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

provider highly recommend "Legacy Office in St Helens" NOhard time scheduling appt was I am an established patient my provider recently left and was told I could not be seen same with any provider until my new to you visit was done with a new provider of my choosing. my daughter had the same issue. if I am calling for a sick visit I should not have to wait until next month to be seen with a new provider to re establish care. MANAGEMENT at this office is the worst!

we have been to the ED and then to unity health and ohsu clinic, this is the first doctor who gave us some answers and help, she was so kind but a straight shooter and it's hard to find someone like her!

From the phone call to make appt to checking in and completing needed forms, front desk person was friendly and helpful, was greeted upon entering the office. Never felt like I was a "bother". Margaret Baker was just wonderful, very approachable, listened attentively, addressed all questions, got the routine tests I needed. Was able to get labs done and even a mammogram all the same day!! Overall, very pleased with care received at Legacy. Was overdue for routine care and it was delivered. Thank you.

This Dr. is very different than I'm used to. I don't relate to her well.

This was my initial visit with Margaret Baker. That's why there was no previous contact in the past 3 months. She was able to answer my questions and help me with a plan for the future.

Establishing care with Margaret has put my mind around ease. I've avoided medical care for almost 10 years because I was discouraged at the run around, being blown off and lack of resolutions. I am happy to say, after yesterday's appointment, I have peace of mind and a plan. Thank you to Margaret and everyone from check-in to check-out.

Margaret showed compassion and concern on our 1st visit & ordered a treatment that my previous providers would not. I showed significant improvement. There was absolutely no follow up from that point forward. After 3 month my symptoms were returning and she refused to repeat the treatment which has kept me in continuous pain & low energy. She is a very stubborn & opinionated woman and shows no concern for how my body response she only cared about the normal curve for my symptoms. Does this clinic not allow a patient to change primary care providers. I made an apt. with Lisa Jones and was refused. She talked with Margret & refused to take me as a pt. I will never use the legacy St. Helens Clinic again.

only thing that I don't like about it is the fact that I have to come back to get labs done because they close at 5. it's really inconvenient for me when I can only do appointments later in the day because I have a kid. now I have to take time out of my day next week to come in.

Dr. Baker's approach is appealing to me in that she said up front that she likes to explore alternatives to prescribing medication. She also said that she will present options and the pros and cons and let me choose the course of action. She was confident, yet exhibited humility and willingness to consult with other medical professionals if needed. She was likeable from the moment she entered the examining room.

I have not had a really good PCP at my Legacy Clinic until Margaret Baker! I am so pleased with her. She is so easy to talk to, and she really cares about me and my health.

I love working with Margaret Baker! She is always attentive and friendly! I'm so glad I have found a Dr/NP that I am this comfortable with. I feel like she takes a genuine interest in my health issues, she even looked at the incision from my recent revision of my knee replacement surgery, and explained how to take the tape off and when. She treats me very respectfully and I find it easy to converse with her. She is my favorite Dr I have found at the Legacy St Helens location.

My mother has dementia & our regular dr. was out of office. Margaret Baker was very patient & was sincere in her interest with mom. I would definitely see her again.

I sought establishing a new doctor as my previous one no longer works at the Legacy location near me, and I was very impressed with the referral made to me. I'm glad to now have Dr. Baker as my new general practitioner.

The experience was as good as could be expected, they kindly worked with us on finance because we can't afford insurance.
