  • No complaints I am very satisficed.

  • She listened

  • Office personnel very friendly and efficient

  • It was first time I met this provider. She was friendly which put me at ease. She listened and worked with me. The odd welt like rash I was seen for had a sudden onset and by the time I was seen 36 hours later many of the symptoms had disappeared. I took pictures of the rash earlier that morning which helped the provider. I called in because the rash looked unusual (different size blotches, red, welt like and sudden onset) and was found on several parts of my body and it was itchy. I felt the approach was too aggressive {prednisone, antihistamine, and fungal cream)since symptoms were dissipating at time I was seen. I agreed to using fungal cream but didn't realize a prescription for prednisone, antihistamine and fungal cream had been ordered. I only picked up the cream. My rash resolved itself. I think a more minimal approach might have been more effective like continuing to use hydrocortisone cream which had been effective and to call back if itchy rash persisted.

  • Staff are usually very friendly and they care for u quickly.

  • The physician and all staff are kind, empathetic and professional with me and knowledgeable concerning my past and present ailments and have developed effective plans to arrest and/or control them.

  • Great personal attention and caring service.

  • I felt like I was having an equal conversation and everything was explained clearly to me.

  • Jennifer had great bedside manner. Her attention to my concerns, understanding, and approach were excellent.

  • I do not have a very long history with this doctor.I think the standards of care are are good and see no problems.

  • Mitch she was very, very knowledgeable. She explained everything to me. I would recommend her. She's super.

  • Everyone was kind, appointment was the same day I called and was on time. The provider was thorough and made a plan to help me out.

  • Everyone at the office was super sweet, Jennifer Costa the NP was amazing, she explained everything well and made me feel comfortable.

  • This facility is always welcoming.The atmosphere is peaceful. Staff are caring.

  • Jen Costa NP was so nice! She was very thorough and took the time to listen to all my concerns.

  • The only thing I did not like was the follow up. I needed to book an appointment with a cardiologist. I preferred going to the same person my husband sees and was told by the practitioner that they would contact me. When they did I was told my appointment would be with a cardiologist I was not familiar with. I made it clear that I had specified someone else n they rescheduled me.

  • I was very pleased by my provider's approach and knowledge of my medical history. She listened to my concerns and suggested a plan of action that is working.

  • I think it a very good, what you did.

  • Seen by Nurse Practitioner, Jennifer Costa, who was proficient and empathetic. Other staff support seemed condescending...baby talking to me, an elderly patient. I wanted to laugh. As a published author and poet, I certainly understand language.

  • I am so impressed with this office. I saw Jennifer Costa NP and she was amazing and caring. I loved how they made my other appointments for me before I left the office.

  • My prescription was called into the wrong pharmacy after hours. There was no one to contact over the weekend and had until Monday to get it cleared up.

  • The NP I seen was amazing. She was so kind and reassuring. I would definitely recommend everyone to see her. She was fantastic!

  • Jen was the best provider I've ever seen. She was kind, thorough and very helpful not to mention incredibly empathetic.

  • A+ as always

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.
