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

I consider myself to be extremely lucky to have Dr. Barlow as my primary care physician. Every time I visit Dr. Barlow I am certain that he is the best qualified professional to take care of my health and each time he tries with empathy to understand how I feel physically and emotionally. Dr. Barlow is very skilled in combining my history, recent evidence from my medical tests, his knowledge and intuition to provide a focused treatment. Additionally, during each visit he promotes healthy lifestyle changes that with time have been very beneficial to me. A respectful, empathetic, knowledgeable, skilled, and a very humane doctor. Besides Dr. Barlow, I am very pleased from my experience with his staff who treat me with kindness, respect for my privacy, and making sure I understand what needs to be done before, during and after each visit.

Dr. Barlow always demonstrates genuine concern and care and ensure he makes time to clearly address all questions I have. He's a great listener. He provides me with recommendations and solutions that are helpful and, if appropriate, refers me to other professionals you can assist me with special needs.

I felt that the medical assistant was too abrupt and didn't truly want to understand what I was talking about. I felt like she treated me like an old man who couldn't think. I am an old man, but I can still think clearly.

Dr. Barlow ordered an ultrasound for me, which I was able to undergo right away. However, the provider that performed the ultra sound did no send the results to Dr. Barlow. They have requested the results after I called their office.

Since Dr Barlow has joined the Legacy team, this is the first time I have not had to wait longer than 15 minutes, both in the waiting room and in the exam room. Very pleased. Was not looking forward to coming in due to past experience with waiting issues but waa quite surprised....thank you.

dr. Barlow, was going to try to get me in to have a mammogram that same day, because I've not had one in two years. Unfortunately, it didn't work out, but not because he didn't try; and I really appreciate his efforts on my behalf!

Dr visit is always good. The only negative is time between being seen and follow up with Dr's notes, recommendations or followup course of action. However, I am sure new protocols for Covid are somewhat responsible

Dr Barlow serves a very important role. He's ole school meaning he takes the time to create dr/patient relationships. The length of time in his office becomes more than just the numbers. He's been my doctor for 30 plus years. I would not choose to elect another doctor. Time is important BUT so are human needs.

I have one more test scheduled and suspect I will hear from the provider once that is done. I answered one of the questions above Never as I have only seen the provider once in the last 3 months (5 days ago) and have not yet heard from them about the test results.

I wanted to start taking Descovy or at least talk about it. Dr. Barlow just shut me down. He wouldn't prescribe it. He wouldn't discuss it really. He started talking about how I didn't want to live with deceit between me and my wife. I thought it was rather inappropriate. This is a highly personal matter and he passed judgement on me, not knowing any of the facts. I will be seeking a new primary care physician. He's a great doctor and we've have many great years together. But I've decided to seriously consider pursuing transitioning mtf and becoming a Trans woman. Clearly he won't be able to help me along this journey, which is unfortunate.

I was able to communicate chest pain and shortness of breath problem to Dr. Barlow via e-mail and phone. I was able to see him immediately. He did an ekg and arranged contact with a cardiologist and adjusted my medication. Dr. Barlow knows me very well and I am very comfortable with him and the care he provides.

Too busy! Dr. may not schedule enough time for appointments and falls behind schedule. Dr. seems to spend considerable time logging the details of the appointment and entering new prescriptions leaving patient waiting alone for 20 to 25 minutes before releasing to leave. Suggest electronic device to log details of the visit as visit progresses.
