No problem All went well

I've seen Dr. Drood before and this time he was running behind, very curt in his responses and generally not as pleasant as the other times I have seen him.

Explained everything in layman's terms and very caring.

Best cardiologist I have seen. Extremely interested in me and asked me pertinent questions. I am so happy that he is my cardiologist

  Nov 27, 2023
I had to ask about the lab work that I had done. I wasn't informed about the change of the lab. You are now using Lab Corp and I had concerns about whether or not my insurance would cover the cost.In addition I think it is rediculous that you don't have endocrinologists at this medical facility and that it's a very long wait to get an appointment to see my cardiologist. It's hard to imagine that my health is important.

I just moved to this provider since my hospital stay. Dr Drood was my Cardiologist in the hospital and I really liked the way he listened and answered questions for me. This was our first office visit since that time and I am still impressed. Dr Drood is a very hands-on involved doctor. He did the ICD interrogation himself and made comments and assessments on the spot instead of me having to wait to read it in Legacy My Health app. He answered all of my and my wife's questions. Was very patient and never made me feel rushed or like he had somewhere else to be.

Great experiences and dr. Drood is great and very considerate.

  Nov 15, 2023
Physician was very thorough, clear and I did not feel like just another patient. He helped me repeat the go over the list of things he would do and I needed to do so I wouldn't forget. My first time seeing him. I was very impressed and am very confident in his future care of me.

Have had the pleasure of coming to Legacy Cardiology, from the moment you walk in to check in you feel very at ease. The professionalism and care from the nursing staff is great, and the Drs' are outstanding. I know I am under expert cardio care and am so grateful. Wile being monitored yearly, I am also expertly guided on how to stay on the path of good heart health, without feeling like I am being lectured or chastised. So very blessed being under this provider's care.

Explained my health issues extremely well

  Oct 13, 2023
Dr. Drood is exceptional in both his knowledge, organization, and kindness towards his patients. He treat you like a family member. The receptionist today was not like any other has been in that office: Curt, difficult to understand it would not speak up when asked. It was like dealing with a robot and not very well programmed robot.

  Sep 5, 2023
Dr was very pleasant and a great listener. He seemed genuinely concerned about [name removed] health and concerns. He answered all our questions.

  Aug 25, 2023
I was confused why I would need an EKG when I had a stress echo in the last few months. It feels like it was unnecessary.

  Aug 22, 2023
Everyone was very nice and very professional

  Aug 10, 2023
Doc is very busy takes awhile to get appointment . Though no fault of doc's. If it was an emergency I am sure I would be taken care of .

  Aug 9, 2023
Dr. Drood is always looking for the answer to the problem. He explains what he's thinking and why so that you can follow his reasoning, which establishes confidence in his decisions and promotes trust. He doesn't doctor at you he doctors with you, and that's rare nowadays.

This was a first visit/establish new patient/transfer from out of the area. Although I initially had difficulty getting the process started, it has since been a smooth transition.

  Jul 26, 2023
It took 4 months to get in to the office after I made the initial appointment. I was on my way to the office when the appointment was cancelled because the doctor that I had the appointment with did not treat my condition. I finally got my appointment and after meeting Dr. Drood I am very happy that I now have a cardiologist.

  Jul 21, 2023
Same day visit with provider (new to me) through proactive thoughtful help by Nurse Christine to get my urgent health issue addressed was very much appreciated

  Jun 27, 2023
Doc asked good questions, took notes and ordered a test.

  Jun 26, 2023
Dr. Drood is always thorough and pleasant during our appointments.
