Patient Comments (14)

  • Everyone was very nice and helpful through the whole time at the office.

  • Everyone made u feel at ease and we’re very much courteous and kind:::

  • I am very impressed withSouthcoast. Everyone was willing to help and answer all my questions. They helped me with the paperwork I needed. I did not wait long to be seen by th Doctor. I was treated very well.

  • Great staff and great atmosphere

  • I have gallstones that came up in an ultrasound. The doc met with me for no more than 10 mins stating that I needed to get surgery without discussing options or side effects of the surgery. I left a little weary about having the surgery but went to the front desk to ask if I could get an EOB(estimate of benefit) for the removal of the gallbladder. She told me she didn't know what an EOB was and said I need to contact my own health insurance. I work in the industry and know that the patient should not have to do. Overall - not particularly pleased with my visit.

  • Going to the doctor, even for a follow up makes me nervous...This facility was easy to get to, kind front office staff, appointment on time and patience with my numerous questions of recovery and even finishing paperwork at end with conversation was calming. I appreciate the kindness!

  • I would recommend Dr. Collachio to family and friends who were interested in weight loss surgery.

  • My visit was quick and everyone was polite and helpful.

  • Smile more and better communication

  • The Communication is key

  • Everyone was very friendly

  • Wonderful first visit. The staff and doctors were so helpful and friendly. I was in and out in a timely fashion, honestly probably the fastest in all my visits to a doctors office. I look forward to my next visit.

  • Everyone was respectful and empathetic.

  • They are all extremely helpful and caring. Loved the experience.

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.
