  • Dr. Addo is always knowledgeable, kind, compassionate and always excellent listener. She in my opinion is really vested in doing her best for her patients. She does not rush a patient and tailors her comments to be certain the patient understands what he or she has, what can be done to treat the problem. I had an appointment(this one) for a Wellness visit, but my wife had some type of seizure and I asked to replace me with her for this visit so she could be seen. Dr Addo immediately added her to her schedule and took both of us in. Since we first met her when our PCPu00A0 retired, she has been there for us and I cannot say enough about how thankful my wife and I are to have her.

  • Dr. Addo did a wonderful job helping me with understanding what was going on with my health. And I appreciated that a great deal. She always is very thorough. So she was certainly like that today. Everyone in the office was pleasant. People who helped me get on the scale, everybody, even the check out kind of thing. Everybody was helpful.

  • no room for improvement.

  • All went well in a timely manner and the test were performed in a relaxed environment.

  • My sister who has a disability and had back to back appointments. We arrived a half hour early and I was immediately called in but said I was not yet available because our mother was meeting us to chaperone my sister. The medical assistant was impatient and rushed us. As soon as my Mom arrived again I was called in and asked if I filled out my form . I had not had a moment to fill it out again she seemed impatient. I felt so rushed and unimportant like she was dying to get out of work. My oxygen level was 86 and not checked again. Again showing total lack of interest if her equipment was working correctly I've never been lower than 98. The kicker was when she said my doctor was in a telehealth appointment and would be with me when she finished. So why the annoying rush. So I was taken in aggressively early yet sat until 5 minutes after my scheduled appointment to meet my pcp for the very first time. My pcp was great! Very attentive.The experience before was unnecessary and annoying.

  • Listened to my concerns and helped to address my issues.

  • Dr Addo took her time with me. Asked about all my care even from other providers. All aspects of my life, work, sleep, surgery ahead. I felt heard and I felt compassion from her

  • Dr. A. Addo is always very attentive and thorough.

  • No complaints

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.
