  • EVERTHING WENT VERY SMOOTHLY

  • DR Vazquez and his staff are terrific. I had an episode of a-fib between scheduled appointments and they were very helpful in giving me guidelines to manage this. They returned my call promptly after discussing issue with Dr. V. It turned out to be a caused by a new medication.The location of the office, at the farthest end of the building on the 2nd floor is not accessible to people with cardiac conditions nor is the pulmonary office. Southcoast should explore adding an elevator near urgent care. It could added to the outside the building to improve accessibility. For someone without a disability, it may seem like a small detail but it's not. It's like shouting at someone with a hearing disability, or asking someone in a wheelchair to handle "only a few stairs". I expect more consideration of these kinds of things from a medical facility.

I had a loss of blood and he helped me to understand. How that all worked and what I needed to do and how much longer I could expect it to take before my numbers were back up where they belong.

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.
