Dr Smith is very thorough and helpful. The time I have is always a bit short, so I need to schedule appts more often so we can keep up, especially when urgent matters come along, we need to be caught up on everything else.

This was the first visit with this provider due to previous doctor retirement. I liked this doctor and she was very professional and knowledgeable. I will adopt her as my new primary care doctor.

This was my initial visit with Dr Smith. She spent a lot of time with me. She's knowledgeable, caring, intuitive and thorough. I made an appt for my boyfriend I liked her so much. He's also new to town and needs a new physician.

This provide didn't listen to me about things I'm trying to manage my pain. She also posted in correct comments in the after visit notes in my chart that are NOT true what so ever. She stated that I am not interested in trying alternative things to try and manage my pain. That is NOT true. I had REPEATEDLY told her that I try SEVERAL different things along with taking medication. So I feel that this provider needs to correct those statements in my chart. Also I will be recording all future appointments with this provider so that this does NOT happen again.

Dr. Smith & her staff are always professional & thorough. The CMA neglected to sanitize the thermometer between patients & then put it down on a tray to be used again.

Dr. Beth always treats me with respect and empathy. If I say something is wrong, she asks questions to understand the root of the issue and never just questions my experience. She trusts her patients, and in turn it's easy to trust her as a care provider. I would recommend her to anybody!

I needed a cortisone shot in my arm due to pain from an injury. Dr refused to do the shot at this visit. Next available appointment was one month away. Why couldn't I get the injection at this visit? It does not make sense or refer me to a provider who could do it sooner. This is a broken system!

One reason I was at this appt was for covid booster. Between 2 consecutive appts I was here for over 2 hours and running late for other commitments. The booster was the last thing done after everything else was completed, after which I was told I needed to wait an additional 15 minutes obersvational period. I would have liked to see the booster given earlier so the observation period could have coincided with all the waiting I did while there, instead of at the end and making me wait even longer.

I think doctors must be so busy. I had hoped fit s follow up related to cause when I scheduled this visit. But that didn't happen and I felt Dr Smith just needed to get in and get the cortisone injections done and move on. Usually (ore-pandemic) she has more time for me to ask questions.

Dr. Smith's suggested what she thought was the medical issue for which I came to see her about, and she clearly explained why she thought this. She listened to me, answered my questions and showed a very caring nature toward me. She gave me clear instructions regarding how to take care of the issue at home. I was very pleased with the care I received from Dr. Smith.

Dr. Smith is kind, knowledgeable, and attentive.

She answers all my questions and is quick to reply to emails as well. Legacy is lucky to have her!

Sometimes I feel that my prescription has or does have a adverse impact on my body and my health issues. I want to be able to discuss my situation and concerns about my life and how it will help or hinder my taking care of myself. I have concerns about Metformin and my legs and feet about reactions for my balance and my feet . I already have alot of medical issues with my pelvis and lower back and sacrum. My actual balance is not going well and I am trying to exercise and my balance is not doing well even though I exercise.

It was my first visit with a regular western medical professional after a long time, having been treating myself alternatively for most of my life, using homeopathy, herbs and acupuncture to maintain my health, as well as a good diet, but with my current IBS for the past year, decided to seek a different perspective, and was pleasantly surprised at how easy and informative it was. She will be my PCP at this point for my Medicare Advantage insurance.

Dr. Smith seems to be in a hurry. She is intelligent, kind & well meaning and I feel rushed & confined to address only one health concern during appointments. The appointments are 10-20 minutes in length. I wonder if Dr. Smith is overworked.
