  • I have an excellent primary care doctor

  • Dr. Deleo is always well informed about my medical history, she's attentive to my concerns, offers helpful advice in addressing any medical concerns, helps to coordinate care with other doctors (or tests) as needed and is incredibly compassionate. I always feel heard, valued, and respected as a patient, no matter how large or small my concern. I would highly recommend Dr. Deleo as a primary care physician.

  • I have many doctors and have overr the years and Dr. Deleo is one of the best if not the best. However, if she is not in the office every doctor in this practice has been too notch and I have felt extremely comfortable when she has been out.

  • There is only small thing that could use improvement. The person I saw before the doctor came in spoke extremely fast and did not face me when speaking. With the COVID-19 procedures in place (mask wearing), it made it difficult to understand her. She was very polite and professional but needs to slow down when dealing with older patients. I had to keep asking her to repeat what she said.

  • Dr Deleo was very empathetic, caring and helpful. She listened to me and helped me with my health issue. She's an amazing doctor.

  • Hi there, the check in process is good. The temperature, check in and all that, the nurses is good. The computers not, you know, bad, but the checkout process, it's a little confusing. Nobody sitting at those check out desks and then there's a tiny, little space before you leave the door, which I thought, you have to stand and then you have to come around. It's just confusing as to where to go when you're checking out. That's all; everything else is good. Thank you.

  • All good

  • I feel that I have an excellent doctor. However, I feel that as a person with multiple medical conditions that I need someone who is more actively and proactively tracking my multiple tests and the staff getting back with me. I know that my DR is following my case but want to be sure that there is the appropriate follow up once results are in. As I have said, I feel fortunate to have a wonderful doctor.

  • Dr DeLeo has been my Doc for over 20 years. i trust her and rely on her experience and her judgement in my care needs. i try to do what she recommends as best as i can and i feel confident that i enjoy the best potential health level i can have. i feel that she is available if and when i need her. i am not aware of anything that needs to be improved.

[Name] who answers the phone there is friendly, takes the information and is just great. Always a pleasure to speak to. The problem I have is trying to get through when I have to wait 15 to 20 minutes to get someone to answer the phone. I understand the call volume is high as you say that many, many times, but it is a little frustrating. Thank you.

  • I think the we is too exaggerated. Dr Deleo is a excellent provider who is basically no nonsense but engaging concerning my health, options and most of all my conversations. Her assessing nurse was by far the best I have had since being seen by Dr Deleo

  • We called earlier in the week to get an appointment for bloodwork. Was told need a script and at my wellness visit I would get one and just have the bloodwork after my physical. I took it to the lab at the office, and even though no one was there, I was told I need to make an appointment. That means coming back. I left and most likely will skip the bloodwork. It shows the lack of work ethic. Lazy and doesn't care for patients. Dr. Deleou00A0and her staff was great and you end up with this lazy worker.

  • I was surprise that more items were not checked like eyes, throat and a urine test.

  • Dr DeLeo is great. I can't say the same about the nurse. I cringe everytime she is on duty. She is not very nice and is judgmental. When I told the Dr she wasn't my favorite she actually took the time to do it all herself to keep me at ease and my blood pressure down

  • I have been a patient of Dr Deleo for many years. She is a trusted and wonderful Physician. Highly recommended

  • Dr Deleo did everything well. She always says its her job to meet all my medical needs to keep me healthy and she does just that. Utilizing any specialist that is required. I am glad to have such a dedicated individual to handle my care

  • South Coast must allow for longer provider visits. Time spent with patients is the key to accurate diagnosis. Medicare should not be allowed so much say. My doctor always does the absolute best in this practice.

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.
