  • I was really impressed by the doctor. He asked many questions. He's very knowledgeable. He was very interested in my history, my medical history and he was terrifically helpful in his recommendation. I'd give him an A plus.

  • Dr Vakharia did a fine job in all ways. I think that he's a bit short-staffed, like everyone else these days.

  • Communication

  • Doctor and intern were very professional and I was quite happy that the doctor explained everything in a way that I understood without having to ask many questions I also did appreciate that when he came into room he first off acknowledged that a student intern was with him overall experience at this appointment was great no complaints

  • Dr. Vakharia is a gem. A wonderful surgeon and an even better person. Best bedside manner I've ever seen.

  • It was an excellent visit. Doctor Varkaria was very informative. He explained everything in terms I could understand. He had all my pictures and showed me where the problems were. He had two choices for me to choose and then together we chose the best option. When the surgery is performed we would go with the less option and if when he got a picture of the problem and the first option didn't work we would go with the second. He was great and I fully trust him to fix my problem.

  • Dr.Vakharia showed a genuine concern for my overall health, not just for the issue that was the reason for my visit. He is thorough with explanations and instructions.

  • Very knowledgeable,curtious,expediant.(short wait time)

  • Dr. Vakhariau00A0is simply the best.!

  • Your response and feedback ARE ... helpful.

  • I am very pleased with all aspects of care.

  • It was very easy to make an appointment. Everyone I spoke to while making my appointment, calling to provide my insurance information and those I met in the office were helpful and pleasant. I love that someone answers the phone! Other healthcare providers have answering systems and call you back at some point, thank you for having staff available to answer the phone!

  • The doctor was very professional, very friendly, and explain things in a way that I understand very well. So I probably don't need another appointment with him. But if I did I would definitely recommend him to someone else very professional.

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.
