She is the best doctor for us and we are satisfied and have recommended her to other people who have thanked us for a recommendation to Dr. Laxer.

  • She listen to you and works on fixing the problem

  • My physician is very attentive and informative. She always presents me with options and indicates which ones would be best for my health at the time.

  • The nursing assistant who saw me into my medicare Wellness Visit really explained the whole thing to me really, really well. She had a warmth and a sense of humor about her. I felt good about myself doing it.

  • Dr Laxer takes the time to listen to what you have to say. She listens then acts to get a solution. Excellent doctor.

  • The lab phlebotomist seemed annoyed by my visit. She never said hello, simply "did you check in at the desk?" I told her my doctor just sent me over and she rolled her eyes and appeared irritated. Never said another word to me during my visit. She was rude.

  • Dr. Laxer is a great doctor and I would highly recommend her.

  • [Name] MA, was thorough and listened to my health questions. She enhanced my visit to Westport Family Medicine. Definitely an asset to the practice.Dr. Laxer is a wonderful, caring practitioner. She provides the medical best care ever. I have been her patient for over 25 years. She is the best! Would never change.

  • [Name] the medical assistant was excellent. She went above and beyond for something I was having trouble with and took the time to make sure it was done correctly. She truly cares about the patients.

  • Courteous, friendly, prompt and empathic.

  • I was told on the 15th that someone would call me. That never happened. I spent the entire weekend getting worse. I called back on Monday the 18th and got mixed messages, but finally an appointment. Appt at 2-didn't see the doctor until 3. Notes in my case indicated sore throat and fever-I never had either. Disappointed

  • She's awesome!!

  • [Name] ( the medical assistant ?) greeted me, her personable manner calmed me down as I was stressed about running late . She was absolutely awesome. Dr Laxer was thorough, kind and truly listened to me . We discussed in detail all the issues I was having health wise. This was my first experience with Dr. Laxer's office and it was a great one .

  • Dr. Laxer is a wonderful doctor, and I am happy to recommend her to anyone, In fact several of my friends and one family member now go to her after my recommendation. She should be an example for all other physicians to follow.

  • Always pleased with Dr. Laxer and staff

  • Dr. Laxer has been a wonderful physician. She really truly listens and explains many things to me. On my recent visit, she recommended I do some things and it worked fine.

  • I was pleased at how empathetic and responsive the caregivers are.

  • Friendly staff - on time - helpful

  • Wait time was over 1 hour, could have been shorter

  • Okay. I feel great about this provider because she explained everything to me. And when when I say something that she doesn't like she'll tell me and she'll tell me why she doesn't like it. You know, because sometimes you have your own opinion and not very happy with her, and I would recommend Fairwood to anyone.

  • That facility is clean. The people are helpful. Dr. Laxer, she can't retire. Because she's the only doctor. My husband feels comfortable seeing and she's wonderful. She's up to date on her information. She provides helpful suggestions, she's incredible. The lab personnel, the phlebotomist, are terrific. You don't even know you having blood drawn. That's how great they are. And my only suggestion is, you don't need to take the temperature in the through it. I in the middle of the head you can get the same reading on the neck, which is better and save up for the person. And I don't have any other suggestions. I mean they are terrific in that office and Dr. Laxer. She is a godsend. Thank you. Bye.

  • Waited in the waiting area for 15 minutes, then in the exam room almost an hr while having to wear a mask with my COPD, Asthma, and CHF conditions and i was already had both my covid vaccines.

  • This was a follow-up visit. The process was timely and efficient.

  • Dr. Laxer takes the time to discuss any questions I might have in addition to always providing beneficial guidance.

  • As usual, the staff and Dr. Laxer especially were very attentive to my needs and Dr. Laxer was a real joy to see after the covid shut-in. So, we addressed some of my needs and in fact, I will be seeing a couple of specialists that she requested that I see or I asked that she request that I see and hopefully, we're going on a happy trails. So I was really happy to see her and looking forward to the coming summer months.

  • Booking unavailable at 6 month intervals. Perhaps overbooking....

  • Nothing needs to change.

  • Dr.Laxer and her team are the best! Always helpful, kind, and understanding.

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.
