  • The staff and the doctor treated me with respect, and listened to my concerns. The prior day, I had a high-dose flu shot, and that evening, I began to feel ill. The following morning, I called my doctor's office, and they reached out to me shortly thereafter, then my doctor called me back and explained to me what I should do to feel better. He stated that many of his patients had the same reaction to the high-dose flu shot, and that I should feel better by the next morning. If not, to call him in the morning. He was right, by the next morning, I was feeling better (not great) but I could feel the difference. I appreciate the concern my doctor and his staff show me whenever I have medical concerns. Thank you to all the 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.
