  • Dr. Verma is very timely, very interested in his patient, very thorough. Initiates new methods for new medications. If you need them or takes away medications. He is an excellent physician. Thank you.

  • Dr Verma went above and beyond to get me an early appointment

  • The Doctor was patient and personable.

  • Would really like to rate this provider 9.5. Was entirely satisfied and grateful.

  • I was very happy with my appointment, and response from the provider. I however, wasn't sure how I was going to be receiving the Tele Health appointment, maybe in the future you could let the patient know ahead of time whether they will be receiving the phone call or be a link sent to them. Many offices do it different ways. That would have been helpful to know ahead of time. Thank you.

  • Dr. Verma was very helpful. I enjoyed my tel a health with him. I think that he is serving me well, for my condition that I have and I would highly recommend his help for anyone seeking his assistant. I felt that he got to know me personally, and emotionally with things that I needed to talk about, so that he had very good bed side manner, and he was able to drop my medicine to 1 a day which made me happy, for my bone health. I just think he's a really great doctor. He's encouraging me to lose weight, and provided me with materials and books, to read and he's just all around number one.

  • The conversation was on point, the Dr allowed me sufficient time to explain my problem and briefly update him on my medical history.

  • The appointment was on time and he was knowledgeable and caring.

  • Everything was perfect i don't thing need to fix anything

  • Having reviewed the results from procedures.

  • As my G. I . Specialist had retired, I inquired about Dr. Verma and made an appointment. He is a breath of fresh air. Not only did he listen intently to my health history, probing for additional information, but then was able to provide an alternate, less invasive procedure to validate a diagnosis. I hope he remains with Southcoast until his retirement!!

  • The conversation with Dr. Verma was very good and he explained everything and question me about my concerns. However, I really think that the Telehealth would have been better if we were able to use the computer and see each other face to face and discuss what needed to be discussed.

  • I will tell you the experience was a very good one. The ... I had to go to the lab and then I had to have my x-rays, and the people there were all very, very quick to help me in every way. Nothing but the best. I'm very proud of being part of you.

  • I was very impressed with Dr Verma he is was not currently is not currently my gastroenterologist I currently have one with [Name] [Name] because I had to have a relationship with Dr [Name] however moving forward I will now have Dr Verma as my gastroenterologist

  • Everything was prompt, professional and informative. No suggestions.

  • Dr VERMA and his team are amazing!

  • I wear hearing aids. Even though they are connected to my phone with Bluetooth, I have difficulty and miss much of a conversation. I really miss the in-person visits and feel that I am expected to be responsible for too much. Dr Verma was very patient and repeated frequently.

  • Dr Verma was very helpful and knowledgeable. He explained everything thoroughly and set up a plan for my care. I'm very happy to have been able to schedule an appointment with him.

  • My first appt. with Dr. Verma. He was very nice and put me at ease. Scheduled my colonoscopy for May.

  • They were very curtious and helpful.

  • My experience was great!

  • Quick appointment, on time, no wait, very informative, did not rush, felt very comfortable with speaking with Dr. Verma

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.
