  • Referred to specialist when needed.

  • Nicole Arnold is the best provider I've ever had. I don't feel rushed, she seems to really be listening to any concerns and taking them seriously. She has a very caring and warm demeanor.

  • Listened and cared

  • Make communication with Southcoast easier, less wait times & beaurocracy on the phone. Also, it would be great o talk to someone who is actually in the office, rather than to a distant and unconnected answering service.

  • The staff were very personable and professional. I have not been to a PCP in several years. Given the impeccable customer service I received at SouthCoast, I will now continue with yearly checkups.

  • The reception staff were very pleasant & efficient. I didn't have to wait long to see my provider. We discussed my health fully, developed a plan for care and scheduled some follow up appointments. It was a good visit. I would recommend my provider to other people.

  • I think Nicole Arnold is one of the best providers I have ever seen. She really cared and listened to me. She made me feel great about my health concerns. I would highly recommend her to anyone!

  • Good care and empatheticu00A0

  • NP Nicole Arnold and her associates did a great job..

  • I just think this survey was too long. I don't mind taking survey, but this one was too long. Thank you.

  • It's fine the way it is.

  • Nothing to add

  • Nicole Arnold nurse practitioner is absolutely the best physician. That's why I have followed her from her last practice. I would be lost without her.

  • Nicole Arnold NP, Amy, and other office staff were AMAZINGLY caring & kind. They were by far the best experience that I've had to date with a doctors office, however this was my first doctors appointment in a long while, there was lots of info that I didn't have, and lines of questioning that was incredibly vague and probably didn't even begin to scratch the surface of what we both hope to see or accomplish with future visits. I was also disappointed that she didn't ask for previous medical records, I just moved from out of state, and although not my "current" history it still could be beneficial nonetheless.

  • All questions were answered and Flu shot was available. Thank you for the professional service and following Covid safety regulations.

  • Everyone in the office seemed so upbeat and helpful. This experience was a complete 180 from the offices I've been to in the past, in other states.

  • I just love my provider. She fully answered all my questions and explored some future concerns I may have.

  • [Name] was wonderful as always, pleasant and made me feel comfortable. Nicole and her PA student were also very attentive and quick with a plan on how to treat my pain.

  • The staff was wonderful. I got lost getting there because I'm from an hour away and they were very well and worked with me. They were courteous, came in and out all the time. Nicole is probably the best anybody is going to find. She listens to everything, explains everything and just truly cares about every one of her patients, Nicole Arnold. So, overall, the...the place was fantastic. Even the blood work that I went for after the girl was super, fast, was able to do hands didn't cause any pain and listened to everything I suggested. Overall, fantastic facility.

  • Professional and courteous

  • The whole visit took about 75 minutes from the time I arrived until I walked out - seemed too long for what I was there for.

  • Everything went very well! Will get bloodwork done next week. Couldn't get flu shot for theywere out of them. Will try later.

  • Had to wait almost 30 minutes before I was taken into an exam room.

  • Nicole Arnold was my provider at the Navy clinic. The best thing about turning 65 is that now i have to get care off-base, and she is my provider again. Even better than discount tickets at the movies….

  • This was my first appointment. I saw Nurse Practitioner Nicole Arnold, and really liked her!! She spent a lot of time discussing my health history and concerns. She took my care preferences into account, and explained things very clearly. I was very happy with the care I received from her!

  • Nicole Arnold always provides excellent care. She is knowledgable and takes the time to listen to our concerns; always ready to help out in any way. We are so grateful to be under her care. Thank you.

  • Everything does well!

  • Nicole Arnold is very patient and listens to you...something you don't always find in the profession. She does not rush you in order for you to explain why you feel the way you do, and what can we...meaning I the patient and she the Caregiver...do to make a 78 year old feel the best she can feel.

  • NP Arnold was knowledgeable, empathetic, made 2 imaging tests (one potentially very serious) happen at another facility late in afternoon. She was available to discuss after- hours, followed up next day. So nice to have support (including telephone) staff who are pleasant and efficient.

  • Telehealth exceeded my expectations and Nicole was thorough as usual.

  • The provider I saw, nurse practitioner called. She was really great. She listened to everything I had to say. And she really trusted me when I told her what my symptoms were and what I was feeling. And they were able to get me in and seen, and treated and a very quick and timely manner. And everyone seems like they just really cared about my health.

  • Absolutely love Dr. Arnold. None like her.

  • Very friendly made me feel comfortable

  • Polite, professional, and overall wonderful.

  • -quick response to MyChart request for appointment-short wait for scheduling appointment (2 days)-quickly taken in at the office-PA listened to my concerns and responded accordingly

  • 1st time there. Reception, nurse and provider all exceptionally friendly.

  • My questions have always been heard and answered. I have always been shown courtesy and attention. Care seems to be of highest quality.

  • Nicole listens!!!!

  • The initial call waiting times are unconscionable. We hesitate to call South Coast for fear we will be kept on hold half an hour or more. Once you do get through, the service is great--it's the wait time that's the problem.

  • NP Nicole was lovely as were the folks checking me in and providing check out.

  • The PA made me feel very comfortable and told me step by step what was going to happen while taking out my sutures.Was very professional .Thank you!

  • Nurse practitioner Nicole Arnold is a tremendous credit to the south coast Health system. I had had a trip and fall with multiple points of contact. This was a follow up visit after urgent care and x-rays. She examined every point of body contact, listened with an astute ear to my explanation of how I was feeling, and engaged me in a discussion of pain management, and techniques for moving with fractured ribs. I felt that she listened to me completely and replied with professional care and practical ways in which to feel better. She is an outstanding healthcare provider and I am grateful to be in her care.

  • I loved how I didn't feel rushed during my appointment and I was able to ask all my questions. Nicole Arnold, NP was fantastic! She was so friendly that I felt instantly comfortable talking with her and she was able to help explain several of my medical concerns. It's not often you find an empathetic ear in the medical community as often it seems like you're just a number on a list but that was not the case with Nicole. Thank you Southcoast Health!

  • Great human interaction

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.
