About Thomas Atwood

Thomas M. Atwood earned his medical degree from the University of Connecticut School of Medicine in 2017. He then completed his internship and family medicine residency at the Brown University Family Medicine Program in Pawtucket, RI. During his residency, he completed clinical work and research on diabetes management.

Dr. Atwood’s clinical interests include Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes, chronic disease management, and complex care coordination. He was motivated to become a doctor through the exceptional medical professionals who cared for him when he was diagnosed with diabetes at the age of twelve. In this way, his clinical work is inspired by his own personal experience.

Dr. Atwood’s personal philosophy of care is to walk with each of his patients on their unique journey through sickness and health. He chose to practice family medicine as it allows him to provide family-centered care for patients of all ages and from all walks of life.

Outside of work, Dr. Atwood enjoys playing board and card games, and spending time with his wife and children. He also actively volunteers in his local church community.

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.
