This was my first visit to Dr Borden as a New Patient. I selected Dr Borden after researching Doctors at Legacy and found him to be an excellent Doctor based on my dealings with him and the recommendations from reviews and direct reviews from others. as a new person to [location removed] I found Dr Borden had an excellent bedside manner and he did not have my records because my Dr in [location removed] still had not sent them to him after my request some months earlier.

I was called to the back before I finished with the receptionist so NO wait time! Doctor's assistant was very professional and pleasant. Dr Borden does not seem rushed during my visit. Professional and explains things thoroughly. Orders tests etc. where I live. I do not prefer a virtual visit.

Dr. Borden & his Staff greeted me with respect and courtesy. You could tell truly cared about me and what I am going through. Dr. Borden was completely thorough in his questioning me about what was going on and how he could help. He ordered my prescriptions for me as I'm probably going to be transferring up to this area and I wanted to get established with a new Physician as soon as possible. I'm truly blessed that I was matched with Dr. Borden and his Staff!

The office visit was great! I received a call from one of the medical staff members that is with Dr. Borden's team, I felt as if she did not understand the information about COVID-19. The reason is she told me that because I have been fully vacanited for COVID-19, I can not get COVID-19. Thank you

Able to get an appt quickly and had a person to person with Dr Borden. He addressed my concerns and advised in a personal down to earth manner that made me feel that he was aware of my medical history and what course of action i should follow. Over the Years as a patient at Legacy Medical Clinic all my experiences have been very good.

I like this provider, but he doesn't seem as on top of my history as my former (retired early) doctor. Something that is inconvenient is that this clinic does not draw blood for lab work. One has to make an appointment with a nearby lab to get the tests ordered by this office. Other clinics will go ahead and draw the blood right then and there. While I was able to get an appointment the same day, it takes significantly more time than if it could be drawn during the exam.

I was feeling ill; called in to schedule an appt asap; they were able to get me in that same day. Nice! Made me feel important. Dr. Borden was very reassuring. He took the panic out of my anxiety, explained my condition in a very straightforward manner. Recommended follow-up procedures. I did those as he asked. I'm feeling much better. He called a few days later asking how I was. He mentioned that if I start to feel ill to call immediately and that he's looking into other areas that might be of concern. Overall, a very satisfying visit.

I found it irritating that I was screened and then the clerk at the front desk asked me the same questions even though I had a paper and they can see the screening. Then the medical assistant asked the questions the third time.

DR BORDEN IS A PLEASURE TO WORK WITH. I FIND THE PORTAL "MY HEALTH" USEFUL BUT I FIND THE QUESTIONERS REPETITIVE AND CLUMSY. I AM CONCERNED THAT PERHAPS THE TESTS AND RESULTS OF REFERRED VISITS ARE NOT BEING SENT IN TO MY FILE. THAT IS PROBABLY MY FAULT TO SOME EXTENT.

This doesn't relate to Dr. Borden. I was surprised that the thermometer used upon arrival was not no-contact. The person at the entry swiped my forehead numerous times and finally had to use a conventional digital thermometer. I was a little disconcerted that I was give an OHSU survey to complete and a Legacy form. it seems like handling paperwork should be minimized.

This doesn't have anything to do with Dr Borden, but I had to wait on hold 15 minutes to get an appointment with the Good Samaritan lab to schedule my follow up lab work. Not sure why that couldn't have been a little easier.
