The doctor prefers I see him every 4 months. When I do, we only talk about my health, medication, etc. Though he has been my primary care physician, he's never examined me. If I note a problem, I'm sent to a specialist. He's very nice, but I kind of feel like another box to check on his patient list.

In the past Dr. Krishnasamy was more patient. This time he seemed in a hurry. Maybe because time allotted for the visit was short.

Dr. K is usually attentive. However, this visit, I felt he did not listen to my concerns and was dismissive of my TROUBLE with new treatment (CPAP).

This visit reminded me that I need a PCP that I feel comfortable discussing all aspects of my health. I was not comfortable and was actually getting upset discussing certain aspects of my health.

Dr K takes the time to listen and takes copious notes. Once my lab work is posted he follows up with me immediately. Great teamwork and customer care. Thank you!

The medical team is always very courteous and informs me of reasons for procedures, medications, and health conditions. I am given choice and listened to as well. Legacy Medical Group has been the best provider I have ever experienced.

I like Dr. K and I think he is looking out for me and my health. My only complaint is that sometimes he speeds through things and doesn't give me a full chance to really speak my mind. It's not that he has bad intentions, I just would prefer to have him not be so speedy and give me more time to express everything.

The reception desk paperwork and instructions for the annual medicare visit are complex and difficult to understand and the reception staff are of little help, and seem put off by questions. I'm treated better by minimum wage fast food employees,

I finished my checkup and went back out to wait to be called for my blood draw. After 15 minutes I asked the front desk had they forgot about me; they said I had to go to the hospital. I found out later that I had to make an online appointment. Someone should have told me about the change in policy, I wasted valuable time off from work

I appreciate his willingness to respect my personal choice about the COVID vaccine. We don't agree on it but he is respectful about it. This is a big deal to me.

Wasn't sure when the ordering of the blood work was done. It was on order and I went on [date removed] to get the blood work done. It was forwarded to me on the internet and Dr. K then sent word through the process the results to the testing. It was done in a short time period. Very nice job on the lab and with Dr. K.
