About Hector Lopez-Marquez

Dr. Hector Lopez attended Cornell University before earning his doctorate from Columbia University’s College of Physicians and Surgeons. Dr. Lopez then chose to train at the University of Pennsylvania, where he completed a residency in Anesthesiology, followed by a Fellowship in Pain Medicine. Having connections to the New York State and the Greater Boston areas, he is excited to have the opportunity to join the Southcoast Health System serving the southeastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island communities.

Dr. Lopez’s philosophy of care is rooted in the belief that all patients who suffer from chronic pain deserve care that is compassionate, thoughtful, evidence-based, and integrative in nature. Dr. Lopez treats each patient in the context of their unique biopsychosocial situation and approaches each individual patient as a whole that is more than any one individual medical diagnosis.

He is board certified in both Pain Management and Anesthesiology.

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.
