  • This is the nicest office I have been to in my whole life. Everyone is courteous, respectful and caring. Always checking up on me, asking if I needed anything while waiting for the invasive ultrasound. They went over what to expect and possibilities that may happen. I had a complication on 2/25 and I was asked when I could come on. They saw me in less than 1 hour. The staff is absolutely amazing.

  • How to wait a long time for test results

  • The entire staff at South Coast is kind considerate and aid in healing because they treat the patient and not the tumor. Having breast cancer is scary but I had absolute confidence throughout the process with my team. Dr. Braithwaite is very good at explaining things and helping me to make informed decisions.

I actually look forward to my visits to this office. So, thank you.

  • Great experience overall

  • Dr. Braithwaite is an excellent provider she has outstanding bedside manner and always asks if it's okay with me to do exams or proceed with testing etc. She answers all of my questions. And I have many questions each time. She makes sure I know the plan for my health and always asks if I am okay with the plan. And is sure to inform me of all my options. The only problem I had was with clerical staff I didn't get her name but when I had called before my appt to schedule my next MRI she questioned it because I'm younger (25) but I get imaging done now because I am at high risk for breast cancer. To me to say to a patient "let me see if you really need this you're only 25" is insensitive. It is a follow up imaging recommended by the radiologist after my previous biopsy. These appts are already emotionally difficult for me so the staffing that makes appts at the desk should be reminded that age does not necessarily dictact treatment and to be mindful of that

  • From my experience no improvement is needed. The entire staff from the front desk through was kind, friendly, knowledgeable and through. It was my first time at this facility and I was well cared for.

  • Quick, efficient and caring.

  • Every time I am at this office everything goes like clockwork. My questions are answered, I am listened too and the staff work to assist me to meet my healthcare needs. One of the best offices I have been in.

  • Treated with respect. Staff was very sympathetic to my needs. Where very professional

  • I had a very good experience with my mammogram after 1 after one year time from been treated for breast cancer. [Name] My technologist was awesome and Dr. Braithwaite goes without saying she's so kind and caring and she listens, and she understands what I think women go through and I rate you a 10 across the board.

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.
