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. Tarrazona-Yu LISTENED to me! She showed genuine concern for my health. She followed up on my high MCV blood test, which NO OTHER legacy doctor has done. She spent a lot of time with me.

This provider is not my PCP, who is amazing. This provider did not have a full understanding of how to use the knee brace that she gave to use. I educated myself at home by going online and finding that information. She also did not give me clear instructions for care other than making a referral to an Orthopedic. Again, I find out the proper info at home by going online. I am a Natural Health Practitioner and as such, fortunately had some insight into follow up care and know what sites to check for further followup care instructions.

Good visit, spent significant amount of time with me. Dissatisfied with being told I need to go on a prescription medication without knowing my health history.

The visit felt rushed with both the provider and medical assistant. I felt like I kept needing to make sure important information wasn't left out because there was too much time wasted on going over survey questions I was made to do before hand. I left having more questions than I do answers about my concerns.

Dr T, comes across as uncaring, unfriendly and impatient and seems annoyed if I choose not to do things I feel are unnecessary. I don?t feel comfortable under her care. T. I am considering a change to a different Doctor.

Even though I arrived late (because of traffic and construction projects), I still got courteous and complete care.

I moved to Portland from out of state in early [month removed]. My first agenda was to find a primary doctor for my mom who is [age removed] years old. I found Dr. Yu. We both really liked her. After getting my mom set up with all her health care, it was time for me to do the same. I called Legacy Emanuel offices and they gave me 4 doctors who were accepting new patients. Dr. Yu was one of them. They said I could research each of them to decide who best fit my needs. I was about begin researching when I realized I really liked everything about Dr. Yu so why not have her as my primary doctor as well. So I made an appointment with her and am so happy I did.

Dr. T. exhibits a genius event concern for my fathers health. it is obvious she has read his health history prior to seeing him. she listens to his concerns. she has always provided the care necessary to resolve his issue or concern.she is an excellent doctor.

She don't explain things and also she should make more notes about health concerns. She should be a sympathetic doctor not just doing her job. She is just okay.

she's very nice, just did not spend much time with me, I did not ask questions that I wanted emailed her later with my concerns, yes she did answer them. I am taking cholesterol medicine and I wanted to stop because it could cause liver damage why would I want to continue with atorastatin. I didn't feel her explanation assured me one way or another.

Dr Pamela Tarrazona-Yu is always cheerful and I never feel rushed. After going through what I am there for, she always asks if there are any other issues I need to discuss. She puts me at ease so that I can talk to her about anything, and she genuinely listens to what I have to say. I always leave feeling very good about the visit. she is definitely a thoughtful, caring and thorough doctor. Thank you for having her accept Medicare.

The worst part was the woman who was my M.A. and checked me in. When I told her I wanted to be weighed in nothing but a gown, she seemed annoyed. When I told her that the previous visit's M.A. didn't seem to mind, she became even more annoyed. She took my blood pressure and tossed the cuff, then seemed to ask all my health questions in an annoyed voice. Then she left me a gown and said I could "weight myself" right outside. I waited for her to return, and when she didn't, I took it upon myself to go to the scale. As I did so, another employee nearby saw me and thought I was lost. When I explained to her that my M.A. left me to do my own weight, she seemed shocked. I went back to my exam room, and a few minutes later the M.A. returned and said, "so did you weight yourself?" I told her I did and gave her the number. She never once apologized or seemed to find it odd that she just had a patient weight herself. I work for Legacy, and seeing this customer service was irritating. I really hope she sees this and understands that you shouldn't treat patients like they are wasting your time, while you are there doing your job.

I didn't like the wait in the consultation room - took about 20-25 minutes for the doctor to appear - and had to ask for her. Otherwise, she's always great.

Dr. Tarrazona-yu not only helped me with the issues I saw her for, she also recommended other medical appointments with other Doctors that I should see.
