  • Dr. Hurteau is what all doctors should be: patient, thorough, respectful, informative. What I've always respected most is his ability and willingness to work with parents to come up with a course of action. He is not too proud to pretend to be a specialist in areas, and will refer out if the need be. He is down-to-earth and laid back, but will take concerns seriously. I am not typically one to trust a doctor merely for their title, but I do trust his judgment more than most! He respects viewpoints outside of his own, and seems to genuinely care for his patients (which sadly seems lacking with other "professionals" in the field).10/10! Thank you Doctor Hurteau, for being an excellent Family Doctor!

I come from Australia, where the medical system is much easier to navigate. This was much more like my experience in Australia, rather than my experience in the USA (with BMC) in the last 2 years. Top rate!

  • Visit OK at this time

  • Hard to improve on this staff and their services. Top shelf ALL!

  • Scheduling of appointments as needed and for unexpected sick visits are always done ASAP.

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.
