  • Dr. Amy AndersonThe Best Endocrinologist I have ever been to in 20+ yearsHighly recommend

  • Dr Anderson is very knowledgeable in her field. She ordered the neccessary bloodwork to see where I'm at currently. She asked plenty of questions to discuss my health.

  • Compassionate

  • September 9, 2020Dr. Andersen is extremely informed and caring regarding my medical needs; she is acutely tuned in to issues related to my specific medical condition and concerns. Dr. Andersen is an extraordinary health care professional. I am fortunate that Dr Andersen is my physician.

  • Dr Anderson is very attentive

  • I love my endocrinologist. She listens and is very helpful in getting me to reach goals to better my health.

  • I HAVE A COMPLETE UNDERSTANDING OF MY CURRENT HEALTH PROBLEMS AND TREATMENTS.

  • I am very happy with the great care I receive from South Coast !

  • Alls Good

  • I was hesitant about the Telehealthexperience, but it was surprisingly very positive at least for me. I hope this won’t need to continue, but I understand under these circumstances it’s helpful.

  • Dr Anderson is the best doctor I have met so far. She is always very helpful knowledgeable and on top of my condition. Last monday I had and appointment with my neurosurgeon Dr [Name] from Women's and Brigham's hospital. He told me that I'm very lucky to have a doctor like doctor Anderson. He was very impressed about my treatment with Dr Anderson. I personally cannot thank her enough. She always makes me very comfortable and trusting. Thank you very much Dr Anderson!

  • Dr. Anderson took the time to spend with me and hear everything that I needed to say regarding my health. She did not rush me. She did not try to shorten the visit. She spent as much time as I needed.

  • I am very pleased with this provider and office

  • Dr. Anderson is very clear on her diagnosis, and is very concerned with my fears and anxiety about my problem. I would definitely recommend her, and I don't know why I do it, but I dread going in, but after every time that I am walking out, I am so glad that I did meet her. That's all I have to say.

  • I think that the telehealth visits should be utilized as much as possible when the appointment is an uncomplicated checkup and the patient is doing well with the current treatment. This reduces the risk of exposure to pathogens and is much more convenient.

  • I had a wonderful experience during this time of hard times with the COVID I am very happy with my experience

  • This was my 1st face to face visit to this (Any) provider after waiting 8 months for this apt, unfortunately during covid-19 When I walk the building, I saw a sign that said "Screening" with an arrow pointing to the left. I was not there for any screening, I was there for an appointment. A women raised her voice call for, I realized, me,"Mam,Mam you need to enter to the left. I informed her I was here for an appointment not a screening, you have to be screen first" she said.in a loud rude tone. I said, to her "well i am sorry, I don't know that your sign should indicate that" she asked her questions, then she rudely placed a green dot on my rt upper chest. I found her to be rude, and abrupt, with no commission,and placing that dot on me without me being informed, is disrespectful. You need to inform your patients of the procedure rather than expectating me, the patient of your procedures without communication.

  • I made the mistake and thought my appointment was at 9 am on July 24. When I got to the facility I was asked to come back at 2 o’clock. I did not check my email and when I returned to the facility I was then told my appointment was a telehealth appointment. The doctor waited for me to return home to reach out.The communication should have been better at Truesdale clinic. Thankfully, the telehealth appointment went well with Dr Anderson and she was a pleasure to meet for the first time.

  • Well, this is the first visual, virtual appointment I've had because of corona, of course, and everything went fine. The only problem with it is the video tape freezes, so she's frozen, but talking but doesn't know she's frozen. So technology, I would say was not that good, but due to the corona virus. It should be getting up and getting dressed and going to the office there. So that's my story. Bye. She was very good. She was very efficient, but kept freezing up 4 or 5 times within a 10 minute phone call, I think bye. Bye.

  • Dr. Anderson is a very caring doctor. She is very much aware of my concerns and respects my decisions. She takes the time to listen to her patients and is very thorough.

  • Except for not being there it was very good and safe.

  • Yes, the front desk is always very helpful and seems to listen carefully to what my areas of concern our and I always got a call back. I would say 99% of the time if they tell me, you know, they're going to call back on something and you know, if not, it's no big deal. I call and I get attention immediately Dr. Anderson is wonderful. She listens with much patience to me and never acts like she doesn't have time. She's a wealth of knowledge.

  • This was a tele med appointment and the telephone lag time was a little long. Other than that, everything was fine.

  • The phone was better for me so I don't have to go out of the house. She also listen tentatively the best she could but I think could have gone better was if you looked at my file because I go to SouthCoast doctors. And since I go to all SouthCoast that there's I think my file should have been reviewed as far as what that is. I've seen in the past 3 months so that she could in understand why I was calling for my thyroid condition that I had.I recently believe that the doctors she really should look at a patient's file before making a phone call before sing in patient as to what's been going on at least the last the past 3 months so that the doctor will know where we're at and what how the visit was needed. Thank you.

Why does Southcoast publish survey ratings online?
Southcoast is dedicated to providing patients and consumers with helpful information about the quality of our patients’ experiences. Star ratings published on our physician biography pages are based on actual responses from patients of that particular physician to patient satisfaction surveys that are distributed and processed by a national patient satisfaction survey vendor.

Who receives the survey?
Our vendor sends surveys via SMS or email to all patients seen in our outpatient physician practices who have a valid smart phone number or email address on file with Southcoast Health. Surveys are sent to patients within a few days of their appointment.

How is the Patient Satisfaction Star Rating Calculated?
Star ratings are calculated using an average of all survey responses to each of three questions: Courtesy and Respect of Staff, Provider Overall Rating, and  Willingness to Recommend Provider’s Office.  The star rating displayed on our physicians’ main biography page represents the average of the three measures for that particular physician.
