  • Everything was good

  • Dr. Zuzarte is kind listens to what I have to say and does not make me.feel rushed.

  • The office support staff was thorough and responsive. The doctor listened very well, was informative, and was proactive. I was very pleased with the entire experience.

  • They did nothing well. I had to wait 15 minutes for a first appointment (8:00 a.m.), then I waited in the exam room for over 30 minutes after the nurse was done. If I hadn't opened the door and asked the nurse where the doctor was, who knows how long I would have been waiting.

  • You done, you done very well with the questions.

  • Dr Zuzarte took the time to read past notes, asked if I had health concerns, walked thru each concern the sent me for follow up testing...he was very thorough... That is what I need in a PCP doctor. He goes to the next steps.. It was hard with telehealth 1st time there it was hard to hear and focus... But he seemed genuine & to care about my health & treatment plan.

  • Doing well.

  • I did not have to wait for my scheduled appointment and was seen almost immediately. I felt that the office was clean and staff were practicing proper safety protocols regarding the pandemic

  • The doctor is really rude and really didn't seem to care . He was also very rude to the nurse . I'll be making a change back to my old doctor and will not be returning to the doctor I had. I don't like that doctor at all

  • [Name] was quite positive and cheerful and Dr Zuzarte was very patient while I logged on, as I had some difficulty.

  • I have know words

  • Phone line was sometimes not clear Dr prescribed antibiotics and scheduled Bloodwork in a week .

  • It perfect don’t change

  • Asked me very important questions about my health

  • Dr. Zuzarte seems like a very genetic, generic, guy and after mentioning that I have had some chest pains, I kind of seemed disinterested and did not mention anything, maybe what the cause of that could be from or what we could do about it. Seems like he just kind of goes out throughout his day, to get through it and doesn't actually provide the utmost care that he could, for his patients.

  • Very complete and friendly appointment I did not feel rushed at all. I was asked several times during the appointment if I had any questions or concerns.

  • Everything was professional and smooth. The whole team made the visit pleasant.

  • Doctor's secretary was extremely helpful in processing my request. She was empathetic and efficient.

  • I was pleased with the way the visit was conducted.

  • Under the circumstances of Covid, i was able to speak with the MD in a timely manner and got the prescription that I needed. Thank you

  • Rather have office visits.

  • What Did Not Went Well:1. I was forced to find a fax machine to fax my documents to provider, while I asked to email or upload.2. Very poor audio and video

  • There was great communication between his nurse, [Name] reviewing ... going over the meds making sure I had the meds and that I'm very versed in the meds and know the meds and good communication with my provider Dr. Zuzarte.

  • Dr. Zuzarte is very professional and he knows my medical history very well. I enjoy having visits with him and his staff. Thank you.

  • I was very satisfied with my televisit, but I needed I (INAUDIBLE) go and get 2 prescriptions and when I went to pick them up, one of them was $70, which I did not want to spend. So I don't know whether it's feasible for the provider or the front office to to check out things like that in advance. So patients don't get unwanted surprises and have to spend more time possibly to replace the the prescription. So, that's all I, you know, that was a high price or something to treat something which was an eye infection that will only want only be used once. I hope I said that clearly, okay. Thank you.

  • Dr Zuzarte listened to my issues and formed a plan with me to determine a solution.

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.
