  • Just a good experience all around.

  • The Dr. Was able to figure out what was causing my issue. He also gave me the solution to it. He thoroughly explained everything.

  • Very professional

  • Addressed my concern. I called early morning and was not attended to much later on the day.

  • In the past it was simple to call the office directly and speak to someone to either leave a message for a physician or to schedule an appointment. I waited almost 30 minutes, on hold, to speak with someone in the call center to schedule my appointment. This is unacceptable. There is no reason it should take that long to speak to a human and schedule an appointment. What if I had a quick question for a nurse or NP? The "business" of health care has taken away from the relationships patients have developed over time with their providers.

  • My visit was good. Nothing could have been done differently for a better experience.

  • I felt safe visiting this facility due to the precautions that they follow due to COVID-19. I was promptly greeted and brought to an examination room. Staff were very friendly.

  • Immediate response to email and quick follow up call. Appointment the following day with Dr

  • Both the doctor and student doctor were very pleasant to talk to. They took their time listening to all of my details and to explain their thoughts regarding my health concerns.The only issue was that I waited a while in between seeing the student doctor and seeing the doctor but I assume that was only to report what we talked about. I also waited awhile for someone to bring me to the blood work area.

  • Everything was great

  • When I had test done he always provided my information timely.

  • No idea. Seems darn good to me.

  • I saw Dr. Ringiewicz today and was able to get an appointment The same day I waited in the office only a couple of minutes before he came in I felt safe as I was screened before coming in and the staff was very courteous and helpful when the doctor came in he was very thorough and did some diagnostic testing been going to this facility for over 30 Years Best Medical facility they really care about their patients

  • Yes, the doctor was thorough in his examination and his recommendations and that's why I enjoyed my visit to your location.

  • A very good experience.

  • On time. Very courteous. Detailed.

  • Less wait time on phone( 15 minutes) also my telehealth visit provider never called even though they claimed they did ( happened to my wife previous day as well) so I had to reschedule for following day.... same thing happened. Something is not right there in the office

  • Treated very well by ALL. Needed to be seen same day. Appt made for a few hours later. Person on phone,Reception, check in, nurse and Doctor all were great. No improvements needed.

  • This was my second appointment with Dr Ringiewicz and he treated me like an old friend which really help me feel comfortable. He was very efficient and professional with the exam and addressed all my concerns. The entire staff was amazing and well organized with the new COVID-19 protocols.

  • Swansea Family Practice has always been very concerned and caring when I or my husband came for appointments - [Name] is no longer alive - but I continue to see Dr. Mark Ringiewicz and he is the best Primary Physician anyone could ask for.

  • 45-50 minute wait from check in to talking to Doctor.

  • Not really sure how to make it better and normally I have a lot to say

  • No need for improvement

  • The whole experience was above average!

  • I felt very safe. And comfortable with distancing

  • Telemedicine is not a good substitute for a face to face meeting.

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.
