  • Dr. Luc is wonderful. She's very thorough, a good listener. She was prepared for my virtual meeting and I had no problems at all with her. I would say 10, 10,10 all the way across. The only issue I had was I was told it was 11 o'clock, and when I called the office because I did not receive the call by 11:20. They they the secretary said to me your scheduled for 11:20, and she's running late. So I didn't get the call back until 11:30. That was the only negative experience of this virtual visit. Otherwise it was perfect. Thank you.

  • Dr. Suzelle Luc and her office got back to me right away. I was contemplating surgery and I had seen a specialist but I wanted to know about my Arthritis and how that would be affected.

  • Visit great

  • Everything from Soup To Nuts was perfect, I go to call about 2 hours prior to the visit scheduled time - maybe even 2 1/2. Office is very polite, made sure that I was all registered, and went over the process of the TeleHealth - which is actually the video health visit. VideoHealth went very smoothly, Dr. Luc is exceptional. She got test ordered from another with conversing with another provider, all of that scheduled and set up very promptly, and I can't say enough about how wonderful it has been to be a patient of Dr. Luc's and including her office staff. Okay. Thank you.

She can get me give me so I can't say enough nice things about her.

  • I love Dr Luc but the office was disorganized. They had a different patient name and date of visit when they called to confirm appointment. Paperwork that apparently I needed prior to having specialized blood work was not with my visit summary do oncology had to run around trying to get it done.

  • Dr. suzelle Luc treats you as a person. I was glad to be there

  • Dr. Luc is a very positive encouraging person. She listens to everything, she gave me manageable information to understand, she spoke to me not as a doctor, but as a person it's been asked 3 or 4 times now, and she's just she's an excellent doctor and very caring to her patients, she listens thoroughly.

  • Dr Luc is a very compassionate physician. She takes the times to listen and cares about her patients.

  • Very concerned and asked me all about my health.

  • Getting in to see the provider is normally a 4 to 6 month wait, even when you are an active patient or client and have ongoing progressive diseases so waiting 6 months to have your needs addressed is not the most ideal when someone suffering in pain they needs to be seen they needs to be I've been told the 2 year. This is going to be other people in the Rheumatology department and it's been this way for 2 years. So my 3 month appointment it's now 5 1/2 months out. So if there's a way to get that so that it's not such a big deal. That would be great. Thanks.

  • Dr Luc is the best!

  • Saved me the 30-40 minute wait we usually have in going to the office. I was called just before my scheduled time, given the option of a face time visit which I declined, Dr. Luc took the time to check my records and history, and my visit ended on a positive note.

  • Dr luc is the best!!

  • She was great. She knew my history. She explained a lot of stuff the staff at the front desk was great. No problems. The only bad thing was was that it was supposed to be at a certain time, and it was backed to like behind, but that's okay. She's great. I like her and that's about it. So I'm going to give her a 10 for everything. Okay. Bye.

  • This was a Telemonitor visit on the phone, and it went well. Thank you.

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.
