  • Leah Murphy nurse practitioner was outstanding in every way. Leah and the nurse made me feel incredibly cared for. They both were exceptional in their own way. I am extremely grateful for the care they provided to me, and how special they made me feel. They certainly made all the difference in my illness. Million thanks.

  • Leah was so professional yet caring and understanding, made me feel at ease "talking"

  • Every aspect of this visit was positive. I got an appointment quickly and had almost no wait time when I arrived. Leah was thoughtful and informative when discussing options for treatment. Leah was also very thorough in discussing further steps such as physical therapy and very patient in explaining medications etc.. She showed empathy, seeming to understand that the pain I was experiencing made it difficult for me. She took the time to make sure that I understood how the medications worked.

  • Once again this practice was so helpful with getting my son an appointment at the last minute for a complaint with his ear that was making him really uncomfortable. There was a lot of compassion and quick response and I really appreciate it.

  • Leah was terrific. She listened carefully to my concerns and was responsive.

  • It took 3 separate phone calls to speak with a provider (in the past sometimes 4 or more). But in the 3rd phone call when I spoke with Leah she was kind, knowledgeable, explained things thoroughly and was generally a pleasure to speak to/work with.

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.
