I am grateful that this entire team was genuine, professional and reassured me . Thank you. I look forward to my follow up. I will highly recommend to other professionals.( Please make visible a sign that says " HEMATOLOGY" ON THE OUTSIDE. I WAS SO CONFUSED TO WHERE THIS OFFICE WAS. I am grateful I left an hour and a half earlier to find it.) Blessings.

  • Everyone was helpful and courteous. The process was made as agreeable as it could possibly be.

  • The office rescheduled my initial visit twice without my knowledge. If there's a need to reschedule it should be done with the patients input to make sure it's a suitable day and/or time.

  • Bloodwork and Doctor meeting were on time and they took all the time I needed to have a successful patient, Doctor appointment.The staff is very thoughtful and concerned about my health and concerns.Dr. Blanchard is thorough and compassionate, as well as competent.

  • The staff care, and it's noticeable. Please allow physicians to have more than 15min with their patient, and please pay the administrative staff a thriving wage. They all work incredibly hard, face a lot of their patient's grief. It takes a mental toll and these people should be well taken care of financially and benefit wise.

  • Although it is generally a short wait it could be better. Overwise the care is excellent

  • It's been over 10 years now since I've been a patient at this office and I've always been treated not only in a professional manner, but with kindness and caring. The only suggestion I have is to come up with a process that doesn't waste so much paper—I noticed the check out desk prints multiple copies that end up in the recycle bin! 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.
