Megan was the doctor's assistant she is always very sweet and a pleasure to be around. Dr zinser is great he explains things so well I always feel a great sense of relief from any of the concerns I've had he goes over everything, orders tests that he thinks might be necessary and I am very thankful to have him as my doctor.

  Feb 9, 2024
Unfortunately I will not be able to continue using Legacy for my health care because legacy and Regence BlueCross cannot get together on payment rates. If Legacy leaves Regence I will drop both of you as a matter of principle I like Legacy but will not tolerate having to make any type of switch so I will dump both of you if Legacy and Regence cannot come to terms

Dr. Zinser was incredible. It was my first visit to see him as my new primary care physician. Its knowledge about myself and my record was exemplary.

We often discuss our Healthcare provider with friends who have different providers that don't offer the same exemplary care and service that I receive. I guess that would be called "Bragging"!

Dr. Z is definately the best dr there but he has too many patients. When I make an appt its always several days out and they try to get me to see someone else.

Firwood does a great job. I feel comfortable, and safe in the office. I see things running smoothly when I come in for visits. The staff here does provide good general practices. These things are important so you can focus on your care, and it's appreciated. I have shared good and bad experiences here. Life Is like that, and I have found Legacy Firwood to provide the level of care that is necessary to continue healthy living. Thank you

I love Deryk Zinser! I'm fortunate to have him as mine and my families doctor!

  May 25, 2023
Dr Zinser is a great rural doc. His nurses and MA staff are also excellent and can often handle issues without taking Zinser's time. I do not like the management and director staff at Legacy. There is no one who advocates for patients.Higher up managers do more to support your great front line staff. The phone recordings are horrible. Make so a patient can get to a human easier. The humans at Firwood are excellent. Treat them like the treasures they are and get rid of the recordings on the phone.

  May 25, 2023
Was pleased with my visit.

  May 23, 2023
