  • Hi, I just want to say that I've been going to Dr. Kenath Shamir for over 20 years and their staff is best everyone in there. So kind and make sure that you get your your appointments and they check up on you and I'm on under the care. Climate care situation and they also called, you know every so often I I can't say enough about Dr. Shamir. He's kind he's thorough. He has everything that you need to know and he also knows everything about you and I think it's fair to say that I give him attend. I know clothes into the clinic. They have the best doctors, I think.

  • I had to use my phone for the experience, which was okay, but I would have preferred my laptop.

  • Both calls (preliminary and Dr Shamir ) went extremely smoothly .... Thank you

  • I got promp service and the staff was caring.

  • Everything was perfect

  • Prompt response with a virtual visit with Dr. Shamir. He was very thorough in evaluating my problem and explaining his recommended treatment.

  • This was a tele-visit die to Covid-19. The MA as well as Dr. Shamir were receptive to my needs and I feel that I received a thorough visit even though it was by telephone. In the face of this Pandemic, it’s good to know our providers are finding ways to help us and continue care. Thanks

  • They're very cooperative, intelligent very informative.

  • This was my first visit with the doctor at this facility...although I have been to the faciltiy many times before. Since it was a first visit, I would not expect that the physician would know all about my background. My doctor was, however, very pleasant, easy to talk to, and knowledgeable. I was happy with my visit.

  •  Dr. Shamir did an outstanding job. He does an awesome job. I couldn't be happier with him and I would highly recommend them to any members of my family or any friends of mine.

  • I have never seen this healthcare provider in a timely manner ( more than a 10-15 minute wait)...... I have been a patient for more than 20 years and am seriously considering going to another practice and one outside the South Coast system.

  • The worst part of the whole experience was having to answer all these questions. I'm not feeling very well and I think you said should take that into consideration when you're calling people.

  • Listened and asked relative questions

  • Everything was excellent. The doctor was real good, I was very impressed with him. He explained everything. I could not ask for that a doctor. My doctor is real good to, Dr. [Name] and she explains everything excellent, and I will ... I love the place I go to. But this doctor explained everything and I was very very happy.

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.
