  • Very caring, warm, and thorough. Could not be any better!

  • At this time, I cannot identify an area that requires improvement.

  • There's really not much that they could have done to improve it. Every time I call, they seem to be on top of things. Sometimes things do take a little bit longer than usual, but that's to be expected I guess because of the staffing issue and stuff, but I always seem to get my issues resolved and Dr. Brillantes and the girls in the office and always been very caring and compassionate and we've been going there for a lot of years and we would never change.

  • Hi. Yes I was, I was pleased with all staff and all the Dr. Miguel's office and his team my primary care and I do enjoy going there. Every time they go through everything with me, and doctor's very good to me. Thank you.

  • I was seen in a very timely manner. The front desk staff was very helpful with my insurance and I think that there's such a focus on the doctor, taking all these notes, to make sure he's needing these scores and these questions that you guys ask for surveys. And he's more concerned with what he's putting in the computer and actually listening to me and talking to me. And it may be a result of the way he's being measured by the company. So you might want to rethink these survey questions.

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.
