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

I was given a call by the staff and was able to be seen because they squeezed me into an opening. The ability to be seen by my PCP when I need to (and not going to the ER) is one of the most important things I look for in a provider.

We had to re-schedule once due to doctor illness, and though I was the first on the doctor's docket that morning, I did not receive a call prior to entering the office - though other patients clearly were being notified of the cancellations. On the 2nd visit, the lab at the clinic was not open. So one routine visit is turning into 3.
