Legacy Medical Group-Woodburn

About Me:

My philosphy is straight forward: when you have a good primary care physician, with easy access to care and we have a good relationship, you will find that most of your problems can be handled as an outpatient. Your health and life depend on you having someone you can talk to and be heard by. I believe that good public health is the primary basis for all of healthcare. Public health comes in many forms, but over my career I have become concerned about a form of public health I call spiritual public health. I believe each of us is continuously growing and developing in many ways throughout our lives. My mid-life work has taught me the value and importance of developing our souls. I believe every stage of life has a spiritual journey which needs development and expression. To the extent we are successful at this development, we will have good spiritual public health. Hobbies include: Hiking, Music, Photography, Art, Hunting, Gardening

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

The Provider, over the past 15 years, has always provided me with attentive listening and clear and studied advice. He has great bedside manner, open to opinion and my personal observations, discusses and explains advice clearly and understandably. I cannot provide a higher recommendation and I have sent family members to him for their care. Good Job!

Dr. Climer is by far the best Internal Medicine doctor I've ever been with and I'm [age removed] years old. He always takes time for you and he never acts rushed to see his next patient. He is kind, understanding and very supportive. He explains everything in a way you can understand and wants only the best for you. I have recommended him to several friends who now have him as their primary provider and all have said they are so happy to have finally found a great doctor who not only listens but cares about them as a person and is very considerate of what your concerns are. Dr. Climer in my opinion is the best of the best! I always recommend him to family and friends! I think that says a lot about him, not only as a doctor but as a person who deeply cares about each one of his patients.

Dr. Climer NEVER makes me feel unimportant, is not autocratic in his attitude, does not criticize me for using "alternate" treatments or supplements, is willing to share HIMSELF with me which I like very much.

EVERY TIME I had additional questions or concerns, Dr. Climer and his PA. answered them with dignity and clearness. if the answers were not readily known..Dr. Climer would look the answers up right in front of me and while my questions were still fresh.

I have recommended Dr. Climer to 3 of my relatives and friends. Each one raves about Dr. Climer's concern. I'd hate to have to go anywhere else, as he is unparalleled with his empathy.

Dr. Climer takes the quickest easiest way to diagnosis a problem and is not very thorough. It seems as if he is afraid to treat me in a normal Doctor/Patient manner.

Dr Climer was very patient and took more time to evaluate the patient than I would have expected in situation. The evaluation was preparatory for going into a Memory Care facility, and was very thorough. We were very appreciative. (signed) the patient's husband

Dr. Climer always takes time to listen to what your concerns are without making you feel that he is too busy, or doesn't really care about the reason(s) you have come. Then he makes every effort to figure out the best plan of action to effectively deal with your concerns and follows through on the plan. The office staff, Vickie, and others, is always very friendly and helpful, whether they are contacted by phone or in person. They always leave you with the feeling that your concerns are theirs as well. Dr. Climer's physician's assistant, Roberto, is very thorough in the preparatory questions and the follow through on what Dr. Climer needs done that a PA can deal with.

My previous experience with Dr. Climer (about 2 years ago) was not the best. This time he listened, explained and even got an orthopedic manual to show me about my problem. He was courteous, knowledgeable, and presented in a very caring manner. I appreciate the change in his demeanor and bedside manner.

I requested a hard copy of my blood work and learned from a notation that I have Chronic Kidney Disease Stage lll. No one notified me and no request for a follow up appointment was made. I imagine it is something fairly serious and requires treatment or a referral to a specialist.
