  • This was my first time with this provider. They were incredibly Helpful.

  • Dr. Deleo is responsive and very thorough. I really enjoy having her as my provider.

  • Dr DeLeo is awesome

  • Staff or very professional. Primary doctor went above and beyond to answer my questions and take good care of me. She took care of my short term issue and squeezed in my annual check up just before my move out of state, so I would not miss my well check this year.

  • Dr Deleo settled in commenced a genuine conversation with me.We discussed my medications and how I was doing. Brilliantly she changed my medications which helped me a great deal.

  • Received prompt response to request for an appointment. Provider gave very quick response to my questions and took action on medication needed. Conversation a bit rushed, so communication led to some confusion on information. In general, it seems doctors are very rushed, which I understand, but the result is that the patient often does not have time to get questions fully clarified or answered.

  • Prompt appointment

  • The nurse who took me to the exam room and doctor who took care of my medical needs were efficient, courteous,and listened. I found the front office as I left a little curt.

  • They did prompt service, excellent service, I was provided with two prescriptions the same day and given an appointment time early enough to get the prescriptions filled during the day, thank you so much.

  • Although I realize that new procedures are just being formulated to insure safety due to COVID-19, the check in was awful. I could have been told in advance the process. The staff seemed confused and unsure of procedures to welcome and process patients.

  • Front desk staff always courteous. Followed all safety precautions. Dr. Deleo is the best. I always feel like she is listening to me and I never feel rushed.

  • I had a phone conversation due to the Covid situation and Dr DeLeo handled by a medical problem professionally and quickly! I also need to go to the facility today for a urine sample and everyone there was professional and courteous and helpful.

  • My visit was by phone. Exactly on time and everything explained as to what I needed to do.

  • I think they did a great job it was a over the phone visit and it went well it went well

  • Friendly, conversational and informative. Provided a caring and open environment.

  • Dr. Julie DeLeo is very good

  • I requested to speak to Dr Deleo over the phone and not see her personally. I have great confidence in her and trust her. I am grateful I have her as my primary care physician.

  • I luv dr Deleo she was spot on with what I needed to take for bk pain I feel better already

  • Better phone communication!Too long before anyone gets back to you!!

  • Dr. Deleo is the best.

  • I like Dr. DeLeo's calm and confident demeanor.

  • Fantastic smooth and easy service

  • I have been very pleased with Dr. DeLeo.

  • Excellent communications and responses from all caregivers involved in my care. Thank you for such great care.

  • Everything went fine, no issues.

  • I have been going to Dr. Deleo for years. She is the greatest primary care physician. I can't even tell you how wonderful it is to have someone that I can trust who is knowledgeable. And whom I have recommended to my mother my sister-in-law and my friend.

  • Everyone was caring right from the start. Just knowing that i could rely on them to help with my pain was comforting in itself. A script was ready for me within fifteen minutes.Even though i still have pain i know i will get some relief from the script. With the corona virus i have to wait another week to see my dentist for a abscess. I truly thank southcoast for helping me get thu this.

  • I guess I needed more guidance on turning on the camera and microphone on my android phone. I ended up with just a phone call from the Dr instead. I have now learned how to do that if needed next time.

  • Dr De Leo is the best!

  • Dr Deleo is my PCP and I am so fortunate to have her. She is thorough and very caring for all my family. She is the best and I couldn’t be happier with the care I receive from her.

  • Everything went wonderfully!I especially appreciated that I was seen on time!

  • This was my first time with a phone visit, it went very well!??

  • I understood that I would just click on the link in the text the doctor would send To my android phone so we could have face to face appt. I did not understand having spoken to two people in the office that there were more steps. I wonder if it might be helpful for office "tech" to email or text directions to patients the day or two before the appt. so phone would be set. OR in the nurse interview if that person could read the steps. I know that is like giving teachers one more thing to do in the classroom but I can't be only one for whom it would be helpful. At least I hope I am not the only one. I apologize for not being able to do phone appt. properly,.

Otherwise, everything was excellent.

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.
