  • Perfect We also discussed long term care

  • Hi there. Thanks for taking my comment. My concern about this office, is there seems to be an issue with their scheduling calendar because the last two times that I've scheduled appointments with them, there is been some mistake or error in the doctors availability, or the day, or that I booked a day and then I get a warning that says it's this day, which is not the day that I booked it. So something is not in sync between the staff and the calendar, or the calendar management of the office. Otherwise, this place is exceptionally well run. Thank you so much.

  • Everyone was SO friendly. And the doctor spent an extended amount of time with me listening intently about my issues/concerns. It was my first time with this doctor and the location, and it was an excellent. I had a terrible experience previously with a different Southcoast doctor in Middletown, so it was refreshing to meet this team. Top notch!!

Couldn't make it happen. I know doctor's time is valuable, and do not in any way hold this against her. Just wish it were easier to go one on one briefly with her when needed . Still rate her a 10.

  • It was a very good first experience with my new PCP!

  • Dr. Charnecki was super thorough, explained things so clearly, and went, what seems to me, above and beyond - considered all the angles. She is fabulous. I felt she really wanted to get to the bottom of what was going on and leave no stone unturned. THANK YOU!

  • This was a new patient visit after many, many years of not having a regular doctor due to pretty severe anxiety following some negative experiences elsewhere.

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.
