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

This was an annual visit and a look at my belly that has had a difficulty with the skin due to my being overweight. Ross did a very good exam expressing concerns and ordering lab work for blood glucose and reviewing my medications making changes. results indicated more follow up and new medications. I am pleased with the care that Ross provided. Thank you.

I was taken aback when I suggested Turf Toe, a common sport injury, and he did not know what it was. His diagnoses was gout. Still await blood test to confirm.

The parking garage is a joke! The parking spots are for toy cars. It needs to be repainted with spots that fit actual cars.

Ross Puterbaugh has been one of the best providers my husband and I have ever had. He is very thorough yet doesn't order anything we feel is unnecessary or excessive. And he always follows up if needed. And the staff we've interacted with have been very pleasant. It's not easy finding healthcare you can't always depend on. But we have found it with Ross and his office. And we are very thankful for his care and knowledge.

Ross Puterbaugh (forgive me if I misspelled his name), as well as his assistant, was wonderful. He was attentive and very personable. Showed interest in me personally, was helpful in recommending vaccines and preventative care measures. If I require any follow-up I will certainly make the appointment with him.

I was in for a follow up to an ED then admission to hospital for a PE. Ross became very concerned over the condition of my abdomen where I was getting my injections. He ordered and scheduled a CT and Lab work for same day and notified me of the results that same day.

I really appreciate the care Dr. Puterbaugh has always given to me. He takes his time and really cares about his Patients. He takes the time to make sure all of my questions are answered and has always made me feel comfortable and at ease. I am so thankful I found Dr. Puterbaugh after our Dr.s retired. A real asset to the Clinic.

Ross Puterbaugh has been one of the best providers I've ever had. He is efficient and yet not overly quick to schedule testing that doesn't seem necessary. I have always had great faith in his care.

it was good visit. just get tired of the whole, need to do drug therapy to see if it works. then move on to physical therapy, then months down the road finally get to the root of the problem. wish there was a way to skip the first parts and get right to the actual problem.

I was very surprised to see the majority of the staff to be considerably overweight. I am a new patient. Why should I trust my healthcare to a medical group that has such a high percentage of overweight people working for them. Just not right. I will weigh my options moving forward.

I escort my mom to all of her visits as she can't hear and isn't always following what people tell her. Our experience with Ross Puderbuagh has always been good. However, yesterdays appointment Ross showed the best of what a medical practitioner can offer. After a terrible fall my mom needed stitches removed. Ross is one of the few physicians that speaks to and with my mom a level that she can hear. He demonstrated genuine professional empathy, care and support for her and her needs. Thank you

Explemary care from every single individual I interacted with. I sent a message to the provider thanking him and his team for making a potentially very scary experience much better than I was worried it would be. Props to the transgender health office folks who also helped connect me with this provider, which is an invaluable service which I went outside the healthcare system I work for in order to have access to, and which others should seek to emulate. Thank you for doing what you do so well.
