Currently, studies investigate service quality and customer perceptions in private clinics. This study focused on examining the impact of service quality factors in private clinics and also explored determinants and consequences of service quality. A documentary research format has been used. This study showed that service quality is affected by customer perception and its impact on customer satisfaction and word of mouth. It also presented  that the service quality of private clinics is influenced by reliability, assurance, tangibles, empathy and responsiveness, as well as showed that customer satisfaction and word of mouth impact on customer perception. Good service quality and customer perception also has positive direct effects on both customer satisfaction and word of mouth.  The results showed that customer satisfaction creates positive word of mouth, after that, both customer satisfaction and positive word of mouth have direct positive effects on loyalty and good image on the private clinic. Thus, good service quality plays a vital role in creating customer satisfaction and positive word of mouth, as suggested by many authors.
