  • I called the office with concerns that I had covid and wasn't able to sleep. I immediately was gotten squeezed into a telehealth appointment and they helped me get a prescription for some cough meds which helped me to sleep and I was very thankful of it and then squeezing me in. The doctor was excellent. She asked me, evaluated my situation and she did an awesome job and addressed my concerns. Was very happy with the experience.

  • This was a first visit and it was largely a get to know about me Q&A session. It would have been nice not to wait 30 minutes in the lobby and another 15 minutes alone in the examining room.

  • Dr.Zeller was very kind professional an was on point with what I need to do to be in better health than I am an I was very happy to listen an do what needs to be done to reach my goals

  • Doctor saw I gained weight then gave me a long lecture about all the options and things I could do without ever asking more about my situation, just automatically started suggesting things without asking what I've tried or anything. Then when I mentioned I might have anxiety was automatically asked if I wanted meds. Overall did not feel like she understands anything about where I've come from or gave any useful information on how I want to approach my health and how I want to attempt to loose weight again.

  • My appointment was at 11am. I arrived at the office at 1045am. Was seen by support staff at 11am. Not seen by Dr until 1213pm.

  • The follow-up post physical is unclear. It is my understanding that I have to log onto a website to find out my results versus having a doctor call me to discuss the results. The dr I saw has a bedside manner that is very direct and lacks tact. A little diplomacy would be appreciated.

  • Listened to my concerns.

  • The whole staff is polite, professional and very attentive. I really like Dr. Zeller.

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.
