  • Dr Arnold is a kind and compassionate provider. She always treats me with respect and provides the best advice that she can. She listens to me. That is the most important thing. Sometimes, I just need someone to listen to the issues. She reaches out to me for updates as soon as possible rather than waiting for the next visit. She might be home and I still get a phone call follow up to ensure that I am getting my medications in a timely manner. She follows up with specialists that cannot see me in time. She tells me how to manage new medical situations like with my long-term hospital visit. I wish I could take her with me when I travel because I have not had a doctor like this in a very long time. Most of all, when she has to perform diagnostics on me, she doesn't hurt me. Her staff also treats me with care. She is a fantastic doctor.

As someone who has experienced a number of odd health challenges and poor medical care, I cannot even begin to express how much I appreciate her kind demeanor. She makes me feel heard.

  • I had a good experience.Everything was well.

  • Referred to specialist when needed.

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.
