  • I love dr macfarlane he is the best dr I have ever had! He listens and his attentive and always polite and understands my personal health issues! And he's very thorough when it comes to testing and anything medical thank u dr Mac

  • Very well as far as timeliness, examinations, and instructions. I would have liked a little more time to talk about various symptoms I have had, and what they meant.

  • Very timely and courteous staff and always squeeze me in when I need to be seen right away

  • Nice Doctor and staff.

  • I do find that, Dr. Macfarlane is one of the best doctors we have at South Coast. I can't say that for your gastro people, but we are everybody misses doctor one that left us and but Dr. Macfarlane is a very good good doctor, and I would recommend him to anyone as far as the rest of their their South Coast doctors. Well, just a question sometimes and I do care for my own primary care and I guess that's all that matters and I'm hoping he's going to hang in there with me. And that's my answer. I think we need more doctors for Orthopedic because we're only funding with 2 people and it's I'm not crazy about one of them. So I have to go elsewhere.

  • I was seen on time and he was very informative on anything that I asked them.

  • Excellent care

  • Dr Macfarlane is a wonderful and gifted doctor/surgeon. His office is efficient , friendly and always prompt. They made my surgery and follow up easier than I ever expected and I would give them hugs and kisses if it weren't for covid ;)

  • The Drs, and providers are always good, listening to my health concerns, especially when there's family history involved. There's one nurse that brings you into the rooms that always seems to have an attitude, and is always negative when you talk to her.

  • the support the staff and providers gave me helped me get a very difficult time and i am thankful for that.

  • The staff are fantastic and attentive but spending $55 for a three minute appointment to give the briefest of overviews about my health, is sadly the result of a for-profit healthcare system.

  • Improvement would be trying to get patients in sooner rather than later.

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.
