  • Excellent visit. I can't think of a single improvement. Keep up the good work.

  • I was very pleased read my experience as I usually am I would highly recommend this office thank you

  • Was provided with Premier customer service.Thank you

  • I have been with this office for 2 1/2 years and have always felt comfortable and reassured. They are absolutely amazing people.

  • The care I received could not be any better.

  • The visit was perfect

  • Onschedule...much appreciated.

  • I was seen in a very timely manner. This provider is very responsive to messages on MyChart and the messages are answered usually within no more than 4 business hours. The attitude of the office staff AT THE FAIRHAVEN OFFICE leaves a lot to be desired when calling in and asking questions. They are less than pleasant. This applies to those who answer the questions, not those who answer the phone. It is a frustrating experience to call in and ask a question AT THIS OFFICE. The situation is not the same when going to the office. The provider is very knowledgeable about my complicated case.

  • Longer than normal wait to see Dr. LaRock. However, I always feel he spends enough time with me so assume he was simply being attentive to another patient.

  • Everything was perfect.

  • All good

  • Excellent experience

  • All experiences at this provider was outstanding. [Name]

  • very professional and helpful

  • Pleasant and comforting to talk to Very knowledgeable

  • Dr. LaRock exudes expertise and gave me the utmost confidence that I?m in good hands. He takes the appropriate time to fully explain the situation and process.

  • I have nothing to complain about with this Dr / staff. always professional, responds to questions takes time to explain any issues of concern

  • Dr. Larock is great

  • Great doctor and staff

  • EWe are very satisfied.

  • I was seen quickly both in registration and office appointment and everyone was pleasant and friendly and I felt they cared about me.

  • The experience was without fault.

  • I could not have had a better experience. Dr. Larock was able to see me with little advance notice before lower back surgery and explain the impact of such surgery on my bladder. He revised my medication and I was able to pass sufficient urine following procedure to be released promptly. His advice has made me much more comfortable.

  • There is never any improvement to make regarding his excellent care, as far as I’m concerned. I will never look for any other Urologist as long as I’m concerned, as well as I’m living. Sometimes there is a longer wait due to the fact that he has to make sure that other patients know all their details before they leave as much as myself. And that is very understandable. I totally agree with that because I myself may do the same.

  • Dr LaRock is AWESOME! Kind, courteous and extremely knowledgeable. I felt perfectly at ease with him and recommend him without hesitation.

  • I made my appointment 3 months in advance. I received a call that morning, saying appt had to be changed as a mistake was made and wasn’t scheduled properly by them. I had taken the day off specificallyvfkrctjid appt and wasn’t willing to reschedule. I had to strongly advocate that I needed the appt to happen that day, as mistake was not my fault. Eventually I was accommodated and appt was honored but someone with less hutzpa than myself would have been greatly inconvenienced due to staff mistake by having to reschedule. Attention to detail or not waiting until the last minute before trying to reschedule would be more professional.

  • I cannot honestly answer the last questions other than to say Dr. Larock is the best urologist I know.

  • I was satisfied with the visit. Dr. LaRock was very kind and informative.

  • Dr. Laroche and staff were all exceptional. The procedure went as was explained. In the time prior to the procedure date I however had time to research what the procedure was all about and other technology available today to diagnose my symptoms. I was a bit surprised that Southcoast is still using a conventional older method than what is available, is more accurate and is very targeted rather than the process I went through. That said I have the upmost respect and confidence in my care providers.

  • From the staff at the front desk, to the young lady that prepped me for the procedure, and to Dr. LaRock I couldn’t have been taken care of any better. There was plenty of professional explanation that went on regarding my situation and there was enough playful banter to keep the room loose through it all. Many thanks to everyone involved and Merry Christmas. See you next November[Name]

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: Helpfulness of Clerks & Receptionists, 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.
