Every time she contacted the pharmacy about my meds, the pharmacy would immediately call & say I have 6 prescriptions ready for pick up. I told her twice not to call them, but..... very little time spent!!

I am extremely happy with my provider and I feel good about her care for me. She takes extreme care in what my needs are for my physical and mental health issues. My overall experience with Legacy Health since I switched from other heath groups I feel Legacy has been the best care and choice for me. With out Legacy Health I believe I would not be getting the proper care that I need today. Especially when living as a senior and on disability SSI. Legacy has helped me with need of food and also with mental health issues. Legacy shows nothing but compassion and kindness and with professionalism that to me shows how much Legacy Health really cares even the Hospital and Special dr's and Surgeons in my past history has the best care ever. I will never go back to Providence or OHSU poor past experience with those were not for me. Thank You Legacy for not only saving my life. But for also saving my Partners life several years ago. He almost died you saved his life I am forever grateful for that.

While Dr. Lowdermilk was great, the while experience for both my kids was terrible. We had recently switched to Dr. Lowdermilk as our new primary care physician, with the understanding that she was part of a children's clinic. This was incredibly confusing as we walked into the building and there was absolutely nothing to draw kids attention, help with wait time, nothing child oriented. We waited at least 15 minutes to be seen, as we went through the appointment it was clear that staff wasn't entirely ready. Certain materials took longer to find such as the audiology exam machine, it took a while to get the vaccines ready, and it seemed as if the eye exam was something new to the person helping us. All in all, from the time we started our appointment to the time we left was two hours! With nothing to help children to be comfortable, relaxed, feel safe in this environment. I have since learned that you guys are not part of the children's clinic, which is clear now, but very confusing. I would much prefer to be In a clinic that works directly with children and provides an environment of courtesy and friendliness and warmth to help the experience. Not to mention more timeliness. Again, Dr. Lowdermilk was great but the whole experience itself was not.

I enjoyed my time with the doctor. She took the time to discuss all my questions and was friendly and logical. I was surprised how limited the physical checks were. I am used to a physical being a thorough exam. Maybe that has changed due to covid.

I have a very unique name. I always love it when the receptionist takes the time to write down how you pronounce my name so the MA can pronounce it correctly and so can the doctor. My name is important to me and this extra effort makes me feel welcomed in a space, especially one that I am anxious about. I would also include pronouns to be come inclusive

I usually like seeing my provider she just seemed really invested in her own worries and bot really cared or put any info about mine .I did tell her I was having trouble sleeping all she recommended was tylenol pm which I told her I had tried in the past and has not worked and she didnt give me a soultion for ut. I was actually really disappointed this time with my meeting with her.

Even though I live quite far (a 2-hour drive)... I prefer this medical clinic over others I have been to in the past. My only issue would be is that my medical records from years ago from a different practice wasn't transferred to Legacy. I will be updating my doctor at my next visit with the past medical file I have kept.

I felt this provider presented the recommendations respectfully, listened to my concerns and was very respectful when I chose options that were NOT what she recommended. I was never pushed or made to feel less valid because I chose to refuse an invasive procedure due to concerns about risks associated with that procedure.

This was my first appointment with the Doctor and Legacy Medical Group. Most of time was spent discussing my medical history and my families medical history. Dr Lowdermilk seemed medically knowledgeable about my past ailments and agreed to do a physical after blood work is completed. Spent enough time to complete all that I expected.

My very first visit with this being my new doctor I thought would be a get to know each other but took less than 5mins and NO q's such as any questions such as anything concerning you, any health issues, etc. In my most recent visit and my second time seeing her I thought maybe I would get a diabetes foot exam since I didn't receive one my first visit but didn't. Seemed she just wanted me to move on. She was a little bit more inquisitive since I did complain about the shortness of our first introductory visit.

I am a brand new patient and this was my first visit t Legacy Med.Group.. So I was. Getting to know Dr Lowdermilk....I forgot to tell her that I have PAD and take Tumeric/Curcumin twice daily with Magnesium for it. I don't like medications and won't take them, except Atorvastatin 20mg daily as I inherited high cholesterol from my Father (I'm missing the biological enzyme that turns everything I eat into good cholesterol..it goes straight to bad! I watch my diet very carefully so that I can keep my cholesterol well below 200. No butter, cream, fats, sugar, red meat, cheese or anything that has high cholesterol..and I'm a label reader!!

We had the most amazing first appointment with Dr. Lowdermilk. She listened and was kind and engaging. She made my mom very comfortable. Now due to hearing loss and short term memory lose she doesn't remember what we covered in the appointment. I will need to send her daily emails to remind her of the topics already covered. Let her know physical therapy and a nurse will be coming to her place. Why she can't have a cortisone shot. Plus that Dr. Lowdermilk is looking into seeing if she should have the Covid vaccine.
