  • Any office will have some kind of wait time so I hope my response does not negatively impact their score. Everyone I came into contact with at the office was pleasant and courteous, they were not rushed yet still effective with their time and mine.

  • Dr. Del Guercio listens carefully and discusses possible treatments clearly. He had a calming affect which is appreciated in a healthcare setting. This visit, he presented a 3rd year med student who je let direct the questions (with my approval), but certainly added thoughts where appropriate. I am certain Paul Del Guercio is an excellent mentor.

  • Beginning with the appointment request, which was not an emergency, I received a same-day time with politeness and eagerness from the receptionist. At the office, the nurse greeted me and escorted me to the exam room with compassion for my condition. When Dr. Del Guercio presented, he listened to my issues and thoughts, then with great thought he examined me with concern and care. After discussing my needs, he immediately had the labs (blood and X-Ray) work with me with no wait time. I write this because this facility works quite professionally with an understanding for the patient. Most other practices lack this compassion to the point of making people feel uncomfortable to even make a phone call, as if any encounter is a high privilege. All accolades go to Southcoast Health, Dr. Del Guercio, and its staff.

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.
