  • Hi, my name is [Name] [Name] Kristen was very knowledgeable, helpful, caring, and kept up to date with calling me to try to get me back in for a follow up appointment.

  • My visit was fine. I just wanted to offer input that there are too many surveys that are requested and everybody short on time it's not enough time In the day to answer a survey about every visit that we have that is not directed specifically at this office. That's more at South Coast in general. Thank you.

  • good

  • Kristen did an awesome job and the office tree set me up with the doctor from [Name] So for the work out my issues, so I was very satisfied with her. Thank you.

  • I like tele health with a NP or PA. But I am hoping that the physician gets the true nature of me as a patient may be in. Information is being given through others that don't necessarily have the expertise. Not to suggest that those that assist the "doctors" are not qualified.

  • My appointment was at 2pm and I wasn't seen until 3. When I met with the provider some kind of an acknowledgement of my time waiting would've been nice. Also, if they are running behind maybe let us know when we check in so we can decide if we can stay. I almost missed another appointment bc of that. My time is just as important as theirs.

  • Kristen Skaar seemed to sense that I was nervous during the appointment, and she did not judge me.She demonstrated compassion and kindness as she provided the necessary information and as she explained the results of my tests.

  • Yes, she was more. She was better. Was explaining things to me and being optimistic. Trying to keep me positive. So that's what I that's what I like the about Kristen. Because I get nervous with doctors. Okay.

  • Try to actually care for the patient's health concerns instead of trying to rush them out in 5minutes.

  • Was satisfied with my experience

  • excellent staff and very understanding

  • I was very pleased even though she was new was concerned about how I was feeling. And the best way to look further. About my situation.

  • My appointment was for 1:40 she didn't call me until 2:30 that is a very long wait time I called at 2 and was told it would only be a few more minutes not 30 minutes

  • Waited over 1/2 hr in exam room to see provider. Should be informed the provider is running behind schedule

  • Keep doing what you do!! And thank you for being in the front line.

  • Scheduled telehealth visit was 55 minutes late.

  • This was my first meeting with Kristen and I must say she was terrific. She listened carefully to my history, had information at our fingertips, recommended a new course of medication, which so far today has worked very well. I found her very easy to talk to and to understand it was great. Thank you.

  • No room for always treated well. Thank you.

  • I appreciated the follow up. Thanks

  • I waited a half hour and call the doctor's office, and they told me that she was an hour half hour behind and I waited another half hour. And finally, she called me on that. The I believe is the office should have been calling me first to tell me that bye.

  • Every thing went well. I don't know if anything would improve my experience. We kept intouch when we needed to, especially through my chart.

  • I had questions and concerns regarding my health and All of my concerns were addressed.After the meeting with my health care professional, I fell extremely comfortable with our conversation. Excellent Service.u00A0

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.
