  • dr.pricolo was great

  • The staff when I entered and exited handled my needs very well - taking my information and providing future appointments and answering all of my questions. Dr. Victor Pricolo provided me an excellent exam and visit.

  • This doctor has no bed side manner. He did mostly all the talking. When I tried talking to him, he would cut me off. I tried explaining to him what other doctors had told me. He didn't want to hear it. Very disappointed. I will not go back again and will not refer anybody to him.

  • Very nice. Very thorough. Easy to talk to. Office staff was great and I left with all my appointments which was awesome.

  • Everything was done fine

  • Staff was terrific and Dr Pricolo was very knowledgeable about my issue and was easy to talk to.

  • Dr. Pricolo was great. Very professional, patient, and understanding. All staff was great and kind. Great first visit

  • Dr. Pricolo explained complicated results and what to expect going forward in a very concise and clear manner. And he did so with grace and humor is which was much appreciated. He was clearly very knowledgeable about all aspects of my case and explained next steps as well as what to expect further down the road. His office staff was pleasant and helpful as always and even helped schedule our appointment with the Oncologist. I could not feel more comfortable or pleased with Dr. Pricolos skill, knowledge and care.

  • 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.

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.
