Patient Comments (19)

  • She talks with me and answers my questions!

  • less wait time

  • Attention. Care. Thoughtfulness. A wonderful staff in every way.

  • The provider, Dr. Rodrigues, seems to be a good doctor. However, each time I have had an office visit with her I need to wait on average two to three hours before being called in to see her. On separate occasions I have actually seen patients leave altogether because of the frustration of waiting (complaining of being ill or losing too much time from work themselves). This last office visit While waiting another patient actually fell asleep and took a nap. The doctor needs to change how she sets up her appointments to see patients on time.

  • The experience was good.

  • There is always a wait time, regardless of whether you're early, on time or late. Doesn't matter if you have the first appt. of the day or any other time. There is usually a 5 - 10 minute wait in the "waiting" room, then, after vitals are taken by an assistant, another 10 - 15 minute wait until the doctor arrives.

  • One hour past appointment time before I as seen.Not very personable approach.Don't understand why I need to see provider so often.

  • My provider did not listen at all. I repeated myself multiple times and she showed no concern with my symptoms expressed. I am considering not returning.

  • Everyone was courteous and helpful

  • Every thing was fine.

  • I understand that unexpected delays happen all the time. I understand if I have to wait an hour past my appointment time if the delay is communicated properly. What i didn't appreciate was not being told that I would have to wait and then feeling rushed through my appointment and feeling like I was an inconvenience.

  • very helpful and could not be more pleased about the visit

  • Dr. Cynthia Rodrigues is always most gracious and most helpful in answering questions and in making suggestions to help me address any problems which might arise about my asthma. She has been my doctor of choice for many years and, yes, I have recommended her to many other people who I considered might benefit from her service. In rating her I would definitely give her a score of A+ [Name]

  • All good.

  • facility is old, dated.

  • I waited 1hour in the waiting room followed by a 45 minutes in Dr office

  • My time is very important to me. Every visit to this medical office I have incurred a lengthy wait time. The wait time is not related to any medical emergency by the attending physician. I expect to be treated with the same level of respect as I return to the staff. Excessive wait time do not demonstrate a respect for patients

  • As a new patient i was very well accepted all the staff polite and professional

  • Everyone in the office is courteous, friendly and professional. I have no complaints.

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.
