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. Robins showed great insight into the results of my TAVR surgery, and made a diagnose which my cardiologist had missed, and made further explanations of the affects of the surgery. He gave me new confidence in the results of the procedure.

I like Dr Robins. It will take a little more time to establish a level of rapport that I like to have in my health care professionals but I think he has great potential as a good fit for me and I'm glad to have chosen him as my new PCP. Now all I need is a little more time.

Good listener, attentive and technically knowledgeable (at least as far as I am able to tell-I trust him). Also appreciate the soundness of advice keeping it as simple yet realistic as possible and not jumping to potentially more complex solutions right away yet being very careful with the evaluation of apparent conditions/symptoms. Really appreciate that approach.

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.

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.

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......
