At Southcoast Health, we strive to deliver exceptional patient care along with an exceptional patient experience. We appreciate all of your feedback and share your comments to recognize the wonderful care our teams provide to you as well as identify areas for improvement.

  • The young woman at the check out desk at this office was extremely rude that even my children commented on her attitude. She is an awful representation of your organization.

  • I've been with this office for only two years now and both providers (Dr. Edwards and [Name], DNP) are amazing. They have listened to us and I can tell they actually pay attention. I never leave feeling confused about either of my children's health and that is so important. Not to mention the PARs and MAs are always super helpful and make our children fell at ease.

  • Dr. Edwards was very courteous. She was a very helpful and then as soon as I did come there, she don't know wait time, the girls over there too their all welcoming and they do the job as usual. Thank you.

  • We love Dr. Edwards and her staff!

  • I absolutely love Dr. Joely Edwards and the staff.

  • Dr. Edwards is always thorough and patient. She always takes the time to answer my questions without feeling rushed. I would recommend her to anyone w youngsters. Since our visit my daughter's been playing pretend as Dr. Edwards. Haha

  • My daughter was comfortable with her experience she didn't want to leave, so that says something

  • Dr edwards is amazing! She gets it! She speaks as a parent, down to earth, approachable and understanding. I appreciate the education she provides and the genuine care she has for my child

  • Kind and knowledgeable professionals and I am so happy to have such a great team caring for my children.

  • So far so good! They're nice people! Maybe the waiting its a lil bit longer, hopefully next we will not wait not sure. Thanks.

  • Love Dr. Edwards. She knows many details about Greyson and has such wonderful helpful advice. Everyone in the office is amazing.....

  • Your nursing staff is so great with small kids, Dr. Edwards takes her time which I appreciate. I will say that there was a man in there at first in the hallway and then inside the office with his mask around his chin. He was there complaining about something and nobody told him to fix his mask. My son is 2 and it's impossible to keep his mask on him so I was really counting on enforcement of the state mandated rules around masks for adults. I ended up having to keep my arm around my son's head and face until that man left. I was very displeased with that situation

  • I felt like the medical assistant should have more patients when working with children. She seemed a little crabby.

  • Everything Was Great And Clean I Felt Comfortable With The Visit

  • Dr. Edwards never makes me feel rushed and always listens to what I have to say or my concerns. She is super good with my son, always making us both comfortable. I also love that at every check up he gets a new book. I think that is just wonderful. Very happy with the care here.

  • I have been taking both my children to this office for years. I know they are in the best care with the staff and dr.edwards and Dr. [Name] We would never go to any other Healthcare provider.

  • They always professional and friendly to my kid and myself. I love our provider and stuff that help us out.

  • Dr. Edwards always takes the time to explain everything in complete detail.

  • I love the office staff and everyone there! They are so friendly and respectful!

  • We saw Dr. Edwards and we find her to be extremely knowledgeable, very relatable, and very good with children, and we would highly recommend her. Thank you.

  • Great experience but I did not think it was proper to enter through the staffs break room as an entrance to the patients room.

  • Walking into a healthcare facility during a global pandemic can be scary as a parent but the CNA’s that helped us get in the building and ask question made it a breeze. When we got to The waiting room everything was spaced out very well and super clean. The aid came to get us and walk us back to the room and there we only waited a few minutes for the doctor. I couldn’t be happier with the service Dr. Edwards provide, shes attentive to questions and helps people feel comfortable. My children love her, couldn’t be happier with her and her staff. Thank you for all you do!

  • Dr. Edwards is compassionate and attentive. I always feel comfortable speaking to her.

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.
