Patient Comments (33)

  • Taking time for good listening and addressing concerns appropriately.

  • The staff starting from the time you walk in are professional in every way, they have a lot to do but give they give us the fastest service possible.

  • For an 11am appointment the wait time was at least an hour and a half behind schedule (perhaps longer) - this is becoming the norm. This is the second experience for an appointment at this time. No explanation was given by any of the staff or the doctor. From the conversations overheard in the waiting room, this is the norm. Face time with the doctor was less than 5 minutes (that is being generous). If the doctor is over scheduled because of unforeseen emergencies then they need to allot more time to catch up by scheduling less patients each day. If they are running behind because the appointments are running over then they should allow for that when booking appointments instead of having patients who are obviously in pain sitting for hours in a pain clinic waiting room, many of them in wheel chairs or dependent on public transportation, family members or hired transportation companies to transport them. Not only do these patients wait a month or two for each appointment, but they give up the better part of their day for this appointment for just a few minutes of face time with the doctor. All of this contributes to increased pain the following day and adding a few extra hours waiting does not help. This is a pain clinic - The least these doctors could do is respect their time and streamline the process so the appointments are on time. Then to be rushed through an appointment by the doctor after a long wait is also disappointing. That being said, the staff is always polite and when I have witnessed other patients complaining, the staff have never been rude to the patients. By comparison, I have never witnessed extreme wait times such as this this in other Southcoast facilities unless it was due to an emergency and the patients were updated.

  • I usually rate very easily and give a 10. My 7 is only because of the ridiculously long wait time this visit. It has happened before especially at the Dartmouth office. They need to schedule appointments more than 10 minutes apart. If something has come up since your last visit you need more time than that to discuss it. This starts backing everyone up. I didn't need even the 10 minutes myself this time. Just routine followup visit. But really, 10 minutes is ridiculous. I run into this in other South coast offices as well except my primary, [Redacted- about another provider]. Thank you.

  • I had questions for Dr Gorski she answered them very clearly now I understand more than what I did and I would definitely recommend your office to any of my family

  • Wait times in the waiting area are long.

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: Helpfulness of Clerks & Receptionists, 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.
