  • Phone system kept hanging up on me and the doctor. She has to call me back three times. Then she said she would send my meds to pharmacy an book my injections. It would have been better if there were no interruption.

  • Dr Gorskiu00A0is the best pain management Dr I have seen. We love her!!!

  • Dr. Gorski is always understanding and quite helpful on each and every telecast call. Thank you.

  • My telehealth appointment on September 2nd went very well. [Name] called me and was very pleasant as we went to the check in. My appointment was on time. It was to the point and covered everything I needed. Dr. Gorski is a very good doctor. Thank you.

  • Dr.Gorski has been my pain management Doctor for 20 years. I met her at [Name] [Name] 's hospital 20 years ago. She left to come to Southcoast Brain and Spine Center. I followed her to Southcoast. She is one of or the finest Dr's I have ever known and I have been disabled for 30 years now. Her team in the office as well as the team at the surgical center are top notch. I don't know what I would have done if I did not find Dr.Gorski. They are the hallmark of pain management programs in South Eastern New England.

  • Everything was fine.

  • Always professional and friendly.Always on time.

  • Even though I am not especially fond of tele-health, the visit does allow any issues to be addressed. I'm am always satisfied with the service I'm provided.

  • Everything was the way, it should be. The way a doctor should handle her patient, or his patient. Concerned about why they need her help, concered and talked about what medications would be best or right for them. And the bed side manner of Dr. Allison Gorski is more than excellent. If that's possible. She is a very conscientious conscientious doctor and very aware and caring of her patients. I wish doctors would were like Allison Gorski. She is one of a kind.

  • You can improve my ... my experience by opening the [Name] [Name] office, again. I always saw Dr. Gorski on a Monday. And I have to travel and I'm not well enough to travel.

  • I get a call back from the doctor after receiving a call from the office.

  • DR Gorski always takes the time to listen to your concerns, I rate her????????????, best pain doctor, glad I found her.!!!!!!

  • Excellent professional service

  • I really appreciate the continued ability to access a telehealth visit since I work 40+ hours and it is more convenient than having to drive to the appt, wait in the waiting room then see the Dr. It really saves me alot of time and I truly appreciate that. I think that everyone at the Pain clinic has always been professional and compassionate.

  • I pay a very high cost for these appts. My care plan is either never given to the doctor's staff or the staff is in incapable of following instruction. I have nothing but a bill between appts. Every time my follow up visit consists of me, the patient communicating to the doctor what the staff has failed to do. I'm sent off with nothing but another bill and a 4-8 week wait.

  • Dr Gorski is amazing! She is extremely compassionate, she goes above and beyond to attempt to alleviate your pain and make you more comfortable. She will work with the insurance companies to get procedures approved when they attempt to deny them

  • My husband has stage 4 lung cancer. He is in constant pain 24/7 damage from the radiation she got him in immediately onto her schedule offered options and he will be

  • I am very satisfied with doctor and facility.

  • Dr Gorski is wonderful!

  • You listen

  • Very professional. Answered all my questions with full explanations.

  • I've been a Patient of Southcoast Pain Management for 5 years, and have received World Class Treatment from Dr Gorski, as she is Super Attentive to my needs, and ALWAYS answers my questions regarding my Health!

  • I did not have this tele-visit appointment.I never received a call from the Dr. for my tele-visit appointment. I called the office twice since then and have not heard back from anyone.

  • Dr Gorski is very concerned about how she can help to relieve my pain and to call if there is anything she can do to help very pleased with her

  • My provider was respectful, knowledgeable, and approachable. I felt hopeful when I left that I was on my way to getting the right treatment

  • to this provider and staff. She was very thorough and did not rush me, because I have had some major issues and being the first time that I met with her, and I have so many problems, and she gave me the time to tell her as much as I could remember. Just her allowing me to do that, was surprising, because I am a very complicated case and most just don't want to deal with me. Being disabled, especially when it is rare and even many doctors have never had a patient with it, which gives me no one to turn to and ask questions to help me understand what is next. That is why it is so important that I am heard so the doctor or the NP, can do their best, to make me as comfortable as I can be. That was the second time that I have seen her and if my opinion matters, I hope that others can try her and find a plan, so they can do and improve their lives or for people like me know that we are not crazy and that someone cares! Those last words in the previous sentence, really, truly, honestly can give someone hope and that can make them keep on fighting because when they stop the timer ? goes on!

  • Dr gorski has been a life saver for me. She is very compassionate always listens and I thank God for her being one of my doctors she is the best

  • It would have been helpful if the provider had the time to answer questions, explain procedures, and inform this patient of the name of the treatment provided, ie the names of the injections given at this appointment. This patient left this first appointment confused and near tears. This was not a positive experience.

  • The wait time Should be improved. Thanks

  • 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.

  • Check in was quick and efficient, and my wait to see Dr. Gorski was brief.

  • The medical office from doctors to staff are incredible. I am grateful to have such a caring team.

  • Dr. Goriski is a wonderful and good doctor.

  • They were prompt, respectful, and my doctor agreed that I should have another injection. I am very confident about her opinion.

  • I usually speak with the NP. This time I spoke with Dr. Gorski and she was up to date with my back problems, etc. even though it's been a while since we have talked with each other. She's the best!!

  • First in person visit and I was very impressed. She really seemed to recognize my needs and was trying to help and wasn't judgmental. Frequently when you have pain relief problems medical personnel think you just want pain meds.

  • Yes, I did love the job you people gave to me. It was wonderful.

  • I am very blessed to have a Dr who listens to me to me. That is the most important thing, as well as the girls.

  • Dr. Gorski is a pleasure to have a doctor. The pre screening ladies are great too.

They're very very thorough when they explain things and I can't ask for a better doctor or provider and/or her staff.

  • Dr. Gorski is very good at what she does and explains everything. She has taken care of me very well since 2007. She knows my pain and does everything possible to manage it for me.

  • Very respectful, knowledgeable & helpful

  • Dr Gorski has helped me in so many areas. I am much better off with her being one of my doctors.

  • I've always been really pleased with my interactions with both the doctor and staff. I believe everything is done well.

Very attentive on getting tests and follow ups. I receive great care though South coast..... They stay on top of things. Which is much appreciated. Thank you.

  • SHES JUST AN OVERALL NICE PERSON AND SEEMS TO HAVE EMPATHY TOWARDS HER PATIENTS

  • When you first when you first started asking me the questions, I was pressing the wrong button. So if I could please have this done again, Dr. Gorski was excellent it and their office workers were just as excellent. So I apologize for pressing the wrong button. So I meant to press the much better numbers.

  • Dr. Gorski listened to the issues I've been having and we both know what I'm needing her to do. I called just the day before. I appreciated speaking to her so quickly.

  • I have no complaints whatsoever. Everyone at Dr. Gorski is helpful caring, and I don't know what I would do if I didn't have her and her staff to help me with my pain. So, thank you and happy New Year.

  • Everything was good

  • Yes, my name is [Name] [Name], and I have been Allison Gorski's patient for a number of years now. So, probably since she started. I've always been happy with the information that she gives me, if I don't understand, I'll tell her, and she'll clarify it for me. 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've been ill a long time and I'm anxious so I'm familiar with doctors, and she is tops. I, this, there's not enough to say good about her. She's wonderful and she's kept me alive a long time.

  • Dr. Gorski is always kind and respectful and very knowledgeable. My main complaint both telehealth and in person is the lateness of the appointments. She is very late very time, sometimes hours late! The scheduling should allow more time for each patient so this doesn't happen.

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.
