  • They are always really good hear and they listen to me always and if I had a question they answer me

  • Hello, the doctor was great. I've used him for 5 or 6 years. This time, the only problem was the wait time was long because he was in surgery earlier in the day. I know it's not his fault, but that just gives me more anxiety waiting at the waiting room a longer period of time, but overall he's an excellent doctor.

  • Excellent, well informed, personable Doctor.

  • The Provider was very professional and knowledgeable and skilled. Due to the medical assistance trainee being a bit slow, the appointment started a few minutes late and the Dr. Was extremely apologetic for the delay ( which I did not mind the delay ) but I could tell the Dr. prefers to work more efficiently and was sorry for the later start of the appointment. I also was very impressed with the two young men who worked in the front office. Very friendly. One of them actually stepped in and replaced the medical assistance trainee to move computer part of updating meds along so appointment can get started for the Dr. Very clean and quiet waiting room and set up for precautions for COVID. Great experience. Thank You.

  • Well, she should have looked at my records before I got there because apparently he didn't know why I was there. I neither did I or who recommended which specialist recommended me. So, it was a wasted trip for me. And I will lot of doctors appointments, so it was very frustrating because he didn't know I was there. Why I was there.

  • I needed surgery for a cancerous polyp. I was able to meet and see the doctor within a week, and schedule surgery for 5 days later. The doctor eased my fears, and knowing that the surgery was taking place so quickly also eased my worries.

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.
