  • Staff was professional and appointment was respected.

  • Everything was great. I cannot think of anything to do to make a visit better.

  • Nicole Arnold NP and staff are the best I have ever seen, anywhere. The office staff was extremely efficient, and so kind. Nicole is the BEST. Great COVID-19 protocols too.

  • Everyone was very pleasant and helpful and the provider and her assistant/triage nurse we're very thorough!! Much appreciated! Thank you!!

  • This was the best experience I've had with primary care since my childhood.

  • Very good visit. Nicole Arnold was very easy to communicate with and took my input as far as needing a referral very seriously.

  • From the time I walked in to when I left, it was a great well rounded experience!! Every one very professional! The facility was nice, well maintained.

  • Nicole explained everything that happened and what needs to be done. She gave me lots of information about results and test. Very professional

  • Nicole Arnold is an incredible provider. She is an active listener and speaks with - not at - her patients. I'mSo glad I switched primary providers to her!

  • I was seen right away. The nurse was very thorough and made me feel comfortable. The NP then saw me and was so knowledgeable and caring. I felt at ease and trusted her diagnosis and recommendations.

  • Just a bit of a wait in the exam room. However computers were down today so maybe that was the delay.

  • On time. Treated with respect. Nurse practitioner was clear and knowledgeable.

  • The staff was very friendly. Efficient. Very quick. But... but thorough, but again extremely friendly atmosphere. All staff seemed very happy with what they were doing, and happy with their jobs.

  • This was the most efficient visit I have had with any health care provider. I felt like 10 issues were solved in 30 mins with real and attainable results. Friendly, informative, and really listened to the health care questions and concerns I had.

  • Nicole Arnold and [Name] always are kind, courteous, and attentive. They value me as a patient and provide the most exceptional care that my children and I have ever received. We are truly grateful to be under their care.

  • Everything was great. They have a great staff. I felt very comfortable and taken care of.

  • 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.

  • Everything was great except the computer wasn't working to pull up my chart. Obviously technical issues aren't the staff's fault and did not really affect my visit. I felt very comfortable with Nicole and would recommend her as a PCP

  • They listen! N

  • Everything was great, doctors and staff were all helpful and polite

  • Love the staff. Love Nicole. Best !!!!!!!!

  • Nicole Arnold was an excellent person to deal with. My wife referred me to her and she was right. I will definitely be coming back!

  • Nicole Arnold is wonderful. She takes the time to listen and also takes the time to provide solutions. She makes me feel at ease and it is evident she cares about my well-being. 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.

  • 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!

  • You have a great staff.The response time from the app my chart is A+I really appreciate the great response timeThe online access is greatThank you

  • Great responses to my my medical needs.Available for follow up.Could not be better!

  • Great staff, very friendly and helpful

  • Nicole Arnold Was great and spent time at my initial appointment going over my health history. I felt very comfortable with her and she seemed knowledgeable about the issues I face.

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.
