  • Our experience could have been improved by knowing that we needed to have this appointment in the head of time so that I could have scheduled it on my day off come, but also in order to be able to have enough time. We had to do a physical and a med check that have to be scheduled right away in order to have a medication refilled and had no notice, so they had to squeeze us in and I really felt like we were rushed I didn't get to get enough information from the provider and I know he has other patients to get in to see so I kind of felt like we were rush through didn't get the answers we were looking for and I'm not very comfortable with whole scenario. Thank you.

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.
