This provider did what he could to address current physical health but had nothing to offer my acute on chronic emotional distress. This was a new patient appointment.

Ross P. Is a GREAT PROVIDER. He took his time and I never felt like I was being rushed. He listened to me and gave me positive feed back. THANK YOU ROSS FOR SUCH WONDERFUL CARE. I WOULD DEFINITELY GO BACK TO SEE HIM AND WILL RECOMMEND HIM TO MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY.

No really bad experience but Puterbaugh only spent about 5 min with me, and doubtful he had all my medical records, even tho my test results came back ok cant always rely on that, learned my lesson the hard way in 2009, have one more MD to see. Still a slight pressure on my chest.

Your Covid rules for masks are too strict and masks do not provide the protection you claim. If all your providers are vaccinated then the masks should be gone and people should be told to social distance.

I liked the flexibility to talk about a number of issues and feel like we had a common understanding of the way forward. I didn't expect or receive definitive answers, but I did leave with confidence that I knew next steps.

I had an upper respiratory infection,that was not healing.when I called the nurse last week and told her of my ailment and the she said what do you want me to tell the Dr.He cant't diagnose you over the phone?Go to ER I asked if she knew the conditions there and she said No? I called Vancouver Clinic Urgent Care to see if they would see me and they said they would.So next AM I went at 7/30 and was seen within 1/2 hr.They took my vitals and went back to w/room until a room was ready.The PA had my information I got the best care,went to get an X-ray then blood work.I was there 4 hours and even had another Covic test and they also had a test to see if it was the flu I have had all my shots including my booster.My visit is always good with all your Dr's.I was really disapointed It the nurse,and you asked about any bad experiences.I was a telephone operator for over 40 yrs.Thank you

He asked me if I had the vaccine (COVID) I said NO he asked if I wanted it I said NO I have antibodies - He said that's not enough & his whole demeanor changed. I asked him to put up my antibody blood test results. He did & said I didn't have antibodies. I asked him to please read the 2nd 1/2 of my test.

Excellent experience with Ross Puterbaugh, ANP. Finally, I have caregivers who actually care! After a Hospital stay,Legacy connected me to Ross in my search for a new Primary Care provider. The appointment ran on time and the Staff was very personable and accommodating to my needs. Ross listens and explains. Highly recommend.

First time seeing this doctor as my regular doctor could not see me in the allotted time that was suggested that I see her. He seemed capable and all tests her recommended have not gotten back with results -

I was a bit nervous about this first time visit to this ANp, because my regular GP retired. But my fears were quickly assuaged because Mr. Puterbaugh's demeanor and professionalism were excellent. I immediately felt comfortable and relaxed in speaking with him. And I soon became confident in his knowledge.

Doc sent me for lab work, I ran three blocks with a walker, disabled. I didn't make it by 2 minutes! They refused to answer the door, I was left in tears. I ran! And I have Cerebral Palsy! This is not acceptable! Just NOT acceptable! We had to leave no blood draws. Don't know if I will be back. I dislike Legacy with a passion! Too much walking, no provisions for the disabled, too inconvenient to get too.

The visit was basically to get another appointment with another doctor. When scheduling the appointment I mentioned what was wrong. When I got to the appointment, it was yes you have that let me give you a referral. Why did I waste my time with the appointment to now wait for the referral?

Nothing really bad, but there was an assembly-line, depersonalizing ambiance. of course, this was my first visit. Everything seemed so "industrial", if I can risk using that adjective. But I am essentially leaving my personal physician of the last 40-years and that makes me tentative.Hope to see you all again, soon! Thank you for everything.

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.
