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

By this time, I consider our doctor-patient relationship well established, and I feel comfortable discussing any of my medical questions. My wife attends my doctor visits in the exam office with us, and is a big help in putting health questions in context, remembering details of present and past symptoms and their dates of occurrence. This helps speed the exam process and sharpen the discussion in the exam room. I feel thankful to have these two people and the doctor's staff members at my side as I puzzle my way through my physical life processes.

Office policy (w.r.t. insurance, financial, privacy, etc.) should be disclosed AT THE TIME THE APPOINTMENT IS MADE, NOT WHEN THE patient shows up for the appointment. This would give patient to contact their insurance in advance.

I had a blood test taken at the Legacy Lab at the West Linn site. The tech for the lab test was especially personable, and very quick. Better than previous staff.

Office staff (receptionists) seemed to struggle with protocols _____ EPIC. Hassled me as to why I was coming in for BP check between visits. Couldn't find me in computer - kept asking if I had been previously seen by Dr. Zimmerman, very aggravating!

I have had two visits with Dr. Zimmerman where I was turned away because he wouldn't do Workman's Comp or FMLA paperwork. I had taken time off work for the appointments, only to have to leave and go to another provider. It would have been nice to know that he didn't do those things BEFORE the appointments. Office staff could have told me when I made the appointments.

I had to wait on the lab draw from the lab tech vs my MA who usually completes this task in the past. An additional 25 minutes later, I was able to leave.

I read a poor review online about dr. Zimmerman and almost cancelled. I was greeted with a very easy going, concerned and respectful doctor. I was very impressed and will definitely make him my primary physician

I wasn't happy in the past with Dr. Zimmerman. This visit I brought a friend with me who happens to a retired cardiologist. I received better results this visit. He seemed to take my concerns more seriously.
