At Southcoast Health, we strive to deliver exceptional patient care along with an exceptional patient experience. We appreciate all of your feedback and share your comments to recognize the wonderful care our teams provide to you as well as identify areas for improvement.

  • ALL WAS WELL DONE.CHECK OUT WAS INCOMPLETE.

  • Support staff is great. Provider doesn't have much to offer. If you don't ask a question he has nothing to offer. He doesn't seem to have an opinion or direction. He just goes through the motions. The MA asked all the right questions. He either doesn't read the answers or the file. Just seems to go through the motions.

  • Would have appreciated more of an explanation regarding reasons for the need for additional blood work

  • Reminding appointment date

  • Dr. Zuzarte is an excellent doctor and communicates concerns and health plans to be in better health. He is an excellent communicator and cares for his patients. Would definitely recommend him.

  • I'm very happy with Dr Zuzarte and his staff. They were able to get me a same-day telehealth visit, which worked well for me and my schedule. The staff is always friendly And helpful.

  • Always a pleasant experience with Dr. ZUZARTE

  • The doctor and staff listen to me. The doctor and staff are very busy, sometimes I would like to spend more time talking to them.

  • The staff have always been very amazing, very pleasant. My dad enjoys going to his visits. They're not something he dreads, which are some ways that we do go. They know who he is. It's always pleasurable. They're very kind, considerate, and the wait to get in is quite short, which is very pleasant because he can get frustrated where he's 86, almost 87. I really have never had a bad experience going to visit. I greatly appreciate your time and your patience. Have a great weekend.

  • Everything from start to finish from the time I was walking into the office from the time I left everything was explained clearly and was treated with respect and in a timely fashion I would say that everything went smoothly start to finish like I said and I was happy with the experience I appreciate what they do for me.

  • From my perspective, there is nothing that needs improvement

  • Dr. Zuzarte became my PCP today. He talked to me as if I've been his patient for years. He went over everything with me. I'm glad I have him as my doctor.

  • Provider didn't see like he care about my visit and I was pretty uncomfortable with my visit there they have me wait long time period to get call

  • I was able to get appt within the same day for a medical issue and was set up for treatment asap

  • The doctor, when he comes into the room to, to see you. He doesn't look at you. He just says, hello. Then he goes on the computer and I even tried to have a conversation with him, and he was so involved in the computer that he didn't even realize that I was talking to him sometimes. So I was very disappointed with that and this has happened for the last several visit that I had with him.

  • The receptionist was courteous and professional The rest of the staff some of them some disinterested and our professional.

  • Sometimes when i go to an appointment it seems as they are not familiar with my history when in fact ive been seen there many times. Overall my experience has been positive.

  • Happy with Dr. Zuzarte

  • Very happy with Dr Zuzarte . Always there for me

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.
