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 Winter has made my treatment with cancer as positive and informed as it could be. He is warm, listens, understands the anxiety of going through this experience as if he were a patient. He & his office is always there for me. He answered the many questions I had while making me feel valued & re-explained things I didn't understand in a way that made sense to me. He co-ordinated care with my radiation oncologist and the two offices worked together easily so that I didn't need to be the go-between. Excellent care from an intelligent, informed, kind, thoughtful provider. Thank you Dr Winter and all your staff and co-workers.

Dr Winter bent over backwards to inform and explain and even followed up with a phone call the next evening. He is very reassuring during this stressful time.

This was my first time to this office and first time seeing Dr. Winter. I was referred to him because of the discovery on an MRI of a very large mass in my pelvic area that may or may not be cancer. I was able to quickly get an appointment to see Dr. Winter given that this was an urgent matter. I was understandably anxious going on, and I'm happy to say that everyone there was amazing. So nice and personable and really made a crap situation as easy to handle as possible. (I've had cancer in the past, and I've had doctors who were terrible in how they interacted with patients.) Dr. Winter definitely took my concerns into account, and I liked his sense of humor - again, in a stressful situation, that kind of thing is critical. (I didn't finish answering the question about the test, because I'm getting the CT scan tomorrow.)

I was referred to this provider for surgery and felt that I was in the best hands possible for my care. Provider and staff are all dedicated, caring and compassionate. Could not be happier with the experience.

I was very pleased that the biopsy results are not clearly cancer; and the surgery that I am scheduled for will be an enhanced biopsy. Dr Winter was very clear he is not sure if this is a cancer or not. That we will face another surgery once we get the results.

The provider is a specialist and is probably not available with out a referral. My only issue with my visit was the parking. Not all vehicles are compacts. Realize that as many vehicles as possible are wanted we need space to get out of the vehicle and back in with out kissing paint with the vehicle in the next space. Thank you.

this was a follow up appointment for cancer treatment. the chemo and radiation was done in another area to prevent long comute. thought the visit was very brief and doctor in hurry and not sure he looked at previous medical chart since I saw him 4 months before. thought they were going to invite my daughter back in after vaginal exam for questions etc but right after exam I was good to go. guess that is ok. seemed s little unusual for Doctor winters from my previous visits. still rate him very high and a great doctor.

I can't tell you how much I appreciate Dr. Winter and his staff. Dr. Winter in fabulous. I feel such a comfort with him. He has such a calming personality. He makes me feel secure as a patient. His demeanor is excellent. His nurses are always smiling. His one receptionist, Nikki, think is her spelling, I can't tell you what a kind, wonderful person she is. She makes you feel like you are number 1 and that a patients concerns will be addressed immediately. She is kind, listens intently, shows appreciation when needed, her voice is calming. A calming smile. Legacy found a great caring employee for the office. I could write more but have to leave.

Dr. Winter and his staff are simply the best. from the moment you encounter the receptionists, they are nothing but warm and welcoming. Eager to learn about you and treat you as a person and not a patient. Dr. Winter's nurses and assistants are knowledgeable, caring and calming. Dr. Winter is the a true gem of a doctor. He is smart, skilled, genuine, caring and excellent guide for what can be a scary and unknown journey. He provided me with necessary information, talked through all options, answered all questions and provided care unparalleled care. I must say, I hope that I never need Dr. Winter's expert care again, but if I do, he is the only doctor I would consult!!!! Thank you and keep up the good work!!!!!

#12 there was no need for the office to give me results of labs b/c I have access to MyHealth.com. During this visit I found out I was no longer in remission & had many questions. I got answers to questions I needed to hear right now. Others can wait.

You asked about getting results for lab and x-rays ordered in the last 3 months. These things were ordered yesterday so I haven't gotten results back yet so I didn't answer the question.
