  • Having been diagnosed with breast cancer last year, my care from the providers has been exceptional.

  • Dr braithwaite always is so thorough and caring. Wonderful personality. Wish I didn't have to go but she masked it comfortable

  • Dr. Braithwaite and her staff are professional, knowledgeable, friendly and overall amazing.

  • I've always been very happy with my care and have no complaints.

  • The kindness and professionalism at this facility is top notch. I was made to feel comfortable under demanding circumstances. My appreciation goes out to this facility for making a scary situation manageable with dignity and hope.

  • Everyone on staff was friendly and courteous. Everyone was positive and update on a Monday morning no less! Would definitely recommend this office.

  • Dr. Braithwaite is awesome. Just so caring, loving. You want to speak with her. Her staff is great, her mannerism. I...I can't say...enough good things about the woman. I...I wish everyone was able to experience the love and kindness...that she genuinely shows.

  • 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 have no doubt that the positive outcome of my breast cancer was very largely due to the excellent care I have received from South Coast

  • I was treated with kindness and respect.

  • Very attentive and informative

  • I am so overly happy with Dr. Braithwaite and 300 Faunce Corner Road in comparison to the treatment I received at Rosebrook. I will continue to drive the 40 minutes to go to Dr. Braithwaite's office because it's just like day and night. And I just want to express to you how wonderful it is being treated by her. 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.

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.
