  • Timely appointment visit , doctor very receptive to questions and made good recommendations.

  • Dr Patrick is a complete Angel so kind and very caring just love her

  • I have been a patient of newly retired Dr. [Name] for over twenty years and, at my age, choosing a new primary care doctor is difficult choice. However,I am pleasantly pleased at my choice. Dr. Patrick made me feel comfortable, listened to my concerns, made constructive suggestions and gave clear explanations.

  • This was a wellness visit but I did have some health concerns so I was hoping to get those addressed. When I checked the Mychart information it said the referrels made were "requested" which concerns me as I thought Dr. Patrick recommended these treatments. It made me wonder if my insurance will cover them. She also recommended I change a medication but never prescribed the new one. There are errors in my chart (I am not 5'2" I am 5.6" that I have tried to get changed since I came to Southcoast but it is never updated. Also, it doesn't show my booster shot information and I tried to get that entered while I was there also) I feel as though there is no continuity between my previous medical history at Signature and what I am getting now. Overall the switch to Southcoast has not met my expectations. Both my daughter and my sister are nurses so I understand how overwhelmed the healthcare system is right now but while the support staff are very nice I don't feel my needs are being met.

  • Never made me feel rushed I felt listened to.

  • The appointment was at 4:00 and I was taken immediately the questions I had for my provider we're answered, and I had a wonderful visit with her and I would highly recommend her to anyone. Excellent, excellent appointment. Thank you.

  • Eased my health concerns.

  • Listening, caring

  • Problem solving at its best

  • Everyone was kind and friendly.

  • i have no complaints, i just went in for a sick visit and it was not my provider, but she was nice.

  • Everything went well

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.
