  • it was all good fast courteous .

  • Wait time was very minimal. All staff were friendly and professional.

  • Somebody gave me something that's good for the pain. At least I've got no pain.

  • My doctor left the practice and I was quite nervous with a new provider who was unaware of my extensive background. But she had read my file and was up to date on things! Dr. Gorski also listened to problems I experienced with a new medication given by my old doctor. She prescribed something new to help me. She is an active listener and she heard me. For that, I am grateful. Finally, she understood that, since I couldn't see my old doctor, there was no reason to go to Wareham from Warren, RI. She offered to see me in Fall River! That location is very accessible and, based on the positive experience, I agreed to continue to see her. I liked her very much.

  • Have been treated before with medication management years before I have been to this facility and have been treated with the upmost respectful doctor by the name of dr Gorski she is a outstanding physician I am a patient with extremely intense anxiety and I have digenrtitive disk disease and my back is broken across my lower back diagnosed by dr [Name] [Name] that wrote reports saying where my back is broken and cannot be fixed with any injections that to get any quality of life back I needed the medications that dr gorski has provided . She’s an outstandingly amazing doctor who cares about me as a patient and my general well being we have explored all options to help me have a better quality of life . She cares about me and that’s rare in doctors now a days she’s a 10 out of 10 the best there ever is I’ve tried taking less opioids to take less medications and she worked with me with different treatment options . How we can improve my experience would be to make me feel when I talk about needing medications it gets taken a little more seriously when I ask for something it’s only because I truly need it. We have tried taking less and will continue to take Iess the only form of improvement is the front office staff not being rude when I call to ask questions and when I talk about my medications I just don’t want to feel sad or scared to ask for what I need. But the bottom line is there is no better doctor I have ever met that is better than dr gorski she is the kindest and the best doctor southcoast has im lucky to her patient and she’s the only person that listens to me 10 stars

  • I appreciate my doctors because they seem to remember me well. They know my allergies without having to open my chart. They know me personally from being a member for so long with that particular doctor and I trust them with my life. So, I like the fact that they know me that well and know what I react to, what I don't react to, what medicines work for me, what doesn't work for me, how much pain I'm in, how sick I am, when I'm not sick, when I'm feeling better. They know everything and I trust my doctor.

  • Listened carefully to any concerns and felt that they answered any questions that I had patiently and thoroughly

  • I had been Dr. [Name] patient for many, many years and Dr. Gorski today made me feel at ease comfortable. She was pleasant.

Truly a great team of employees.

  • I don't think there was anything that you could've done better. Customer service was excellent. The doctor's bed side manner was superb. her... receptionist with attentive, and accurate, and they understood and asked me how I wanted to pay for my visit, and did I want to be billed and, I mean they just go beyond the call of duty. This is an... excellent facility, and I would recommend Dr. Gorski to anyone who is in pain and needs someone who understands. Thank you very much. I enjoyed my visit.

  • Dr. Gorski understood my predicament, made sure that I had the proper medication, and was taking it in the right methodology. Very good doctor.

  • I was waiting in the exam room for over 50 minutes before calling the front desk. Someone let me know that my doctor was held up with an urgent consult, which is fine because things happen that are no one's fault, but it would have been nice to be kept in the loop during this time.

  • She's very a good doctor. I recommend for my family and my friends.

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.
