  • Jennifer was very personable and compassionate when I explained what I've been going through in caring for my sick mother

  • My message in my chart was responded to quickly offering me a telehealth visit the same day. I was concerned about bringing my illness to the office so the telehealth visit was a great alternative.

  • Thank you for getting me in quickly. Hope telephone staffing increases as the hold time was very lengthy w/o options for a call back voice message.

  • The staff pays attention to you and cares for you in a very personal way. I appreciate that they make me feel comfortable and safe. I can talk about what I need and my concerns.They are respectfull and (most important), they do not rush you during your time there.

  • I received professional help by telephone promptly.

  • It all went very well.

  • The IBS prescription medication that I was prescribed and was sent to my Pharmacy was not approved by my insurance. I feel the medication should be research prior to sending to avoid a delay in refill and pick up a prescription.

  • Jen, is very attentive and follows through.

  • Friendly & helpful

  • For some reason I was nervous for my physical and Jen made me comfortable immediately. I am relatively new at this practice and am happy to have found a nurse practitioner I like as much as her.

  • I am new to this group, so I don't yet know how to rate the overall service.

  • I felt respected. I love how she listened to me.

  • Everything was done with the utmost professionalism, I was very satisfied

  • I was very satisfied with visit!

  • Jen is a wonderful NP and I trust her expertise! Telehealth was a great option on that icy day!!

  • Hello. I...I had a very good experience yesterday with Jennifer, and she had a nursing practitioner trainee, and she was a wonderful person, and friendly and knowledgeable as you ever expect a professional to be. And I really, highly recommend that office. They're both very nice, professional people, but yet very warm, you know, they're warm and...and...and very willing to answer questions. Thank you.

  • Jennifer was extremely prepared and knowledgeable about all my medical issues. It was very impressive. She talked about options for how to proceed and immediately followed up. Also her summary notes from the visit were the most complete and comprehensive I have ever seen. Very impressive.

  • Everyone was very efficient, friendly and professional. My issue was dealt with in a very timely manner and resolved.

  • I had the time to address all my questions.

  • My visit yesterday at the center was find. I have no complaints at all. Everything was beyond what I expected. I'm very... very happy with the whole situation and Miss Silva was wonderful. I would certainly recommend her and come back again. Thank you.

  • I love Jen Silva NP!

  • I always have had a wonderful visit in Portsmouth office! The staff is courteous and attentive! I drive about an hour to get to that office! Keep up the awesome job Portsmouth southcoast ! Thank you

  • My provider took the time today to go over my question and listen to my concerns

  • Ms. Silva is friendly and kind and makes me feel at ease—I am often nervous in a doctor's office but not with her. She listens and is helpful, and always makes me feel like she has time for me.

  • Today's visit was as good as a visit to a health provider can be. There have been times over the years that waiting times have been so lengthy that the rest of my day had to be re-arranged.

  • Saw me as soon as needed and referred to X-ray And labs

  • Jennifer Silva is a very knowledgeable and dedicated PA and I will always ask fir her to treat me when asking fir an appointment

  • Jen Silva is the best! She is kind, caring, thorough, and attentive. The office staff were all professional, courteous, and thorough as well!

  • Jen Silva was very thorough and spent considerable time answering my questions.

  • My experience is very good Jennifer Silva is always very nice and caring and effective and so is her staff and I was seen in a very timely manner. I was seeing about 2 minutes after I checked in, and I was on time for my appointment and as always take me right in every time I go there, the only issue I've ever had is it very long to make an appointment. I have to call and then wait on hold for over 20 minutes and it wasn't through Jennifer Silver's office. It was through South Coast, which is a little ridiculous that I have to call them and then call talk to my doctor or someone in their office. It's a little too much. I liked it better when I could just call Dr. [Name]'s office directly, and I can no longer do that. So that's not very nice and I don't appreciate that. It's a waste of my time, but I'm free thing that happens at the office is perfect and the staff is excellent.

  • For my previous visit they were backed up and I could see my appointment was going to run late. I asked if they could find out and rescheduled with no judgment. That made me feel important and not just another number.

  • She was so sweet and really cared about my issue. I really liked that she cared so much about what is going on.

  • Everything was very positive. Lucky to get in to see someone on the day of my injury

  • Asked pertinent questions and listened closely to my answers. Explained everything in a calm manner.

  • Jen Silva is great!

  • Jennifer Silva was very caring and explained things clearly and concisely. She was very though in caring for me.

  • Only issue was that even though I was in the building for my annual physical I will have to return after making an appt for blood work. I understand reasons these days for appts but there was no patient in the lab.

  • I have seen Jennifer Silva numerous times and have always been extremely satisfied!

  • Great experience every time with [Name] [Name]. Jennifer Silva is great and very good at explaining plans and medications with you.

  • I appreciated getting an appointment with the nurse practioner the next morning since my PC person was on vacation.

  • I wasn't seen by my PCP that day, I saw the nurse practitioner and she was awesome! I wish she was a Dr she'd make a damn good one!

  • No complaints.

  • Very comfortable here.

  • Great

  • I saw Jennifer, the nurse practitioner. She actively listens to everything and has been immensely helpful.

  • It is always a pleasure to see Jenn. I see many providers for a handful of conditions but Jenn is by far the most thorough and caring. She is very knowledgeable and always provides the best care.

  • Yes, the experienced was very positive. I really couldn't have made it into the office anyway, and she answered all my questions and took care of what was going on. So I would say 10 out of 10 and thanks very much. Thank you. Bye.

  • When I first made the appointment the assistant was unaware that the provider she scheduled me with does not see other MDs patients. Another assistant called me back to schedule an appointment unaware of the the previous appointment made. The second assistant made an appt for me with a nurse practitioner which was perfectly fine but did not tell me it was a telehealth appt. I drove up to the facility only to get a call telling me it was a telephone appt. and that I could not come into the facility. So I sat in the car and took the call. The NP had read my chart, was very knowledgeable, helpful and prescribed medication and how I should follow up. Even though the staff was friendly and helpful I would have appreciated knowing that it was going to be a telephone call.

  • Nurse Practitioner Silva was amazing. She did everything needed and with outstanding professionalism. Thank you!

  • It took more than 24 hours to make an appointment. I did not get a call back on the first day. This was a painful situation and I was disappointed that no one called me back. I had to call again on day 2.

  • Jen is very professional and always thorough and makes me so comfortable with her.

  • I don't like I've called twice in last week and I've had to wait over 10 minutes on hold trying to get some reason answer the phone. If that happens again, I'm going to have to get a new provider cuz I don't have 10 minutes to waste waiting for somebody from a doctor's office answer the phone. None of my other doctors offices take 10 minutes to have somebody pick the phone up. I'm not going to I'm not going to stay around even though I'd like to dr. I don't have 10 minutes to waste waiting for the staff to pickup. They should hire more people. Thank you.

  • Great experience, no issues.

  • Appointment was timely , lab work timely. No wait period very important when not feeling your usual self. Nurse Practitioner listened well, knowledgeable.

  • I love this office!!!!!Everyone works hard, and always pleasant!

  • I was impressed the doctor's office was able to set up an appointment for me immediately. Two hours after my call, I was in being seen. It was very very helpful. (Linden Tree Health Center)

  • Listen to your patients

  • The Nurse Practitioner Jenn was thorough and caring. She listened to me and came up with a multi-faceted approach to fix my back problem. I appreciate that.

  • Jen did a wonderful job of treating me when I saw her, and the office staff was very helpful and very friendly.

  • Jenn was amazing !

  • I got an appt quickly when needed.

  • By provider Jenn is the best. Front desk staff were rude and clearly didn't want to be there. Also first time I've been to dr office and they didn't take blood pressure or pulse. I found that odd.

  • Great staff!

  • was able to schedule an appointment when needed. Provider answered by questions and provided information.

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.
