  • Everything was on time and I had no problems.

  • Hi after being away for a long time with this doctor I just appreciated that he was wonderful just like he was years ago. I really like him. I can't say I like him over and over again because I really do, he is the best. Thank you very much.

  • Dr. Adelberg is very down to earth and shows a humility rarely seen in doctors. I have vast experience with the medical profession and Dr. Adelberg stands out in my opinion. I also like that he’s not quick to prescribe meds or surgery. He strongly believes in less is more. A brief but heartfelt comment he made during my first visit was the catalyst that lead to my quitting morphine sulphate on my own. He explained that regular use of pain meds keeps one in pain. No doctor ever hinted at that before. I was motivated not only to get off pain pills but also to lose close to 50 lbs to date. I owe my self improvement to Dr. Adelberg, truly.

  • Great distancing at site

  • I arrived at 1:00 pm had xrays done on my knees. Saw the dr. , he gave me 2 shots and sent me on my way.I was back in my car by 1:21pm. I probably would have gotten there quicker if it wasn’t for my knees.

  • I had a good experience. The dr came in shortly after intake. He was kind and helpful.

  • Always an awesome experience with ortho team today I met dr A he was awesome very caring kind listened to my concerns and explained some stuff to me super nice man and the nurse she was extremely sweet to I would highly recommend them to anyone

  • I could not schedule my annual follow up because you don't have next year's calendar which means I have to remember to call the office next year for an appointment. Last year you had the calendar to schedule one year in advance. There is no reason why you can't schedule one year ahead. This just adds to my stress to remember to call in six months to schedule. At my age, I try to keep things simple. 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.
