Patient Comments (4)

  • Dr. Verma has been absolutely outstanding and has explained different issues with my health in such a way I have been willing and would be willing to go for tests and procedure, that otherwise I wouldn't have. I will never forget the fact that he called me personally to apologize for not being at the hospital one day as he was caring for a patient with an extreme medical emergency. He most definitely brings to Southcoast "More than Medicine".

  • It was a very pleasant experience! I love Dr. Verma. Hes got an awesome bedside manner! All the professionals I came in contact with were great. I highly recommend Southcoast

  • Dr. Verma was kind, friendly, and professional. We discussed in detail my colonoscopy and my semi-chromic diahreha (most likely due to my cancer meds). Very happy that Dr. Verma was the Gastroenterologist available to see me soonest when I realized I needed to see someone with this specialty. Staff we also pleasant and professional. Win win all the way around!

  • As always, the most needed improvement is in the area of coordination and communication amongst the various doctors and specialists. I understand a certain degree of redundancy is important when asking the patient for information. However, there is also an importance for the professionals to talk to each other and coordinate the most effective care. Too much is left to the patient to ask the right questions and know the complete medical history.

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.
