  • There is nothing that could be done to improve my experience I went to my primary care physician for my 90-day check up and he was very concerned about my overall health as always he took the time to listen to my concerns and made sure before I left that the girls who schedule found me a specialist that is necessary Dr keigwin has been an outstanding doctor and has actually become a friend and confidante as well as my primary care physician I have great respect for everyone who works in this facility and they always make sure my needs were met or exceeded before I leave for my next appointment I would highly recommend this doctor and his associates to anyone looking for a very good and caring primary care physician I give them all A+

  • The staff is so wonderful and caring. I am so grateful.

  • Very informative and helpful on the steps I need to improve my health.

  • Dr. Keiguan is the most caring, sensitive (to patients with special needs), thorough doctor I have ever dealt with. The only negative is his inability to accept many different insurances, including a specific Tri-care prime insurance and state Medicaid. It's unfortunate that so many patients cannot receive his one of a kind care.

  • They are the best in my opinion

  • Helpful when lab closed to get blood work elsewhere.

  • Very good to excellent attention and service all around. Everyone was friendly, yet professional, and willing to listen, as well as share info, or consider alternatives. Also maintained a relaxed, and unhurried manner -- taking the time needed ...

  • Provider is fine, but silly tests with drawing clocks, remembering words, etc. I have to be tested for competency just because I'm now 65?

  • The office staff , the nurses, the CNAs, and the doctor were friendly and extremely professional. I am very anxious about visiting the doctor's office, but this office makes it a good experience

  • Always very kind and patient. Listens well.

  • Dr Keigwin and his staff are awesome! I am completely satisfied with my primary!

  • To be fair this was my first visit to this provider. It was Friday afternoon and most likely it had been a long week for them. Half the staff was good, friendly, generally seem concerned about me and half the staff seemed overworked, tired and a bit ill tempered.

  • I have been going to Dr. Kiegwin since he started his practice in Tiverton. He knows me well, and I really like him !

  • Staff is always friendly and helpful. I was seen on time by my primary care doctor and he addressed my needs and helped me to set up an appointment with a specialist.

  • Perfect Visit

  • Doc K really listened to me. He looked through my chart and used it to make an informed decision. I trust him and that is why I come back

  • I have been with Dr Keigwin's office for over 30 years and he and his wife are terrific.Their front office staff are horrendous. I have spoken to Scott about this and he has told me there is nothing he can do about this because South Coast provides the front office staffing.You people are clueless.If you would like to meet in person and discuss this you can reach me at

  • Excellent provider and staff; would have preferred shorter wait to see doc after nurse took vitals.

  • I would like to have been asked to have my blood work done prior to the appointment so that I could have discussed the results with the doctor.

  • The lady that came out to my car to test me was very helpful and very nice. Dr. Scott Keigwin was very informative and helped me answer quite a few questions. I really appreciate his insight.

I'm very impressed with the caring,compassionate and experienced staff and their quick response today.They got me in for an appointment due to a concerning health issue, which both surprised and impressed me! I will highly recommend this particular location to everyone.

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.
