  • Provider was very informative. Very courteous, and polite. The entire staff was very polite and I felt very comfortable with my visit.

  • Explained and gave me options

  • The staff is always pleasant and helpful and accomodating with their schedule.The wait time is very low.

  • I waited one hour in the waiting room for a ten minute appointment.

  • Great experience overall.

  • I met the nicest nurse practitioner. Honestly! I met with Marie Aguiar, N.P. , I felt like I knew her for years! I had a post operative appointment and was concerned about many issues. She put me at ease right away. She really listened and I felt very comfortable and confident about my care after I left the appointment. She’s a wonderful asset to SouthCoast!

  • Good,

  • The neuro surgeon dr harrison was awesome. The whole neuro team is amazing. The girls at the desk are wonderful. Maria aguiar gave me great info and was sympathetic to my pain and my situation. From hospital to office...amazing!!!

  • Generally you did good. Only criticism was what seemed like a longish wait (15 min past appointment time). Mainly it was long since the room was fairly devoid things to look at or read. Maybe some classical music piped in?

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.
