  • Explained in detail options.

  • Very impressed with Dr Luc . My first visit with her, very friendly, polite, respectful, great bedside manners and above all I found her to be an EXCELLENT Doctor. She asked questions regarding my condition, ordered tests and gave me medication that appear to be already helping which no other doctor has ever done in my particular situation. It's very difficult for me to drive to Fairhaven, do wish she was located in Wareham but, she's outstanding and worth the pain of driving. Only met her once but can't say enough wonderful things about her. She really crossed all her T's and dot"s all her I 's. Best of the best as far as I'm concerned. Saw many specialty doctors in my yrs but none can compare.

  • All doctors should be as caring and knowledgable as Dr Luc.

  • Nothing love this provider

So I think she's amazing and you are very lucky to have her.

  • The front desk was excellent. She checked me in without issue, read the demographical information which needed to be confirned, and checked me out efficiently. I was not so impressed with the MA or nurse, [Name] She made me feel like I was interrupting her day. No good morning when she called me, no how are you, it was very abrupt, and less than pleasant.

  • My experience with Dr Luc has been wonderful. But Southcoast needs to recruit additional rheumatologist to the area.

A long time to wait when you are in pain.

  • Dr. Luc is absolutely fantastic. My only issues with her and the practice is that, because she's so fantastic, she is very hard to get an appointment with some times. For example, it is December, and they are currently booking appointments for next September. She's also an hour away. And because I live in [Name], most of my doctors are affiliated with [Name]u00A0Health Care, making it difficult for her to access my files and specialty experiences, most of the information she has is what I give her. That's not her fault. It's simply the fact that I'm using two different Healthcare systems, and there are glitches in your system in terms of getting lab results from [Name] Dr. Luc is absolutely fantastic. She's worth*

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.
