  • Always looking out for my best interests from changing dosages of medication to encouragement with medical regiments.

  • NP Grindell listens and explains things to me. Since I see two providers not in Southcoast Health, I update her on what else is going on, like being treated by my dermatologist. I'm grateful to have such a dedicated professional. I have suggested to my friends with diabetes, that they should ask to be referred to an endocrinologist. That specialty helps treat the disease much better than a GP.

  • She was very interested in what I told her and look over my meds to see how she could improve on what I take.

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.
