This was my first visit to legacy cardiology & Dr Drood. From check-in to ekg technician to Dr Drood, the appointment was better than expected.

  Apr 13, 2023
The wait time in the waiting room was long. My appointment was at 9:30. Didn't get in the exam room till close to 10:00. Had to wait another 30 minutes or more to get the device check and see the doctor.

I thought Dr. Drood was very pleasant and knowledgeable, he listened carefully to my heart and lungs, and to what I was saying. In fact, he had a remarkable memory for my exact words (as evidenced by his summary I read later). I was very relieved that he didn't order any more tests to track down the cause of my chest pain, and agreed with me and the ER doctor that it was probably muscle strain.

Dr. Drood is a perfect Cardiologist in my eyes. He listens. He instructs. He is well informed on medications, the field of cardiology, and the inter-relationship between different illnesses/conditions. He will also gently confront me if I appear to be in denial. I always have the sense that he values me as a person as well as a patient. In my eyes he gets an A+++. His office staff is very knowledgeable and caring also. Example of this was one of the front office people walking with me across a sky bridge that triggered a phobia in me. I give this office my very highest praise!

Attentive, caring and concerned

  Dec 6, 2022
My appointment was at 12:45, I sat in the room for about an hour, alone. No one checked in with me, around 1:40 ish Drood finally came in, gave me a talk about everything I already knew from when my EKG was done.. Then after 2-3 minutes on being in the room he LEFT to speak to another doctor on the phone for 5 minutes. Came back in and we said our goodbyes. It felt like a complete waste of my time and a horrible way to treat a patient. I left forgotten in the exam room, just left there for an hour with zero reason why the wait was so long. Something that should of taken me 15 minutes ended up being and hour and a half. The receptionists were amazing, very kind. However I will not be seeing Drood again, maybe it's my age, but it doesn't feel he respects my words, time, or self the way he does the older patients.

Dr. Drood was very patient with me and answered all of my questions - even some outside his area of expertise. He is a good communicator and seems genuinely interested in the patient.

Quick wait timefriendly nurse for preliminaries.Dr. Was friendly, knowledgable and took the time to discuss potential cardio-pulmonary problems. My first visit to a cardiologist and yet he immediately put me at ease and discussed test results in terms I understood. A GREAT bedside manner.

  Jul 25, 2022
I was very impressed with Dr. Drood. I never felt rushed during the visit. He took time to address concerns that I expected him to dismiss as insignificant or unrelated to my chief complaint. He was very personable.

  Jul 5, 2022
I'm fortunate to have found such good doctors at this medical center. My care is consistent and I feel stable -

  Jun 23, 2022
Had my follow up appointment with the provider canceled and rescheduled 3 times before the actual visit. I found this unacceptable and poor care. Fortunately on the fourth try, all my questions and concerns were answered.

  Jun 22, 2022
Dr. Drood was friendly and listened well. He took my concerns seriously and helped me think through next steps. I am much more at ease with my concerns and think he is awesome. Grateful I was able to get in to see him. I am in good hands.
