  • I wish I had been seen earlier when my back was bothering me more. As this is an ongoing and intermittent problem it would have been more satisfactory if I was still having a lot of pain.

  • Marie Aguiar, NP was fabulous and set me completely at my ease as she explored my history and examined me. Her lovely sense of humor and kind professional demeanor set me very much at ease despite my anxiety about the pain I was experiencing. I also very much appreciated the kindness of the man who was checking for covid sx at the entrance. He is simply a fabulous empathic human being!

  • Yes, she did an excellent job and always does. Thank you.

  • Very knowledgeable and caring

  • Yeah, the provider I had today Aguiar, Marie Aguiar was very condescending, was actually kind of rude and was just really didn't listen to what I had to say and kind of made me feel like I shouldn't even be there and almost like I was...I felt like intimidated, like she made me feel like she thought I was faking symptoms and my injuries, which I have no reason to, it's not like I was in a car accident or something and I'm going to have any financial gain from this appointment. I have absolutely no nothing financially to gain. I was was awful. I was really taken aback by her demeanor and also all my interaction with the staff there *

  • For my first visit I was very happy with my encounter. Provider was very nice, attentive and listened. Office staff also very pleasant and promptly followed up to schedule next appointments

  • thorough, efficient, and approachable

  • The only reason that I would be hesitant to recommend this provider, is because in my case, she was had no bed- side manner the 1st time, until she found out that I actually had things wrong. Then she was so nice to me on the 2nd visit. I was actually considering not going, she had been so rude!

  • I did wait almost a half hour for my appointment which made me feel like my time is not valuable. My provider did spend quality time with me however.

  • I didn't bring all the information I needed to the appointment, these appointmentss take a while to get in cuz it's a specialist. So it wouldn't take a long time again she took a half hour lunch so I could get in in less than a week. She made sure I understood everything, and made sure she was answering my questions I knew everything I was going on.

  • NP Aguiar was very respectful,knowledgeable and compassionate.Exuding professionalism thereby making my visit a very comfortable one.Thank you.

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.
