  • The visit was perfect

  • Onschedule...much appreciated.

  • I was seen in a very timely manner. This provider is very responsive to messages on MyChart and the messages are answered usually within no more than 4 business hours. The attitude of the office staff AT THE FAIRHAVEN OFFICE leaves a lot to be desired when calling in and asking questions. They are less than pleasant. This applies to those who answer the questions, not those who answer the phone. It is a frustrating experience to call in and ask a question AT THIS OFFICE. The situation is not the same when going to the office. The provider is very knowledgeable about my complicated case.

  • Longer than normal wait to see Dr. LaRock. However, I always feel he spends enough time with me so assume he was simply being attentive to another patient.

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: Helpfulness of Clerks & Receptionists, 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.
