At Southcoast Health, we strive to deliver exceptional patient care along with an exceptional patient experience. We appreciate all of your feedback and share your comments to recognize the wonderful care our teams provide to you as well as identify areas for improvement.

  • Very quick in and out service .

  • Well informed and took the time to go over my records previous to my visit

  • When I first met this provider, she had to inform me of a critical point that came up in a PET Scan. I had hoped my PCP would have discussed this with me, but she didn't, and sent me to this provider. This one explained everything very well to me and said my situation had already been discussed with my oncologist. They had a plan for my further treatment. I was very impressed with her delivering bad news to me on my first visit with her. This time things are under control and it was a more pleasant visit for me.

  • Good afternoon, I was referred by another doctor from Southcoast why I was there and what needed to be done. But even went through all the procedures and everything that could go wrong or right with my operation. She was informative and I truly loved her.

  • I have absolutely no complaints. Both the doctor and staff were professional, informative and patient. Thank you.

  • It was comfortable and supportive

  • Dr. Gleason did extremely well. I can't think of anything. Any shortcomings whatsoever from her. An excellent doctor is compared to many others that I've been to. Thank you.

  • Thoroughly explaining what will be done during my surgery plus what to expect during recovery was very important to me.

  • The doctor was extremely informed about my case, she explained the upcoming surgery in detail, and in ways that I could understand, she showed visual. So, I had a clear visual, of what would happen. She's extremely professional, polite and understanding, and the office was very well run and the the people who scheduled my surgery was very thorough, and accommodating, it was an outstanding experience and I will certainly recommend her to anyone who needs surgery.

  • Willing to contact my daughter, also my advocate, and explain the surgical procedure recommended. She did this very well.

  • Returning calls ASAP and the office personnel are fantastic.. I love this doctor. It's taken me honestly Years to find some that knows why they are a doctor and know my issues. I am so happy with her

  • Dr. Gleeson took as much time as I needed to explain my procedure and answer my questions. She was very supportive.

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.
