  • Easy to understand. Explained everything in layman's terms. Had a very good demeanor.

  • Took the time to listen to me

  • Mr. G and his staff was terrific. I would not hesitate to see this office again - which I hope I don't!!!

  • The provider (Dr. G) was phenomenal. There seems to be a lack of knowledge as far as the office help is concerned. Tried to get another appointment in October and was told you will be put on a list and we will let you know. I never seen this happen with any other Southcoast doctors office. I asked when will I know my appointment I am planning on getting surgery the end of 2023 and was told we will let you know, I said should I call back in 2 weeks and was told that's fine. For a doctor who I absolutely felt comfortable with and would welcome him to do the surgery, the office staff scares me with their lack of efficiency.

  • The doctor knew exactly what was going on with me. He had reviewed my file, before I got there. He explained everything very well. I just think he's great and I would recommend him to anybody.

  • The Doctor, NP, and medical assistant were very kind, thorough, and reassuring with the plan of my care and upcoming surgery.Everything was explained well and I feel better prepared now. I know what to expect.Their positive comments and reassurance helped me feel a lot better about my situation.

  • Everyone in the office was great and Dr G was amazing

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.
