  • Down to earth with explanations. Caring attitude.

  • It would be nice to see the doctor on time, but that has never happened when I visit any doctor … they overbook!Dr. Robertson is a great doctor and really listens to his patients!

  • From [Name] checking me in through Dr. Robertson checking me out, to checking out and making a next appointment, everything was Top Notch, professional, wonderful service, couldn't ask for more.

  • After surgery there was a nurse [Name]u00A0Who made sure that my pain level was manageable and that I knew how to use the crutches and went above and beyond in explaining what to do when I get home. I'm very thankful for caring attitude.

  • Very professional office staff very friendly. I particularly liked the sign that indicated the employee at the front desk was training , so people could have patience with her as she goes thru the training process . Dr Robertson was very pleasant and informative. I formed a very trusting patient relationship with him. I feel comfortable with my decision to have him perform surgery on my shoulder.

  • Excellent people

  • The doctor, he was great. As were all the staff fantastic. Large man of color, nurse maybe, showed me to the examination room, he was really cool & friendly guy! I wasn't too impressed with the congestion in the waiting room, at all. There's was a lot of people just sitting there waiting. Which amazingly did not effect how long I waited to be called. But I found it rather....careless...all the people. We are still at the tail end of a Covid19 pandemic. I'd definitely suggest something be done about that. Ironically all the covid protocol signage was all piled into one area....also on top of each other.

  • Very well. Taken care of very well. Everything was explained. Very pleasant, good mannerisms.

  • The doctor listened to my concerns and everyone was respectful and kind.

  • My only 'problem' was waiting a month for an appointment. I have chronic pain in my left shoulder and was looking forward to try to find relief and waiting weeks to get an appointment was annoying and uncomfortable. It's not a life threatening situation but seems to be what happens often when booking a doctor's visit. Seems universal and almost expected everywhere.

  • I found the office to be clean and the staff are friendly. I get my appointments when I need them and can call if I need to. I like my doctors too.

  • Dr Robertson had been my provider since August 2019. He is very informative, listens to my question and concerns, and know that I want to be told exactly what the course of action needs to be. He is very attentive when I have concerns and he communicated with my PC and any specialist I may have seen. He is the best physician in this area for his speciality and I have referred him to many friends.Thank you Dr Robertson for the concern you show to your patients, for never rushing my appointment and always being honest about my medical issues. More Drs show take the time and be dedicated to their patients as you are. Thank you, you are the BEST!!

  • [Name] was very professional and showed she cared about my issue. Dr. Roberson performed a rotator cuff operation on me in 2019 and the results turned out to be excellent. Today he was very attentive and explained what he felt the issue might be with my left knee and what steps we should take to define a treatment plan. He's an excellent Dr. and I've recommended him to others in my circle of friends.

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.
