Frustrated when I couldn't discuss some things without making another appointment since this appointment was only for my yearly physical. Had asked ahead of time whether I would need a blood draw & was told that would be decided at appointment- so would need to make another appmt later for blood draw. Irritating- another appmt & bill!?!

  Oct 13, 2022
It was a little annoying that the lab was closed at the clinic.

  Oct 13, 2022
ALL OUR tests come back on My health - so they do not usually call about tests - but will answer if I have a question .As for receptionist - always seem too busy - when you walk in. - they have changed a few last couple yrs. Always seem to be new ones, not too friendly.

Dr. McKay is is an excellent doctor, listens with care and concern, truly cares about her patient well being, responds with action if during the conversation she feels it is necessary. Aging is not for sissies, but she treats me with respect and concerns as I try very hard to educate myself of the changes in my health!!! So far, so good with help of Dr. McKay's compassion for her care and patience!

Wonderful on-call telephone nurse provider, attentive medical assistant, caring and helpful doctor, outstanding attending nurse, caring receptionist, as well! Best possible care all the way around on my last appointment! I switched from Kaiser to Legacy because it's all the highest quality of care. Samantha and Erinn are always fabulous medical professionals in every way! How I appreciate and treasure my medical team, especially in the backdrop of the medical backlog during COVID, All this time, recently and always, I have had the best possible medical experiences. Thank you so much!

  Jul 18, 2022
Dr. McKay took her time, answered my questions and gave me good information.

  Jul 15, 2022
The doctor is pretty thorough. However, one thing that is frustrating as a patient is that you schedule your annual appointment and if something arises in the meantime, you can't discuss it with the doctor during a wellness exam. You are required to make another appointment. This seems like a poor use of everyone's time. I could have had an X-ray ordered and depending on the results, I then would schedule another appointment. Also, the blood draw could not be done due to staff shortage. If I would have known in advance, I could have gone somewhere else to do the lab ahead of time and have the results to discuss at my appointment. Seems like some better efficiency could be addressed.

  Jul 14, 2022
I enjoy my doctor, medical assistant and this clinic, they are all friendly caring and attentive
