They went out of their way to provide me with a special form I needed, which saved me a lot of running around. As for Dr. Martin, I don't think that I have the vocabulary to express how superb a physician he is. He's a true healer. He has stuck with my problem, terrible headaches every day for 10 years, and finally we have made progress. He is not arrogant and had me go to [Name] neurologists, but none could help and they gave up. Not Dr. Martin. He listens, he thinks, he helps. I never feel rushed. I am 74 years old and have been to doctors in 3 countries. He is the best! It is only his determination not to give up that prevented me from giving up and gaining a better quality of life. I would, and have, followed him anywhere. He cares. I feel as though I am his only patient or his most important patient and that we will continue to make progress to diminish these wretched headaches. You are fortunate to have him on board at Southcoast Health Neurology!

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.
