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

He did a thorough exam and ordered a blood test to see if a potential for a blood clot. my numbers were slightly elevated so he recommended an ultrasound which got scheduled the same day. it came out fine. I am thankful I dont have a blood clot. I appreciate his good care.

Legacy has always been a great provider. I had a week long stay at Emmanuel in Portland and the tight integration between the two was seamless. That's an huge feather in Legacy's cap for sure!

Both myself & wife had first time appointments and I paid my co-pay and she was told first time appointments had no co-pay. We were confused. Talked to office mgt. already and she will train better front desk.

Dr. Lowder was up to date in the information in my file, including information from outside of the Legacy system. He answered all of my questions and explained the logic of his recommendations, including research on topics that we discussed. He explained things VERY clearly.

Who ever answered the first request for a visit within the week because of extreme pain, that person could have been more helpful. Call back tomorrow was what I got. That could have discouraged me from calling for any help whatsoever. First contact is important. I did have my caregiver call for the request, not me. I only heard and saw her response to the person. She was questionable about response. FYI

Dr. Lowder comes in with a smile and warm handshake and makes me smile and laugh and glad to be alive. Dr. Lowder is the most patient focused physician I have seen in years. I never feel rushed or pressed. Dr. Lowder should be appointed to mentor the medical staff on patient engagement.

Dr. Lowder is the best primary doctor!! I just had open heart surgery and triple bypass: He takes great care of this "old man." Legacy nurses are the best in the business (hospital).

Dr. Lowder listens and makes recommendations that make sense. He seems to understand my condition and makes suggestions and recommendations that are for my best interest. He is also pleasant and makes medical visits enjoyable, when they have been dreaded in the past.
