  • I was seen a hour later than my appointment was scheduled. The provider did not even apologize and no one did unless i asked when will i be seen, i believe that was very unprofessional and completely out of line . They need to be aware and respectful of peoples time. This was just extremely rude and not to even apologize was worse. I didn't even have time to get a shot i needed because once again I was left to wait in the room and i had errands to run.

  • no suggestions for improvement. The appointment was on time and the doctor and thorough and attentive.

  • Every thing was great!

  • Very personable, easy to understand, listens, supportive

  • Everything went well

  • Dr. Zeller is a wonderful physician. She is knowledgeable and caring. I wish staff would let her do her work without knocking and interrupting. I had a major physical at 8 and another visit was scheduled for her at 830. It's hard to start an appointment at 8 when you just open the doors at 8. Dr zeller needs a special thanks or commendation. South coast is very lucky to have her and I blessed that she is my doctor.

  • Greeting was appropriate for Covid time.

  • Efficient check in procedure. Friendly and competent staff. Provider is practical in her approach, listens well, is patient kind and compassionate She takes her time and isn't rushed.Logging information into the computer during the office visit is why this provider doesn't get a 10 out of 10.

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.
