  • The staff and Dr. Schwartz are rated A+++++in my books. My comfort level for this Doctor and his staff is rated extremely high. He is very bright, knowledgeable and caring. He calls you personally for test results either that day or the next. We are so fortunate to have this Physician and staff, as our wellness team.

  • Total experience with all staff members were excellent, no improvement is needed.

  • All Good!

  • Keep working on less wait time. I understand that some patients require more time than others. Best way to overcome this is the patient's "typical time required" history (or monitoring it for a year or so) and allow enough time for them, as oppose to just allocating everyone the same time slot.

  • Dr. Schwartz has been my primary care provider for almost 50 years. I couldn't have gotten any better care anywhere. He is kind and compassionate, and the best in his field in the area and I'd easily put him up against any one in the New England area.

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: Helpfulness of Clerks & Receptionists, 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.
