  • Always a pleasant and enjoyable experience at this office.

  • My experience with Dr. Chesney's Southcoast Health office is consistently exemplary. NAME, the receptionist, is professional, kind, helpful, and delightful. Each tech who claims me from the waiting room, as well as the lovely woman who checks me out, is also professional, kind and helpful. Dr. Chesney is the most consistent exemplar. He is thorough and skillful, and I trust him medically because of that; but, more importantly, I trust Dr. Chesney because he cares, he puts me at ease (not easy), and if he is unsure of an answer or diagnosis, he gets a second opinion. No high and mighty solo flyer in Dr. Chesney....he's humble, and I like that. Listen, there are plenty of physicians and offices to choose from, and if my family and I were not thrilled with Southcoast, we would have left long ago. Please keep this practice as cannot improve on perfect! Thanks,

  • Awesome As always staff was friendly prompt professional It’s such a pleasure Office seems to run very smoothly

  • I have been a patient of Dr. Chesney for about 20 years. He is simply wonderful. He listens carefully, explains comprehensively, and offers feedback which evidences his understanding. His bedside manner is attentive, caring and genuine. Also, he uses humor to diffuse anxious situations, which is hard to find in providers! I have recommended him many times, and will continue to do so in the future. Also, a word about [Name] at the front desk: She is consistently thorough and kind-always a pleasure to work with!

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.
