  • Very caring and professional.

  • Good visit, good exchange of info. All those I talked with provided exceptional service.

  • From the office staff to the nurse who asked me the preliminary questions to my actual doctor, everyone I interacted with for my appointment was extremely kind, thoughtful, helpful & informative. Because of the strict safety practices in place & adhered to at my doctors office/clinic, I also felt safe & protected from Covid 19. Excellent experience!

  • I would like the MA to be on video also.

  • Dr. Erika Mello is a fantastic doctor. She was easy to talk to and she answered all of my questions and she's very well educated and take the time she has patience. And I like her as a doctor very very much.

  • I felt they were careful of my safety with this virus. Also wanting to know if I need help getting food, my prescriptions showed me that they care. Very happy with Erika Mello and her staff.

  • I am satisfied

  • She did a great job.

  • The pre-reg is a problem because if you miss the call it takes forever to get thru. But this is true of all offices these days. I actually missed an appt because by the time I got thru the doc had left for the day.

  • Good service

  • I like my PCP (Dr. Erika Mello). She is well versed in her field has good people skills cares about her clients and pays attention to details. Her and her staff are first class.

  • At this time we communicated via skype. It went well and discussed past and current concerns as we just moved back to MA from FL. Completely satisfied and look forward to continuing our doctor/patient relationship with Dr. Mello.

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.
