  • No improvement needed that I saw

  • On time and efficient

  • Everything was perfect ,very happy

  • This was my first time with Dr. Alwassia. He was extremely polite & started by telling me that he was fully aware of my medical history without looking at the computer. That showed me he looked at my records BEFORE meeting with me (not while I was sitting with him) so he spent the entire visit talking to me & looking at me & examining me. That is rarely the case nowadays. He was very concerned about my b/p and he actually called my primary while I was there to discuss it with her. He explained the tests he ordered for me and the possible results. Told me that once the results were in, we would have the answers & come up with a plan together. I want to thank him for his GENUINE concern and thank the staff for their kindness! I would give 20 stars if I could.

  • Dr. Alwassia is so very kind and patient. His bedside manner is superb. He ensures all of your questions are answered before the end of your visit. Dr. Alwassia seems knowledgeable and you leave feeling confident in the plan of care. Would recommend to anyone in need of a pulmonologist!

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.
