  • Dr McGovern is the best Dr I have hes always there to answer questions I have real quick and helps me stay healthy

  • Was seen in a timely manner and everything that was done was explained in a way I could understand

  • Everything was done professionally....people were very courteous....Couldn't ask for better service

  • Dr. McGovern is the absolute best physician. I've been with South Coast for many years and that practice. When he has left the practice and when he has returned both times and gone back to him each time. He is an absolute superior doctor in that practice and I'm sad to see that he is going to be a hospital administrator pulmonary care. That is there lost. But obviously South Coast gain. I will miss him. He... I can't say enough about what a fantastic physician he is.

  • The office staff has gone out of their way to accommodate my hectic schedule. They are pleasant, professional and courteous.

  • No improvements necessary, exemplary service. I consider myself very blessed and extremely fortunate to be under this provider's care.

  • The staff was very helpful and personable. The doctor was attentive and listened to me about things that were of concern to me. Would recommend him and his staff to anyone.

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.
