Okay, thank you.

  • Very sympathetic to needs. Always willing to go an extra mile. I feel the receptionist Anne is a little cold.

  • The mammogram technician was extremely friendly and made sure I was comfortable during the screening. Kristen McLaughlin, NP was great. Listened to my concerns and explained everything to me in clear terms and reassured me.The only thing that maybe could have been approved was that I waited about 5 minutes to check-in because the only person there was on the phone and then got up and walked away for a minute, then came back and made another phone call before checking me in. She did at least acknowledge me at first, but it seemed like a long wait, even though it was probably only 5 minutes. There was no one ahead of me checking in.

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.
