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

As I have said before - I would like my clothes that I'm wearing when entering this hospital, hung up - instead of tossed in a plastic bag. Shoes in all.

I think the doctor should have expressed an interest in the results of the referral to a neurologist she made for me during my last visit seven months ago, and talked with me more about that issue.

Dr. McKay is one of the best physicians I have dealt with during my entire diabetes journey. She explains different issues and makes excellent suggestions. Very good communication, follow up with test results, easy to talk to. An absolute pleasure to work with. Her office staff and medical assistants are likewise helpful and actually care about my concerns and questions, especially in the area of medication questions. Great help and assist with a recent change with insurance coverage and mail order prescriptions- a real advocate for my health and medication issues. I look forward to many more years of outstanding support from the whole team, and I appreciate the level of professionalism.

I have been seeing Dr. McKay for several years. She treated my mother also. Sadly my mother passed away last year, but I will continued to see Dr. McKay as she treated my mother with such respect and was so caring towards her. Yesterday was the first time I saw Dr. McKay since my mother passed and she was kind to speak to me in regards to my Mom. When my Mother passed away I sent an email to Dr. McKay and she immediately called me to tell me how sorry she was of her passing. When I see Dr. McKay I feel that she actually listens to me and doesn't just excuse me. I enjoy seeing her!

Experience exceeds expectations. Dr. McKay seemed to understand early in out relationship that I crave factual details about the what, why and options about my symptoms, conditions, prescriptions etc. And she provides it in a way that's easy to understand. I have a lot of confidence in her and recommend her to friends and family.
