  • Nobody wants to go to the Doctors Office (well no sane person), However going to Dr D's office is as pleasant and professional experience as one could hope to have. [Name] professional, warm, polite was very efficient in getting me registered. My experience with nurse [Name] was equally, warm & efficient. [Name] they make you feel as if they care for you and you are not just a cog in a wheel or number in a bucket of numbers. Impressive was [Name] the 3yr resident. Professional, knowledgeable, warm but with the sense that the issues that ail you, matter, sincerely. [Name] demeanor & wherewithal reflects very well on Dr D. as those are his behaviors. Professional, warm, polite, sincere. One last observation, continue to be impressed with time spent talking & listening to my issues, never having the feeling of being hurried or rush. And yet even with testing for the flu was on my way in less than an hour. Q: How to improve my experience: Clone Dr D's business model throughout the medical industry. Five STAR!

He knew what he was talking about and everything was clear and he's not my normal physician, but I was very pleased. I would go back to him again if I needed to. And I would highly recommend ... I left there knowing what had happened to me and with some assistance.

  • Hello, my name is [Name] [Name]  Dr. Delguercio covered for Dr. [Name] It was the day before New Years Eve. It was New Year's Eve and he was extra ordinary just as she is so is the support stuff. I had been hospitalized almost two weeks earlier. This was a post discharge thing. I've had some complications and he took so much time with me and such care actually felt bad. He was spending so much time with me giving it being New Year's Eve. They were like many many patients in the waiting room with look like sick calls with mask waiting to see him so I felt bad and but he took his time and wouldn't leave until everything was done properly. So

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.
