Patient Comments (44)

At Southcoast Health, we strive to deliver exceptional patient care along with an exceptional patient experience. We appreciate all of your feedback and share your comments to recognize the wonderful care our teams provide to you as well as identify areas for improvement.

  • Not only did my doctor remember information about me, but she referenced events affecting my well-being involving siblings and parents from at least eight years ago. She also asked about my husband's ongoing health issues and discussed it's impact on me. When I had questions about a health condition, she very carefully went over information with me and was very reassuring. The only thing that bothers me is the lack of communication between Southcoast and [Name] hospital. When I was admitted to [Name] hospital I received excellent care, but nothing was shared with my doctor.

  • Dr. Parameswaran is fantastic.

  • Dr. Parameswaran spends the time necessary to understand and address all of my issues. She is first rate in every respect.

  • Dr.Parameswaran is great, very knowledgeable,very caring,helpful .best dr. We have had .

  • Waited at least 1 1/4 hours to be placed in a room. Appointment was at 3:45, didn't leave there until 5:30!

  • Dr. Parameswaran is a wonderful doctor Unfortunately her support staff and those working admin at this facility are incredibly incompetent and insensitive and unprofessional

  • The way you can improve your services not to have the patient wait more than an hour.

  • The doctor was very knowledgeable and helpful

  • Everything having to do with the personal interactions was excellent. Every person there makes my appointments literally something to look forward to. The only negative comment was the wait time, it was about an hour after scheduled time. A small price to pay for an excellent team, but since you asked that's the one point of improvement.

  • Very, very thorough. I was getting a bit upset about waiting so long to be seen but once I was, I realized why. Dr. P. took her time with me and explained herself and made sure I understood everything she was telling me. This was my first visit to establish a new patient visit and I will definitely be using her for my new Dr. no matter how long I have to wait! Great Doctor!

  • No improvement needed. A+ care and experience!

  • Dr P and her team are great!

  • I love my physician and since I have had her as my primary I have moved within the state but I will not look for another doctor - I plan on keeping her for as long as possible - she is fantastic!!

  • My visits are always the best, every aspect of them.

  • Dr. P has always been an excellent sounding board regarding my specific physical issues. She is fast, knowledgeable and very positive during sharing of information. Both my wife and I are very comfortable with her level of care and communication.

  • My appointment was by phone. Dr. Was using cellphone and reception was bad. Twice conversation was cut off. Very difficult carrying on conversation. Felt that this appointment was a waste of time.

  • Dr Parameswaran is brilliant. I am so blessed to have her as my doctor.

  • The doctor is excellent: really takes an interest in her patients, if this encounter is typical.

  • I really like that office. I feel like [Name] is always so welcoming when you go in and [Name] is fantastic, and I absolutely adore my physician Dr. Parameswaran. She is professional caring and I'm a I'm a nurse and I just really appreciate her knowledge and the time she takes to educate.

  • I was unable to connect via video, so we had a phone visit. It would have been helpful to have insured that the video platform would work, prior to the appointment. I am new to the practice, and had not used this platform previously. Other than that, my experience with this provider was excellent. I’ve since fixed the issue with doximity so that it will work for future visits. Thank you.

  • Had an appointment for telehealth consult this afternoon within 3 hours of request! Impressive! My concerns were explored efficiently and options were given for treatment in a timely manner. Dr. P is amazing!

  • Dr. Parameswaran was wonderful. Looking at all my medical past history and genuinely interested in getting me to the best possible health at this point in my life.

  • You scored big time when you hired Jayanthi Parameswaran. That was the best thing you could ever done in the history of South Coast. That's it.

  • A big improvement would be for the visits to be on time. They are typically 30 min and more late.

  • Great providers! Using telehealth technology has allowed providers to continue caring for their patients while keeping everyone safe during this PHE.

  • I have great confidence in Dr. Parameswaran and am grateful she is my provider

  • I have been with my provider for 27 yrs. We have a good relationship, she knows my problems over the years and some were very serious. She is easy to talk to and understands where I am coming from. I am very comfortable with Dr. Paramasuaran .

  • I had to wait 45 minutes to be seen by doctor.

  • DR Parameswaran is an excellent family physician. The video consult was very efficient.

  • The office worker at the desk was not kind.

  • Staff great md wonderful. Billing. Always have an issue with bills and co pays

  • Phone visit w video was perfect. Dr. Parmeswaren was attentive and engaged, as always.

  • It was video conference. Which I prefer. I don’t always find the front office people pleasant. Dr Parmasawaran and Her Nurse are AMAZING. the front desk I struggle. They certainly have gotten better in time.

  • It was the best I have had since living in RI

  • I had to wait an hour for the video conferencing but I understood due to the virus.

  • Everything was fine, I have no complaints.

  • This was my first telehealth visit. The office staff scheduled my appointment for the next day when I called. Another person in the office called me the next morning with a few questions prior to the visit. Dr. Parameswaran called on a video visit without any problems. She reviewed a few things and addressed my problem in a caring way and efficiently. The office staff called later to schedule a follow-up appt, and an Rx was ready for me to pick up at my pharmacy a short time later. All went well!

  • Dr. Parameswaran is very attentive to any of mine or my family's needs.

  • I have a wonderful relationship with Dr. Parameswaran. What upset me a little bit today was, I was called to say, she'll be calling you at 9:30. My appointment was at 9:30. They gave me a heads up at about 10 past 9 and then I waited about 45 minutes past 9:30, for her call to come through and I was like sitting at my kitchen island with my phone in my hand. So, I wouldn't inconvenience her and the 45 minutes was was not good. That's it.

  • My care provider provided excellent care of via a teleconference as the office was restricted for people coming in and out based on the covid-19 safety requirements.

  • Under difficult circumstances using cell phones Dr P immediately put me at ease. Strange times but same great interaction with Dr P.

  • This appt was via telemedicine. Found this to be a very productive experience.

  • This Telehealth call was the next best thing to a live visit..

  • Everything was fine, except the fact that because of the pandemic it's not a face to face meeting. It's the best that can be done during these times but for an older lady like myself I prefer the contact.

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.
