Legacy wants every patient to have great care, every time. To help measure and improve patient satisfaction, we send surveys to randomly selected patients after their appointments. We use this feedback from the surveys to improve and enhance the care we offer. It works like this: Real patients give us feedback through Press Ganey, a patient satisfaction survey company. They verify and confirm the results. National Research Corporation, an independent company, provides the technology to show the ratings and comments on our website

Although there was almost a 3 week wait, this doctor gave me clear information, followed up w/MRI of shoulder and gave me a clear report with options - I felt greatly relieved and decided to keep on like I have been - No surgery or drugs - We agreed if my arm hurt bad enough that I wanted to have it cut off I would contact her -

Provider is very knowledgeable and I have confidence in her surgical expertise. However it has been extremely difficult to communicate with her staff. And getting information in order to prepare for my surgery has been impossible. In my opinion it has been much harder than necessary to schedule bmy surgery. And there's been no concern about my extreme pain and the effect it is causing to my mental and physical health.

I was told OT would be ordered for me in follow up. 2+ weeks no one has called me. I called the Legacy OT. They told me the order needed to be faxed to them - even though I can see it a part of the plan in MyChart.

I sought out an appointment with Dr. Thomas based on her sterling reputation. My visit was beyond what I expected. I was surprised by my diagnosis, and she took the time to answer all of my questions. I was inspired by her confidence and knowledge, and know that I am in good hands going forward.

My race is Mexican... MS Thomas is a true professional. She exceeded her cause to get at root of my injury. She was also concerned with my knees and walking. Even though its not her responsibility. Great advice.. She is what health professionals should be. Thank you Dr. Thomas

I came to Dr. Thomas for a 2nd opinion. The open honesty in her explanations have helped me in making a decision for the next step in my health care. Since it is considered elective surgery, with pandemic, I will have to wait.
