I have to say, [Name] helped schedule my physical after I was very frustrated getting told it would be a year from now. My last exam was 3/17, scheduling got mixed up last year.

  • I was a part of southcoast for many years. This group is doing everything southcoast initiatives are working on and going beyond treating people with dignity and kindness. The only improvement southcoast can make and issue I personally have had on multiple occasions is being able to get an appointment with a provider in a timely manner. Wait times for appointments in many areas for care are much greater then they should be.

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.
