At Southcoast Health, we strive to deliver exceptional patient care along with an exceptional patient experience. We appreciate all of your feedback and share your comments to recognize the wonderful care our teams provide to you as well as identify areas for improvement.

  • Hi, this is my first (INAUDIBLE) online or basically over the phone check out and I found it to be quite awkward was not the physicians fault, but I just didn't feel like it's a very thorough exam and it's a little bit awkward conducting a conversation that way, it's much more effective be able to talk face to face in the office so maybe that gets better when time goes along but I don't think it's going to be the way for the future.

  • Seeing as this was my first “tele-visit”, I was very impressed with timely telephone registration, medical assistant call, 1/2 hr earlier than scheduled provider call, AND follow up survey call. Wow! Southcoast Physician Groups has it all together. 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.
