Testimonials from patients of Dr. Legare
I met Dr. Legare 20 years ago, and I have been going to him ever since. He always gives me great advice. He always has time to speak with me, and I never feel rushed. He gets me in anytime I need an appointment. I look forward to seeing him, and I feel good after my visit. I appreciate his "big picture" approach - he gets all the details to address the issue at hand.
I have never met a kinder or careing man. If he ever leaves I would never go anywhere else. He means everything to me and my family. There's no one out there who could come close to this great great man. I would do anything for this man and his family. God knows he made a good one|||||
I am a 88 yr old male and believe Dr Legare has brought me to this stage of my life...He responds to emails or calls almost immediately, whether out of his office or on vacation...He has surrounded himself with great staff that share his concerns.. I consider myself to be a very fortunate person.

Dr. Legare is that rare professional who has the ability to make you feel like you are a personal friend, a member of his medical family. When I visit him he makes me feel that I have his full attention and that my health is the most important thing on his plate. For that thirty minutes or so I actually believe it's true, and I'm sure all of his other patients feel that way as well. Thankfully… See more
Thank you Dr. Legare! A doctor's visit can make me nervous; however, when I sit down in your office and share thoughts and concerns about both my mental and physical health you listen! Not only do you listen, but you engage me in a lively conversation based on science and facts. It becomes a fun exchange and my worries wash away. I always feel that you are on top of the latest, greatest… See more
It was November of 1997. I was complaining about discomfort in my chest and Dr Legare ordered a stress test. Nothing showed up that was alarming, but I continued to experience mild shortness of breath and slight discomfort. Unsatisfied with continued standard tests results, Dr Legare ordered a cardio-cath where it was determined that my left main artery was close to 90% blocked. Apparently,… See more
