  • 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

  • This was my first visit and I was very happy about the treatment I received. Thank you.

  • Everyone was kind, respectful and attentive. The staff are very welcoming and professional everytime I have called or have been there in person. I have recommended them to my friend and a family member who were looking for a health care provider.

  • Made all arrangements for other tests. Made a plan for my treatment.

  • Since my PCP joined south coast health group it is nearly impossible to see her. I am forced to see a NP which is very frustrating and makes the parents of the Doctor feel unimportant. I had a test result that made me worried and nobody approached me, and I then asked. Still no communication.

  • The response time on an emergency call in mid afternoon was phenomenal. I was not expecting a call back until the following day, I not only received a call back, I end d up with a telehealth visit a short time later. I was very thankful and very pleased.

  • The provider was wonderful. I think the survey is too wordy. I think it should be refined. Thank you.

  • Took time explaining about my medication and what was going to change. I felt much better after that decision. Very good visit.

  • Excellent service and no need for improvement.

  • She explained the possibility what was happening. And the approach we were going to take. Very thorough

I also feel that the front office staff and the individuals who have been working from home when a patient calls in our very considerate and they try to take care of things in a timely fashion. I think this is an excellent facility with providers that genuinely care about the patients.

  • Hello. I just wanted to say that Nicole Arnold was very professional, and she was concerned and she answered any questions that I had and she talked about the vaccine. Have a good day. Bye.

  • Always professional, friendly and courteous, knowledgeable

  • The intake nurse who did my vitals on this visit was the best I have ever had at Southcoast. Very personable and thorough. My nurse practitioner is always very knowledgeable and attentive . The only thing that would improve my experience is the fact that I don't think they remember me specifically or my health record. I don't go in but once a year, so I get that, but it makes me wonder if I shouldn't go to a private office.

  • My pcp just resigned so this was my first visit with Nicole Arnold. I don't have a history with her, but was impressed and plan to stay with her.

  • Dr. Nicole is so friendly and real. Happy I found her !

  • Had 5 staples removed. Everyone was terrific.

  • Listened and I did not feel rushed

  • I was seen right away for a problem that I encountered that day. I was very appreciative of Nicole Arnold and Dr. [Name] [Name] for seeing me because I had to be seen that day. They were both very very professional and very helpful with the problem that I was having. Southcoast is very lucky to have both of them representing their Hospital facility.

  • I received care from NP Arnold, who was excellent. Being 77, I sometimes feel my age "gets in the way" with some professionals but not with this lady. She listened, did not dismiss and we are persueing my issues.

  • I was so glad to have a reasonably immediate appointment and address my issue. The call procedure was a bit awkward, with a few calls the hour before the appointment I didn't expect. I would have helped if upon making the appointment I was told that I'll need to allow space an hour before my appointment for check in calls and routines. The team was all good spirited and professional, thank you!

  • We had an audio tech problem so we had to finish appointment with a call back to explain.

  • Great customer service and kind employees

  • Virtual visit could not be completed as I could not hear the NP clearly. Continued visit on the phone. Good visit but that was disappointing as it would have been helpful to show her location of pain in my shoulders.

  • I was very pleased with the attention and detail that was given to me in my circumstances.

  • I was extremely satisfied with my most recent experience. I was contacted immediately upon my request. Staff were all very friendly, efficient and on the ball. Nicole Arnold was very nice, passionate, knowledgeable and helpful. I have never had such a great experience at a doctors office. I am always satisfied! Thank you for all of your hard work!

  • My visit with Nicole was fantastic- she was incredibly knowledgeable and easy to talk to. You can tell she truly cares about her patients, especially when I discussed my high insurance costs with her.

  • Actually do things to fix whatever i am dealing with. I am a new patient and thrilled to be your patient. Thank you

  • Nicole Arnold, NP, is the best. She listens, genuinely cares about people, and does what she can to help treat anything, large or small. She is a rare breed of wonderful practitioner.

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.
