Great annual check-up! Dr Sammond recommended that I try Red Rice Yeast to lower cholesterol at my annual check-up last year. I added Red Rice Yeast to my diet for a full year and today I learned that my cholesterol improved greatly. Dr Sammond reported the findings from the blood test I had yesterday and said to keep up with diet and exercise. This was a terrific non drug therapy that really helped! I am very pleased.

Dr.Sammond responded immediately to a crisis situation that developed as a result of a questionable test result by The Portland Clinic prior to a colonoscopy scheduled for the following week which caused them to suspend my procedure. Thanks to Dr. Sammond's lightening-fast intervention, Legacy redid the tests and proved that the Portland Clinic's test result was flawed. She contacted the Gastroenterolgist and as a result the procedure will proceed as scheduled. I am profoundly grateful to Dr. Sammond!

This was only the second time I've seen dr sammond and it was a "physical" which was kind of a waste of time. I didn't know I had to have a separate appointment to discuss any health or meds issues. I was a bit frustrated.

I was unaware that now apparently patients are not allowed to discuss any health concerns during a routine exam. At the time of my exam I did have some other questions regarding my general health. However, since I am in good health I will not be making a separate appointment to discuss these. I would also appreciate my provider being able to give me her personal opinion on a subject that I ask her about rather than a standard answer that I might get from the internet or the media. Is this something that is not allowed? All the above being said, I am very satisfied with Legacy Health. I've never had to wait long to get an appointment and appreciate that when referred to another office, I get a call from that particular provider almost immediately. I've talked to several friends who have to wait weeks/months to get any kind of appointment. I appreciate that is not the case with Legacy.

Dr, Sammond is focused, patient oriented and engaging. She is aware of treatment provided by specialists in cardiology and urology. She always discusses how these specialists' courses of treatment integrate into her treatment plans as my primary care provider. I especially like that she has this very good overall awareness and understanding of all aspects of my medical care.I'm fortunate that she is my PCP.

The visit was very good. I resent that because I am on Medicare I can't make an appt thru your app. I have to question what u feel is wrong w Medicare patients that they r incapable of making appts on line. If they don't like using computers they r going to call anyway.

Ive seen Dr Sammond for over 20 yrs. She has always listened been attentive and given me the medical advise and care I needed. I totally trust her. I am very comfortable with her and appreciate her genuine caring nature. I recall a time, many years ago, when I had 4 teens at home and its was a very difficult time beginning my career. I was not doing well emotionally which took a toll on my overall health. She sat with me, eye to eye and listened. She prescribed medications that I needed. I am the type who took no meds, had natural childbirth and a strong person, who doesnt reach out. Especially make a dr appt. Yet, I complied and trusted her medical advice for me back then. It was the best advise and comfort to know, I can make an appt with any of my medical concerns at any time. Now I have 6 grandkids and own and operate my real estate brokerage. I see her once or twice a year. Ive had to buy private health ins. Costing my husband and I over $1460 a mo, and each year, ONLY stay in Legacy Group, because of Dr Sammond. I will stay until she retires. She has also seen some other family members and all speak highly of her, thought they have different medical ins. Now.
