  • 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.

  • Everything was done very well.

  • The Doctor is the best she makes me feel good about myself she's wonderful u can tell she loves her jobu00A0

  • everyone was pleasant and helpful no wait time and very professional

  • Everyone was.very professional. My experience was good.

  • No complaints at this office visit !

  • No more telehealth! There is no substitute for in-person office visits.

  • Dr. Luc is fantastic. She has been treating you arthritis for quite some time now and she really knows and understands what I go through on a daily basis and treat my condition accordingly. I trust her whole heartedly. Thank you, [Name] [Name] Sr.

  • This is first time that I've had any dealings with Dr. Luc, she's wonderful. I can't say enough about her. She was very informative. Very kind did not rush me. It was a pleasure being talking to her. I will be seeing her in the office and looking forward to it.

  • The office staff is very friendly, thoughtful and efficient. Dr. Luc is excellent!

  • Dr Luc is extremely professional

  • The experience was wonderful. It was easy and saved valuable time. No waiting or unnecessary exposure. Honestly, even prior to COVID, that was always a concern. I hope that vitual visits become part of creating a plan of collecting diagnostic information prior to evaluations and reviews at office visits. It would be wonderful to be told that you need to schedule diagnostic testing, and then have to return to discuss the findings. I have always felt it would save so much effort if we could have our bloodwork and necessary information available prior to our appointment. That would also give the Dr. the opportunity to review any pertinant infomormation and set up any other important tests that might help expedite and resolve any health issues.

  • I believe Telehealth visits facilitate the need to isolate one from the other during the Covid outbreak but, it is my fervent hope that the practice will revert to in person office visits as society is able to return to normal. It is much easier when asking and answering questions to see the expression and eyes of the health care provider and to be able to point and to and explain the problem while trying to verbalize answers to a doctor's questions.

  • Always love to come see DrLuc!

  • Good doctor. Knowledgeable.

  • Dr Luc is wonderful on top of my issues thoroughly. She is warm,engaging, concerned and met my need of a Prolia injection and bone density exam.we have a follow up appointment in two months.

  • Everyone was professional, efficient, thorough, and capable.

  • Dr .Luc is fantastic, she is compassionate and really shows how she feels about her patients… just love her

  • Excellent Doctor...I know she is busy, but always takes the time to answer my many questions.Up to date on all information.Kind, and understanding.

  • This was my first experience with Telehealth and meeting Dr.Luc. Dr. Luc was supportive and knew my health problem. Within a few minutes, she ordered tests, explained things in detail, and made me feel hopeful about controlling my pain. I was extremely impressed with her caring attitude and I never felt rushed.

  • First visit went well she told me all I needed and was very nice

  • Dr Luc was very patient. I would have preferred an in-person visit but was lucky enough to get this televideo cancellation in a timely manner.Southcoast needs recruit additional rheumatologist. My original in-person appointment was scheduled for next January!

  • Long wait 1 HR to long

  • Dr Luc and her staff are amazing. From start to finish I was satisfied with their professionalism. Dr Luc is great at her profession. Great experience over all.

  • This Dr is completely booked and made time for me being a new patient. She had me in her office within a weeks time after finding out my history. She had xrays done that day and ordered labs. Her nurse practitioner was great also

  • Staff was welcoming and helpful. Dr. Luc is awesome! She always answers my questions. As well as helps me with any concerns. Most of all she listens to me and helps address what issues or concerns right away.

  • My only complaint is that I was on time/ 10 min early for my appt and was not seen until 20 min after the scheduled time.

  • She was very nice and paid attention to my needs

  • Dr. Luc is so kind and understanding , she really makes sure she understands exactly how I am feeling and is very thorough in my medical treatment , as well as progression of health conditions . She is outstanding !

  • Yes, just taking the time to treat me with respect, to listen to my concerns, and not rush the appointment whether it be televisit, or in office, and to get back with a timely manner. The same day, if possible, just to know the status of what might be going on.

  • Dr Luc is a good listener and a good communicator

  • This was a great office, girls there were really nice, everyone really nice and professional. The girl that brought me in the room, very nice, very professional.

  • My appointments seem to get moved often. DrLuc is great but the girl you make your appointments with , needs a definite attitude adjustment. I put my purse of the counter so I could put my new appointment in my phone and she started pointing to the sign that says not to lean on the counter. I said that I was not leaning. Also I didn't know she was in a call and started saying when I need my next appointment. She did not look up or acknowledge me. She could have put a finger up or pointed to her headset or told the person on the line to hold a second. She should have done something. She was the same way the last time I came in. I was going to send Dr. Luc a note regarding this girl.

  • Dr. Suzelle Luc is Intelligent she listens, she looks she recognized on my arms that there was something I didn't even know is there. She told me about it and stays in touch with all my other doctor's to make sure I have care for the whole person. She listens very carefully and then she tells me what she thinks and what she plan what her plan is. We work on it together.

  • Dr Luc has always been a great doctor and has continued to show me she cares about my health. Today was a perfect example of how great of a doctor she is. She took a lot of time to hear my concerns she personally reached out to other doctors to confer with and helped set up appointments so I could get the best care possible. Her medical assistant was kind knowledgeable and positive. Her receptionists were on top of all the paper work I needed and explained my instructions while being kind and professional. I believe everyone in this office is an asset to any health care group and to all patients! And no, I wasn't paid to write this :) I don't leave many reviews (I'm sure my history of reviews can be checked) but I just happen to have an urgent issue while being 6 weeks pregnant and on a tough day I was relieved to be treated with continued individualized empathetic care by skilled knowledgeable professionals.

  • Dr. Luc is just my favorite doctor. I just love her and she's always so kind and compassionate and she answered every question and she gave me a lot of information and I missed not seeing her in person because I really enjoy talking to her. Thank you.

  • Very pleased with Dr Luc, she was very helpful, very caring and understanding about my concern of the cost of medication. I have to be careful as I am on many medications one a blood thinner. She assured me they would find something that would help the pain and something I could afford.

  • (INAUDIBLE) excellent at what she does and her staff are very efficient. However, they're very busy and it can be hard to get an appointment. Thank you so much.

  • I had 2 special lab tests to do but when I went to the lab they told me they can't do the tests after 2 PM due to FEDEX not picking it up. I wish someone had told me this beforehand.I am exhausted.

  • Very professional and easy to talk to

  • This was my first experience using telehealth. My questions were answered, but somehow I feel that viewing the person tells so much more and something could have been missed. Telehealth is great for in-between visits.

  • Great doctor, kind person

She's very curious good at what she does and she really shows a lot of you know patience and and she got the job really good. I have no no problems with her. She does everything thorough and if you get me the right medications.

  • Office staff did not get back in a timely manner. Had to call back 3 times to reschedule next appt.

  • Dr Lucu00A0been awesome with me. I have been in pain for a long time. My previous Drs did nothing but give me pain pills. Dr Lucu00A0took the time to find out what was causing my pain and has been treating me accordingly. Best thing I ever did was go to her for help.
