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. Thomas is a compassionate doctor and is as empathetic as he knows how to be. I realize that there are constraints involved that he adheres to, but I also believe that he should be more aggressive in trying to help his patients find the relief that they need to live more fulfilling lives.

The physician is amazing! However the wait time is excessive as they double book every appointment it seems. The office staff seems to be overworked and rushed.

Normally I am taken back at the correct appointment time. At this appointment there was an emergency health issue with a prior patient. We were kept informed of the issue and everything was handled appropriately.

This is the second time I have been to this pain clinic, it has greatly improved. This time I don't feel like I am being treated like a drug addict off the streets and I am very thankful for that. I am pleased so far with the treatment and Dr. Strattenholzer has been great and I think we will go far with treatment.

I have been seeing Dr. Schrattenholzer for over three years. I have chronic pain ,and recently had shoulder surgery. Dr, listens and is very compassionate. Hhe takes the time that you need and answers all my questions. he works together with you to formulate a plan going forward and just always makes sure you are ok. great Dr.The only thing I will say is the receptionist could be a bit more pleasant and warm. I do not get that feeling when I check in or out.

I went to this doctor for the complaint of pain. After explaining that surgery would offer "only" a 50% chance of pain relief, he then began telling me all the different ways his office helps support tolerating chronic pain, and never ONCE offered the name of a surgeon who could offer me that 50% chance, or even addressing the possibility of surgery! After all, what HE was offering was a ZERO % chance of pain relief, and a 100% chance of living in pain the rest of my life!

I have been a patient of the clinic for [detail deleted to protect privacy] years, and I've been with Dr. Schrattenholzer for at least [date deleted] of that. He has always been informed, caring and willing to make the effort and take the time to provide the best care possible. The clinic staff could be described in the same way. Dr. S treats me as a part of the team that takes care of fairly complex medical problems, is always patient, is always kind. He makes referrals as needed and orders diagnostics and procedures we believe will be of help. I have nothing but good to say about Dr. Tom and the clinic staff, Tina, Barbara, Heidi, Katie, et al.

I wish there was more openings to see this doctor. I feel he needs more Dr.s in this office to assist him. I can't get in to see him even 3 months out. It's more like 4 months. That's not the Dr.s fault, its Legacy's fault for not having enough staff to see their patients.

Dr. Schrattenholzer is an excellent doctor and new exactly what I needed and set me up with the appointment I needed for my concerns. The physical therapy nurse that he had me speak with was also excellent.

I always feel that this clinic is trying to take over my doctors' authority & is trying to trick me - why the UA? I'm going to leave the clinic - I don't need it!

The dr. is the pain clinic person for legacy and good Samaritan, he is exceptionally busy, but he seems to care about me, and my health. much better than my primary care dr. The dr I have here, I only wish I could get injections more often as they do help. The dr. figured that out on his own, he also furnished a pain patch and that helps, I only wish it were fentyanal, I used to have that from the VA. All in all, this guy is the best I have ever seen and I have seen a lot, inc army surgeons and drs. I had a lot of injuries in Vietnam and now I am getting better care from this dr., than I got at the VA although I had several operations at the VA I am now searching for a new cardiology dr. as mine is retiring, because of this dr. here. I am going to look for one at legacy. Mine is [name deleted] at Peace Health, I just got a new devise installed by the [location deleted] gut reiss, I am not happy with but they don't seem to care. This dr here Thomas Schrattenholzer would not be that way. If he were able to do that I would have requested him. I would much prefer to be able to contact this dr with any health problem he was interested in my insertion point of the devise and even looked at it. I appreciate that. I would like to do something for him.

Dr.Schrattenholzer has always made the extra effort to do and suggest the best options for my care. I had no quality of life when I walked into the office in 2012. Now I do get to walk with my grandchildren and play with them. I had given up hope. Dr.Schrattenholzer opened many doors of good quality care in the legacy team. we all worked together for a better quality of life for me. Dr Schrattenholzer is my angel on earth,he listens,he never demeans me, he explains all options,and the office team is just as wonderful. thank you legacy for giving us a wonderful doctor and such wonderful care!

The 4 visits PRIOR to seeing Dr. Schrattenholzer on the [age and details deleted to protect privacy] were the WORST experiences I have ever had at any doctor's office. I spoke to the office manager at length about them but until Dr. Tim Roddy called I was not referred to another MD - I am currently being followed by Dr. Schrattenholzer, who treats me the way a doctor should treat a patient.
