  • I'm very happy with the experiences I've had for many years at my doctor's office and that's it.

  • Dr. Syme is a caring, knowledgeable, professional, I'm pleased to have him as my PCP.(Besides, he laughs at all of my jokes.)[Name] [Name]

  • Dr. Syme and Nurse [Name] were great. This was the first time I had worked with either one. Both had very graciously spoken to me by phone the day before my exam. I am grateful.

  • Nice procedure to visit the doctor during COVID pandemic

  • Complete physical with all Covid 19 precautions taken.

  • The visit was excellent the staff and Doctor were very professional as always.

  • Not feeling rushed through an appointment is important to me and taking time to listen to all my questions and concerns. This is done well.

  • I used just a phone conversation, video may have been better. Vet difficult to hear the doctor

  • My only concern is the long time between my call placed right after the office opened on Monday am (and I know that is the longest time on hold generally) when I talked to triage nurse around 9:15 and the call back after 2 pm setting up my appointment for 4:45 pm. My problem was cellulitis and the wait to begin antibiotics until Rx was ready after 6 pm was a long time. However, I do understand how busy Mondays can be--

  • The provider is great. The front office staff and medical assistant that helped us was very impersonal and not friendly.

  • My provider always true and open Doctor to remind me my health problems and encourage try to be a better health personThanks, Dr. Syme

  • The medical issue was addressed with additional future consultations planned

  • Thorough and accurate Provider. Great bedside manner along with knowledgeable feedback regarding all my questions

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.
