I feel truly blessed to have access to Dr. Legare for my healthcare needs. He truly cares about his patients and their wellness. The MDVIP model allows him to practice medicine the way he intended to when studying to become a doctor and gives him extended, dedicated time to each patient.

He holds his patients to high standards of wellness. I just had my annual physical and I have… See more

from Janet in MA February 16, 2014 for Edward J. Legare, MD, FACP

I have had some difficult health situations in the past 2 years and Dr. Legare has been right by my side both medically and emotionally comforting. He has been so wonderful to both me and my family. Whenever I have a question he responds immediately. I feel very fortunate to have him as my physician. The office staff is also compassionate and caring. It is very comfortable to call the office… See more

from Susan in MA February 14, 2014 for Edward J. Legare, MD, FACP

It is a great pleasure to talk about Dr. Legare. I've been a patient of his for probably at least 15 years and have always found that he is very available and responsive. I feel lucky to have him in my life and consider him a friend as well as my doctor. When my mother recently passed away, he could not have been more attentive to her needs and the needs of the rest of my family.… See more

from Susan in MA February 13, 2014 for Edward J. Legare, MD, FACP

Dr. Legare is a remarkably, caring doctor.He is easy to talk to and is always prompt in returning emails and phone messages.Even on a Friday evening when he is at a Country Music Concert with his family, he returned my phone call.
I was very upset when I called him shortly after 5:00 that Friday, and yet he took the time to listen to me and calm my fears.
When I found out that he… See more

from Mary in MA February 11, 2014 for Edward J. Legare, MD, FACP

I was recommended to Dr. Legare by Brigham and Women's hospital when I went in to the emergency room with a kidney stone over 20 years ago, and my husband and I, and now our son, have been with him ever since and we couldn't be happier. Who would have thought my kidney stone would have produced such a wonderful relationship?! Ned always has time to discuss medical, family and any… See more

from Susan in MA February 10, 2014 for Edward J. Legare, MD, FACP

Dr. Legare is not only my PCP but is a trusted friend. I have been his patient for over 15 years. As I approach my 65th birthday I find that I am in excellent health and much of the credit goes to him. He is extremely responsive to any concerns or questions and has always referred me to outstanding specialists. I have complete confidence in him and look forward to being his patient for many… See more

from Michael in MA February 9, 2014 for Edward J. Legare, MD, FACP

Dr. Legare saved my life and continues to guide me and my family through a difficult process, with incredible care. The highest of praise is not enough recognition! Huge thanks.

from Grace in MA February 9, 2014 for Edward J. Legare, MD, FACP

My husband and I have been Dr. Legare's patients for decades. We can't imagine working with any other physician and didn't hesitate to join his concierge practice.

My husband and I are very different. My husband is nervous about his health and seeks a lot of reassurance. Ned is responsive and patient with him. He responds quickly, with care and comforting remarks… See more

from Frederick in MA February 9, 2014 for Edward J. Legare, MD, FACP

DR. LEGARE felt a lump in my lower left quadrant during my physical exam. He immediately referred me to a Surgeon who removed my cancerous left kidney. Eleven months later he again referred me to an Orthopedic Surgeon who did surgery on the metastasis of the clear cell renal carcinoma to my right femur. Again, four years later I had the aforementioned metastasis redone.
Dr. Legare,… See more

from Marge in ME February 7, 2014 for Edward J. Legare, MD, FACP

We have been with Dr. Legare for more than a decade and he's so inspiring, careing and responsive. He's there every step of the way during serious illness ensuring we have the most competent care when it means seeking other necessary additional consults. No other doctor has it all like Dr. Legare - so competent, compassionate, responsive and available.
