  • I realize we are in pandemic. Too many "hoops" to jump through with Drs. VERY difficult.

  • Leah Murphy, RNP is outstanding as a medical professional. She is attentive, knowledgeable and caring. She is also very friendly and is able to make a person feel comfortable.

  • I was asking for treatment of gout. Leah Murphy answered my questions and prescribed prednisone . I took the first 2 tablets and last night I had NO PAIN! Thank you for your expertise and kindness!!

  • My concerns were handled immediately and efficiently. Solutions were recommended and steps to initiate these solutions were put in place immediately. Follow up was provided the next day to insure that I was okay and was much appreciated. I felt very comfortable that all avenues were followed to insure everything possible was being done.


  • My whole visit on the phone went extremely well.

  • Person on phone very patient with me as I sometimes get confused or are slow in understanding and remembering what she said. Thanks Leah

  • It was great not having to wait in a waiting room and being able to video chat right from the comfort of my home. I love this idea and hope to always have this as an option

  • Entire process went smoothly.Everyone who called me was a pleasure to speak with and I felt they sincerely cared and they just weren't "some voice on the other end" of the process.

  • Leah Murphy was the nurse practitioner and was caring and polite. Very professional. I however would not recommend Dr [Name] as he was just the opposite.

  • I spoke to Leah from Tiverton, who urged me to go to the ER, which I did. They gave me IV fluids to help my dehydration, which I had been working on with ice chips. Leah made the right call. Thank you so much!

  • I'm not someone who's ever normally is but I can tell you that an in person visit is a lot better than a phone in terms of collapsing time and getting to the chase.That said the individual who helped me was a really professional and nice and knowledgeable person. So I'm satisfied with what she did and left the call feeling good about her.

  • Informed response- very calming

  • Just treating me with respect and empathy.

  • Everything done was excellent and everyone was very pleasant and helpful. I would recommend this service to everyone. An excellent visit.

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.
