  • Can always get an appointment when needed.

  • This office does not communicate well. The appointment was moved and I had to call at my original time only to find out it was moved with no attempt to call me ahead of time and inform me. The provider is excellent, I just wish it was easier to talk to people in the office when needed.

  • I called Dr. Ryback was rather an emergency. I have a pinched nerve in my neck, and their response was incredible instantaneous. I had an appointment within a few hours. I came in and did see Dr. Ryback. He was extremely attentive and did a great job and analyzing and providing me with some relief as far as the the pain that I've been in.

  • Dr Ryback is the best PCP I’ve ever had. I can’t say enough good things about him

  • Everything was very timely, all personnel were courteous and helpful.

  • Professional,compassionate and informative.

  • Great Staff. precall very good . Dr. Ryback excellent.

  • Yes, I was very pleased with Dr. Ryback, and his staff, on I thought the TeleHealth visit went very well. The only area that might be helpful for improvement on a TeleHealth visit is the wait time. My appointment was 11:45. I spoke with the medical assistant at around 11:50, and was then told that the doctor would be right there. I ended up waiting, I'm not sure, but I know it was at least another 20/25 minutes, on a TeleHealth that can be a little bit difficult when you're just kind of sitting there waiting for that prompt to come up. And not, you know, having a waiting room right there where you can kind of get feedback. That's about it. Everything was really well done though. Other than that little bit of waiting, which wasn't a problem for me because I had the time carved out, but*

  • I chose to do a teleconference rather than an on site visit . Dr. Ryback ,as always , was kind , caring and compassionate. He listened patiently to my concerns , validated my feelings and offered helpful options and suggestions . I am very grateful to be one of his patients !

  • Dr Ryback has tremendous bedside manner. He gives you 100% of his attention and is just fantastic at answering questions and letting you express your concerns

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.
