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

Everyone was extremely helpful and professional. All the way from the receptionist that greeted, the receiving nurse and Dr. Zimmerman. This was my first visit to this clinic and it will now be my primary care facility. Loved the experience.

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!
