  • After waiting 2 1/2 weeks for a CAT scan on my broken ankle when the...Michael Griffin called me over an hour after my telephone visit was scheduled, he did not have all of the answers that I was expecting, nor that he had told me he would have because the doctor over seeing him was on vacation.

  • Had a 2 hour wait to see somebody.

  • Mike was very nice talks in way I can understand he kind he listens well Do better get more like mike

  • Everything was explained and any questions I had were answered. Staff was extremely polite and helpful.

  • Michael Griffiths was calm and sincere. I asked for someone else to be in the room during my cortisone injection. [Name] came in and held my hand and helped me breathe through my anxiety. The injection did not hurt nearly as badly as It did when Dr. [Name] treated me. This is was much better experience than it was before. Michael Griffiths injected the cortisone on the other side of my hurting knee and that alone made a huge difference.

  • I did not feel rushed but everyone took time need for through appointment

  • This provider was very knowledgeable and explained in detail my diagnosis and my options and listened attentively to my issues and concerns. I was very impressed and may switch all my specialty doctor to South Coast Health. I liked the speed with which I was able to make an appointment. I am impressed with South Coast.

  • satisfactory

  • My opinion they were wonderful explain me everything I needed to know they were absolutely professionals

  • Michael Joseph Griffin [PA] took the time to listen, ask questions, and then actually listen again; without interrupting, EVER. That's an extremely important attribute to me, yet sadly it's a rare one in this day of age. His examination was very thorough, and comprehensive; while still asking questions. Once completed; he informed me of his findings, and explained in detail what it meant, as well as his recommended course of treatment. After I concurred, he oversaw setting up an MRI, and follow up visit. Appears to be excellent in his field, I was very pleased. Respectfully,

  • Pleasant, professional, understanding group.

  • It was ok

  • Honestly I received a dignifying treatment from the provider. I have no negative comments about anything.

  • PA Griffin was professional and informative. He communicated well and listened to my issue.The only negative was the scheduling of follow up treatments/visits for MRI and neurosurgery. The neurosurgery appointment was scheduled before the MRI which made the visit untimely. The printed appointment schedule is a little unclear when the appointment is "requested" vs. an actual appointment.

  • Experience was great. Glad I went wish I had made the appointment sooner. Would recommend Michael Griffin and would not hesitate to see him again.

  • First of all he listened and then explained findings, etc. My concerns and needs were addressed. It was very comfortable talking with him. I did not feel rushed in and out.

  • The Radiology technician should have asked where on my hand the problem was. She'd assumed it was in the metatarsals until I told her; but the X-ray facing that general area was shot already.

  • I was thoroughly informed about my condition, ans explained in an easy way to understand.

  • The doctor I seen was male don't like male doctors but he was polite soft spoken I understand everything he said how we was gonna go about my care best way to do it and how start it I give him 100

  • Michael Griffin is very knowlegable and caring

  • Courtesy at every turn, friendly staff

  • Michael Griffin was responsive, kind, helpful.

  • The main problem was that the PA spent a a good amount of time explaining why it is so important that I get both my knees rebuilt.Then we went to see the scheduler and were told that it would be months and months before I could actually get the operations because the doctor was too busy!There was no point to the whole appointment!

  • Appointment was on time great provider explained everything very easy will continue seeing this Dr

  • Everything went great. No need for improvement.

  • The entire staff is so friendly and kind always helping to assure I get well.

  • Michael Griffin is Excellent..Professional, and patient about explaining treatment options. I was impressed by his manner and knowledge, and felt complete trust in his diagnosis.

  • I made an appointment. It took 4 more weeks and, before I could have an appointment with the physician. The day before I was to have the appointment, it was canceled. It was due to weather problems, but I was told it would be another 4 weeks before I could get, see the physician and so, I agreed to see the PA instead. The PA was wonderful, but I really wanted to see a physician and my injury had occurred 6 weeks pre admiss.

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.
