  • Dr Ronald Schwartz have me a very good yearly wellness exam. He is very professional and answered all my questions.

  • I was seen very timely and Dr. Schwartz spent as much time as needed to answer my questions. I was required to make an appointment for lab work, which is extremely inconvenient. I do hope that going forward they are able to coordinate labs on a day when you are physically there instead of requiring that you make a separate appointment.

  • Person who called the day before my appointment to confirm my appointment did not let me know you need an appointment to have your blood work done now. My last appointment was in December 2019, when you could still just go down to the lab and get your blood work done as a walk-in. No appointment was needed. Over last 1 1/2 years with CoVid 19 many people have not gone into the clinic for their regular Physical or Wellness Check. Every person contacted about their office visit should be made aware that they need to make an appointment with the lab if they need lab work done.

Fortunately. I have no need for that. But I was really impressed to see that your facility cared enough to ask these people these questions their patients these questions because somebody might not be ready to speak about it yet, but knowing that you are actually asking and caring I think is very important.

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.
