Patient Comments (37)

  • Some questions were difficult to answer since I was only there for aprox 20 min. Hardly enough time to make a fair assessment.

  • I was very pleased they got me in within one day. I have always been treated with respect at this office Dr mello is great.

  • It was a mix up on my part I thought my appointment was for 11 AM since I did reschedule it , but it was for 11:45 AM even though I was early and not their fault I was running low on my oxygen tank ,but they did hook me up to one of theirs and I was all set . I see them again in 4 months and I will be on time and when I get there I will ask them to hook me up for the oxygen so I don't use all of mine . I am hoping that someday maybe the next visit he will tell me I no longer need the tanks .That is my Goal .

So my answer would be having an excellent and caring physician is what you did well.

They were very caring and recommended over the counter medicines that would not interfere with diabetes or high blood pressure. Very impressed.

  • Electronic records were missing from a colonoscopy I had in 2014. Luckily, I found the hospital discharge papers, at home. I called my dr's office and notified them of my last colonoscopy date. Hopefully, it saved my Dr valuable time, so he can do what he does best, rather than research medical records.

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.
