once he knew he was leaving to treat only those who can afford his new exclusive corporate group...he became very indifferent to my issues of pain and mobility... over 2 years of "exercise and work thru the pain"...i'm left with a bad limp , can can no longer work full time..and struggle to remain on my feet desite the pain.
My husband and I were with Dr. Legare for around 10 years until he decided to charge $1800 a year extra just to see him. We were outraged. He said it was to limit the amount of patients he sees. Why can't a doctor just say no more patients. Why did he have to charge an additional $1800 to what he's already getting paid. ABSOLUTELY UPSETTING.
I've been seeing Dr. Legare (who has me call him Ned...no pretense with this guy) and I've always been happy. He's personable, knowledgeable, thorough, and experienced. His staff can be a bit curt, but that's because they're efficient, no nonsense people.
Dr. Legare is truly one of the top in his profession. He is knowledgeable, helpful, and always available to answer questions. I have e-mailed him and received a response within 24 hours (that doesn't happen with other doctors). Everything that was said in the other posts are absolutely true. Dr. Legare should teach a lesson to all doctors on bedside manner.
Dr. Legare always takes time to ask questions and understand his patients. The difference is he gunuinely cares. He makes sure I understand eveything he's doing as well. Dr. Ned has a great bedside manner and even when there's a problem I always feel comfortable knowing I'm in his hands.
Dr. Legare is one of the most knowlegeable, caring physicians in Massachusetts. He is sensitive to his patients need on an INDIVIDUAL basis. Dr. Legare is well thought of by his colleagues, patients and administrative staff. His dedication to patients is above and beyond. I know is recognized for his abilities in Town and Country Magazine every year. Unfortunately, so many people want to see him, but his panel is closed at present. I am fortunate that I have been a long term patient of his and I would tell anyone to keep trying to get an appointment with him. You will never be sorry you did. Wonderful doctor and human being.
