Patient Comments (6)

  • All was very good

  • This was the shortage time I have ever had to wait for a doctor's appointment. I was taken right in and after the initial weight, blood pressure and medication questions, the doctor came in only a few minutes after this was completed.My follow-up appointments were set up to my needs and I was on my way. This was one of my best medical appointments that I had ever had.

  • I was very pleased on how fast I was seen.

  • I've been Dr. Cava's patient for a number of years. Since my pacemaker implant, he has introduced other doctors to me for my continued care, and all have been very good to me. They seem to actually care for my health.

  • Dr. Cava got the tests done for me that[Name]never would have ordered and diagnosed me quickly. He set up a plan of action and got me back on track for recovery. One visit with him quelled anxiety I had after 2 separate visits to [Name]. [Name] got my after visit paperwork to me quickly and efficiently and set up my follow up appointment while being gracious and friendly. An all around positive visit.

  • All your tech's, health care providers were wonderful. They informed me of every procedure and what I could expect. They were gentle, attentive and professional. Dr Cava offered interpretation of the unfamiliar and gave me the impression that he would work with my other Medical Professionals to ensure a good and quick diagnosis and which treatment options would be available if as needed. It was wonderful to get the timely care and attention that I received.

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: Helpfulness of Clerks & Receptionists, 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.
