from Sheryl in MA March 19, 2016 for Edward J. Legare, MD, FACP

Dr Legare is an exceptional doctor! He embodies what it means to be a caring, relational, intelligent and competent physician. The privilege and advantage of having him as partner in my health is immeasurable. The service as my primary physician is worth far more than I pay for The concierge service MDVIP and I would be willing to pay more were I able to afford more than my monthly payments.… See more

from David in MA March 24, 2014 for Edward J. Legare, MD, FACP

Dr. Legare is a great physician and someone I consider a friend. More than going to just a routine exam, I actually enjoy our conversations. His success in handling my aversion to certain medication is just one example of the trust I have in him. I doubt another doctor would have been able to do this as easily as Ned Legare.

from Patricia M. in MA February 27, 2014 for Edward J. Legare, MD, FACP

Knowing help is a phone call away is a great comfort to me and my family.
Dr. Legare had been my primary physician before MVIP and I wanted to continue
with him. I can rely on his assessments and referrals to other doctors,

from Irene in MA February 26, 2014 for Edward J. Legare, MD, FACP

My family and I have known Dr. Legare for many years, and can say that I am blessed to have him as my PCP. Love the fact that I can call his office or email him and would get a response within minutes. He would hear me out with whatever my situation may be and more importantly, he was quick to schedule for further tests, maybe a referral to a specialist, or recommend his medical magic. It is… See more

from Susan in NY February 23, 2014 for Edward J. Legare, MD, FACP

Where do I begin to sing the praises of Dr. Legare? I have always found him to be an outstanding diagnostician with exceptional communication skills.

I have recently moved out of state and will continue to rely on his medical expertise and will always call him my… See more

from Diane in MA February 24, 2014 for Edward J. Legare, MD, FACP

My doctor had taken care of my parents in the past with great care and compassion. I have enjoyed my own experience with him also. Since he went with MDVIP, I can actually have an appointment with him and not just physician's assistants. I can spend time with him now during my appointments. He is leading me on a road to a healthier life.
