I appreciated that they checked in on me and apologized. Also, when I was seen Dr Sousa was very thorough and took the time to listen to me. I'm very pleased with the treatment I received.

  • Fairly new patient to the provider. He spent time and explained in layman's terms regarding my illness I appreciate his caring

  • Everyone is very professional

  • Dr. Sousa is beyond awesome on every level possible. Compassionate, attentive to listening and answering questions and discussing my other medical conditions. I never felt rushed even tho end of day.

  • Dr. Sousa was very well informed as to my recent complex medical history and how it pertains to my current symptoms. I have been to other doctors who barely knew my history despite everything being in Southcoast's electronic med record from MGH. Dr. Sousa had taken the time beforehand to become well versed in my history instead of, apparently, only doing an over view and relying on me to convey all the information, as other providers have done. That approach makes it difficult and stressful for the patient to try to recall all this complex med information when at this point most patients are mentally drained. It was refreshing and very reassuring to experience an appt w/ a provider who was not only well informed of my history but who explained everything extremely well and unhurried. I have complete confidence that Dr. Souza left no stone unturned and I'm receiving the best care right here in[Name] [Name] versus any pulmonologist at MGH. Upon leaving my appt I called someone to recommend Dr. Souza to.

The visit with Dr. Sousa went well and he was extremely thorough and helpful, using terminology I could understand. I cannot think of any way in which this experience could be improved.I appreciate the virtual visit, since I am not easily able to get to [Name] [Name] and have concerns about Covid 19.

  • I think Dr. Sousa and staff are outstanding. I can't think of enough for the care that I've received since I started seeing them. The only critique that I may have is my appointment on the 19th. I waited about 20 minutes without anybody telling me that the provider was running behind. I had a check a couple of times myself. This has happened before I know that they get busy, but it's kind of nice to have somebody come out and tell me that it's going to be a while if it is, but I would recommend Dr. Sousa and the staff to anyone and I am so grateful for their care. Thank you.

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.
