  • She was very kind and treated me very well.

  • Nicole is great. She takes her time to listen and try to help.

  • This was my first OB visit and I wasn't made aware it was going to be just an interview. I found it unnecessary - it could have been a telehealth visit. I provided the same information I did when booking the visit. I suggest the front desk started letting new patients know what the first OB visit entails (no ultrasound or any exam). Otherwise, the provider I met with was very nice and it was a pleasant experience.

  • I've only seen her one time, she was amazing.

  • Nicole was beyond amazing. She made me feel comfortable like no one else ever has when is comes to annual physicals and Pap smears. She put my anxiety at ease and explained many options I had with a concern I had asked about. Her and dr [Name] are the best and I will recommend to everyone.

  • I was not called back to the room for over 20 minutes after my appt time, and this was only after I went up to ask how much longer. Provider took some time even once I was roomed to come in. I liked this providers personality and would see her again. I was a little dispointed she didn't seem to have reviewed my history before seeing me.

  • The office is well organized and everyone is courteous. Nicole was kind , compassionate, knowledgeable, and thorough.

  • She was nice respectful an knowledgeable

  • Nicole Mapes was very easy to talk to. She took her time and explained answers to my questions and concerns very thoroughly, allowing me to make an informed decision for my healthcare needs. I'm very happy with my experience today. Thank you!

  • Nicole was very sweet and caring. She listened attentively and made me feel comfortable. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

  • Made a first time pap smear comfortable. Answered all questions thoroughly and without judgment as well as very detailed. The wait time is the only thing I would've said could improve however, there are many factors that go into that so I cannot fully speak on that as it was my first experience.

  • Nicole carefully listened to me and really focused on not just my physical but mental well being and I really appreciated that- she supported me in a way that I didn't know I needed and it was our first time meeting! She is awesome

  • This was my 2nd visit to this facility and everyone from reception to the doctors are kind and courteous. Even when passing other providers in the hall they say hello! It is such a warm and friendly environment which makes the process of going to the doctor less anxiety producing!

  • I appreciated the understanding and welcoming environment.

  • They all have a good behavior and are very attentive, for all those who do not speak Spanish, they answer all our questions.

  • It's always a pleasure to go there. No one likes to go to the doctor but the warm caring and patient staff make it comfortable to be there while maintaining professionalism. I'm very glad that I am a patient there.

  • Nicole and the student NP were kind and listen to me they made me feel so comfortable.

  • Very pleasant, curious, understanding, listening, kind

  • Very kind and compassionate. She took the time to explain everything

  • She was very understanding, more understanding than any other OB I've seen. However the wait times can be long here. Also, it feels like an invasion of privacy to hear providers talking about patients in the hallway

  • The Nurse made me feel extremely comfortable

  • Very satisfied.

  • During my pregnancy, I have seen Jenny Anderson, Dr. Harinarayanan and Nicole Mapes. Every provider I've seen has been attentive, informative, and makes me feel comfortable. I'm grateful to have had the opportunity to meet several of the providers who may be in the room with me during my labor and delivery.

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.
