  • Wait time was a little long!

  • I was not seen by the Dr. for almost 45 minutes after my appt. time. As it was my first visit with this Dr/ofc, I understood the initial 15 min with the assistant nurse - who was quite personable - and appreciated her thoroughness. However, when I booked it, I had been told I had the Dr's 1st appt of the day yet when I stepped out of the exam room to let someone know I needed to get to work I was told she was with another patient. She was apologetic when she arrived and I do feel good about her as my new Dr. It would have been nice if she had reviewed my records prior to my visit...but I know everyone is busy...Still, I am confident in her care and abilities.

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.
