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

I was shocked that in the visit summary a complete assessment was documented. Things like my lungs were clear, ears okay, heart rate regular yet none of these things were done. In fact Dr Lowder did no physical assessment of me.

I am very pleased to have Dr. Lowder as my new Dr., this being my first experience with Legacy. My husband was seen by Dr. Lowder yesterday for first time. He was in severe back pain, and Dr. was very compassionate and efficient in getting us help. Upon this visit, I decided I wanted him to be my new Dr too. We feel blessed to have it work out this way, and relieved to have landed in the care of a good Dr who listens and cares.

this was my first meeting with the dr. it took 3 months to get an Appt. but I was willing to wait as his reviews were awesome. I was afraid I'd be rushed but it was exactly the opposite. I'm so glad to have found this dr and his staff too.

Dr. Lowder always pays attention and makes me feel like he's giving me credit for my own feelings about any physical/emotional problem/situation. He has always been very good this way. That is saying a LOT for a doctor, in my experience.

Dr. Lowder and his support staff are understanding about our medical needs and situation. (My husband has advancing Parkinson's.) He listened and offered good counsel. He got my prescriptions refilled immediately after months without them. We are now established as his regular patients. Much appreciated!!

This was my first visit, to establish care. One of my main concerns to address was difficulty breathing. I had just had a Covid test (negative) 5 days prior to my visit. I was astounded that there was NO physical exam. Dr. Lowder didn't even listen to my lungs. This is patient care 101. I will be finding a new provider. He's very nice, but I didn't leave my appointment feeling confident about my future care.

Friendly and professional receptionists and doctor - thank you. 2 other comments: 1. Prebrief for Regular Check-up stated that if i discuss any unusual health issues, I may receive extra charges. This effected almost the first question the doctor had for me, "any health issues you want to discuss", the answer was "no, I was told I could be charged more for doing so". I have several issues I want the doctor to be aware of, but nothing acute, so said nothing. Is this the effect you wanted by that disclosure? 2. Second time I have used the separate but associated lab. I can't say it was a seamless experience. Another check-in, another wait albeit short. Another waiver to sign. Couldn't get back to the main office without walking outside then back-in to ask if I was complete. And finally, second time in this office lab - both times felt rushed by staff demeanor. The first time a strong odor of smoking was present - I suspect from one of the office staff. Other than that, good experience overall. I like the myhealth portal and ease of connecting other health records and follow-up by staff in routing paperwork.

We transferred our medical support from Adventist Health when our providers closed their office. Dr Lowder's team welcomed us with open arms and during our intake interview we found this team to be great-very professional, knowledgeable and caring. Glad we were forced to make the switch to Dr Lowder's team.
