  • I was treated with the utmost respect , kindness and empathy at every visit with Doctor Chung and her staff. I can't thank them enough for all they have done is one thing in my opinion that could be addressed in reference to checking in. It's not private enough. Everyone waiting in that area hears everything being said to the client checking in and that should be private.

  • Everybody was courteous and saw me right away, checked me in. It was very easy to check in and the office staff was very friendly and made me feel very comfortable. They worked with me to make sure my appointments were in a timeframe that I could handle. And I absolutely adore Dr. Chung. I think she's very relatable, very easy to understand and spoke to me in length. I did not feel rushed. I felt like she took her time and she spent time with me and knew a lot about my case and made sure to do research before she even walked in the door, which was very impressive. And I absolutely think I would recommend her. I do recommend her to other people in my family.

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.
