  • I was very satisfied and extremely happy with Dr. Charest and staffu00A0

  • Dr Charest is a very kind, intelligent, caring and honest physician and human being.

  • A pleasant visit every time

  • Very prompt answering from My Chart and Dr Charest is the best, love her!

  • I wish everytime I needed to see a doctor it was this smooth. I send a message in MyChart and within 20 minutes the office was calling to schedule for an appointment. Within the hour I was at the office being seen by the doctor. She listened to everything I had to say and was thorough in her response on how I should move forward with my medical issue. Would recommend this doctor to anyone looking for a new doctor. She's knowledgeable, easy to talk to, and doesn't use jargon that's over your head. This is probably the best doctor's visit I've had in a long time.

  • Everyone was professional and kind! Dr. Charest is fabulous, very intelligent.

  • Dr Charest is great. She listens, appears concerned, and has excellent follow-up. My one complaint is that when I scheduled next year's wellness checkup, I was told that she's completely booked - a year in advance. Now I have no issues with the nurse practitioner, but this seems crazy. Would have preferred Dr C as we have a relationship. Just saying...

  • I love Dr. Charest because she answers any questions I have which I always have because I want to know if I'm doing everything correctly. Never had any problems at all (so far). If I do don't worry I will let you know. I just have to wait my turn like every other one.

  • Very friendly and professional, also explained everything in easy to understand terms.

  • Dr Charest was so thorough and caring. I am so happy to have her as my PCP. The staff was wonderful as well. Thank you!

  • While waiting for the doctor to come in , I overheard a conversation between staff. Everything they said was positive n how much they enjoyed working with this doctor. I totally agree with them and feel honored to have her as my physician. I've had others but only one other doctor that I have known that I would truly miss in so many ways if they were to leave. Please take care to keep her with us.

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.
