    Your staff were very efficient at my latest visit.
  • 06/21/22
    The new electronic check-in process was a bit frustrating. Especially when I'd completed the check-in I was given ads for Medicare Advantage and a survey to complete. If the check-in process is to be successful, it should just be a quick check-in without added stuff for me to go through.
  • 07/19/22
    Every aspect of your staffing is fantastic. Even your volunteers do an excellent job. Thank you to all of you.

    My doctor is Dr. Tarantolo at Legacy in Omaha. I'm very pleased that I can get most of my injections at the Fremont office. The Receptionist here is very friendly, always glad to see me. And there are three wonderful ladies in the treatment room who are always interested in how things are going and just very nice people. Mostly talk about life outside of this.

    There are days where parking has become an issue at the Legacy location. I've had to wait in the parking lot for someone to leave in order to get a spot.

    Ever since I have been under Dr. Tarantolo's care, I have my blood pulled every six months. Each time I have it pulled at Methodist Eastabrook, there have been delays due to unknown tests ordered that didn't come through NCS to Cerner correctly. I have had to wait as long as an hour as they sorted out the tests with Dr. Tarantolo's office. There were further delays as the phlebotomist figured out which tubes to use for these miscellaneous tests. This time I called ahead and the NCS nurse worked it through with Methodist and it was a total breeze -- back on the road in 20 minutes. Thanks for the help!

    Physicians Assistant Nurse, Rachel was excellent in determining issues I was having and getting CtScan of my lungs while I was there. Getting it done and prescribing antibiotic.
  • 10/19/22
    From walking into bldg there was immediate assistance since this was our first visit. Very professional and helpful sign in lady who works under Dr. Tarantolo who checked us in and who took care of scheduling our upcoming apts. Also “Noel” who was very professional and sweet with checking his BP, height/weight, etc and taking us to room to see Dr.T. Our meeting with Dr Tarantolo was very calming, as he explained everything and spent time with us which meant a lot. I have heard many many many wonderful words about him and we are so blessed to have him as Ray’s doctor.

    Dr. Tarantolo is very conscientious in his efforts to prevent a clot recurrence. When I called the office with a positive test, the staff quickly told me they would take over the entire management of my covid, not just the clotting disorder issue. That is very helpful in complex situations, to know "who is on first." I have picked up my meds and have started on them. Thanks everyone.
  • 08/24/22
    Your people top to bottom are spectacular!
  • 08/31/22
    I feel so comfortable at any location. Probably because the staff works at all locations as they follow their assigned doctors. It is always nice to see familiar staff that have helped me prepare for a doctor or infusion visit.
