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

Dr. Baugh is always good and knowledgeable, but like most all doctors he is pressed for time and, as a result, doesn't seem inclined to talk through all concerns at a conversational pace or at much length. Annual physical visits feel methodical and almost rote, to an extent, vs. a thoughtful interplay. That said he's clearly an experienced and responsive doctor and I would refer him to others without reservations. I suspect that most any GP faces the same time pressures that he faces, and patient experiences are probably about the same or much worse in many cases.

This was our annual wellness checkup for my husband and me. Dr. Baugh sees both of us at the same time so we each hear what he tells the other. This is so helpful for both of us, as Dr. Baugh is patient with our questions, listens to both of us (no matter which of us is being examined) and remembers details about our lives even when months have gone by between visits. He is great at explaining things, and makes us feel like we are partners in our health care. He's the best.

This provider is excellent! However the office staff handling correspondence has very poor attitude. Takes actions without any explanations/information or consents. May be the office is short on staff and has little time to think about patient's need.

Dr. Baugh is the best Internist in the business. it is always well worth the drive from my residence in [location removed] for a visit/treatment with Dr. Baugh.

It is SO frustrating on my schedule that I now have 2 years worth of annual checkup on my chart. Haven't had either and Dr. Baugh doesn't really know if they do much good. He was almost as shocked as I that one of your agents basically scheduled the annual checkup....he actually made the call and stayed on the line. (Which is an outrageous invasion of my privacy.) So, you guys are insistent that these annual checkups happen and Dr. Baugh just plain doesn't do them. He must feel I don't need them. This is a very baffling outcome from both the doctor and my insurance company.......end of rant.

Dr. Baugh has been my primary care provider for approximately 20 years. He has been top notch from the first time I had a visit with him and maintains that superiority to this day. I trust him, his decisions for my health and feel comfortable sharing even the most embarrassing issues with him without fear of judgement. He is absolutely THE BEST primary care provider in the Northwest, in my humble opinion.

Dr. Baugh discussed my health in general, the prescriptions I was taking and two lab tests he wanted me to do.

I never feel hurried during my visits with Dr. Baugh. He always answers my questions completely - in lay and medical terms. He is extremely knowledgeable in every aspect of my concerns.

I had expectations going into the visit and my most urgent issue was addressed and my need was dealt with. The second issue required a form I needed to redo concerning my future health needs.

Overall my visit was good, but due to time constraints I was not able to discuss completely the three issues I had listed when setting up my appointment via the web site. It always seems that once in the exam room, I am only allowed to bring up one concern. Rather than scheduling multiple visits for each issue, I would rather "bundle up" my two or three health concerns into a single appointment. For instance, in this visit I had requested that we discuss three issues [removed to protect privacy] I appreciate that Dr. Baugh's excellent services are in high demand and understand that one patient shouldn't be able to unduly monopolize his time. But I also feel that my full health situation was not addressed as well as I would have liked. I cherish my patient-doctor relationship with Dr. Baugh, but this appointment, like previous ones, does make me question whether another clinic might be able to serve my needs better. That, or I need to adjust my expectations, or advocate harder for myself.

Communications need to be improved. It was necessary for me to have two appointments for my blood draw because the first time I went in a signed work order was not available. The second time my work order was missing an important test. Dr. Baugh switched a medication after these tests. I was not advised until after I picked up my refill.

During this time of Covid, medical providers are working with less support staff and many challenges. I felt Dr. Baugh did an excellent job for my recent appointment, and he is adapting to these changes without cutting short any usual expectations by patients.

Dr. seemed disengaged during my visit. Didn't seem to know whey I was there until he looked on computer with me. I filled out the online questionnaire before I arrived. He got up to leave 3 different times I had to tell him that I had more questions and to please wait. He seem like a nice guy but didn't seem invested in what was going on with me.

it was the 1st time I had seen Dr. Baugh as my previous doctor had retired he seemed a bit tense but I think a visit in the time of pandemic made us both tense. He did order some blood work done & renew a prescription for me.

I rarely get asked for such a referral. When I have, I recommended LMG, but did not specify an MD, since there is no way for me to know what a good match/fit might be and since I have no way to know if a particular provider is taking new clients. The one person I did refer had a very difficult time getting/finding a provider in a decent amount of time, despite being insured through her job. For that reason, I try to stay on the sidelines in referring people.

my visit with Dr. Baugh was a bad experience. he was condescending, rushed and did not answer my questions. when asked if diet or lifestyle could be impacting my heart health, his response was I don't know, I'm not a cardiologist.'

I have had consistently positive experiences on this visit and other visits with Dr. Baugh as well as other doctors in this group, as well as positive experiences with this office and other staff here. My questions are always answered thoroughly and always feel that I have adequate time to voice my concerns and am never sped up.
