  • Love my doctor

  • Positive experience

  • Even though it is necessary during this pandemic and even though we don't have pressing medical issues, it still isn't satisfying to "visit" with our doctor over the phone. The medical technician that made the pre-visit call was wonderful and the doctor was very helpful, but we miss the face to face contact.

  • More time to discuss lab test results

  • Dr Gendreau and the staff were great.

  • Dr Gendreau is great. Very polite and professional and always makes you feel assured and comfortable.

  • This has been a very difficult year for everyone I know things have not been easy to either provide or receive care hopefully we will be back to normal soon

  • Explained everything and could relate to my problem

  • The doctor was informative and seemed to really care about me

  • Very knowledgeable and interactive. He would interact with me then occasionally type something on the computer.

  • Always an empathic down to earth conversation.

  • Your personnel do well. You need to keep them so we aren't having to change our doctors.

  • I got into the office on time, little wait in the lobby. The triage nurse was on point and got my vitals done, and set up a flu-shot for me and Dr. Gendreau was win a few minutes later. Good visit, little time wasted but not rushed out the door. Was able to get my lab-draw an hour later, that was the only down side of the visit but I went and did some banking to use the time. The blood draw was quick and painless, good people and friendly to deal with.

  • Got me in and out right away. Great job especially considering the difficulties of the pandemic. Can't say enough wonderful things about all the staff that I've encountered during my visits.

  • First time with a new provider, Dr Gendreau! He was excellent and knowledgeable!

  • My provider was very knowledgeable and polite

  • Upon arrival We were screened properly to ensure safety for ourselves and others, we were checked in immediately, brought to a room as soon as check-in was completed, and the doctor arrived promptly after vitals were taken and shots needed were given. Our doctor assisted us in finding one to replace him since he is moving into a different field of medicine which I was grateful for. We were in and out in a half hour! We also had extremely pleasant and helpful staff assist us throughout the visit. Well done Southcoast! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  • My physician always listens carefully to my health concerns and give me the best medical attention.

  • I love Dr Kevin Gendreau.He is awesome :)

  • There is no improvement needed with Dr.Gendreau or his staff...Dr. Gendreau is hands down the BEST doctor I have EVER had....any person that has him as their doctor is lucky indeed

  • My physical visit went well. No issues and met my expectations. I was surprised that I needed to come back for blood work as the blood draw was booked for the entire month of October.

  • Dr. Gendreau always has a calming demeanor and is very knowledgeable about my specific health and needs. He takes his time and makes it a point to know you as an individual versus running you out the office.

  • New patient physical teleconference. Went well, happy with the outcome. I was pleased with the experience with Dr. Gendreau and the office staff. I appreciate the telehealth, I hope this option continues even beyond when it is needed, I see it as a good alternative for some visits both from a health perspective but also from a convenience perspective.

  • Overall had a great experience everyone working had a great attitude and Dr. Gendreau was great!!

  • Everyone was awesome from registration, med tech, physician, lab tech and physician’s secretary. No wait time and everyone was very genuine and attentive.

  • Always friendly, punctual, and knowledgeable!

  • Everything

  • Dr.Gendreau those at the Fairhaven Southcoast facility are always polite, and professional. They listen well, and explain each phase of the examination. I am very grateful for Dr. Gendreau's knowledge and expertise in helping me with my healthcare needs.

  • I have always received the best care with Dr Gendreau and the staff has always also been friendly, informative, yet at a highly professional level.

  • Everyone was very pleasant and the doctor was excellent.

  • Always pleased with my visits.Short waiting times, front desk,all other employees extremely helpful and pleasant. Dr. Gendreau is fabulous! Always greets you with smile and interested in what's happening in your life. Very informative when asking questions about your any concerns. So pleased to have found him for my Physician!Definitely A Keeper

  • Would prefer face to face visit. But in these times of covid telehealth was adequate

  • Scheduling the tele health call was a bit strange, they gave a time then called an hour later to change it then called again before the appointment to say they would call at a certain time...a bit much. That said the video call was great and I recommend keeping this option.

  • This is one of the best doctors I have ever had.

  • Keep up the goo work

  • Dr.G.has such an amazing personality. It is hard to come by someone who is genuinely kind and happy these days.

  • Dr Gendreau was very helpful.

  • I was totally satisfied with every aspect of the visit.

  • I do not like telehealth. You cannot substitute this for an in-person visit, I guess it is a sign of the times. Do not make this the new standard in health visits. For the time being it is okay but not in the future.

  • The communication is excellent and myself and boyfriend both felt like our time was valued and all the staff were patient and friendly with us.

  • The Dr us always very patient, knowledgeable and doesn't rush the appointment

  • Since this was my first visit with the doctor, it had to be done remotely due to the Covid crisis. I look forward to my first in-person visit in the future. However, the televisit with the doctor was done promptly at the scheduled hour and the doctor used a platform that was very easy for me to also utilized and thus made me quite at ease during the visit even though it was a remote one.

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.
