  • Dr. Abadi is very good, knowledgeable, with great bedside manners. However, the front desk is one of the worst I've experienced. When I interact with the admin staff I always feel they are doing me favor. They often seem condescending. The information they provide is skimpy and sometimes incomplete. The system itself is often confusing when making an appointment. The time I am told on the phone is different from the time in the email I receive afterwords. I recently found out that they want the patient to arrive 15 minutes before the actual appointment. I also had a terrible experience once doing a heart sonogram. The technician did not have the right information. It was supposed to use contrast but she didn't agree with the doctor. Finally, they tried to inject the contrast but the nurse couldn't keep the line in my vein, there was blood all over, and gave up after two attempts. I would recommend Dr. Abadi to relatives and friends, but I would warn them about the rest of the staff in the office.

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.
