Family Medicine / Primary Care

About Sami Assad

Dr. Sami Assad earned his Bachelor of Arts with a concentration in Psychology from the University of Rhode Island in Kingston, Rhode Island. He then went on to obtain his Doctor of Allopathic Medicine from St. George’s University School of Medicine in St. Georges, Grenada in the West Indies. He completed his Family Medicine residency at the University of South Alabama in Mobile, Alabama.

His personal philosophy of care is that a little kindness goes a long way. He also tries to personify what he preaches and approaches health from an all-encompassing perspective where diet, exercise, sleep, stress, and mental care all contribute to a well-rounded picture of health. He himself is passionate about exercise and routinely participates in HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training), CrossFit, and weight training classes. His passion for exercise has also inspired his planning to hike all 40 peaks over 4,000 feet in New Hampshire.

His inspiration to become a doctor came from a personal loss at a very young age. He wanted to be in the know of what was happening and why things were occurring. Those experiences and the want to make sure no one felt in the dark about their healthcare propelled him into medicine. To him being a part of Southcoast Health means having the opportunity to provide care for the community he calls home.

When not at work he loves to take part in his exercise routines and dabbling and experimenting in the culinary arts.

Sami speaks Arabic and Russian

Provider Ratings

Why aren’t there any ratings?

We do not have a rating for this provider for one of the following reasons:

  1. Provider was newly added to our survey process and has not yet received the minimum number (30) of survey returns.  Check back soon for results!
  2. If this provider’s biography page does not specify practicing at Southcoast Physicians Group or a Southcoast hospital site (Charlton Memorial, St. Luke’s or Tobey Hospital), he/she is affiliated with Southcoast Health Network but not employed by Southcoast Physicians Group.  Our affiliates are not included in our survey process.
  3. If this provider’s biography page specifies practicing at Charlton Memorial, St. Luke’s or Tobey Hospital, without reference to an outpatient practice, he/she delivers care in the inpatient hospital setting only; inpatient surveys do not include questions about individual providers.

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.
