from Robert in MA March 21, 2023 for Edward J. Legare, MD, FACP

Simply put Dr. Legare is "One in a Million." You won't find a better doctor anywhere and I feel extremely fortunate to have him. He has made my life better in so many ways, I couldn't imagine having anyone else as a doctor! He is the best of the best!!!

from ROBERT in MA March 16, 2020 for Edward J. Legare, MD, FACP

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.

from John in MA March 15, 2020 for Edward J. Legare, MD, FACP

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|||||

from Max in MA March 12, 2020 for Edward J. Legare, MD, FACP

At my recent annual physical exam, my doctor Ned Lagare reviewed all of the labs and poked and prodded my torso. I was in good shape with stable year-over-year numbers. But, since we'd had a relationship that was approaching 20 years, he was well aware of my parents' health and the causes of their deaths. He suggested that given a family history of coronary disease I should have a CT-scan for… See more

from BARBARA in ME March 10, 2020 for Edward J. Legare, MD, FACP

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
