About Christian Petrulio

Dr. Petrulio came to Southcoast Health from Austin, TX where he was in private practice specializing in minimally invasive hand surgery. He is no stranger to New England, however, as he grew up in New Hampshire and graduated with honors from Harvard University.

Prior to medical school, Dr. Petrulio spent time with the Cheetah Conservation Fund in Namibia, Africa. He then worked with a group of epidemiologists in New York City to develop an HIV vaccine at New York University, where he later earned his Doctor of Medicine.

After completing his general surgery training at Columbia University-New York Presbyterian Hospital where he was the Chiron immunotherapy surgical oncology research fellow, Dr. Petrulio completed his hand and microvascular surgery fellowship at the Kleinert-Kutz Institute of the University of Louisville in Kentucky where he was involved in one of the first hand transplants performed in the United States.

Dr. Petrulio is board certified in surgery.

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.
