Patient Comments (9)

  • Easy getting an appointment. All staff I encountered were friendly and helpful.

  • Excellent service

  • The doctor spent a great amount of time explaining the situation and methods of remedying and answered all our questions.Good experience.

  • leave as is

  • The gentleman who brings patients in from the waiting room to check vitals, etc. is EXTREMELY personable and professional. One of the women at check out seemed like she'd rather be elsewhere but don't many of us at times?

  • Everything was fine,thank you,[Name]

  • I have always been a South Coast patient and wouldn't consider any other, always treated me special. Thank you

  • Your staff was very courteous and helpful respectful and attended to my needs as well as help me with my aftercare instructions and referred me too other doctors that I would need to see for certain procedures such as surgeons or doctors for other needs who can attend to me for my aftercare so I had a great experience because you have wonderful doctors and nurses who I'm very good at attending to your needs as well as keeping me informed about everything that they were going to do to me and my diagnosis and what to do after my discharge so I would definitely recommend your hospital to my family and friends and I will definitely come back to your facility for my health needs

  • The staff and especially the Doctor were wonderful. The Doctor was very knowledgeable and explained simply but thoroughly. The building was cold and impersonable but the doctor more than made up for it.

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: Helpfulness of Clerks & Receptionists, 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.
