Your phone system is very bad.You need to make significant changes in both phone answering and phone followup., Of all the shortcomings of your system the phone answering and followup is by far the worse I have ever experienced

The MA made a judgement Al remark based on her opinion not medical information. This was unprofessional and it took me by surprise. I didn't respond.

Nurse was rather rude and somewhat vague regarding blood pressure.

  Sep 11, 2023
I was being worked in and was able to get in before my actual time. I did not wait in the room long. I was listened to and the appropriate attention was given. My history is complicated and I love that Dr. Lowder knows my history and my family history. I woudn't go anywhere else.

The staff and Dr. Lowder are outstanding!

Front desk tied up on phones, which delayed check in. I quite certain the MA did my blood pressure wrong. My reading was very low, which is unusual for me, and the cuff was falling down my arm. She even agreed it seemed low but did not re-take. Also, she couldn't pronounce any of my meds, some of which are pretty common.

Everything during my time in the clinic was perfect. I left feeling well informed and cared for.

Very difficult to get into legacy health online services. Too many verification, code Etcwas needed to get into my my E chart lab report. So I finally gave up to try more. Is there any easier way to be able to get into E charts for me to review the results? At my old age, it's very difficult to do everything I am asked to even get to see my lab results or to communicate with my health care professionals!

It doesn't matter if I recommend or not if you are not taking new patients and it literally takes months to get an appointment.

I always enjoy seeing Dr Lowder, he's a very nice and polite man and a pleasure to talk with. Even when I'm not feeling my best! Really couldn't ask for a better Doctor nor have I ever had a better doctor either! I would hate to ever need to switch doctors on a permanent basis! With that being said though, any doctor I have had any contact with at Legacy has always been the very best

  Apr 26, 2023

It is not a Federal mandate to wear masks. It should be an option for individuals to wear or not when visiting. Stop the mandate!
