  • The triage of my phone call was repetitive and excessive. After getting a recording and having to leave my # I was called back by someone at the office who went through the entire Covid protocol after I explained that I had a enlarged sub-maxillary gland. She said the Dr would cal., instead I received another call this time from a nurse who went through the entire Covid protocol again. Only after this did I get a call from the Dr. who finally addressed the problem that I called about.

  • I gotta tell ya', this doctor is awesome but I do have a complaint-it was windy and cold out and the door was locked. They told me to be there 15 minutes before the appt and the door was locked. I had to go sit in my car and wait. very unprofessional.

They were thorough in their questions to me about my past health and any current concerns. The staff also were attentive to my needs for a couple referrals to specialists within the Southcoast system and made the appointments for me before I left the office.

  • Thought the front desk, nurses and doctors did a great job at providing quick information. I would suggest perhaps letting the patient know the general outline of the visit would be helpful.

Administrative staff and nursing are also very good at what they do. I take my health very seriously and I'm glad to know these guys do as well.

  • Dr. Charnecki was beyond amazing. We are military and new to the area, she made getting settled into a new office beyond easy. She was more then willing to help me get settled with an allergist in the area to continue monitoring of my food and medication allergies.

  • waiting on old for the tele[hone so ;long is unacceptable

  • Dr. Sara Charnecki is my new PCP and we have a first appt in person scheduled for Sept. 1!! I have been ill w a GI disturbance and she kindly agreed to “see” me. It was good to be able to speak of my health issues and be heard. She asked differential questions that helped to put my mind at ease about the course of the illness. I very much look forward to meeting Dr Charnecki in person.

  • Very friendly and courteous.

  • Dr. Charnecki was probably the best doctor I have ever interacted with. She listened, was empathetic, and really made me feel heard and valued as a patient. The visit didn't go as planned because it was even more productive and services that were needed but not initially planned on were offered and provided without hesitation, which took a lot of stress and anxiety away from me. Everyone was so pleasant and the facility itself was clean and welcoming as well. Very happy that I chose Southcoast Health and Dr. Charnecki and there's not a thing anyone could have done more to make my visit better.

  • Sara was so kind and easy to talk to. I feel like she is a wonderful Provider and listens.

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.
