  • Everything was great I never have a problem

  • I met a new physician and after 30+ years I'm starting over and it just feels weird. My old doctor knew me ( and my family) very well. I am 60 years old and it's going to be a challenge to become comfortable.

  • I was seen on time. The check-in receptionist was very polite and thorough. The nurse was very professional and explained all the preliminary procedures, Dr. Montorzi was very thorough and professional in asking about my health issues. He answered all of my questions and explained the follow-up procedures and lab work. Very pleased with how I was treated for the entire medical appointment. Professional, Polite, and competentpeople.

Relationship, partnership, and trust is care is important to all of us: MD, Patient, and Parents! Tysm!

  • Ability to have lab work done on the day of the appointment

  • Dr. Montorzi, MA [Name] and the check-in and check-out professionals were all wonderful to me. Since my AVM, I am hard to understand, my ambulation is difficult, and the involuntary muscle movements it left me with are painful. They make my decades of fibromyalgia, GERD and other ailments seem easy by comparison. I was delightfully surprised that Dr. Montorzi and his team all made my life so much easier. I am grateful to them for their compassion and expertise. Be proud, Southcoast!

  • No need for improvement. Satisfied…happy.

  • It was very hard to schedule labs/bloodwork. I was not able to do it while I was there and had taken time off work for this. I now have to go back in two weeks which is ridiculous.

  • It was a positive experience. Everyone was friendly and the wait time was less than 5 minutes

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.
