This was [name removed] first visit to this provider. But they were very thorough and thoughtful. It took some time before the provider had an appointment available, but we expected that. And it wasn't an issue. It was well worth the wait. She was very attentive and followed through on any tests she referred us too. Also addressed immediate concerns in the office visit.

Wait time is very bad needs to be on time 1 hour to late

  Apr 24, 2023
My visits with my provider has always been a good one.

  Apr 12, 2023
Dr Tarrazona-Yu is an excellent provider, she listens attentively, she is very thorough, personable, and I always feel as though my issues were completely addressed any time I have had contact with her.

  Mar 15, 2023
This visit I waited longer than I've ever waited . I understand there may have been a problem to cause the wait because I've never had a long wait before.

Receptionist & first assistant I talked to were lovely! Provider stated risk in a manor that was intense that made me anxious.

  Mar 8, 2023
This was a new patient visit. Dr. Tarrazona-Yu spent a lot of time going over past tests and issues. I left feeling that I had made an excellent choice when I picked her. She is kind and very competent.

Dr. Tarrazona Yu and the rest of the team at that location are absolutely wonderful. I hope Legacy does better by all their healthcare providers to ensure we are lucky enough to keep the good ones around.

Very good physician

I ended up waiting quite a while in the exam room--completely naked except for the paper gown--for the doctor to arrive. Not sure if they just thought I took like 20 min to take my clothes off or if there was some kind of delay. Not upset about it--stuff happens, esp when trying to give each patient attentive care, I know (my family's in the medical field). Literally everything else was great. I love my doctor and I have always had very positive experiences with any Legacy Medical employee I interacted with.

  Feb 14, 2023
The receptionists and assistants are consistently helpful, friendly & knowledgeable. The doctor listens patiently & follows-up on my concerns, but does not initiate review of my history nor suggest when to return for follow up visit.

  Feb 8, 2023
23 minute wait after appointment scheduled. During this time the staff (great gal) took blood pressure and pulse. 3-5 minutes most. Then waited for Dr. To come in

  Feb 7, 2023
Dr. did not look at my current dosage and prescribed the wrong dose. Dr. prescribed correct dosage when I told the office. I still had to pay for a prescription I did not need.

  Feb 6, 2023
All good, but why does every entity think we all have computers to access reports or other information. Some of us don't and would rather receive information such as medical/lab reports in the mail.

  Jan 30, 2023
Assistants were kind patient knowledgeable. This being my first visit, I'm relieved and impressed!

  Jan 25, 2023
All good experiences. Nothing negative.

  Jan 9, 2023
My most current appointment was very specific, but your office took the liberty of adding additional health items to the list of reasons I was being seen by the doctor during my appointment. (ie,,,pap, flu vaccine, pneumonia vaccine...) It frustrated and confused me when the medical assistant started listing off the other reasons. I had to take extra time to explain why I was seeing the doctor, and that I'd call the office to make appointments for the other reasons soon.

  Jan 3, 2023
Waited for 30 plus minutes before seeing provider. Clinic needs to communicate when the provider has not arrived.

  Dec 22, 2022
Very informative, professional and friendly

  Dec 21, 2022
I will probably be switching doctors offices. I waited 25 minutes for my doctor and last time I saw her I waited over an hour. I don't think I've ever had a good experience with this doctors office.

  Dec 19, 2022
The provider was late to my appointment which was scheduled at 8:25 am and she arrived at approximately 9:15am. The appointment was rushed, but since I am knowledgeable about my condition being rushed was okay. The outcome would differ for less knowledgeable patients that require more time. Overall, appointment was okay.

  Dec 19, 2022
Always feel like I am the most person at the time, I'm being see.

  Dec 12, 2022
Good.

Friendly receptionist and nurse assistant. Very organized and helpful.

Very good care

  Nov 3, 2022
Director give a 10. Got flu of COVID-19 shots wish I would of gotten pneumonia shot also. Got stitches removed.

  Sep 21, 2022
The doctor and her staff were very friendly and helpful. They all listened to all what I have to say regarding my health issues. I will definitely recommend her office to all my family and friends.

  Sep 20, 2022
I waited in the exam room for over half an hour past my appointment time and did appreciate a knock on the door letting me know the doctor would be there as quickly as possible. The visit felt rushed, I didn't feel like I could bother the doctor with questions I had prepared because she was late and rushing through things. I've had other appointments with her and find her to be incredibly kind and well-intentioned but increasingly behind schedule and hurrying through our visit. I come to appointments prepared with questions so I can make efficient use of everyone's time and I never feel like I am "allowed" to ask them. Now I'm left with questions that are important to me and wondering how to get them answered.

Great visit, dr. is always very thorough!

  Sep 13, 2022
Great visit with her after a long time no being in due to Covid.

  Sep 13, 2022
The wait time in the exam room was 35 mi.

  Sep 9, 2022
I think Dr Tarrazona Yu is very compassionate and she cares about her patients

  Sep 2, 2022
I would continue to recommend giving providers more time to have conversations rather than feeling rushed.

  Aug 25, 2022
The Medical Assistant was not the friendliest.

  Aug 18, 2022
All good.

  Aug 3, 2022
Good

  Aug 2, 2022
Everyone was kind and helpful.

  Jul 28, 2022
I always have good service..!

  Jul 27, 2022
Have always felt comfortable with this Dr. And she has saved my life a couple of times and I'm not afraid to ask her for her advice knowing she will always tell exactly what is best for me.

  Jul 22, 2022
Dr. Tarrazona-Yu is fine. I suspect that Legacy over schedules all GP's in such a way that the individual doctor doesn't really have time/space to connect w/patients. Bad on you all!

  Jul 20, 2022
Hello dear.Always my visit was with respect and caring . Thank you so much for all of you

  Jul 1, 2022
Good.

  Jun 29, 2022
Compassionate care, proactive health recommendations, positive outlook, extremely knowledgeable and personable doctor! Best doctor I've ever had!

  Jun 22, 2022
Visits tend to feel rushed, but I can tell my provider is doing her best

  Jun 21, 2022
Dr Tarrazona Yu is a great listener. I felt comfortable talking to her.

  Jun 21, 2022
I waited for over an hour after getting to the appointment. I do not blame Dr. Tarrazona-Yu for this -- in fact, she was very apologetic, and told me that she was the only provider there ( because other providers had called out sick). I feel that it is a systems issue that I was not notified by phone that she would be running over an hour late. I would have appropriately cominto my appointment an hour later, if this were the case. Personally, I felt like Legacy did not care about The importance of my personal time.

  Jun 17, 2022
I like Dr YU this was my first time meeting with her. She's Very thorough and I need that in a doctor with all the stuff going on with me we just didn't have enough time. Nice and pleasant I am impressed. Because before I came to this clinic I was afraid that I would Not have a doctor as good as my doctor I had before I came here. I believe we will get along Just fine. you have a blessed weekend

  Jun 16, 2022
I scheduled this appointment because I was in pain almost daily. I reached out to other doctors first because I haven't always feel the most heard in my past appointments with Dr Tarrazona-Yu. They directed me to my primary care physician and I went hoping for a different outcome this time. However, instead of actually addressing the problem, she spent the entire appointment lecturing me about using online programs for mental health care. I sat there crying out of pure frustration because I just wanted someone to help me with the pain that's been affecting my life for months. Instead, I got a lecture, and was sent away to schedule an appointment for a couple tests. My original concern was hardly addressed at all. I want to be treated like a person, not a checklist.

  Jun 7, 2022
I was not and am still not clear about what to ask for when when I call for an appointment for a check up visit where I can talk to the provider.I was quite disturbed when I received the After Visit Summary to see the "Order" to STOP taking herbal drugs. The doctor didn't discuss this with me at this visit nor give any reasons why I should stop these.
