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. Cetas was my breast cancer surgeon. She has always excelled and forthcoming with information to source out any concerns I may have; which is an asset I always insist on coming from any of my doctor's. Cetas is an exemplary surgeon and doctor.

Dr. Cetas has been among the best physicians I have had. She was persistent in getting an accurate diagnosis for my breast cancer, and in explaining the results and needed surgery. This visit was my first annual exam since surgery. She was aware of the heart issues I have had since then. I totally trust her

Dr. Cetas took a great deal of time to talk about and understand my health concerns and also to know me as a person. I was very surprised that a surgeon would want to know the whole person and not just the medical issue that brought me to her office.
