  • Since day 1 of my surgical procedure and subsequent discovery of a 'mass' near my appendix, the entire Southcoast Experience has exceeded my expectations by a long shot. I constantly tell anyone I see how blown away I am at 'MyChart' and Charlton Hospital nurses, Doctors and staff.5 STAR all the way.and I am being 100% sincere here.

  • I felt a little dismissed regarding my health concerns

  • In my case I think it could have been done on the phone.

  • They did everything top shelf. Thank you

  • A brief appointment with a well prepared and knowledgeable Doctor. Good support staff too.

  • Dr Blanchard is excellent. Very patient and very intelligent

  • All the attention and care of all The nurses helped me a lot very kind patient attentive lovingshould have a menuSince I couldn't eat what they served meEverything else had a very good experience 10+

  • The doctor was very compassionate and helpful with this very difficult time

  • Always considerate and respectful - very appreciated!

  • The doctor and staff was very informative. When I asked questions that had the answer right a way. * the signage inside the building can be confusing for first time visitors.

  • Knowing my history isReassuring to me.

  • The only other cancer center I trust more is [Name] [Name] where I received my initial treatment, including radiation and surgery.

  • The kindness and caring attitudes by all the staff I encountered.

  • This was my 1st visit here at this practice and I must say from the front desk staff and all the staff members that came out to call different patient out in the waiting room while I was waiting. Everybody was just so friendly. So kind, you can really see that they care for their patient and I say, that makes such a difference. I would absolutely recommend, you know, South Coast, you know, oncology hematology to everybody that I know it's just the staff really made such a difference that you could see how much they truly care for their patients. It was so delightful to see it especially being a South Coast employee and being a manager myself. So, you know, I really, I really wish that, you know, some of my staff members were that, were that compassionate towards towards me, because it was really just such a nice, nice thing to see.

  • Coordinated with other health provider so redundant blood work wasn't needed.

  • She listened to my concerns . Reviewed my chart to advise me on the best course of action. I felt we worked together to understand the issues and come to conclusion that we both agreed on. You can't any better than that

  • Everyone was nice [Name] M.A , she is so sweet and kind. Dr Blanchard is kind compassionant. Answers my ? . I can't say enough wonderful things about her.

  • The lab was very professional sending a copy of my bloodwork to my provider at Brigham's.Lab work was done quickly and completely.Dr. Blanchard always listens to my questions and answers them completely and succinctly.It is a pleasure dealing with the oncology staff.

  • Kind,not rush. Caring

  • All went fast, no wait, very clean, we were spaced out. DR WAS VERY FRIENDLY! Explained everything and what to expect going forward.

  • Always listens intensely when talking .

  • Dr. Blanchard is WONDERFUL! She is highly competent and delivers excellent patient care. However, staff who answer the phone to schedule appts would not allow me to do a virtual visit and indicated it was noted that my visit needed to be in-person. When I questioned Dr. B about this she said I can do a virtual visit anytime. In-person visits during a covid surge present risk to me as I have a compromised immune system. Timely appts with my oncologist are very impt. The info that the phone/scheduling person provided to me was inaccurate and not appreciated.

  • Dr Blanchard listened to everything I said and helped me with my questions and concerns.

  • Dr. Blanchard always listens and is well-prepared and knowledgeable about my situation.

  • Great bedside manner

  • It is extremely frustrating when the Dr asks after each visit how you want to be contacted regarding lab results and you repeatedly tell them after each visit to call and yet there is never a phone call. If that isn't going to happen then maybe it should not be an option.

  • I have been a patient at Southcoast Health Medical Oncology for 10+ years now and the staff has always been very professional, friendly, caring and supportive!

  • De Blanchard and her entire team are amazingly knowledgable and caring. The facility is spotless and attractive

  • Everything was good and the docs were great! Figuring out the parking and how to find where I was going inside the building was kind of tricky.

  • MD was very nice and explained thoroughly. My infusion nurse was quite delightful. It is a very nice facility and would highly recommend

  • Everything was done well and explained with my care 1st. Great job by the staff. Thanks

  • On time, professional and courteous.

  • Everyone very kind and pleasant

  • Yeah, the the rep from the receptionist to the nurse and then the doctor. They were very friendly to me. And I think that (INAUDIBLE), they were timely. And efficient in what they got to do. Thank you.

  • every thing was done well

  • The woman who greeted me at the front door was so kind and caring, I am fortunate to have be experiencing treatment for cancer at this time like so many of your patients and if I were, she would make me at ease walking into the building. The woman who checked me in was very friendly and professional but she needs help. My appointment was about 50 minutes late, but I was glad to give up some time so that someone with a serious medical issue could have more time with Dr. Blanchard. As I was waiting, there were up to 6 people waiting to be checked in. One woman wasn't even able to stand in line so was so uncomfortable, luckily there were benches that she could sit on while waiting. My overall impression of the office was very good. I want to thank all of the staff who assist some of the most venerable people in our community. The office appeared to be very Covid-safe. I am fortunate to work from home during the pandemic, our healthcare workers are my heroes.

  • Service was great.

  • No need for improvement

  • The personnel that I saw at my appointment very very cordial, very, very helpful and very, very informative. I couldn't ask for any better treatment.

  • Dr. Blanchard listened to all my medical concerns. She agreed to personally contact my daughter about my worsening condition and change in medication.She ordered the new medication for me, and stopped the old medication.Medication information was included in the report I took home.

  • I'm unfortunately a naturally nervous person when I meet new people. Everyone was incredibly patient and kind, as I nervously spouted nonsense and babbled endlessly; I can't tell you how appreciative I was that I wasn't ignored but subtly helped to relax. Wonderful staff who didn't appear annoyed at me, thank you.

  • Dr Blanchard is excellent. Very kind,easy to talk,very attentive. She always wants to know how I'm really doing. I like her.

  • Absolutely trust in this doctor and her team! They are the best!

  • Dr Blanchard is kind and courteous, and I appreciate the Oncology Center and the care I have received there-

  • Very patient

  • My wait time was 20 minutes but the technician and oncologist apologized for the delay

  • Positive and professional meeting!

  • Very professional.Can't do much better.thank you

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.
