  • Very kind and helpful.Provided a visit with my heart doctor withinA few days to check out a few issues.

  • Just taking care of my concerns

  • Appointment was quick and on time

  • I have no words to express the performance I've been having on my experience. Abby (INAUDIBLE) done a hell of a good job. And I have no complaints. I am the most pleasant person in the way I did contact the service with me. I have no more the woods to say that the best the best care I've been having all my life. The providers been providing me with the all good. And the... I forgot his name. I mean, I I can't I have no words to explain.

  • I was able to get an appointment on the day that I called, grateful for that

  • It's always quick when I come here. Very pleasant & knowledgeable staff, always smiling.

  • I had a very good experience. I was listened to, questioned and my questions were answered clearly; all in a timely manner.

  • Very prompt and responsive.

  • Today provider was amazing helping me quickly and thoroughly

  • In the pass at check out they would set up any appointments needed for certain tests and no one did. I now have to call to make an appointment for bone density, mamo and blood work. As a curtesy I feel they should have set the appointments for me.

  • Everything was great.

  • Dr. Patrick is the most caring & attentive Doctor I've ever had the pleasure of seeing. She never rushes me & seems to genuinely care about my well-being. The office ladies are fast & efficient. I couldn't rate this place higher! Love my Drs office.

  • 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.

  • Yes, I had an appointment for 9:30 a.m, on July, 7th with Diane Patrick. I arrived about 10 after 8 with medical transportation. I went to the desk, told them that I was a little bit early, an hour. And if I could try to see her early and they told me that they were talk to the girls out back. And they would come out to take my vitals or stayed in about 20 minutes later. They put me in a room and the nurse inform me that she didn't know why they gave me a 9:30 appointment when Diane Patrick doesn't show up until 10, or 10:30 for her appointments. They put me in a room, and I was in the room until 5 after 11 before she came in. She took a 10 o'clock appointment and a 10:30 appointment, prior to coming to see me for a 9:30 appointment. I was very upset. I've been *

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.
