  • [Name] is a wonderful medical assistant. The front desk staff are courteous and wonderful. Dr. Gonzalez is a great provider who takes time to listen to my concerns. Best OB office ever.

  • Visited on a Wednesday and still waiting for test results and prescription 5 days later.

  • Dr Gonzalez was amazing, kind, supportive and knowledgeable. Loved my first visit.

  • Note: the issue of timeliness shouldn't apply to this provider as he is an OB/GYN and the nature of his work/patients is unpredictable. With a telehealth call, it's not like sitting around in a waiting room, either. I greatly respect Dr. Gonzalez, the other doctors in his office and his nurses and staff.

  • Good experience. Staff helpful and kind

  • The provider was very thorough with explaining everything to me. He and his medical assistant made me feel super comfortable. The front staff was polite and even cleaned up cups in the waiting room that were giving me anxiety. I know I'm dramatic. Excellent all around

  • All staff were very friendly and being the first time I was in this office, they really made me feel relaxed especially when I came in very nervous. My provider was just the same made me feel comfortable and was very informative and explained things to me. Over all a great experience.

  • The entire staff was polite, helpful and compassionate and made me feel comfortable while I was there. They answered any questions I had.

  • Hello. It was very effective. They are good professionals and I like how they treat us and explain everything. Thank you.

  • Personal, professional, explained everything Thoroughly

  • Dr Gonzalez made me feel very comfortable, he explained everything to me. He was very gentle with my exam. All the girls in this office are very pleasant. The young lady at the front desk was so helpful getting me seen, there was a mix up with my initial appointment and she was able to get me seen that day. I was very grateful to her and the Dr for seeing me.

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.
