  • I have always had good experiences with the doctors, respiratory therapists, nurses, and front office staff at this practice. It's professional and friendly, and always helpful.

  • Very kind and professional when dealing with all staff including my provider. I was given inhaler samples so I could start it right away. Very thoughtful and helpful for them to do that. I'm very happy with my provider and staff.

  • The only reason I gave a 9, is because it was very busy there, thus my husbands appointment was later than stated. The Dr. was very thorough and helpful with my husbands issues. The office staff was friendly and helpful.

  • Dr. Was very, very thorough. She was very pleasant and explained everything in detail. Made sure I understood everything. My appointment went very well!

  • Everyone did everything in a polite, professional way. I am hard of hearing and they made sure that I understood what they were telling or asking me.

  • Firstly the technician that brought me to the office was wonderful. Doctor Rodrigues is an exceptional Doctor. She is very informative, she's professional, she answers all your questions. And I have to say that quite a few years she saved my life. So I'm very fond of her. I wouldn't go to anybody else. She is absolutely awesome.

  • The biggest problem I had was when I came in the recent was kind of prompt but wasn't all that nice and was very short with me. Also my experience with trying to get a sooner appointment because of my covid results being a couple hours late and the lady I spoke with was very rude when I tried to explain the ergancy of getting a sooner appointment I apologize but this actually was my worst experience there.

  • She didn't listen to me and had only one option for treatment despite everyone else saying that there are others

  • Dr. Rodrigues made the experience on the telehealth very personable. She listened to my concerns. She explained everything thoroughly. She gave me all the time that I needed. My appointment, I never felt rushed and I felt very comfortable with her. If I have any further concerns at any point, I can get in touch with her and she'll address my needs at that time. So I rate her highly and I would definitely recommend her to anyone.

  • Doctor was very inattentive to me. She seemed very interested and rushed.

  • My appointment was at 11:45. I did not get to see the doctor until 11:30. And got out, I mean, 12:30 and then get out of the office at 12:45. I waited 45 minutes. My time is valuable just like the doctor's.

  • Very kind, informed attentive and thorough

  • Nurse was excellent. I was left in a room for half an hour until another nurse came in, surprised I was still there and got what I think was a dr, she never introduced herself to me. Spent 10 minute's with me, more time trying to get her recorder to work to take notes. In the end, I got my medical clearance but if I needed real resp care, I would be worried about getting services here.

  • Dr. Rodrigues is always well informed, courteous, and attentive.

  • Everything was satisfactory

  • My 6 month check-up went very well. Dr.Rodrigues was attentive, clear explanations.

  • The staff called ahead of time to verify medications and current health which was good. The doctor was patient and answered questions and explained what to expect in the next appointment. Excellent.

  • You guys are very good.

  • Always very informative and helpful.

  • Everything was handled extremely well by the staff and the respiratory therapist as well as the doctor explaining and informing me accurately about the details related to my health. The entire health team needs to be commended!

  • First time provider, it's my first time going to her. The gentleman who gave me my test was very patient, and knew his job very well. Thank you.

  • Very good service

  • The actual call was an hour after my appointment time

  • Addressed me by name showed and explained my X-rays felt at ease asking questions.

  • Always tells me what I need to know.

  • Dr. Rodrigues always takes time to listen. She is a very understanding physician.

  • At the outset let me say that I prefer in-person with face-to-face interviews. However under the current circumstances (Covid-19)I can understand the need for caution. Now, I have always been satisfied with my visits with Dr. Cynthia Rodrigues--over many years. She is kind, caring, and conscious of my needs. She is knowledgeable and most of all I trust her.I look forward to the day when Covid-19 is no longer a threat and we can enjoy our personal interactions with our health care providers. Meanwhile I shall continue to recommend Dr. Cynthia Rodrigues to others when the occasion arises.

  • For years I have seen Dr Rodrigues- But not once no matter what time my appt is have I ever been seen either close to my original appt time but further yet merely over an hours wait- This time for my results I chose to do the Tele phone option- My appt was for 10:15 , yes the medical assistant called- but my initial call was around 11:45 - I truly do not understand less patients especially at a time like this -why always so so late- I myself sit either in a room at a doctors office or at home anticipating results or any type of visit you lose that concept of that visit- More time waiting than the actual contact.

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.
