  • Listened to why I was there and was patient with me

  • Everything has been an excellent job, the doctor, the secretary, the interpreter, everything has been excellent. Many thanks. I am delighted to have a super visit.

  • Hi, my survey may not have been that accurate, because I only had less than a half hour appointment, which was not enough time to cover much of anything. Dr. Somerto was in a rush and seemed rather distracted. And so it wasn't that helpful, an appointment for me. But I am going to go back because I think that was unusual. I don't know what was going on, other than they were short staffed, but for my first appointment and less than half an hour, was just not sufficient. And that's all I have to say. Hello.

  • Very professional, very informative.

  • I was listened to by the nursing staff as well as the doctor. I've been dealing with doctors for the last 40 years and have never felt like anyone has ever listened or cared to listen to me.

  • Doctor knew her stuff

  • My Dr always knows me right away and she has been my neurologist for years.

  • 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.

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.
