He wasn't. Worst doctor ever. It's why I took pAtient to [Name]

  • Yes, I was kind of disappointed how long it took me to go see the provider. I waited in the room for over an hour and a half. So I was disappointed with that. So hope you can approve that time. Thank you.

  • KnowledgeableEasy to talk toPersonableGreat bedside manner

  • Best Dr in Southcoast. She listens and she completely understands my situation and manages my health in such a way that I haven't been sick with asthma in 3 years going on 4. She is proactive and helps me to prevent illness. She really really cares. I feel safe in her care.

  • My experience was excellent. I learned the exact nature of my medical issue with the service provided.

  • Congenial staff, physicians are both knowledgeable and personable. All went well.

  • I waited almost 30 minutes past my appointment time for the provider. I was even 10 minutes early. No one came to tell me she was running behind. I thought maybe they were waiting for me to fall asleep. No apologies. An simple apology goes a long way. I drove almost an hour for this appointment.

  • Left feeling I had received excellent care and a care plan was started.

  • I felt disrespected in the fact that I waited 45 minutes to see the doctor. She accompanied me to the outer desk, spoke instructions to the office staffer, and turned and walked away with no acknowledgement of my presence. There were no social skills practiced, and I did not feel any interest on the part of the provider. I will find an alternative provider.

  • This office was helpful and friendly, and Dr. Roderiques took adequate time for discussion. Negatively, this office has a time management problem. Appointments at this office are just guidelines, I never expect to be seen in a reasonable time.

  • Waiting time was longer than expected but was worth it. The staff was great and the doctor who I saw for the first time was very thorough. I would highly recommend Dr.Rodriguez. I also received a followup call from her staff the following day to let me know what steps were being taken to replace my c-pap machine.

  • Waited almost 45 to be seen.

  • Everything was fine

  • My provider was very thorough & professional at all times. My questions were answered in a way i could understand.

  • Other than no one being at the check out station for a while, excellent service so far. I haven't gone through the sleep study or follow-up appointments yet.

  • Covid delayed this appointment,,,,,,,

  • Everyone was so wonderful and nice plus professional. Dr. Rodrigues and the staff was outstanding!

  • Doctor preoccupied with an incoming phone call.

  • The telehealth visit went well.

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.
