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 able to communicate chest pain and shortness of breath problem to Dr. Barlow via e-mail and phone. I was able to see him immediately. He did an ekg and arranged contact with a cardiologist and adjusted my medication. Dr. Barlow knows me very well and I am very comfortable with him and the care he provides.

Too busy! Dr. may not schedule enough time for appointments and falls behind schedule. Dr. seems to spend considerable time logging the details of the appointment and entering new prescriptions leaving patient waiting alone for 20 to 25 minutes before releasing to leave. Suggest electronic device to log details of the visit as visit progresses.

At reception I was told to have a seat without being asked even why I was there. Multiple people with appointments well after mine just walked up to reception and were taken care of. I grew tired of being ignored.

I feel as though I am extremely lucky to have Dr. Barlow as my primary physician. Dr. Barlow is an excellent doctor. Each time Dr. Barlow will treat me with exceptional professionalism and friendliness. For years, each time I visit Dr. Barlow he will make sure we take enough time to cover every aspect of my physical and mental health and every time I leave his office knowing I am in good hands! A perfect doctor and a perfect human being! I am also very impressed with the treatment I receive from his staff, before, during and after the appointments.

I am so thankful to have Dr. Barlow there to look out for my long-term health needs. He is extremely knowledgeable, and treats my ongoing health issues with the latest drugs and methods available. He regularly checks my test results, and modifies my medications as necessary. There is no other doctor that I would rather see.

With respect to the question on lab result communications. I do get notified, by e-mail, when the results are available and login to MyHealth to review the results. While Dr. Barlow or his office usually doesn't call me when everything is in the normal/expected range, they will and have called when they are not.

Everyone was extremely nice, especially the receptionist who checked me in. she was the best example of how people should be treated. Dr. Barlow is always a straight shooter with me and I really appreciate that. He listens to my concerns and issues and comes up with treatments that fit what he believes to be the best next steps.

I've been with Dr. Barlow for 11 years or so....he is personable, he listens, he is a good fit for me as he is friendly and forthright and is interested in helping me. This visit he spent time helping me find some answers to some questions I had. He has resources at the ready and was very supportive. I shared some good news and he was genuinely happy for me. I really appreciate his attention to my care and I think Legacy is fortunate to have him on staff. Thank you for the opportunity.

Often visits take a long time. The one question I asked was not looked at/checked out - during the visit I had a physical - not what I was expecting and really wasn't comfortable wearing the gown I was given & asked to put on.

After my visit I spoke to the doctor and nurse and they both told me they were expecting new patients. But when I called the next day to get my husband in to meet Dr. Barlow the receptionist told me that Dr. Barlow wasn't accepting any patients. I think there needs to be a better communication between the doctor and nurse with the receptionist about accepting new patients because it was a little bit frustrating. Your told one thing but than less than 24 hours you're told another thing.

didn't listen to my CC. nice enough of a person, but i'd want my provider to LISTEN. TO. MY. CC. how hard is that?? not one second spent explaining the differential dx, not one second spent explaining why labs were ordered, and the possible tx modality and protocol based on those labs. bonus: i've had to EMAIL to get my labs uploaded so i can print them and consult other physicians for my issues.

I waited 1 1/2 hrs. to be seen be Dr. Barlow two days after a spinal compression fracture. The appointment was intended to address unmet issues until I could see my PCP. Dr. Barlow was not sensitive about my pain level and did not inquire about my experience with pain control following two recent knee replacements. he then took another half hour to arrive with prescriptions for pain control so inadequate that I have spent the last five days in complete agony. this really didn't work for me.

I had to wait over an hour before seeing the doctor. I made the appointment in excess of a week earlier. It appeared he spent most of the time time trying to understand the computer. I believe he did some updating of my records. I did not feel that my questions and concerns were addressed completely.

Start me up. Prior to my appointment, I completed online the Wellness Exam Questionnaire. I also printed this out and brought to my appointment as directed. Turns out that the receptionist requested my printed questionnaire to which I commented that I had already completed the online questionnaire. The receptionist acknowledged this to which I replied that this seems unnecessary and wasteful, she grunted and took my questionnaire. If I complete a form online, I should not have to print it out and bring it to the appointment. I can't get no satisfaction.

I have been seeing Dr. Barlow for a number of years and he has always been very involved in my care but the move to this office has made it much more difficult to get direct and accurate responses to questions, lab orders and prescription refills.

the positive experience is the clinic is run very well in terms of the reception, doctor's visit.The negative feedback would be that I cannot always get an appointment with my regular doctor and sometimes I have to wait for a longer time than I used to do in his previous office

Dr. Barlow listened well and gave me the information I requested. When he left the exam room I understood that he would return with instructions and to answer my questions about a medication that he recommended. The person who came back with the prescription was very impersonal and robotic in answering my questions, which was concerning to me. She said that she would email Dr. Barlow with my questions and that someone would call me. I have not received a call.

Dr. Barlow was nice, but my appt was at 4:05 and I didn't get out of the office till 5:33. It was made known to me (by the receptionist) that Dr. Barlow is always behind schedule... which was a put-off to me.
