I don't feel and never have felt uncomfortable about discussing any medical concerns with her.

As for the staff. Yesterday I interacted with several of them.

I want you to know if I had any negative experience I would not hesitate to inform you but at this time they are and have been a great team!Diane

  • Always compassionate care

  • My doctor is always on top of things. Very easy to talk to about anything, and always looking out for me with any concerns.

  • Sometimes I wish my provider was a little more hands-on. Physicals are just a short visit of talking and information about specialist but it is hard to get specialist appointments right now and I would if preferred my provider did a quick examination of my current issue before I had to go to a specialist.

  • I love Dr Sundar , as a medical provider myself I appreciate that she tries conservative treatment before throwing meds for issues

  • I feel phone appointments do not serve the patient as well as in person. The doctor can not see the physical condition of the patient and I feel the time spent is more rushed than in person, which is rushed also. The doctors seem to spend more time dictating or typing away and only spend 1-3 minutes actually looking & checking & talking to the patient. So a "15 minute" visit is actually a 3-4 minute visit.

  • This office always gets us an appointment right away if need, And they are all very caring people and make you feel like you are the most important patient they have.

  • Everyone was so thorough and pleasant . Dr. Sunbar is a peach she knows her stuff and made me feel like I've been there for years and not my first apt. She's very upfront , straight to the point ( which I love ) and listens … I'm a Fairhaven resident and was like ugh travel to [Name] [Name] … glad I did - love Dr S. On point and reads patients history ect and asks ? And talks to recorder / makes notes on computer …. Just not Dr S. But staff in general - check in, being called in ect entire staff makes u feel like you care . Not like oh dr apt in/ out type of thing . Everyone that I dealt with today was hands down on point and 200% about patients - thank you [Name]

I hope I can have a for the rest of my life. She's excellent. She knows what she's doing. She has empathy, and kindness and you can tell she enjoys seeing her patients. Thank you, and have a nice day.

  • Dr. Sundar is an amazing provider. I have one piece of constructive feedback that would make her even better. Charting the notes of our visit via the talk text tool device should be done when the patient has left the room or she should be given a scribe. Having her have to chart our visit via talking in front of me is weird. Southcoast needs to support their providers with more resources or they will lose amazing Drs like her.

  • I came for the appointment on time. I was taken in right away. Everyone was courteous and caring.

  • Well I was there for a NP cuss they were booked for my actual Dr. But she ended up coming to see me anyways, that was awesome...

  • Everything was fine. Just don't think a few minutes on the phone is an appointment and paying a co-pay for that is wrong. I didn't have any blood work done, what's the point? If i were having problems, I would have called the office.

  • This was a very smooth visit. First time I used telehealth and it was easy and quick.

  • Nothing needs to change my Dr. Is excellent I couldn't ask for a better one and the MA are excellent also

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.
