  • Dr Gorski and staff .... esp... [Name] and [Name] were kind, personable, and listened to what I had to say!!! Great job ladies!!!

  • It would be great if my dr remembered what we discussed in my previous appointment (which was changing my meds) and knowing the previous meds I was on. We discussed switching my meds in my previous appointment because they weren't helping. Then I was put back on the same meds (that weren't helping) because the appointment was delayed by 5 hours and she said all the staff had went home and she couldn't get any information about what meds my insurance would accept. I called the office a few days later to make another appointment (because I wasn't satisfied with the unhelpful, short and late appointment previously) and found out that they had already scheduled an appointment for 2 months later. Very confusing to me considering we had discussed changing my meds and she said she would find out the next day what meds my insurance accepted and now my next appointment is being scheduled over 2 months later. I do like my current provider and would like to continue to see her but it would be nice if we were on the same page knowing what we discussed in previous appointments.

I couldn't be any more satisfied with what I receive, the care that I receive at South Coast, and in particular, Dr. Gorski has been above and beyond.

  • I can honestly say if it wasn't for Dr Gorski I would not be able to function the way I do. With her help I am able to go to work, able to do things with my family, able to just complete day to day tasks. She has always been there for me. Very attentative and understanding which many doctors lack today. She understands where you are coming from and determines your care based on her ability to treat.

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.
