  • I didn't appreciate being told my appointment was going to be at 3:15 and not be called until 4:45. Just because i'm home doesn't mean I have all day to be waiting for a phone call. I work and have a home to take care of. I feel that was very unprofessional.

  • Hi. The ... I appreciate TeleHealth. It's an excellent service. The support staff was great. I had an appointment and the ... the care provider was supposed to call me back at that appointed time and then (INAUDIBLE) to my work day, so I took some time off from work. And it was an hour and 15 minutes later than the appointment was made for. It was very inconvenient for me. I am grateful to have had the appointment, but it was awful to have to wait an hour and 15 minutes. So that's my feedback. Thank you so much.

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.
