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

First visit with this primary care provider. Doctor was recommended and selected in part by my former PCP who has left Legacy Health to live in Europe. Dr Van Hauve made a good recommendation for me.

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Robins. A little over a year I started seeing him because during a hospital stay I was diagnosed with type-2 diabetes. With Dr. Robins guidance help my A1C went from over 11% to 5.5%.

We (my husband and I) had been patients of Dr. van Havre and we were so pleased with her care. She recommended Dr. Robins and this was our 1st visit with him. We liked him very much and are pleased to have him as our Dr. We found his suggestions about our health very helpful and practical. We received immediate results from a test we had with him after we returned home.

Had never visited this office previously or had any contact with the physician I saw. My primary care physician's office had recommended this specialist's office. Excellent service!

First visit with this doctor as my previous primary care doctor moved away. Dr. Robins seems very kind, interested and informative. Would have given him an even higher rating but this was my first visit ever with him.

Dr. Robins is the best doctor I've ever had the pleasure of seeing. I have had such bad experiences with healthcare providers in the past and has helped me overcome my discomfort with and fear of visiting the doctor's office. He takes his time, remembers details about me and my life and treats me more like a friend than a patient. He's never in a rush, yet he's always running on time. He is the kind of brand ambassador you want representing your institution and I hope you do everything in your power to hang on to him. He is one of a kind.

Dr Robins made time in his busy schedule for a last minute appointment. I was so impressed with his flexibility and willingness to see me right away, as I was leaving town that day. Great service and follow through!

He did use some terminology that was hard for me to understand, but was very helpful. He followed up right away about my lab tests and called in prescriptions for me right away.

I'll probably be changing to this provider. He seems competent, unjaded, and still appears to put patient care over bureaucracy.

Excellent visit- dealt with two concerning issues received a printout immediately of our visit including what tests were needed-had blood test/xray right after seeing doctor and received the results the next morning. Plus a message from Dr. Robins clarifying the results plus what OTC to use at home. Was relieved that had only minor issues that were taken care of so well.

I was very pleased to get my lab tests back soon. (I was worried about pre-diabetes.) Dr. Skye was very attentive but didn't order new drug for my high blood pressure right away, but urged me to take my blood pressure at home and send him the readings first.

This was my first visit with Dr. Robins. [details deleted to protect privacy] As for our meeting yesterday, Dr. Robins was excellent. He covered my full health range, checked me over, answered all my questions and requested me to do certain things prior to our next visit. He was relaxed, direct, and made me feel "right at home" during his health interview! As the clinic had made no calls to me for some time requesting me to make an appointment for my annual physical, I asked that, in the future, this be done. He simply said, " Make an appointment as you leave today, and I'd like to see you in six months!" That I did! I am pleased with the results......

Since my previous primary care doctor has retired, this was a first visit with Dr Robins who spent a generous amount of time with me to talk about preventive health and review my small list of health issues. He seemed very knowledgeable about all of the issues discussed and helped me reconsider some preventive and maintenance strategies that are out of date.

Once again, Dr. Robins was very pleasant and helpful! I'm still getting used to a new health insurance as well as the Legacy Medical Group. Sometimes instructions for referrals and follow-ups can be a bit confusing for me. I need to have very clear and specific written summaries and instructions.
