  • I am being treated for my neck and pain down my arm due to cervical disk problems. I discussed possible disability and the provider said I needed to see ortho to fill out paperwork where I do not understand where that was applicable. I think it would be neuro!!! I left office confused and will have my primary help me. He did schedule another epideral for me to help with nerve pain from my neck, not shoulders!!

  • Provider seemed to judge me and does not even know me.

  • I did not appreciate waiting for over an hour in the waiting room. The doctor gave me one option. Injections in my spine When I said no was told there was nothing he could do for me. Oh yes! The pain and problem was only going to worsen with time. Like I didn't know that already! Was a waste ofy time and the insurance companies payment!

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.
