  • Dr. Came to the appointment not knowing the background. "Why are you here?" Is how the consult started. I was referred so I would have thought she would have at least looked at my information beforehand. Lastly, she could not understand my family history. Her last comment to me was"your family history is convoluted". All other doctors understand it.

  • Noting everything was great

  • I had breast biopsies and there were many people being attentive and reassuring me, obviously trained for this. Later, in the last mammogram, this was very different, a kind of cold matter-of fact approach that was noticeable because it was so different from the earlier part of the day. It was OK - just so very different.

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.
