  • Hi, everything was perfect, except the receptionist was a little bit less than attentive, but everybody else was very good.

  • Great staff

  • Knowledgeable, compassionate- great combination

  • It has always doing with Dr. Mark is an absolute pleasure any question, I asked I get a thorough answer to he gives me personal suggestions on improving Health, well, being and I've been with him for over 18 years and will continue to make him my primary care doctor. Thank you.

  • Dr. Ringerwitz is excellent. I called at 8:30am when the office opened. I had covid 3 weeks prior and had been testing negative for 1 week. I was having a covid related complication and they told me they had no sick that day or the next. That a nurse would call me soon and go over things. A nurse finally called me back at 11:45. When I told her what I told the secretary about my health she said they should have given me an appointment. I have been. Patient here at the office in Swansea for a long time. Anytime I call for a sick appointment this same thing happens. They don't have any appointments for several days.

  • Very professional and timely

  • I was extremely satisfied that I was not pushed to come into the office

  • Visit went well. Blood test left large bruising on arm.

  • Seemed not to care, rushed

  • At times feels like just another typical patient....a little more concern would be helpful. Patients should be first and foremost in an medical setting.

  • My experience at...with the physician was excellent. He was extremely knowledgeable, extremely helpful, explained everything clearly and completely, and I had complete confidence in the visit and the support staff, as usual at Swansea Family Practice. So I have nothing but good things to say about the institution, about the people, about the staff, and about the physicians who work there.

  • No comment. It was outstanding!!!

  • Everyone was very efficient and helpful. Dr Ringiewicz was very concerned because I hadn't been there for quite a while. He made sure that I was checked out and had all of the prescriptions that I needed. I will be going back for blood work this week. To make sure that everything is ok.

  • The dct was very nice and explained my concerns

  • Provider see me in a timely manner thanks a bunch

  • I could not ask for a better doctor.

  • I appreciate that my thoughts, ideas and issues are always taken seriously.

  • I think a telehealth would have been better in my case because he didn't even look at me just booked another appointment with a specialist also the lab was closed and now I have to go back for labs that they couldn't book for 5 days later

  • I have been going to this office for years. I have always been seen by a doctor very quickly, with in a day or two. Very happy here wouldn't think of changing now.

  • The doctor was helpful. The support staff can be abrasive at times. The nurse was difficult to reach on the phone but at least made the appointment with the doctor which was reassuring.

  • Excellent service

  • Very caring and helpfull and eager to help me while I was sick

  • Easy to schedule appointment. Team was professional. Dr was prompt and professional.

  • I was able to be seen a week earlier than my scheduled appt because I was having so much pain. I saw a provider I'd never seen before, but he was quick and I was in and out within 20 mins which was great.

  • Shots are never offered or mentioned such as pneumonia, shingles etc. Never approached about scheduling mammogram, colonoscopy. I am 56 and have been a patient for at least 6 years. I have had serious conditions that were t addressed. Phone calls by other professionals trying to help are not returned.

  • Everything was great. Telehealth is a great concept!

  • My appointment when they called was right on time. I had follow up information i talked to two different nurses, two different times. And then my doctor call me at 4:15. So everything went well, I would do it again. Thank you.

  • Every time I've been with this provider hes not my primary be it for myself or children. Hes not very nice hes really cold an rude. I seriously question coming back here EVERY time I see this dr. Today was no exception I left in tears. I never feel heard I literally feel like I'm wasting his time an that he could honestly care less about my well being. He really shouldn't work with people. Maybe more behind the scene but Not with people. I really am contemplating leaving this office I've been with my primary dr. Over 20 years an the staff have been rude an just don't make you feel like they used too! I used to feel like part of a family there not anymore even my primary dr. He doesn't seem like he's interested in my well being like before. Never goes over my bloodwork with me i gotta Google my results mychart doesn't explain anything.. This is even before covid happened something changed there an not for the better. I really loved coming here everyone used to be so nice an welcoming now I always feel like a bother an trying to get an appointment now is crazy. Whats the point of having a dr. If you can barely get an appointment. I feel bad writing this but I've held it in way too long. An after today's appointment it needs to be said.

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.
