Ned not only cares for me, he cares about me, as well as my whole family. He is able to see me as an individual, but also in the context of my family. He is truly a family doc, the way my own father was back in 1930s small town USA.
Being the son of a doctor, I have very high standards for medical care. I can, without hesitation, say that Dr. Legare is outstanding. He combines a genuine interest in my well being with the latest advancements in technology/science to ensure my health. His counsel and treatment are phenomenal.

My husband and I are celebrating milestone birthdays this year (70) and really thinking about our mortality in ways both silly and serious.

There is one decision that we really do care about - keeping Ned… See more

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
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.
