  • All perfect.

  • when I first arrived I was a little lost , because that was my first time there. and I found someone at the facility that helped me. and everything went fast and well. I could asked any questions that I wanted and the Dr was so understandable.

  • Very welcoming, kind, compassionate, and professional.

  • Great surgeon, great provider

  • Professional Thoughtful Caring Efficient

  • Dr. Huaco took the time to answer all questions that I, and my wife, had. We didn't feel rushed or dismissed. He even took the time to literally draw pictures showing what the plan was for my surgery, and again after showing what was done. During my stay in the hospital and at my follow-up office visit his bedside manner was an A+!

  • Well, everything was perfect, thank you very much.

  • Office and waiting room was cramped, over crowded, too hot and waited over 30 min to be seen. Staff did appear very professional and a secretary wasn't very friendly. Was very disappointed with the overall experience from start to finish.

  • The staff was excellent. I called this morning and they got me in for 11:30am. I plan on switching my primary care to south coast. Thank you so much for a great experience.

  • So kind and friendly ! Apts have to be booked out very far in advance which isn't great .

  • nothing at this time

  • Listened carefully to me during my visit and respected my opinion.

  • Office was under staffed. She seemed aggravated with the phone and patients.

  • First visit they were very nice and helpful .

  • The Dr. showed me my x-ray about my hernia.. It was very enlightening.Dr.Jorge Huaco explained the procedure and showed me a diagram of my hernia.. He also scheduled me for a very early operation as soon as possible.He suggested a 2 week diet to lose a few pounds before procedure.. I am sticking to it very closely, with just a few tweaks.. Also [Name] from the office on the 3rd floor, was very through.. She scheduled me an appointment with the Lab and EKG ASAP!! Great follow through and very professional!! Thank you,[Name] [Name]

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.
