both times the ticket exit machine failed to read my tickets. If it helps, was parked in the garage across from Dr Tewfik's office and both times I validated in Dr Tewfik's bldg lobby.. Even better, can someone figure this out and credit my account for $20. Thanks

  Jul 31, 2023
Love Dr. Tewfik. There are some doctors in that clinic I refuse to see!
