Excellent new patient interview. This was my first visit.I was very comfortable sharing info with her as she seemed to know my issues and was prepared to ask the appropriate questions and knew what lab work was needed based on history. I am sorry to see her leave.

Very good manner, amicable and attentive. Not "standoffish" like some. You really knew you had a friend taking care of you. She is moving to another facility next month. Too far away to continue to see her. She will be truly missed, and I wish her well. I bid that she stay "safe and well" A true friend.

Margaret Baker is the best provider I have had the pleasure of meeting. She is a PN but I trust the information and advise as if she was a Dr, she is the easiest person to talk to and discuss what's going on with my health issues. She doesn't have to be looking at me to make me feel heard. She can type on her computer making notes and still keep up with my conversation about what's going on with me!! I love that I feel like she hears me and understands me. It took me about 7 years to find a Dr I feel this confident in. I hope she never leaves Legacy, I would be so devastated!!!

This was my first visit to get established with a new doctor as she came highly recommended--I was not disappointed even though she is a NP and not a DR. She reiterated she gives her patents time and to call anytime as needed. Very personable and knowledgeable.

She spent a lot of time with me. Although l wasn't able to get what l ultimately wanted, a leave of absence from work with short term disability due to multiple Issues, she explained why. And when l asked for a note to get the rest of the week off, it was provided. I really needed it. I really like Margaret as my provider.

The provider was able to see me but is not my usual provider. I had to tell her important information 3 or 4 times. Info like my [removed for privacy] She also didn't seem to understand my questions, nor I her responses. In the end, I didn't feel heard and just wanted to get out of there. I had been there over an hour!

Dr Margaret Baker is the perfect MA for me! She knows what she's doing and always ask me questions and answers mine. I trust her and her advice. I would and do recommend her to others. She is easy to understand and I'm able to talk to her about anything without worrying that I'm being judged. I'm not embarrassed to talk about any ailment and ask a lot of questions to make sure I totally understand the what's and why does of my care. She is the absolute best Dr I've had.

I came to Dr. Baker a new patient as my regular Dr left. I travel to Legacy St. Helen's from the coast because I always get the best service and care here (we lived here for 25 years). Although I am not a fan of the north coast services they are okay for emergencies I just love the atmosphere at Legacy St. Helens.

I did not feel rushed, Margaret took the time to explain the entire PAP test process. No one has ever done that so thoroughly before. She was personable & l felt very at ease with her. I'm new to the area and needed a primary care provider, I'm glad I found her and hope she will be for a long time.

This was my new patient appointment. Very first visit. I have medical condition that need monthly care. I never got the chance to tell her what was going on with me now . How bad my ears hurt. And how swollen I am. We never got past my meds, list. I was coming from a different county in Oregon where I was forever hoping to continue my same care. I was told I can't have my pain contract back be she doesn't like them. I didn't get any of my other medications that I need. I did walk out upset. I do have bad anxiety and PTSD. This was a hard appointment to do. I gave up a therapy appointment to be there. The person I saw even go what I did tell her wrong in my after visit report. I can't see someone who doesn't take my health, mental health or physical health seriously. I was never asked by her to take a drug test. I would have. I have never not one violated my contact. I did call back in and apologize for walk out and to see about changing to a different person. I have not heard anything back yet. Thank you for your time.

I find it is awful that legacy clinic's receptionist do not accommodate hard of hearing or deaf people. Take off the MASK for lip readers.
