No bad experiences. Ross was attentive to my concerns.

  Oct 12, 2023
Ross sent me to room 475? For blood work, when I got there they were a closed and on break and I was sent to 150? When I got there the check-in computer was not working and I told stand near the machine until someone arrive to repair it. At this point I left and went home. I will try again in the near future to get my blood work done,

The parking at Legacy Salmon creek is the worst. The parking stalls are so small even my compact car gets dinged by another vehicle. Those spaces need to change.

  Sep 7, 2023
Ross is a very good listener. I trust his judgment. When he talks to me, he's not entering stuff on the computer at the same time. It's always face-to-face. I like that. He is very quick on the computer so that gives us time to talk.

  Sep 5, 2023
Ross is always willing to listen to my concerns and treats me with respect

  Aug 23, 2023
Everything was fine .

I believe your facility lacks good patient practice. I have been with Legacy since I moved here 4 years ago. Medical facility in Idaho St Luke's after my yearly exam and conference always set up an appt f0llow up for the next year at that time for exams and reviews. Legacy lacks that personal care with patients. I am strongly considering going elsewhere at this time.

Ross does a great job of making the patient feel very comfortable in talking to. He listens well and is very personable. He also knows his subject matter and is very professional.

Ross was thorough and wonderful. 10/10

  Mar 13, 2023
This was an introductory meeting with the provider. As a nurse practitioner, his authority to make decisions about my care is somewhat different from what I am used to with an MD. I was learning about those differences and could have used a more direct explanation. I anticipate we will learn how to communicate well with each other.

  Mar 8, 2023
I feel very fortunate to have Ross Puterbaugh for my health care. He is thorough, patient and really informative. I don't have occasion to see him more than my annual check up but if I do need help he has always taken care for me without making me feel like I am a bother to him. I can say I am very glad I have someone like Ross for my medical needs.

  Mar 6, 2023
The kiosk at your lab department leaves a lot to be desired for those who don't like computers or don't have one

  Mar 3, 2023

Receptionists talked very loud

  Feb 27, 2023
Hit the important facts and asked for any questions or concerns I might have.

  Feb 21, 2023
Staff is always very friendly. During the appointment I can always get straight to the point and get some/most answers by the time I leave.

  Feb 10, 2023
Pleasant - but not enough time to get to core issues or concerns.

  Feb 7, 2023

  Jan 5, 2023
He is always concerned about me and what went wrong.

  Jan 3, 2023
Ross was very attentive to the concerns of mine and my wife's . From the knee pain to my gait and daily activities. He has requested PT to assist in these areas.

  Dec 30, 2022
Ross always acts like you are the only thing on his mind when you are there, never rushing, always listening. He is confident and helpful. As an older woman I find my concerns are not taken seriously by some other providers, so I appreciate that Ross always takes me seriously and finds the help I need.

  Dec 28, 2022
I feel medically gaslighted every appointment. Each appointment I get the same answer "it doesn't make medical sense, you need to see mental health". Im not very comfortable returning. I mean I had a "cold" a few days prior to going to emergency with pneumonia and heart failure. I don't feel like I can be honest with how I feel and feel insulted every time I leave the office.

  Dec 15, 2022
Your practice is close to my home, and seems to mee my current needs.

  Dec 14, 2022
Nurse cleaning my ear got water all over me.

  Dec 9, 2022
I did not feel that my provider was listening to me. While I was talking he kept saying "uhhuh" and "okay". When I completed what I was say he went on for several more seconds saying the same- as though I was still talking. This made me feel like he wasn't really interested in hearing my report of workplace hostility that had triggered severe terror. He offered to send in a social worker which I accepted. My provider lacked any sort of warmth or kindness, he was cold and abrupt. Left me sorry I reached out for help.

  Dec 7, 2022
With this visit, the provider only spent a couple minutes with me. He checked my ears and little else. He did not provide any remedies, holistic or prescription except for me to keep doing what I was doing. I am in more pain today than yesterday and don't feel that he spent enough time with me to give a clear diagnosis. I understand the medical field is overwhelmed right now. It just wasn't the level of care I am used to Dr. Puterbaugh providing.

  Dec 6, 2022
Ross Puterbaugh is great PA.His staff is too. I great great care. I recommend him to others.
