From the lab to the nurse to the doctor I could not have gotten better care anywhere. The lady who took my blood was very friendly and was able to get it on the first stick and I hardly felt the needle. The nurse was very friendly and did her work well. Dr McKenzie is always friendly and takes whatever amount of time is needed. Listens and explains any concerns. I would most certainly recommend Legacy Heart clinic and staff as one of the best in the country.
