  • I feel everything goes very well with this Dr consistently. Very pleased with the whole office.

  • This was my first appointment in the new location. I was lost did not know where to go and no signs with instructions. Very disappointing because I was a few minutes late. Glad I was seen for my appointment.Thanks to the young woman in the elevator told me I needed to go to the ground floor.

  • I love Dr Anderson .She really listens to what you have to say and is down to earth. Her staff is wonderful too

  • I did have to wait 8 months to get a new patient appointment. The Dr was 45 minutes late while I waited in exam room which had me wondering if I wanted to start a relationship with this office. She explained that she had 2 patients that needed extra time before me.

  • Always an excellent experience.

  • Easier and kinder professional checking in and out of the facility. Nurse was very knowledgeable, courteous, kind and professional. Same for the Doctor. I feel the doctor needs more time with me during the visits to go over my chart as a whole. I see quite a few doctors at SouthCoast and my file is lengthy. One doctor sometimes contradicts another because of my file being so lengthy. I feel also what I discuss at times is not being adding to my file. It should be in order to help the other physicians looking at my file.

  • I have ben seeing DR Anderson for 5 or 6 years now regarding my thyroid cancer treatments and is completely aware of my situation and treats me with knowledge and thoughtfulness.

  • Very professional

  • The only thing is keeping my appointment close to the scheduled time rather than very late. I find that this seems to happen with a phone call vs. an office visit.

  • Dr Anderson is Awesome!!!!!!

  • I love Dr Andersen. She is always, pleasant, knowledgeable, and kind. I am so happy that there is finally an endocrinologist here at southcoast.

  • The patient ahead of me was 30 minutes late, so I waited 30 minutes to see my provider. It wasn't her fault or her staff.

  • Everyone was on time and they were very professional I would recommend south coast to my family and friends

  • Dr Anderson is so caring and personable that I trust her opinion when making health care choices

  • Dr Andersdon and her staff are wonderful

  • The only problem was the person who was doing the screening in the lobby of the building. I have never seen a person in a position like that who was so rude, not caring. She badgered the person in front of me; was very sarcastic and snide about directing me. The "line" was not clear yet I was scolded for not being on the line despite being the only person at her desk at the time. I had come from the "back" entrance and it wasn't clear where to go. She was sarcastic and nasty, and on my way out I saw she was just playing on her phone. When someone is the first person you encounter in a place, they need to be a pleasant ambassador for your facility, not a rude angry person. There are people who come there who are frightened about a medical diagnosis or condition, and need compassion not criticism and anger. The poor woman at the main desk was so apologetic and tried her best to calm people down who had that unpleasant encounter. You need to do better at staffing that screening position with people who represent all you have to offer in a pleasant, welcoming demeanor. I never criticize people but she was horrible.

  • Dr Anderson was very polite and knowledgeable about my history which was amazing!!

  • This doctor listens well and is very thorough and responsive.

  • Worth the 6 month wait.

  • She listens to everything I say which is very important to me. She makes me feel like she cares & takes in everything I tell her. She answers all my questions no matter how [Redacted] they are.

  • Dr. Anderson is the best. She was very, very thorough and very knowledgeable about my case. I would tell everyone about her. I am blessed to have her as my doctor.

  • My first time with dr. Anderson she was through explained everything to me asked if had any questions for her. Very nicely mannered would highly recommend her.

  • Doctors are rushed to get patients in and out of the office because of their contracts. Makes it hard for them to review a patients complete file and then be able to spend time with the patient in the exam room. I feel they are overwhelmed.

  • Translated from Portuguese - My experience was very good. I have a problem that has no-- it has not much (INAUDIBLE); however, the experience that I had with my doctor was excellent. She talks to me as if I were her friend. So, my experience was very good and the people who work at the front desk are also excellent people, they treat me like somebody special. So, thank you for calling, and I'm okay with them. Okay. Bye.

On this visit my blood sugars have been so good I was able to come off insulin, something I never thought would have been possible.

Southcoast Health physician profiles now feature star ratings.  Below, you’ll find frequently asked questions about our process for calculating the ratings.

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.
