  • The triage nurse got me a same day appointment with the nurse practitioner who was GREAT. Tests were done and my symptoms validated. RX was prescribed and update was in the portal.

  • Jen Silva, PNP and [Name]have truly been there for me as I have struggled with my health lately. I genuinely appreciate having them as my health care providers.

  • Saw me for visit within 3 hours of call for help

  • Jennifer was excellent, made me feel comfortable and was knowledgeable and very helpful to me.

  • Listened to my needs and responded appropriately.

  • Jennifer has been assisting me with my medical needs and stays well informed of my conditions and concerns. I am quite happy with the care I receive at this clinic .

  • Really everything done well. The immediate call backs and the setup of telehealth appointment and copay, data collection, contact back and forth, ease of communication with providers were all great. The phone situation in the morning is the only thing that can notch it a half a star off of a ten, but I also used the portal system which helps with South Coast (compared with other networks that have portals).

  • Staff was highly professional, kind and caring.

  • Well, I managed to get in a timely manner. Everyone was very polite. I got the treatment I needed and they double checked my health. They double checked my records. They got me extra treatment, which I thought I needed, which was a thought I needed, which was good. And generally with everything I needed. There wasn't really much of anything to do better but I really appreciate it. So thank you.

  • Called at the time they said

  • Everything was excellent.

  • The nurse practitioner was courteous and supportive.

  • I was very pleased with the people that I dealt with with Silva and the - I don't know, the assistant nurse. Everyone was courteous. They were quick. They listened to me and I felt like it was a really great doctor's appointment.

  • Jen, thank you for listening and most importantly for being empathetic. Because I struggle with anxiety, I felt like my symptoms were "all in my head" and I think I expected to be treated that way. But you listened to every detail and gave me options for how we could address the problem. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. THANK YOU!

  • Jen is helpful to see and is knowledgeable. It's nice to have the option to see her when [Name] doesn't have schedule availability and/or for less critical issues.

  • Provider reiterated my care is a Team effort with me a part of the Team.

  • The phys. Asst. that saw me was nice,smart, informed, up-to date, Perfect. I could not have asked or gotten better care. You are very lucky to have her. Top notch.

  • Got me an appointment for the same day on which I had called. Was prompt in meeting with me. Listened and explained well. Got me an appointment for a sona ram following my appointment! All very much appreciated!

  • The person who was checking me in, going through my info and asking for copay was rushed. dismissive and not customer service friendly. Otherwise all service was vey good.

  • Staff was very responsive in getting back to me after I made a request via My Chart. I would have liked to have gotten an appointment a few days earlier, but this was not possible. I was told that I could call on Thursday, July 7th for a "same day" appointment, but I had other commitments that day, and I was starting to feel better, so I can't blame them!

  • Responded quickly to my request for a prescription for an antibiotic.Telephone conversation that was required to speak with covering MD occurred right on time and prescription was called in to pharmacy.

  • The staff is always professional and pleasant and I feel comfortable going there the only thing that bothers me, is walking up that steep concrete ramp out front. You have installed a new railing for patients to hang onto which is great, but there should be some kind o rest bench to sit on when one is out of breath or dizzy, I was hoping for that, but it looks like it isn't going to happen, a safety measure !!

  • Took the time to listen and answer questions. Did not rush me.

  • Jen was very engaging and took a lot of time to obtain all the information needed for treatment.

  • The PA is fabulous

  • Great office!

  • More encouragement.

  • Excellent listening, took time, kind, wonderful bedside manner, patient answered all my questions

  • Provided prompt and helpful results

  • The service was timely and excellent with the provider addressing what was bothering me and provided the proper tests to get answers

  • Jen Silva was wonderful and really knowledgeable.

  • Awesome visit. Thank you

  • It all went well, and I called back once I started prednisone bc I got a rash. They were great and got back to me right away. I had just been in the office 2 hrs earlier and was afraid I was going to be charged again bc I had a question. I have to pay out of pocket, hugh deductible. It happened last yr when I called w a question, they charged me again.

  • Very helpful while we got COVID while traveling out of state. Helped us arrange for prescription to be sent to a pharmacy en route back home.

  • Jen is the best

  • Jen Silva NP is just wonderful! She is very knowledgeable, helpful and very caring. She takes the time to really talk, explain and listen to make the right plan to proceed in the best way toward the best for me (her patient). feel so very fortunate to have her in my corner! Please do everything you can to keep her as a care provider!

  • 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.

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.
