  • It was excellent

  • Dr Robertson is always polite and takes his time and listens to what I say or feel I need for recovery of my injury/surgery on my arm. He is always knowledgeable about different treatments available to me. He is the BEST!

  • I arrived 25 minutes early and was in the office in about 5 minutes. Dr Robertson was right on top of my problem and explained exactly how my injury would heal. He also provided a better harness for my broken clavicle. So glad I was able to see him. I can't think of anything that could have been better.

  • Staff was very understanding and patient. Very helpful. Dr was awesome was able to listen to me and answer my questions.

  • Answered all questions and took hos time wasnt in a rush to usher me out of his office

  • Dr. Robertson listened to what I had to say

  • Excellent provider with good follow up.

  • Doctor discussed long term pan for me

  • Staff was very kind

  • Dr Robertson explained everything that's going on with my injury. And informed me how we will go about treatment for me to get better. Excellent Dr. The only problem is that the Drs are always booked

  • I was treated well by everyone in the office and the doctor took his time discussing my options.

  • All is good

  • 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.

  • I was happy

  • Dr. Robertson has a terrific disposition and completely understood my concerns. He took his time to explain things to me and directed me toward the next steps in my medical care

  • No changes necessary.

  • Dr. Robertson is wonderful. He is kind, emphatic & always listens carefully. I know he's very busy, but he never makes me feel that way. Always takes the appropriate time with me. He makes me feel like I'm his only patient.

  • 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.

  • Kind and informative

  • Dr. Robertson gave good information to me in an understandable way. He seems interested in my health needs and has a practical approach.

  • Nothing at all

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.
