  • terrific first visit.

  • Service was a 10, everyone was extremely nice from the moment I arrived . Because your office is so good I had to wait 5 months for an appointment but worth the wait. The woman who did my hearing test was a strong 10+, have clostriphobia and she was very compassionate and understanding. She explained everything to me in and went over the results so I could understand them. Joshua was very kind and knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend to friends and family.

  • Josh was very accommodating and attentive to my situation. He was well aware of my current issue and was ready to discuss any and all details about options and action plan.

  • Everyone was polite, courteous and respectful.

  • They all did their job very professional

  • Everything was professional, from the time I entered the building. Until the moment I left. Josh was fabulous, and I would give him a 15, not a 10, and I want to thank you for the service that was provided.

  • Dr Costa listened and did not make me feel rushed - as did [Name] who conducted the hearing test - they explained everything as they went along which was great as I have never had an audiology appointment before. My only complaint was that it took a very long time to get the appointment almost 6 months - with someone with constant ringing and dizziness that is a long time.

  • It was very good care, starting from the receptionist. The nurses were very attentive. the doctors were very cordial, attentive, and inspired a lot of confidence. It was very good service.

  • I was seen quickly and, though thorough, I was still able to get in and out in good time. NP was very good at explaining my situation and options and answered questions I didn't even know I needed to ask. Definitely on top of his game.

  • My first time there i felt very comfortable and not worried he answered all my question for me that i understanded

  • Joshua was courteous and attentive. He explained everything very well and I am very happy to have had him involved in my care of what for me was a otherwise painful, yet familiar experience.

  • I was very impressed with Joshua has an NP. His knowledge, expertise, and clinical skills were absolutely superb. I am also impressed with the office staff that tried to get me in emergently after I had a hospital stay. Originally they weren't going to get me in until January and that was good someone had some sort of triage skills to provide my recommended follow up appointment, which was pretty emergent. So I am very grateful to this ENT. The nurse practitioner was amazing and I would rate him a 10 out of 10.

  • A sooner appt would've been great. I have been in pain for almost 2 months every day and night. When ever I went to doctor or clinic for this problem no one can solve it. I am praying that after waiting all this time I can get relief from the pain and be able to hear again. It's very frustrating.

  • It was an emergency situation I needed to see a new doctor and he took me in right away. Got a cancellation and I would there the same day when the doctor called to put me in for an appointment and he helped with a big issue and I thank him for that, goodbye.

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.
