Patient Comments (39)

  • I have been with my Dr. For a few years know and had excellent service.Would not go anywhere else or have a better staff or Dr.

  • Have info that the lab person had left for the day at the check in computer. The checkout person was lovely but didn’t hear my question about if I had any orders for lab work.

  • Love the new examination rooms! Love Dr Parmeswaran!

  • My appointment was at 3:30 but I didn’t see my doctor until 4:35.When i arrived, it was my first time in the newly remodeled office and there were no signs on how to sign in.

  • absolutely nothing ! It was a very pleasant experience . and I love the new place !!! It is very clean and spacious !!! and everyone is so friendly and pleasant !

  • Good experience. Friendly courteous staff. A little cumbersome printing out 1 page per blood test so you have to give the lab a pile of papers.

  • Very pleased with the whole experience..

  • Wait time very much improved. New facility is amazing and spacious.

  • The waiting room looks like a bus station. When you are called the assistance does not even come into the main waiting area. You do not know where to stand when waiting for registration for your appointment.

  • More information about healthy eating, weight loss

  • Keep up the good work!

  • Happy with the overall appointment

  • Great attitude at front counter. Timely wait. CLEAN ENVIRONMENT! Beautiful facility. And hands down the best Doctor on Aquidneck island. Dr Parmesawaran

  • Dr. Parameswaran is the best doctor that I have ever received care from in all my years. She is so knowledgeable and caring and never rushes.

  • Dr P is attentive and caring and knowledgeable as always, I adore her. And the front desk was actually helpful this time

  • The new facility is great.

  • The attention I received when I arrived was very kind and timely. It was my first time in the new office so I was a little unsure of the process. There were tablet screens just as I entered the waiting area but no instruction on how or if I needed to use them. I did not have to wait long before one of the associates called me over to the desk to check me in. I did wait over 30 minutes beyond the time of my scheduled appoint before the Dr came into the exam room but with a late afternoon appointment I understand that. Maybe a text to my phone 30 mins. before my appointment to confirm they are running on time would be possible. Otherwise I am always pleased with the care I receive when with the Dr. Check out was simple and straight forward and the associate was very nice.

  • I was given a 10:15 appt and checked in at 10:06. I was finally called at 11:20 and told that "I was late so the person before me was called first"I was not late, in fact I was early and do not appreciate having to wait over an hour to be seen

  • My Dr. Parmaswaren took the time to explain my blood work, condition and treatment plan. It?s very important to patients that Doctos are given the time to meet with their patients and explain things to them. Often time they have limited amounts of time per patient which diminishes the quality of care. Dr. Parmeswaren is the best!!!!!!!

  • It was the opening day for your new location which may have made a difference in the long wait time. As far as my provider, Dr. parmaswaran,She is by far the best doctor I have ever been to.

  • great office!

  • The new office is terribly glamorous and quite spacious. Most delightful.

  • Love the new office. I always feel likeI get the VERY BEST care. I wouldn?tchange a thing.

  • Though the wait has sometimes been long, I feel that the time devoted to my visits makes up for it.

  • Dr Parmeswarn is the best doctor around!

  • I think it would be really helpful to let patients know about how far the doctors are running behind. When it?s more than a half an hour we should be given an option to leave the building. We would do so at the risk of missing a slot but Dr. P is notorious for being at least an hour behind it to sit there for an hour when they know at the front desk that she?s an hour behind is just really annoying.

  • You did everything well

  • Dr. Parmeswaran took time to listen to me, and help me with my many questions.

  • Dr. Parameswaran is the best doctor. I have been with her since o got out of pediatrics and I would follow her anywhere she went, she is hands down the best!!

  • I find that my physician is a person who is not only a good doctor but also a caring person.

  • Loved her. She listens, is so smart, answers my questions and never made me feel rushed

  • All was good, thanks

  • The girl at the front desk who greets you goes above and beyond to be friendly and helpful.

  • This office just continues excel with their service and care, and have wonderful doctors with whom to work, which makes things great all the way around

  • Waiting room had no heat on a morning in the teens. Had to keep on coat, scarf and gloves. Wait was longer in the waiting room than usual but did have heat in the examining rooms. At 75 years old it was very uncomfortable. Others also stayed bundled up.

  • I had to wait 90 minutes to be seen however my doctor always provides excellent care so because of this I try not to become frustrated with the extensive wait time

  • The waiting is ridiculous. The front desk was okay this time, but in the past it left a lot to be desired. When I went in for my flue shot there was a huge argument at the front desk. Not sure who manages the office, but it should be addressed and it might help the waiting issue too to keep people informed instead of arguing. The people out front are what might make your "business".

  • Dr. Parmeswaran is responsive, kind, and proactive in addressing my health needs. I would highly recommend her and am deeply appreciative of her care.

  • Everyone was very helpful!Keep it up!

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: Helpfulness of Clerks & Receptionists, 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.
