Acute Care Surgery / Trauma

About Tony Xia

Dr. Tony Xia earned his Bachelor of Arts in Chemistry from New York University, in New York NY. He then went on to obtain his Doctor of Medicine from the Temple University School of Medicine in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  

He completed a Residency of General Surgery at St. Luke’s Hospital in Bethlehem Pennsylvania where he also went on to become Chief Resident. His fellowship in Surgical Critical Care was completed at the Boston University Medical Center in Boston, Massachusetts. 

Dr. Xia is both an administrative fellow and a clinical instructor at the Boston University School of Medicine and holds memberships in various professional societies such as but not limited to, the Eastern Association of Surgery Trauma and the Society of Critical Care Medicine. 

His personal philosophy is to take excellent care of anyone who walks in the door regardless of who they are and how they came. He believes that it requires a lot of education, informed conversation, and decision-making in order to take great care of a patient. 

He believes that when someone comes in injured, part of his job is to help the patient and their loved ones understand what is going on and what the treatment options are so that together they can come up with a plan to go forward with. His hope is that patients come in understanding that he and his team’s goal is to make the best outcome their priority. 

Dr. Xia became a trauma surgeon because he wanted to help the community in a tangible way; when a patient is injured, he can see and feel what the injury is and his training gives him the ability to fix it. He finds it immensely gratifying to see a patient come in after a traumatic injury and be a part of their getting back to life. 

To him, Southcoast Health is an organization that is dedicated to serving its unique community. 

When not at work he love to cook and spend time outdoors skiing, hiking, and biking.

Provider Ratings

Why aren’t there any ratings?

We do not have a rating for this provider for one of the following reasons:

  1. Provider was newly added to our survey process and has not yet received the minimum number (30) of survey returns.  Check back soon for results!
  2. If this provider’s biography page does not specify practicing at Southcoast Physicians Group or a Southcoast hospital site (Charlton Memorial, St. Luke’s or Tobey Hospital), he/she is affiliated with Southcoast Health Network but not employed by Southcoast Physicians Group.  Our affiliates are not included in our survey process.
  3. If this provider’s biography page specifies practicing at Charlton Memorial, St. Luke’s or Tobey Hospital, without reference to an outpatient practice, he/she delivers care in the inpatient hospital setting only; inpatient surveys do not include questions about individual providers.

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.
