  • Great treatment!!

  • My experience was very helpful and I decided to continue my weight loss goals at the hospital but not with surgery. I will pursue the traditional diet and weight loss with medicine and whatever other methods are suggested.I am very pleased and hopeful !

  • As always this office staff were pleasant, courteous as well as kind.I called requesting an appt. with a NP but none available. A short time after getting off this call back offering me an appointment with a Dr. instead, which I accepted.They called again a short time later offering an earlier appt.As always this office makes me feel they care about me as a patient and individual.

  • Physician was knowledgeable took time to explain things. The staff was very courteous and friendly.

  • The wait to be seen is always too longI

  • Excellent first visit

  • looking forward to meeting my care team and help reach my goal. I been over weight all my life I went to overweight camp gained it all back then went to weight watchers gained it all back. this is the right choice for me in the long way to eat healthier foods

  • Services were less than satisfactory but I will continue to goAs that’s the closest doctors office there is.

  • Top notch medical office! Front of house staff always so friendly and efficient. I trust Dr. Colacchio implicitly and would recommend him to anyone. Always a pleasant experience.

  • It was great

  • Going to a appointment can be very stressful but that was not the case today. Everyone was very helpful and friendly. Which in turn left me at ease. The Dr. whom I'd never met before was also very friendly and helped me with my questions. Both staff and Dr. could not have been anymore pleasant or helpful. Thumbs up!!! Keep up the good work and thanks again.

  • I was stuck in Boston traffic and was gonna be significantly late and they waited for me and didn’t make me reschedule. I was the last patient of the day and no one had an attitude with me. I appreciated everything that was done for me.

  • When I actually got in to see a provider, the visit was great. However, I had a 4pm appointment but wasn’t taken into an exam room from the waiting room until after 5pm and my visit itself was roughly 15-20 minutes long.

  • Quick timely visit

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.
