At Southcoast Health, we strive to deliver exceptional patient care along with an exceptional patient experience. We appreciate all of your feedback and share your comments to recognize the wonderful care our teams provide to you as well as identify areas for improvement.

  • Dr. Erica Mello is a great doctor. She always takes the time to answer any question I may have more important she uses words that I understand. She is so considerate with your wellness.

  • My telehealth appointment with Dr.Mello was extremely efficient and effective. Dr.Mello answered all my questions and was able to order my lab work and prescriptions without issue. This provider was kind and took her time to get to know me which was appreciated. I would definitely recommend.

  • Everyone one in this office was pleasant and respectful. Appointments are generally on time. Perhaps it would be helpful if patients brought with them a short list of questions/ concerns that could be given to the doctor at the beginning of the appointment that would help the doctor assist a nervous patient I know time is precious and thought this might be productive.

  • I was on time, but the Dr was running about half hour behind other than that everything was excellent

  • This was a new patient appointment and I was very pleased with the office, staff, and provider. During check-out, a follow-up appointment was made for me including lab work. I am looking forward to my next appointment with Dr Mello.

  • Dr Mello and her staff are awesome! Plain and simple... Just awesome!

  • Was a very nice experience

  • She listened to me. She explained the course of first Medicare check upI was thinking I should finally get my first colonoscopy but was told I wasn't due till next year as I did a cologuard test couple yrs back- even though they lowered the age of recommendations for colonoscopy. I now work as nurse in endoscopy and see many pple with multiple polyps. 1 patient went from 3 to 19! I think occult blood is a late sign right? Why would I not be eligible for my first colonoscopy? That doesn't make sense to me. The doctor was great. I like her a lot. She doesn't make the rules. But the price of colorguard is lot less than colonoscopy

  • Beginning with the check in, ending with the check out, and --most importantly-- services in between, Dr. MELLO and the staff at this location were excellent. Dr. MELLO is my top choice for a PCP on this area, and I'm so glad that she was chosen for me. The staff was professional, efficient, and kind.

  • Everything

  • Nothing to improve on. I felt my visit covered all bases.

  • Dr Mello is a gem. The staff are rock solid. Treat them well and keep them with Southcoast, please!!!!!

  • Well, it was generally a good experience and I feel lucky to have this as a health provider. I noticed the new girl at the front desk was very efficient and have a great articulation and an intelligence and I think that helps to have people in the reception area who could speak well.

  • All of the staff was nice and respectful. I was a little uncomfortable that I was made to change my cloth mask to a paper one.

  • It was my first time at this office there was a mix up with my appointment I think that I was never put into the schedule that I had arrived for my appointment? But that's ok things happen the dr was excellent the staff that did the intake before the dr came in also excellent

  • Professional and courteous describes my visit

  • Dr. Mello is an excellent provider. She always takes the time to listen and provides a thorough CPE. I have, and will continue, to recommend her to family and friends.

  • When Dr. Simpson left, I was devastated. I'd been with her since 18 years old and I was worried about who was to take her place. I am so happy Dr. Mello joined the practice. She is kind, pro-active, and easy to talk to.

  • Dr. Mello is a wonderful doctor and I am thankful I have her.

  • Everything was great.

  • I am not a fan of telehealth

  • Dr. Mello is the most informed doctor that I ever had. She takes time to listen; to me that is so important that makes you feel so valued.

  • Very professional with the best bedside manner.

  • Dr is very pleasant and explains in an understanding manner.

  • They fit me into their schedule the same day I called with a problem. The only problem is a back up for MRIs so I have to wait more than 2 weeks.

  • + Feel well cared for by Laurie (nurse) and Dr. Mello. Dr. Mello discusses important issues in the aging process like hearing loss and encourages seeing a specialist. She is proactive. - I keep reports from other doctors I see (dermatologist, colon specialist, pulmonologist, etc.) but wish that with all of the technology available that all those reports would be part of my record with my primary care doctor. Many seem to get lost in the shuffle unless I make a point of asking for a copy of the report and send it to this practice.

  • My provider took her time explaining options very helpful and professional

  • Dr Mello and all staff were professional, kind and thoughtful. They shared their knowledge and listened carefully to my comments and concerns.

  • Dr Mello is my PC and we were meeting to follow up regarding an ER visit. We mainly stuck to topic. She is open yet calm

  • fast friendy service. polite, professional, thorough.

  • Dr. Mello was well informed of my Doabetes issue and was willing to listen to my opinion and desires on the issue. I respect and value her service.

  • Things were good, don't change anything.

  • Love Dr Ericka Mello and staff!!

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.
