  • Everyone whether on the phones or in the office were very courteous and respectful. The doctor was very thorough and nice to speak with.

  • Great in every way!

  • DOCTOR WAS VERY GOOD ABOUT EXPLAINING EVERYTHING.

  • Yeah, the staff was great. And Dr. Pricolo was good and explaining things and I'm very happy to experience. Thank you.

  • There was an emergency that prevented Dr. Pricolo from seeing waiting patients. After an hour wait, staff member told us of the situation, apologized for the delay and informed us that we could reschedule or wait. She had no idea how long a delay could be. That honesty was appreciated. I heard special arrangements being made for another patient who had to leave, to get a phone call when his turn was approaching. Very accommodating. Since I several years ago had been one of Dr. Pricolo's emergency's, that undoubtedly caused others to wait, I had no problem with the delay.

  • Greeted at door for COVID Check. Waited until appointment time in lobby 300 B Faunce Corner. Had med tech check. Awaited MD briefly. Was explained fully the health condition and treatment plan inc. surgery. Set up with preop appts and left. All very convenient. Surgery date 12 days out too long.

  • His explanation of the procedure was excellent and I am confident of a good outcome.

  • Very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful staff and doctor. Positive experience.

  • Excellent care and attention to my needs

  • This was my 1st visit here. The doctor took his time with me. He was very thorough with his explanation. I would highly recommend this doctor to family and friends.

  • Every aspect of my visit was exceptional and professional.

  • The front office staff was very nice. I called the day before my appointment. They reminded me to wear a mask, but they did not mention that no loved ones could be in the appointment with you. So my husband drove in a separate car half an hour to come meet me at the appointment and he was not allowed in. That communication could have been improved if they had called me the day before and reminded me of that. Otherwise, everything was great. Thank you.

  • I know it's not your fault but I can't wait to get back to in person office visits again

  • I feel like Dr. Victor Pricolo is extremely intelligent to care for his patients. He takes time to explain procedures disease processes and heat is only satisfied wants his patients on the stand and he cares very much for his patients. He has excellent bed side manner and extremely professional and all of his staff and colleagues that I have had the pleasure of meeting even in the surgery center. I just super and I cannot say enough good about Dr. Victor Pricolo and his staff and his colleagues, (INAUDIBLE) which is a very challenging disease. He is someone far and in between that can actually help us patients to better understand the disease process and *

  • Outstanding customer service and the Southcoast staff and doctor went above and beyond.

  • I have now had the pleasure of consulting with Dr. Priccolo for the first time and in a virtual format...atypical, and yet he managed to convey his compassion and interest in taking a thorough history. At no time did I feel rushed and was asked thoughtful and thorough questions. After years in the [Name] system for colorectal issues, I feel I have now found a local doctor who inspires confidence in managing my health.

  • The staff that works for the Doctor...are great...these are tough times....and they all excel in their jobs...hats off to the staff...and of course to the Doctor!

  • This was a truly perfect Telephone office visit. Because of the covid 19 situation Dr Pricolo was most gracious to allow a telephone consultation. I explained my concerns and he was understanding as usual and extremely patient helping me to understand and alleviate my concerns. He is an extraordinary physician, so articulate and kind. I feel very fortunate to be under his care.

  • The staff was wonderful and Dr Pricolo listened to my concerns and we came up with a plan for my health

  • Prior to my appointment and during my appointment, the office staff was very competent, clear in their thinking, respectful and had a calming influence. Of course, Dr Pricolo is the ultimate gentleman, extremely respected and brilliant colorectal surgeon. His course of action for me was not to perform surgery, which I thought was my immediate destiny, but he offered me a very sensible plan with a clear explanation for my reoccurring problem.I am grateful for receiving an appointment with him in a timely manner.

  • The doctor's hands on experience was excellent. He listened to my symptoms precisely. He was very quick to say what it was and I would strongly recommend his services to anyone with the same type of problem I had. The doctor was very very cordial and very very bright and made a good referral for additional help for me in south coast. Thank you.

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.
