  • I understand healthcare is very busy but I was not able to get my labs done, there was no appointments available at the physicians building. Fortunately the labs at the hospital were able to squeeze me in because I was an employee (I went to the hospital lab, they were actually closed at the time and an employee there was very kind to accommodate me) I got the results back on my chart the same day, very impressed with that.

  • I never feel rushed. Dr Chesney always gives me ample time to ask questions that are of concern to me. He gives me thoughtful responses and offers to research things outside of his usual scope. We’ve been patients of his since he started his practice and feel confident with his abilities.

  • Going to Southcoast is always a pleasant experience. Dr Chesney and his team are great to work with.

  • Dr. Chesney care. I have been with him for a very long time. I have the choice to choose any provider with commercial insurance. If he wasn't fantastic, I wouldn't be his patient.

  • A joy to go to and always feel like I'm taken care of

  • No issues.

  • Went in for a very specific issue, got a referral, staff even called and set up the appointment. I highly recommend this provider!

  • Medical assistant called 2 hours prior my appointment. To me that was a bit early. Caught me off guard usually it's a half hour before your appointment.

  • Check-in was prompt, quick, easy - the doctor was on time. The only critique I really have is that I needed to provide blood work on my physical and there was no available appointments - and usually I just kind of walk down the hall, and I realize that the covid does change things - but I do feel like there should be blood work appointments available for people that have physicals. I did call the office to make an appointment the day I left and still waiting to can get a phone call back to schedule blood work. So that's the one thing I do have a complaint about - other than that, my experience was great.

  • Listen to my concerns. Respond in a positive way. I trust my doctors opinion.

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.
