  • Overall experience was excellent, received the hoped for end result. My only complaint would be the cost. Reviewing what was submitted to my insurance a telehealth call that lasted probably at tops 5 minutes, charged insurance $238 seems a bit excessive.

  • Front desk were not very friendly and all staff left exactly at 5 when I was still there after composing my visit. Felt alone coming out of the appointment when no one was at the front desk to discuss next phase of care.

  • Check-in was good for COVID I did not have to wait long to see the doctor. I got the referral I needed.

  • The office had to reschedule my annual physical due to issues connected to covid-19. I realize the burden was unexpected, but it was concerning as a patient to go almost a year and a half without seeing my physician. In addition, I am also not a fan of the NP being the only option available when I had to reschedule my appointment. I had a family member who had a rather negative experience when she opted to see the NP earlier this year. Seeing your primary care physician should be the first option and not the second.

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.
