The lines back up to 10 to 12 people in line. Some patients on crutches, in cast on legs, foot. Patients should not have to wait in line like that for a 1/2 hour.

I do realize situations change, however I just wish they would honor the original appts. they make.

  • Staff was very polite. Dr seemed to be rushed. Was somewhat put off by him trying to talk to me about the Bariatric program. I was there for my shoulder not my weight. Then when I said no he said well if you change your mind we a program. Like trying to recruit me.

  • My visit was thorough. Everything was great.

  • He was very courteous and very helpful.

  • The staff was very nice.

  • The provider could have been more open about what his capabilities were to my situation. If he didn't feel he could do my procedure then he should have said so earlier in this 4 month process. Now I'm beginning the process over with another doctor and it's not right.

  • Thank you for the greatest office visit experience.

  • There's one thing for a doctor to understand the challenges of pain due to injuries sustained in a gym lifting weights but it's another when he actually has the life experience!

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.
