  • Everything went well. Just sad to hear of Dr. Lippincotts retirement in 6 months.

  • I could only schedule on line. I wanted an annual physical & ended up with a 15 minute diabetes check in appointment which was explained to me by the nurse once I was in the room. Not happy about this.

  • I was taken in exactly on time. Did not have to wait in the waiting room and I did not wait in the... in the examination room. Longer than 3 minutes.

  • All the staff were caring and very professional .

  • I have been with this provider for many years. He knows me & my family. He asks about my health and their well being as well. He listens to my questions and addresses all/any concerns I have. Dr. Lippincott is terrific!

  • Dr. Lippencott is the best.

  • Dr. Lippincott has a calming effect on me and that helps a great deal.

  • The experience at the office went very well. The only thing that does not go well is the wait time to call your office. It's a horrendous wait time, you know, 10, 15 minutes on the phone just to get a human. You need to do better with that. You get sick of hearing the same recording that says, 'your call is important to us, and your call will be answered in the order it was received'. You need a human response better. There's enough of girls in that office to answer the phone. Thank you.

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.
