No one in my local area would listen to me. I will never leave Southcoast

  • Completely trust Dr Tokarz and staff..

  • My appointment was at 1030 I arrived at 1015 and was taken into the office at 1040- the I take was done right away however I did not see the doctor until 1135- I understand doctors run behind but no one came in to let me know that there were some issues going on and the doctor would be with me shortly- I had to go out and ask what was happening- I felt the staff and physician were excellent but the wait time without explanation was a huge issue/ the physician apologized when he came in but I have an issue when I am told to arrive early and then not see until 65 min after the appt was to start and if I was 10-15 min late I would be told that the doctor could not see me- in the future informing those in waiting rooms of the delay would be a big positive

  • Yes, I was in a lot of back pain, and I have been for the past month, and in the past, I have seen Dr. Tokarz, and I've gone to him for injections in my back, and the last time the injection lasted 14 months. So as it stands now my appointment was today, and I'm going in on Monday to have the injections again. So yes, I'm very happy with Dr. Tokarz, because like I said, I was in a lot of pain.

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: Helpfulness of Clerks & Receptionists, 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.
