  • Had my appointment on my android phone due to Vivid 19 restrictions and it went very well

  • Under the circumstances of covid it seems I can wait until June for medical care or go to er, nothing in between.no specialist was offered. I asked for covid test ,told someone would call no one called. Connection by internet was poor so conversation had to repeated over and over.

  • Use of video chat is very important during this pandemic.

  • The staff was great and Dr. Zuzarte was clear, helpful, and attentive as usual. Appreciative of South Coast working so hard to support us all during this stressful time

  • It was a video house call. Thank you so much for doing this service! I am going to be 69 in August, this was my first doctor visit to my house in over 50 years!

  • I actually did the visit over the phone registration call me in the morning the nurse called me 10 min before the doctor call me. I think that based on the information that I told the doctor he had a path forward.

  • Especially during this time of Crisis. The staff was very good. Very helpful. They brought me right to where I needed to be and they treated me courteously.

  • Great service

  • Great customer service - they're very helpful.

  • Made sure my medications are the right medications and appointments made for my shingle shot.

  • Just a wonderful experience

  • Basically a very good experience and appreciate the assistance in overseeing my health.

  • answered all my concern properly

  • Need better signage to find location

  • My appointment was for 2pm I wasn’t called until 320 I thought that was a long wait but I guess they were busy.

  • I came in with two medical issues. One most immediate and concerning, the other less immediate but a long lasting issue. But if time with any doctor is limited, then attending the immediate issue solely, well...then so be it. I’m not a hypochondriac, but it would seem that finding serious illness or cancer early is a safest measure to take. Hope I hear back on my blood test results good or bad. Your staff are nice and helpful.

  • No Promblems.Fast service,Friendly Staff,all went well.Thank You!

  • Dr zuzarte is a caring and knowledgeable provider. I have recommended him amd will continue to do so.

  • The receptionist and nurse were very nice

  • total excellent care

  • Staff was professional and punctual. Doctor could use some inproving

  • Everything was done in a mainly time and everyone was very friendly

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.
