This was our third visit. Doctor Joe is leaving the practice on December 2nd and I am very upset that he is going. He is a very bright and personable person. And very much an asset to the Legacy organization. So sad to lose him for us all.

LMG needs to find and hire additional outstanding physicians for this location. As my GP and one other GP are leaving the group you are understaffed. I don't see another GP at this location accepting new patients that I would be interested in visiting.

My provider gives me time to ask questions and discuss diabetes issues. Changing to 20 min appointments will not allow ample time to thoroughly discuss long term treatment plans and issues. That is why my provider is leaving and I will be following.

Very poor service at the lab. Orders not filed and had to go 3 times before the blood draw could be taken. Not doctors fault but the labs lack of attention. Very disorganized and with staff who don't speak English well.

I do not discuss my health issues with other family members or friends. I don't really think it is necessary to reveal my personal information, race issues and other personal information and based upon my years of being a patient with Legacy.

I have been dissatisfied in my attempts to find a new doctor that felt right for me. Dr. Amavisca feels right. I like his style and philosophy toward care. Coincidently, my son, who just moved back to the area, found and made an introductory appointment with Dr. Amavisca. After completing my appointment, I immediately called my son with my positive review.
