  • Hello, Patricia Grindell was extremely helpful. We were talking about a specific medication and she looked it up and she said it's not covered by your insurance, but I can prescribe something different. It is covered. And I thought that was extremely nice of her to take the time to do that for me because it makes a big difference. So she's excellent, very personable, and I like her a lot. I've been seeing her for several years. Thank you.

  • Patricia and her staff are very attentive even when I don't have an appointment and I reach out via MyChart and in this day and age it's very much appreciated and not usually the norm in every office but they are amazing and get back to you very quickly.

  • I just want to say that I have been at my endocrinologist's office for years and they have always been amazing. I know most people like to leave negative feedback so I just want to leave some positive and thank them for all that they do for me. Thank you.

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.
