Patient Comments (45)

At Southcoast Health, we strive to deliver exceptional patient care along with an exceptional patient experience. We appreciate all of your feedback and share your comments to recognize the wonderful care our teams provide to you as well as identify areas for improvement.

  • Dr Zeller is always thorough and encouraging when I see her. I feel respected and listened to.

  • Staff was professional, friendly, and helpful. I was a new patient and I felt the doctor was thorough and listened carefully. There was some rushing near the end of the appointment, probably because I took longer than expected, and when I asked for the doctor to call in a refill on a medicine I was running out of, I was shrugged off a bit and I had to call after I got home to ask for the prescription to be filled. Otherwise this was a very good experience. I felt the doctor and staff were practicing excellent precautions due to COVID-19 as well.

  • Always helpful, clean office. Not always fast service, but always corteous

  • Dr. Zeller has always been so patient with me, helping me understand my own care needs and helping me manage my care plans. She remembers things about me, showing that she is invested in me as a person and not just prescribing pills and treatments to be rid of me. If I needed a med refill, a referral, or a non emergent question answered, Doc Z was on it like white on rice. Dr. Z is the first to notice positive changes in me, and encourages me to keep my head up, even when my health has occasionally been a challenge for me. I’m grateful for her care.

  • This was a telemedicine appt which is always unique in its play-out. Dr Zeller was both extremely professional and personable especially with dealing with a sensitive issue that was the focus of my visit. While seeing a doctor over a computer with masks on and not having met in person before is extremely impersonal, I felt comfortable and listened to the whole time and appreciate the action she took and confidence she gave me in the plan going forward and referrals needed. I am thankful for the hard work being done by doctors and their office staff to meet needs while juggling public health and being proactive in technology options. Also, the office was extremely quick in finding me a referral appt and getting me into it and communicating with me.

  • I thought Dr. Zeller was very informative very pleasant.

  • It worked well. FaceTime Medicare wellness with Dr Zeller.She ordered necessary bloodwork and prescription refills.

  • Dr. Zeller is extremely careful to listen to what I say and to make sure she understands what I say before she answers. I truly appreciate the experience of working with Dr. Zeller.

  • I feel that the visit went well and I received information that I had forgotten about.

  • Dr. Zeller, is fabulous and knowledgeable and spends the time I need to discuss health issues and would highly approve.

  • Excellent experience Thank you

  • I had a face time call with my doctor. The whole checkin procedure and call with the doctor was quick and seemless - much better than during normal times!!

  • Dr. Zeller was the most professional and caring doctor I’ve seen in years. She really took the time to examination. Explained treatment, did the testing she deemed necessary. She was confident and made me happy, considering the circumstances.

  • I was there for over two hours. It seemed like the provider had to go in and out of the examination room a lot due to competing demands.

  • Dr. Zeller was very attentive and did a great job with my annual Medicare visit.

  • I felt that the practitioner that I saw recently really listened to me as a patient and explained things to me in full, which I have not received in the past at the same facility. So this recent provider really answered all of my questions and made me feel like I left with a good understanding of various aspects of my health and ways in which I can improve it and make better choices. And really seemed to care about my health and my health history, and again how I can improve my health.

  • As a new patient, my two experiences were different. This visit was more relaxed and unhurried,Staff were warm and professional.

  • I was impressed with your team’s professionalism.

  • Visit was easy. Short wait. Dr. was considerate, thorough and pleasant as always.

  • I have been in the healthcare industry for the last 20+ years, most recently at a FQHC, and found that your staff, technology, and follow up were exceptional. Congratulations!

  • My visit was very comprehensive and Dr Zeller was extremely thorough. She took time to make sure that I understood everything.

  • Dr Zeller was great, I was supposed to have an new patient exam but had something come up and she addressed that immediately and postponed physical for a few weeks. One of the best Dr-Patient experiences I’ve had.

  • I was a new patient which is why my doctor didn’t know my whole history. She was very thorough and asked so many important questions; she connected the dots between some of my concerns and brought up suggestions my former doctors had not. She spent a great deal of time really thinking about what I was telling her.

  • Very professional and concise

  • an excellent facility. Staff was efficient and friendly. However - the wait was just too long. We are requested to be 15 minutes early and then wait for an hour!

  • My 21 year old son is taking my referral and will become one of Dr Zeller's new patients today. She is extraordinary and I have every confidence in referring my son to her.

  • great service

  • Dr. Zeller is excellent. I have total confidence in her care and assessment.

  • Everyone was positive, visually well rested and professional. I had full confidence in the care I was given and will continue to value this practice and supporting team.

  • It was the most complete examine I have ever had. Very happy with Dr. Zeller

  • Everything went great. They are so good to me. Been coming here since it opened. Staff is great and very hard working.

  • The attentive staff made me feel comfortable. The patient should be made aware of the difference between a wellness and a physical check-up.

  • Foremost… Made me feel comfortable and cared for. Also professional and clear. Knowledgeable and helpful.

  • Dr. Zeller is a great Doctor! She always has the time to listen to me. Her patients come 1st.

  • This was my initial visit with Dr. Zeller. I was seen on time, and Dr. Zeller went over my medical history. She also was able to conduct a physical. I really appreciated that because it was not scheduled.

  • Im fully satisfied of services provided at the facility, It was my first time there, i’m Glad I made the right choice to be your patient from now on. Thank you, don’t change anything.

  • Very friendly human to human contact. Everything was just fine nice service thank you

  • Dr. Zellar is so thorough and compassionate. Best doctor I've ever had. The other staff is so friendly and helpful too!

  • Today was a good comprehensive exam. Get more strings for the johnnie is my recommendation.

  • all was done in a well an timely manner .

  • Dr. Zeller's thoroughness, communication skills, and listening skills are simply outstanding. The 45 minute wait to get thru the door followed by a 20 minute wait to see Dr. Zeller followed by another 20 minute wait to get a flu shot (and I flagged down a nurse to get it) were annoying. Given the thoroughness, the 45 minute wait was WORTH IT. The other waits could have been better.

  • Waiting time could be a little less

  • I have not one complaint about anything. Everything went smoothly and not I have a new primary care physician.

  • Hiring Dr. Zeller!! She is "the most" ABSOLUTE "BEST DR.I've ever had! She is more than worthy, she is kind, mist sufficient and dedicated to one needs and concerns, she's A KEEPER FOR SURE!!

  • Kathleen Zeller embodies every quality I look for in a Pcp. Professionalism, thoroughness and respect

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.
