I Don't want my answers to reflect negatively on her staff because (I didn't go in to the office) they always treat me kindly and with respect.

  • I have had a consistently excellent experience at Southcoast with all staff and providers. The doctors and nurses are patient, friendly, knowledgeable and helpful on every visit. They seem to genuinely care if I get better or not!

  • My experience with Dr Luc has been wonderful. But Southcoast needs to recruit additional rheumatologist to the area. In June 2021, when I called for my initial appointment, except for the miracle of a cancellation, the appointment that I just had would have been the first appointment available for a new patient. A long time to wait when you are in pain.

  • Dr. Luc and her staff greeted me with a warm and friendly attitude, showing genuine interest in me not only as their patient but also as a human being. Whereas often Dr's visits are just routine experiences, with Dr. Luc I leave having felt truly cared for.

  • Special thank you to [Name] in Dr Luc's office. There was a problem with my referral for my appointment that day. She went out of her way to advise me at 9am and advised me how to get it resolved. It took a little over an hour and she held my spot until I could provide through my primary and BCBS the information necessary. Dr Luc and all of her staff are always professional, compassionate, and always patient motivated. It is a pleasure to share this review with management

  • Dr. Luc is by far the best provider I've ever had in my life time. Overall!!!

  • Need to be able to get appointments when doctor recommends not have to wait a year to get one.

  • My Dr.always takes the time to listen and care, helping me to feel better. Everyone there are respectful and helpful.

  • Any time I have had an appointment at this office the staff has always been courteous and kind. Dr. Luc has always treated me with respect dignity and always directed me to the best medical care professionally and been attentive to all of my needs. I'd gladly refer others to her for care.

  • 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*

  • Great Medical Staff and Reception.

  • Follow up appointment. I would have liked to had another in person and it was almost a year with do it, a been 10 months away to be able to, to schedule an in person visit again. And so I had to do a telehealth for to be seen in 7 months and I think year in my case would have been too long to do another appointment. So I had to telehealth and I would rather it be in person. That's my only comment, but it's difficult to get timely appointments in this office. Thank you.

  • Everyone has been awesome they listen and respond and make you feel like you are the most important person and your problem is top priority wonderful people

  • Dr. Luc is the best. She always listens to your concerns and explains things thoroughly.

  • Dr Luc is caring and listens to you. I love her.

  • Dr Luc is very knowledgeable, listens to you and determines what tests and therapies are best. Excellent doctor

  • Very accommodating, listens very well.

  • Everything was fine, and I did not understand the first couple of questions. So hope I didn't spoil the response. But everything there is wonderful, and I've been with Dr. Luc for years. Nothing, nothing could be any better than it was. It's so perfect. Thank you.

  • Listened to me an took care of the problems

  • The physician was very friendly, very informational, and she was very compassionate, which meant a lot to me, and I felt very comfortable explaining my health with her. Also, I think she's really good, and she could help a lot of people in the future. So I would recommend her 100%.

  • Very pleasant and informative

  • Dr. Luc always takes the time to explain things and listen to my concerns. Great doctor and person.

  • Everything was well.

  • I felt like a made a new friend. Excellent care . She was highly skilled and caring. Would recommend her to everyone

  • She looked on the P C,to find other DR, THAT I Had gone to and what they had done.

  • I always praise Dr Luc to my family and friends. I would refer to her any time. She has always seen me and addressed by concerns and issues when needed.

  • Dr. Luc is a great doctor.

  • THe signage for entrance and departmental locations is lacking The people who work there are not

  • Better communication from staff about why the doctor was more than 1/2 hour late for the appt. which was at 9am. The tech knew she was running late, but only said "she'll be in once she finishes with another patient." I would have appreciated being kept informed that there was a delay so I could let my workplace know and approx. when I would arrive. I also would have been able to decide if I was able to wait that long until the doctor was able to see me. I arrived early for the appt. in order to finish and get to my job as quickly as possible. I understand that things happen but it's unfair to assume patients are able to wait as long as it takes for the doctor to be available.

  • Outstanding doctor. She was up to date on all of my medical history. She always made me feel that she was focused on the process to elevate my current situation

  • The only thing is Dr. Luc's ask me to see her in 4 to 6 months and I don't have an appointment until May of next year. So, as 8 months out August. 9 months out instead of 4 to 6 months. That's the only problem like she's so booked other than that. Should be great, Dr. Thank you.

  • I thought Dr. Luc was an excellent caring doctor. She explaining everything to me and answered all my questions.

  • She's Great!

  • I made one mistake in the beginning where it said that they take you in a timely fashion. Yes, they always do but I thought it was going to say, hit one for yes, and I hit one and then it said that was. No, that's not what I meant. They are awesome Dr. Luc is a wonderful person. I actually look forward to my appointments with her. She is such a good soul and you can tell she truly cares and she remembers everything about me and I could not ask for a better rheumatologist. The staff is always very friendly. They get me in there right away. They're always courteous and ask if I need anything. So, I would definitely recommend. And I do, I tell everybody how wonderful my doctor is, so thank you very much her and Dr. [Name] I cannot be more blessed to have to wonderful doctors to watch me get old. I tell them joking around the charting my demise, but they are wonderful, and they take great care of me. Thank you.

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.
