  • Dr. Montorzi is excellent. He is very knowledgeable and is well prepared for my visit. He does his review before my appointment. He doesn't rush me and explains everything to my satisfaction. Wish all my South Coast doctors were as good as him.

  • I would like to bring to your attention a lady I met during my visit. Her name is [Name] and she is the Doctor's Medical Assistant. [Name] provided excellent treatment and went out of her way to make my visit enjoyable.

  • Dr Montorzi took time to ask and listen, and help provide solutions. He was a little late because I assume he didn't hurry the person before me either, and I appreciate that. When the information about the dermotologist wasn't available because she was outside the network, he gave me his card to request that he did get all of the information. So, I think he does a great job.

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.
