  • I thought had my visit was was done wonderfully. I thought that the staff was very professional and very helpful and I would certainly, you know, recommend this to anyone else and, The doctor I saw, Dr. Rizk was terrific, I'm not quite sure if I pronounced her name, right. R I Z K. I believe she was wonderful. And I would, as I said, recommend anyone else to go there.

  • I cannot think how you could improve...Dr. Rizk is excellent and I am lucky to have her as my oncologist.

  • As a person who did not seek medical care for some years, I have really no standard to judge you with, but I always feel I am valued as a person and a patient and that I am listened to, and actually seen, by the several people who get me in and out of the experience.

  • On time app.

  • In the last year that I have been treated at Southcoast Cancer Center I find the services provided to be excellent!!

  • I arrived to my appointment a little late due to me going to the wrong building. When I arrived [Name]at the front desk made the comment "you know your appt was at 9, right?" I told her I went to the wrong building and she proceeded to give me an attitude and said "I will have to message the doctor to see if I should register you because everyone is coming in late today. Have a seat and fill out this paperwork while I wait for her to get back to me". Once the doctor messaged her back stating she should register me, she proceeded to verify my information across the waiting room instead of calling me up to the desk. She was very rude and unprofessional.

  • Dr risz listens, even when not a matter dealing with my past cancer scare. Very caring and helpful.

  • Doctor presented bad news very bluntly and uncaring. A very much different explanation of my medical situation was given today, than the explanation and forecast that I was given a week ago.the Doctor was talking in a monotone voice, and was reluctant to answer questions, or tell why she changed her prognosis. There had been no testing between our last two meetings. Just a change in what she had said from Wednesday to Wednesday.

  • The doctor was confident and sympathetic! Phlebotomy staff and admin staff were a pleasure!

  • I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Rizk. She listens, she's thorough, she follows through and she has kept me alive and essentially healthy even though my diagnosis is Stage 4 metastatic melanoma. Currently the CT scans are clear, but that's all thanks to Dr Rizk. I couldn't ask for a better oncologist.

  • Always a great experience with Dr Rizk and the infusion department.

  • Very good

  • Very good keep up good work

  • just real good

  • The entire staff was so nice from checking in to checking out! I thought Dr. Rizk was absolutely wonderful. Also I have never had a good experience having my blood drawn even she was excellent. I had a good visit with this office. I thank all of them

  • This was my first time coming and I was very pleased away. I was treated. Everything was very satisfactory. Thank you so much.

  • I wish it hadn't taken so long to get an appt. it was nearly 2 months.

  • I just love Dr Sophia Rizk?? She is very genuine & personable… She listens to my concerns & explains my test results in an easy to understand manner. I would highly recommend her to anyone going through cancer treatment & after care??

  • Arrived about ten minutes before my appointed time. After about 3 minutes waiting I was taken in for my labs, and less than five minutes later was taken in for my appointed meeting with the DR. After a completely un-rushed meeting with the DR. my appointment was completed. I left the building approximately fifteen minutes after my initial scheduled meeting time. What a great experience.... had two appointments and left the building in approximately 25 minutes! That is the way appointments are suppose to work!!

  • All good, I have no complaint

  • Everyone was great. Dr. Rizk is an asset to Southcoast Health.

  • Kind caring all the way. Thank you

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.
