  • This was a phone appointment so I did not have any contact with any staff other than my doctor. You need to add n/a to the first 2 questions for the phone appointments. When I went in 2 weeks ago for blood work everything went smoothly, I was in and out in 10 minutes ( love it).

  • He thoroughly explained my expected treatment and options in a way that way easy to understand.

  • Clear concise responses

  • Yes, the only thing is a family member couldn't come with me into the room and I really don't remember too many things. I need them with me. So. That's all I got to say. Bye.

  • The patient is my 94 year old, very hard of hearing mother. Because I was not allowed in with her for her appointment, your office arranged for me to leave my name & phone number so Dr Rizk could call me while the appointment proceeded. NO CALL. My mother heard virtually nothing that was said to her during the appointment. I get the whole precaution thing with covid & thought the phone call was a great idea. Very disappointing when the call didn't happen.

  • Dr. Rizk is very patient oriented. She goes above and beyond to provide the best patient care.

  • Extremely pleasant staff, very comfortable atmosphere

  • Buildings were very clean. The people very courteous and kind. And very professional I felt very comfortable there. And I would recommend it to anybody. So, thank you.

  • I always feel so well cared for when I have my appointments. Thank you one & all!! And Dr Sophia Rizk really takes the time to listen to my questions and involves me in the process of figuring out next steps. She's Awesome!!

  • Staff was pleasant and knowledgeable thanks!

  • Entire staff was warm and welcoming.Test results from CT scans were explained in detail. Further bone biopsy result will be completed by next visit. Establishing a plan of action will follow. I was happy the entire process.

  • Dr Rizk is the best

  • The lovely gentleman at the door apparently assumed that I was a regular as his question, instead of the usual list, was "anything different from yesterday?" He was delightful and don't want to get him in trouble but thought you should know.

  • Scheduling bloodwork in a timely manner.

  • The staff are friendly and caring and use a common sense approach.

  • FYI, It was not an in person visit.It was by telephone and it went well.Thanks [Name]

  • Dr. Rizk is Outstanding!

  • Liked how I was able to ask many questions I had written down, dr answered all of them. Then she made sure if I do run into an issue, to contact her immediately. Liked I could see and hear her. And vice versa.

  • I get the best care with every visit.

  • Staff was very cordial and highly competent. No concerns!

  • I am that patient who would rather not be there, and the doctor and assistants are sensitive to that, and I don't feel diminished or patronized for these feelings.

  • Attentive, not rushed, always ready to answer any Questions, & can call at any time for with questions.

  • Off hand i can't think of anything.

  • Staff was very helpful

  • I think the staff was excellent from the moment. The appointment was made till I saw the reception is for the person that took my blood pressure and took the list of my medication to the doctor's I would write them all at 8 plus plus it's a great facility. I'm feel so fortunate to be a patient there and I think they'll go they'll be involved with me. Hopefully for sometime if I need it because I think the top notch. Thank you.

  • Dr. Rizk and the nurses are excellent and very caring health professionals

  • The first call from the MA kept breaking up and she was hard to understand. The virtual appointment with the doctor was scheduled for 9am and she did not come on line until 9:20 am

  • I think my experience was very good. It was excellent. Thank you.

  • Excellent team

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.
