  • I felt that during the crisis, they handled themselves professionally and personally, like I was their only patient, Greatly appreciated.

  • Dr. Ryback is a very caring physician. I've been going to him for a long time and he always makes you feel comfortable, welcome, and that he's really listening and interested in your health. So, I would highly recommend Dr. Ryback in the office for South Coast Health.

  • I personally prefer an in office visit. This teleconference experience is not as personal as the one to one with my doctor. Given the pandemic it’s understandably best for all.

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

  • I was disappointed to have my yearly exam done by teleconference. I felt very, very rushed not able to really recall and explain everything I wanted to tell. My doctor as I see him infrequently. I didn't enjoy the tele, the video experience at all.

  • 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*

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.
