  • ALI took care of all my vitals and spoke to me in a very professional, friendly and calming manner..made me relax for the visit. Dr. Faber was exceptionally attentive..asked questions, looked at me while listening to my reply, accepted knowledge with respect, and I felt like a true partner in my own healthcare. He was very confident in his diagnosis because he had actually read through my chart and reviewed all my EKGs and other tests before seeing me! The office got me my appointment within 2 days and I was very happy overall with the entire experience. I am looking forward to more visits in the future at this office! Thanks to everyone who made my experience so good!

  • We've been with, I've been with Dr. Farber for going on 17 years and in all cases from Square One til today's meeting. He's been clear, thoughtful considerate. He considers options before giving us recommendations. If there's recommendations will rank them, you know, try this. And if there needs to be a change, he will give us a second alternative. Hey, we can't rate system high enough for the care that he is given me and he's been my wife's cardiologist for about 7 years and she feels exactly the same way.

He's very concerned about our health and I believe he wants to keep us alive longer than what we can stay. He's very ... really like visiting his office. They're very nice people, there and all the cardiologists for that matter cuz my husband goes, there also to another doctor, but I really like Dr. Farber a lot. Thank you so much. And have a great and healthy New Year ahead.

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.
