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

I have seen Dr. Beers for over 30 years. He and I have a great relationship. Medical advice has been outstanding. He has been supportive of my climbing South Sister and Mt. St. Helen. His own efforts in climbing have been a model for me.

The provider left the room before i had an understanding of how to treat a particular skin lesion and he had to be requested for a return visit to clarify the treatment needed, but did so after around ten minutes. He always i very thorough, but this time, somewhat hurried.

Dr. Beers always knows me by name, history, and family situation. He is the finest doctor I've ever had with the possible exception of my childhood physician.

Dr. Beers and th staff have treated me with kindness, dignity, respect and empathy for over a decade. It's like visiting family when I'm there. They all are stellar examples of why the medical community should be and I always tell people how wonderful they are.

Dr Beers is extremely personable. he has a way of talking with you about serious health issues without talking down to you or over your head. I feel like he's family but also highly professional. I enjoy my visits and I feel well cared for.

Dr. Beers is the best. he has been my doctor for over [removed] years and he always knows me and my medical record when I see him. I currently have to drive hours for my appts so its a whole day a spend just to see him which I gladly do. I have ms so sometimes I need extra help understanding things and he's great at explaining things so I get it. he always goes the extra mile to make sure I get the best care possible and he's very thorough. Dr. Beers keeps up on all the ms stuff so that he can help me because over the years he has had to fill in as my neurologist a few times when I was without one and that's been very helpful to me and my medical needs in all aspects of my life. Dr. Beers is the best and I would recommend him 100 times over and anyone that can be lucky enough to have him for a doctor should be grateful because doctors like him are hard to come by these days.

The lab situation for this visit is/was deplorable. There was no lab personnel to draw blood. The nurse called the lab and there was a 2 hour 45 minutes wait. This seems to be the same situation for EVERY visit. To date, despite labs being ordered, I still have not scheduled a lab appointment.

This provider made me feel uncomfortable. I was asked to get into a gown for a standard physical for auscultation of heart and lungs which usually seems to always be done over appropriate clothing (was wearing a thin t-shirt). This provider spoke about himself a lot during the examination.

On-line check in was efficient and much appreciated. Nurses preparing me for the doctor were efficient and professional. Although my appointment was about a specific foot issue, Dr Beers took time to thoroughly review my overall health condition. Very happy with Dr Beers' knowledge and analysis of my health issues and his willingness to carefully explain what is happening and how the condition should be treated.

Dr beers was very friendly and frank. However, after I got home, I read the visit notes (I always do- I often learn things), and found a number of inaccuracies. There was several instances where he made notes on things we did not discuss. Several things that we _did_ discuss, his notes were not correct, or even the opposite of my answers or the discussion. All of this had me wondering if parts of the notes were confused with someone else. Or perhaps the notes were written later in the day, after some time had passed? I am concerned about these things, because if things aren't accurate in my chart, mistakes might happen, care might not be appropriate, etc. My body is rather uncooperative, and complicated. I've always thought that I am my own best advocate, so I want to make sure that I speak up. I sent a detailed letter to Dr Beers with my concerns. Have not yet received a reply. I'm sure that he is a good doctor, but this level of inattentiveness is concerning.

On my recent visit I experienced a shortness of breath "mask" once I entered the reception area fro some reason, it did not last, I had left the receptionist... and advised me to return and have Dr. Beers to examined me, which I did, all was OK. I went on with my visit & examination with Dr. Beers - I am glad I have Dr. Beers as my primary doctor, I can't say enough about him.

Dr. Beers is kind, respectful, funny, and very knowledgeable. This was a routine Medicare wellness visit. It is always a bit uncomfortable to discuss one's shortcomings in compliance or health maintenance in such visits. Dr. Beers really listened, but did not minimize the importance of these issues. He discussed things in a larger context, and captured my imagination to view my situation differently. I feel more hopeful about making changes, and I feel like I have someone to check in with if I need help or information. Thank you, Dr. Beers, for your kindness and unique skill in communicating.

As always, everyone was wonderful. The only bad thing, which would have cost me expensive out of pocket - the receptionist kept insisting on my Medicare card. I explained I've been told NEVER to give this out by Regence Insurance AND Care Assist who will pay nothing if Medicare gets billed, 100% paid if Regence and Care Assist are billed. She kept insisting Regence wouldn't know who I was if I didn't provide the Medicare card. Again, I've been told NEVER to give this out, in writing from Care Assist. Between them and Regence 100% is paid. They know who I am, I have insurance cards. She insisted they wouldn't know who I am without her having the Medicare Card. Uh, Regence knows me by my insurance card they gave me and they have the Medicare information. They bill Medicare not Legacy. If legacy bills anything to Medicare, Care Assist will pay zero. Hence, the instructions from Care Assist to NEVER give out the Medicare Card. I've never been asked to do this by any provider. If she asks me next time, the answer will be it burned in a fire. She was nice and polite. Trying to be helpful. But if I followed her insinstance that I provide this information I would be paying out of pocket what it paid in full without her having this information on file. I think she was trying to do her job nice and polite but I think she had no idea what she was talking about when it comes to Regence and Care Assist.
