  • 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.

  • 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.

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.
