  • My experience at Southcoast during my recent visit, and all past visits has always been excellent. As an aside, kudos to your Covid 19 vaccination program, The manner in which it is being conducted clearly sends a message to Southcoast communities that Southcoast listens and understands the needs of its elder community in regard to accessing vaccines, and in general that it cares deeply about the well being of people in general.

  • I came in because 2 of the 5 Specialists I was seeing about an ankle issue were telling me I had high blood pressure, of which I was unaware. The doctor simply wanted to address the fact that I had no high blood pressure but didn't ask about what the Specialists had deduced in treatment for my ankle. He made another appointment in three months to check my blood pressure at which time we can also discuss my options for revision surgery on my ankle.

I left the office basically feeling like we are on our own.

  • Long hold times when I called to book the appointment. Otherwise the staff and Dr Fitzpatrick are awesome!

  • I have been a patient of Dr. Brian Fitzpatrick since he began his practice. He has always been a good match for me as a primary care doctor. Together we have established a long and comfortable communication. It has not always been easy for me as I am a homeopath and naturalist.

  • Dr. Fitzpatrick was very thorough and took a lot of time to explain the situation to me.

  • The problem I have a little bit with Dr. Fitzpatrick is he talks very quickly and at 83 years old, my hearing isn't quite as good as it was when I was much younger - and secondly with the mask on top of that, thee annunciation of certain things when we're talking back and forth, I have to keep repeatedly asking him a question about what he said - because he talks so quickly and he talked quickly before we had the mask. So that's just his way of expressing himself - I don't know what one can do about it - but it would be helpful if he could slow down his conversation when he's giving us answers or giving us advice. I guess that's my main concern about*

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.
