  • My questions were answered. I was listened to. We discussed see a Pulmonologist regarding a breathing test and I was given an Rx for an inhaler. The PA & Dr. were interested in my decisions on certain procedures and respected my choices.

  • Dr Kara K. is a fantastic doctor. I am so excited to work with her. We connected immediately. I have only felt comfortable with a handful of doctors at first meetings and I have had a variety of different physicians for many years due to an almost fatal car accident in 2015. Therefore,Southcoast should feel very fortunate to have such a caring, compassionate team member on board. Accolades to Kara K.

  • Dr K is honest, approachable and caring. She is willing to work with my other care providers to help with my goals. Her assistant was competent was not as warm as she is.

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.
