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 like my provider and her nurse. I think they're both knowledgeable and caring. I think the office as a whole is professional.

I was fortunate to be seen on the same day I called for an appointment. However, when I was being seen by the doctor, as I was trying to explain my symptoms (of which there were several) the doctor kept cutting me off and telling me that she could only treat one thing during this visit. This was problematic for me in that I was trying to explain the several problems I was having so that she would have the best information I could provide, so that she could do her job well and treat me the best she could. She just kept repeating that my other problems would have to wait until I saw my primary care physician. It was a bit surreal actually. It's as if she didn't understand that I had a bigger picture health problem than just the first item on the list. I felt that there was a relationship between the one line item that she did help me with, and the other couple of significant symptoms I was having. One of which was actually the reason I made the appointment. I just didn't prioritize it when I called in to make the appointment, but she was fixated on the first thing I mentioned to scheduling and I couldn't get her to try to see the bigger picture. I really want to stay with my primary care doctor, Robert Barlow, who just recently joined your ranks. That's why I came to this new location. But I'm not too sure I'll be going back. I probably will, to see Dr. Barlow and to see if he can do his job unfettered by something like scheduling. But I was very disappointed. When I got home, I was thinking to myself, 'Well, I guess I need to see someone else about this problem I'm having'. Which is a really odd thought to have moments after seeing a doctor.

I have seen Dr. Mahmoud's medical assistant twice. Both times she seemed to have a "I know better than you" attitude. She actually told me that it was terrible to need assistance in putting on my socks. I have used an assistive device since I had a spinal fusion. Despite the fact that she believes that she knows it all, she took my blood pressure incorrectly. I am a former nursing professor. I find working with her very unpleasant. I have never experienced this at Westside Internal Medicine before.

I have seen Dr. Mahmoud twice for annual physicals. She is VERY thorough with the exception that she does not have me disrobe. I am not used to having a physical with my cloths on. I feel my assessment isn't complete without seeing my feet, legs, back and arms.

My experience with Dr Mahmoud was very good. I feel like she listens to you and answers any questions you may have. She never makes you feel like a question might be unimportant, but instead understands your questions are important to you and she answers them with care and consideration. She is very kind and compassionate. I feel very well taken care of with her!

The computers were down, but Dr. Mahmoud was able to make it an efficient annual exam. She wrote down everything to put in the chart later and all my questions were answered. Considering the circumstances, I was very pleased with my appointment, she is warm and engaging and listens well.

I waited quite awhile to see the Dr. but may have been expected at 3:30 instead of 3:00. Have health issues right now exacerbated by my husband's very recent death. Not sure how much should be attributed to that as far as my own health issues go.

It is VERY difficult to reach the office to by phone. It is ALwAYS answered by the answering service, I always have to wait on hold for along time or leave a message for a return call and I am on the phone so much it is difficult for them to call me when I am available. When I attempt to call the office back after they have returned my call I again get the answering service and have to wait a long time. I am searching for a different provider because this is so frustrating

This was a new provider for me. They had just moved in to new office space - so considering workman on sight, new equipment & new surroundings - they were all awesome.

I want to give this Dr. a chance to know me. I was assigned to her after my previous doctor moved. I do not feel she is familiar with my records or health history, often repeating the same questions. she does not seem to trust or respect me. I certainly wish our rapport was better. As a result, I pray my health requires no sudden attention, because I don't think she will be a good advocate or provide good care. I currently feel stuck with someone I would not choose , but wa told there is a shortage of practicing drs that I can be referred to as Dr Murphyhad a large following and basicallyran out of referrals. I will continue going , but doubt this will change and will try to seek a better fit for me.

It was my first annual healthcheck with Fethiya and she was very professional and carying. listenned very carefully and answered all of my questions. she also followed up with me after the visit with lab results and additional information. Very pleased and grateful to have her as my PCP.

My experience was very good. Dr. Mahmoud and her assistant spent a lot of time with me and were very thorough and nice. One thing I have noticed is that Dr. Mahmoud sets up blood tests for you at the lab, but does not set up an appointment for you. This is not a big deal but my previous physician set up an appt.

Pleased with thorough review of medical history, medications, immunizations, and routine exams. Dr. Mahmoud answered all my questions about old and new issues and ordered further testing as needed. She also gave referrals as indicated by my issues. Received call with results of x-rays within 24 hours. Have not received results of blood work as of 24 hours post appointment. Everyone I interacted with in the office was prompt, pleasant, efficient, and knowledgeable. It was a satisfying wellness checkup.

Though yesterday was my first experience with Dr. Mahmoud she was so professional and actually took the time to look over my medical chart before seeing me, a rarity to find it seems. She and I discussed ways to improve my treatment plan for athsma as well as addressing some other concerns I had about my overall health. The two things that impresed me the most was the amount of time she spend with me, which was longer than any doctor's visit I have had before and didn't feel rushed at all, and also the fact that she listened to what I said. I feel so lucky to have found her as a provider.

I needed to get in quickly to see about solving the mystery of a 'condition' I was seen for last September. Dr. M. was very thorough in her questions and suggestions in moving forward to find a solution to the problem. She got me in for the blood draw immediately, saving another trip into St. V's. She outlined a 3-part step so I will follow-through with part II and see how that helps.

I was disappointed that instead of a total exam when you call for a yearly check up you get a well check exam which does not include listening to your heart, lungs, looking in your ears checking your stomach and breasts. I know it is not the Drs. idea but I felt that if I only go to the Dr. once a year I want to have everything checked

Firstly, I want to clarify answer to question re: medication review. I see Dr. Mahmoud on a six month schedule (not 3 month), during which time we always review my meds.I feel very lucky to have Dr. Mahmoud as my primary care physician. She is very knowledgeable, caring, and thorough. She gets everything covered without making our time together feel rushed in any way. Her quiet strength and kindness make me feel safe in her care.

Apparently the dr did not not my up todate records due to a switch to Legacy. She did not really listen to me. She talked about an immunization and I said I believe I already had it. She then left for 24 minutes apparently to track down my records. She was not really very personable and did not listen to my concerns. I will be looking for a different primary care DR

This was my first visit with this Dr so the 8 rating was only due to that. So far she seems very good and I felt she listened to what I had to say and was very thorough.

my insurance is Providence and I was surprised when I was told I would have to get my blood work done at a Providence facility. I wasn't aware of this and is an an inconvenience. When open enrollment comes, I will probably chang to a clinic where I can have my labs done in house. I feel this should have been communicated to me when the clinic switched to a Legacy group.

I'm not impressed with Dr. Mahmoud. [name deleted to protect privacy] Dr. Mahmoud [comment deleted to protect privacy] and seems uninterested in her patients, and somewhat dismissive. I am switching to another doctor in the Legacy group. The clinic staff at the St Vincent office is, however, fantastic! The scheduler Michelle is a dream; the gal who draws blood is wonderful. Dr Mahmoud, however, is a huge disappointment.

Ms. Mahmoud was good, there seemed to be a new receptionist and she was great also, trying hard. It seemed that the others needed to be kinder to her. Helen the medical aid was good as was the woman who drew my blood for testing. The only thing is I wanted my results in writing with an interpertation like Dr. Murphy did previously and I haven't received that yet, maybe it is on its way.
