Patient Comments (12)

At Southcoast Health, we strive to deliver exceptional patient care along with an exceptional patient experience. We appreciate all of your feedback and share your comments to recognize the wonderful care our teams provide to you as well as identify areas for improvement.

  • Everyone there was the best

  • I don't know what you can do better, keep up the great work all of the associates are doing. Thank you!

  • The radiologists were professional and are compassion and understanding when dealing with individuals going through treatment.There were several times when hospital gowns were not available due to vendor issues. It was very disconcerting and considering the size of Southcoast Hospital I believe something simple as a hospital gown should be provided for a cancer patient.

  • The entire staff was caring and compassionate throughout my entire treatment. This facility is such an asset to our area so patients are able to stay local for their treatment!

  • I was extremely pleased with my experience. Thank you.

  • Everyone was caring and compassionate. If I had questions they answered them. The only thing I would have done a little differently would be to let you know when they are running more than 30 mins behind.

  • All the team members were just great to me .I can't say it needs improve .

  • All staff were very compassionate regarding treatment that I needed. True professionals.

  • Everyone was very kind and used extreme care in treating me while I was also recovering from shoulder surgery. They could not have been nicer. Thank you to the entire staff.

  • Yeah, they just took care of me very well. Everything was excellent.

  • They did an excellent job. We are very grateful to all of you. God bless you all.

  • It's a very good, well run team effort.

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.
