  • I was particularly impressed by Dr. Adelberg and staff, Dr. Adelberg immediately had a grasp of the issue that I was there to address. I, he dealt with it in a manner that explained exactly what my problem was. And provided me with the treatment that I thought was seemed to be more than appropriate and explained everything perfectly. And I would not hesitate to ever recommend him again, as a an orthopedist. He's absolutely delightful and credit to your organization.

  • Excellent

  • booked an appointment immediately

  • From beginning of my appointment until the end I was treated with respect from the doctor as well as the nurses, they was very concerned about my issues and explained everything to me so I understand

  • I felt rushed when in the room with the doctor. I expected to get another shot for my pain. I was asked it would be up to me weather I wanted to have surgery or deal with the minor pain that I have. I chose to deal with the minor pain. The doctor told me to continue to exercise. And that was that. In and out in about 7 mins. Also when I looked at his notes on my chart. He mentioned the pain in my left shoulder. And all along it is my right shoulder. It felt like a waste of time and money. I felt like he had more important things on his mind. That is just my honest opnion.

  • Entire visit was a completely positive experience. I will highly recommend this practice

  • Every contact was right to the point .loved the Doctors approach.informative and thoughtful and helpful.

  • I wish every doctor at Southcoast Health was like Dr. Adelberg. And, I wish every greeter/receptionist was like [Name]. Dr. Adelberg is engaging, funny, knowledgeable, proactive and patient-focused. And, he treats the whole body instead of just focusing on a specific part like many orthopedics do. Thank you. One suggestion is to maybe slow down a bit. He is so incredibly knowledgeable that it seems he's ten steps ahead of the patient. Patients have questions and need a moment to absorb what he's saying. [Name] was very pleasant, professional and patient-focused. It may seem like a small item and something everyone "should" do but when I was waiting in line and she had to leave her desk to escort someone somewhere in the office she acknowledged that I was in line and that she would be right back instead of just walking by me. Of course, I completely understand that she had to escort someone. She didn't just ignore the patient though - like so many people do. She made great eye contact and was friendly and efficient. Thank you.Also, [Name] in x-ray was pleasant, professional, efficient, patient-focused and skilled in taking images of areas that hurt to not further distress patients. Thank you.Kristen, the medical assistant, was also friendly, pleasant, professional and efficient. I did not see her wearing a name tag (one of my pet peeves of sorts) but she did introduce herself, which I like and appreciate. Thank you.My one suggestion for the office is that [Name] didn't seem to have the same friendliness and patient-focus that the others did. She seemed like she didn't want to be there and that patients were a bother to her.Dr. Adelberg, [Name], [Name] and [Name] are exemplary. I wish they could be my care providers in every office I go to. Thank you.

  • I was treated with courtesy. The problem was explained to me very well with the possible treatment outcomes. I was in sever pain with my diagnosis previously. The Dr provided treatment that instantly relieved my pain. I was so happy with the visit and I'm grateful the reception staff did everything they could to get me into to see a physician.

  • The doctor was knowledgeable and kind. He listened

  • Arrogant lacking empathy, continued with appointment knowing he was the wrong provider will contact my insurance to report his ruthless greed

  • Very thorough and had a great plan for my health needs .

  • Dr Adelberg is the absolute BEST!!!! Ill be so sad when he retires.

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.
