  • The phone was better for me so I don't have to go out of the house. She also listen tentatively the best she could but I think could have gone better was if you looked at my file because I go to SouthCoast doctors. And since I go to all SouthCoast that there's I think my file should have been reviewed as far as what that is. I've seen in the past 3 months so that she could in understand why I was calling for my thyroid condition that I had.I recently believe that the doctors she really should look at a patient's file before making a phone call before sing in patient as to what's been going on at least the last the past 3 months so that the doctor will know where we're at and what how the visit was needed. Thank you.

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.
