Patient Comments (9)

  • I love this office. They answer Mychart emails in a timely manner. Dr. Raphael is wonderful. She really listens and cares. Nothing like the other Pulmonary office I went to once and never returned to.

  • Office staff is always friendly,courteous, professional,and kind.I always feel like I'm Dr Raphael only patient because of the level of attentiveness and time I am given during my visit.

  • Dr Raphael was kind, understanding and showed concern. She seemed knowledgeable and made me feel in good hands.

  • Dr. Raphael is one of the best doctor's I ever had, not just Pulmonology. She try's to figure out the best course of action and actually listens to your questions and answers them honestly. You do not feel like you are rushed out of the visit or treated like another insurance number on her daily schedule. I would highly recommend Dr. Raphael to family and friends without hesitation.

  • The staff is very friendly and helpful. I would recommend all the doctors I have dealt with to all my friends and family.

  • The thing I disliked the most was waiting outside the office than waiting in the office. Everything else was good. normally the wait at all the other doctors is very short.

  • I honestly don't feel that my visit could have gone any better. I had a medical situation that had been treated, but wasn't improving. I was given an appointment for the very morning that I called. I was seen within minutes after check-in, the staff, as always was courteous and professional. Dr. Raphael was attentive, thorough and concise in explaining her diagnosis, as well as the reason for prescribing my particular medication.

  • Love Dr. Raphael. Takes the time to listen and explain to me. Very conscientious and a caring individual.

  • I was told to arrive 15 minutes. I actually arrived 20 minutes early and then waited for about 50 minutes before being called in. If I had arrived half an hour late for my appointment, I would have been right on time.

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.
