Patient Rating

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

Dr Krishnasamy is an excellent doctor, but each of the last three appointments I've have with him have needed to be rescheduled due to him needing to attend meetings or oversee other responsibilities he has. He is often delayed (I'm sure with good reasons) when it's time for my appointments. My last visit with him was a good one.

30 minutes before seen in shaming 30 minutes before being seen and then told my time was up. Felt bad I couldn't complete what I wanted. Had an issue with my finger. Told me get a splint. Had to ask if over the counter and just if you can't bend come back in two weeks but I was out of time. I have this rash and wasn't able to go over that because I forgot because I was rush when he was late. I have always been a quick and easy going person but this time I had some question so maybe he seen me late because I am usually pretty fast. Did also go out to another patient quickly but still I had waited 30 minutes and the got rushed to leave.

My visit with Dr. K was outstanding. His knowledge and respect for his patients is so evident. I look forward to our follow-up visit on [date removed]. Also, I appreciated my time with Angie, Danielle and front office staff.

Dr. K is extremely thorough, exudes caring, uses research based up to date information for decision making, and listens extremely well. He is obviously in the right profession. I recommend him to everyone!

I am routinely rescheduled for appointments made months in advance. I feel like my provider doesn't listen to my specific concerns.

I was told that I had too many concerns for the amount of time my appointment allowed me to have. The dictar asked me to set up a different appointment next time so I can address my other issues at a later appointment. I had tried to get in with him previously but he was not available I had to see other doctors. I wanted to follow up with everything that I had issues with. I am thinking of changing care providers. I felt disappointed after I left my appointment.

I always look forward to seeing my provider because he's always up front with my health and provides important information as to how I can stay on track and even improve my health status.

I hired him to perform complete check up, refill my prescriptions, blood test and lab work, and eye doctor referrals. He did not do any of the above, instead he labeled me as bipolar that no any other healthcare professionals including psychologist and psychiatrist ever labeled me.

I really needed to see a Doctor that day and my regular provider didn't have any opening appointments so the receptionist asked if I would like to see him as he had an opening and I was happy to do so. I was very happy with my appointment and the Doctor took very good care of me.

Dr. Krishnasamy is a very skilled physician who is extremely knowledgeable on the latest research data. He is extremely attentive; he listens; he explains himself extremely well; and he provides excellent care. He is an outstanding physician, and Legacy is fortunate to have him.

A vast improvement over the first visit. He did not seemed so rushed and took time to explain and ask questions. He made me feel that I wasn't just a place in the appointment calendar. Not that I complaining about the my initial visit; the subsequent visit was just vastly more relaxed and he felt more accessible.

Dr. Krishnasamy went over the top during this process. I had an illness that needed extra testing and he was kind, thoughtful and took care of the issue and results sent to me with very little time notifications given to him before the date of the office visit. I really appreciate his patience, knowledge and his ability to access resources when applicable.
