About Cassie Costa

Cassie Costa attended The University of Massachusetts Amherst where she earned her Bachelor of Science in Biology. Cassie then furthered her knowledge and expertise by earning a Master of Medical Science Degree at Tufts University School of Medicine. Her clinical interests include Trauma Surgery, Neurosurgery, Acute Care and Intensive Care.

Growing up caring for her father, who suffered from various medical conditions, Cassie not only wanted to make a difference in his life but also wanted to make a difference in the lives of others. After many years of studying she developed a strong interest in the position that a Physician Assistant holds in the medical community. Being a Physician Assistant has allowed Cassie to care for patients on the front line and address their medical needs early on.

Cassie’s philosophy of care is centered around providing compassionate and well-rounded care while helping her patients feel more at ease in stressful situations. It is her hope that her patients leave her with a full understanding of their health and confidence in the care and treatment they have received.

When not at work caring for her patients, Cassie enjoys staying active by playing soccer, going on hikes, kayaking and biking. She also enjoys spending time with family and friends as well as her two kittens.

Provider Ratings

Why aren’t there any ratings?

We do not have a rating for this provider for one of the following reasons:

  1. Provider was newly added to our survey process and has not yet received the minimum number (30) of survey returns.  Check back soon for results!
  2. If this provider’s biography page does not specify practicing at Southcoast Physicians Group or a Southcoast hospital site (Charlton Memorial, St. Luke’s or Tobey Hospital), he/she is affiliated with Southcoast Health Network but not employed by Southcoast Physicians Group.  Our affiliates are not included in our survey process.
  3. If this provider’s biography page specifies practicing at Charlton Memorial, St. Luke’s or Tobey Hospital, without reference to an outpatient practice, he/she delivers care in the inpatient hospital setting only; inpatient surveys do not include questions about individual providers.

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.
