  • Appointment was on time with very little wait time when in the exam room. Excellent acknowledgment that my time is important too.

  • Dr. Charnecki is fabulous.She tells you what she knows and asks about what she doesn't. Unlike most, she listens very well and then acts. Some things are uncomfortable to talk about, but she creates a great space for dialog which makes you very comfortable.

  • I had been with Dr. [Name] for 25 yrs. Dr. Charnecki really tried to pick up the thread where he left off. She did a great job confirming I was comfortable with the health care plan going forward, allowing me to be a patient who is also an RN.

  • This was my first time in this facility and my first visit with Dr. Charnecki which went really well. Where you might want to improve a patient's experience is where we check-in. I felt that she wasn't really personable and just matter-of-fact or machine-like in her routine. It wasn't really a good first impression at check-in.

  • Very friendly great listener, very knowledgeable.

  • Due to school policy, with a couple of symptoms, the kids needed to be tested for COVID 19. We were able to walk in, get them checked and a test was done on the spot. I thank this provider for the speed and service. How to get the results was explained to us. Of course there is extra paperwork that is needed to be signed for minor children. But we were able to get the results by the next day.

  • Dr Charnecki was thoughtful, caring, and interested in me and my health. Southcoast is fortunate to have her! She took time to talk to me, and really listened to me. I highly recommend her, and this office. Staff wonderful too.

  • I absolutely love coming here! Everyone here is so nice and caring, they listen to my needs and wants without hesitation. I always feel welcomed here.

  • The people in the office were great! The Dr. was great too! She was very thorough and explained everything. This was my first time meeting my new Dr. and I think she is pretty awesome! Love Southcoast too

  • Everything went well, good experience

  • First time seeing this provider n was very happy with care n staff!!

  • Great experience. Both physician and staff were courteous, personable and caring.

  • I was impressed by the efficiency and professional way I was dealt with. Dr Charnecki was fabulous. I changed PCP because my long term doctor was retiring. What impressed me the most was the doctor discussed a procedure a I had when I was five as well as current medical problems I have had in the past year. She listened and was very hood at making suggestions for improved health going forward. She made me comfortable and taken care of and this was a necessary change that had caused me a great deal of anxiety. I had an A1c done immediately and register blood work before I left I also have s follow up appointment for 6 months. I think someone should give this doctor a gold star and I have already recommended her to friends and family.

  • Dr.Charnecki was awesome. She listened to my all my health concerns and helped me to resolve them. She was on time and didn't make me feel rushed. Great doctor!

  • Dr. Charnecki provided a thorough annual exam. She is a caring, thoughtful physician who works with you to address all health concerns and strategy. The staff is attentive, friendly, and committed to patient care and the details of healthcare management. I highly recommend this practice.

  • everything went well and very satisfied

  • This was my first visit with Southcoast. Everyone was very friendly and welcoming. I was seen promptly. I loved Sara and look forward to her overseeing my care.

  • always satisfied with tiverton health.

  • All staff plus the doctor we're extremely helpful. As they always are.

  • The experience at South Coast Antilin is always very pleasant. And it's very easy to maneuver, and very easy to go there, and I'm very happy with the service. So, thank you.

  • Everything was great. The staff was friendly and allowed comfort. Doctor Sara C was amazing with taking the time to talk through everything from my history to lab work and plans going forward.

  • Dr Charnecki is wonderful. Listens to everything you have to say. The receptionist at the desk could use a class on customer care!

  • Only complaint was I came 25 mins early was called into rm then waited over a half hour didn't know if anyone knew I was there my head hurt so bad from sinuses that I wanted to leave was able to stick it out but I had no assurance anyone was coming

  • nothing. My doctor was terrific. She is listened, and spent a sufficient amount of time getting to know me. It was my first appointment, and I felt so welcomed by everyone. I have had less than positive experiences with my past provider, so I felt like I gained a friend and a doctor.

  • I feel that each person I met along the way was full of energy. Each employee and staff member listened and was a human-being. Thanks for not being a robot. I would say that whatever you're all doing is fine and works well with me

  • The front office staff [Name] & [Name] provide OUTSTANDING administrative services. Dr. Sara Charnecki is professional and personable. She is always willing to listen and we both develop a managed care plan that is reasonable, proactive and attainable. Being an older patient, when I schedule my annual exam, there are usually multiple health/medical issues to discuss with Dr. Charnecki. Southcoast Health seems to be overconcerned with volume throughput (Productivity) and does not always allow the provider ample time to complete the entire appointment. This policy/process is sometimes counterproductive to quality healthcare management and should be re-assessed to allow for a better patient experience with measurable and successful patient outcomes. The healthcare assessment process should not be rushed.Overall my experience with this office has always been positive. Again, OUTSTANDING healthcare provided by my provider and the front office staff.

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.
