  • All of my questions and concerns were addressed. The Dr. thoroughly explained my issue and made future plans for diagnosis and treatment. I had a great experience with Dr. Somerto. She was very attentive and compassionate. No complaints.

  • recommend a new cardiologist and set up an immediate appointment for blood work and reviewed my current medications and what i should be doing better

  • When needing a appointment, Have to wait month or two , to be seen.

  • From checkin to checkout all professionals are always great. Have been with Southeast for about 8 years I think and am glad to be moving closer later this spring. I have nothing but good things to say about my treatment from Rosebrook people.

  • Dr Somerto and HER staff are wonderful, [Name] is exceptional. The front staff at southcoastu00A0are NOT. I waited in line with no one in front of me while the people who check in had coffee, chatted, etc. My appt was at 8, I arrived early and front check in staff is not ready to support check in BEFORE an 8 am appt. I have to insist on paying my co-pay. I can often get appts if I specifically ask for [Name] BUT when I call the southcoast main line am treated poorly.

  • Dr Somertos the Best!!!!

  • The test was done quickly, accurately and the doctor was friendly and caring. She answered all my questions and explained everything.

  • Got to appointment was taken care of very promptly and very professional.

  • I was greeted almost immediately and in a very friendly matter, and then I only waited a few minutes before I was taking in to see the doctor. She listened to my situation and offered suggestions and follow up treatments, and I was very pleased. Thank you.

  • Inform the patient ahead what to expectWhat to wearNot to use any creams on the bodyHave an examine table with holders to be able to turn and moveHave an examine table at a lower height

  • Very knowledgeable & Caring.

  • Love this office

  • Beautiful, clean facility. Doctor was on time. Medical assistant who took my vitals was pleasant and professional. [Name] at check-in was pleasant, professional and made great eye contact. Otherwise, it was not a productive, patient-centered experience. One of the reasons I selected Dr. Somerto is because of her video on southcoast.org where she mentions the personal connection with her patients multiple times. I didn't feel this at all. I didn't feel much warmth or care from her. It took 4 months to get this appointment and I took half a day out of work. It was virtually a waste of time, in great part because Dr. Somerto doesn't/wouldn't do a key test that would provide further evidence for the diagnosis. The office has the equipment to do the test but she stated she only does the test on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. She knew why I was going for this appointment and yet I wasn't able to do a key test on the same day -- and it will be another 6 weeks until the next appointment. And, another half day out of work for me and 1 hour roundtrip. Also, the doctor's last appointment of any day is 2:30 PM. This doesn't seem like patient-centered care and great access and availability to care. At checkout when I asked for the CPT codes for the test so I could check with my insurance, I was told it "should" be okay. "Should" doesn't tell me anything about my insurance. Then, it was a frustrating experience of 3 office ladies telling me to call billing. I've gone through this before - going around in circles with billing, the office and the insurance company. It seemed like they didn't really want to help. Finally, after I politely asked multiple times, the medical assistant went and easily got the codes from the doctor. Also, except for [Name] at check-in, no one was wearing name tags or they had their name tags turned around so the name didn't show. Patients would like to know the name of the person they're interacting with. Overall, this was a time-wasting experience that was not patient-centered for many reasons. Thank you.

  • I felt comfortable with the service from the check in, the visit with my provider, and making future appointments in checking out... I was less anxious and felt confident in this visit today! I appreciate the excellent care and look forward to my next visit, thank you all!

  • Everything was done well and explained so I could understand.

  • Very thorough , knowledgeable, and kind.

  • Satified

  • Since it was my first appointment with the doctor I have no reference to say what to expect; but I have to say that the doctor seems to be very careful about and listening to me in in order to make a picture of my been the fist appointment

  • Dr Somerto is following up with all the concerns I have. I was very pleased with the visit.

  • The people at the front desk were polite, courteous and timely. The nurses aide was very polite, helpful and friendly. The doctor was exceptional. I liked being with her. She's very informative and informed about my case.

  • Could not understand the health care worker or the girls at the front desk because of the masks.

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.
