  • Timely appt. no wait when I arrived. Nurse was excellent!

  • 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.

  • Reaching the practice by phone is prompt and efficient in responding to request.Dr Deleo's staff are always receptive to request ... referrals to specialist etc..........also timely returns all calls...

  • Nothing to improve

  • My Dr cares

  • I was seen very promptly after checking in and all of the staff with whom I came in contact were friendly, thoughtful and treated me with respect. I can't say enough good things about my new PCP. She was so thorough - I never felt as though I were being rushed and she listened and answered all of my questions. She is the best.

  • All the providers and the workers that I'm at and interact with her professional and Dr. Deleo did a really great job. Asking me if I understood everything and she went into detail when I did have questions.

  • South coast is the best health place to go. Dr. Deleo is one of the kindness Doctor that you could ever have!

  • Very accommodating

  • I have total faith and trust in Dr. Deleo.

  • My doctor knew exactly what my blood work was, and told me and gave me every information about it. And she also knew what medications I take, which are basically vitamins and told me to continue them. And then she told me that she would like to check my heart just to make sure that everything was okay. So I had an electric cardiogram which came out completely normal and she came back in in a timely manner and told me that everything was perfect. So she gave me advice for the future or what to do to keep my health goals and told me that I was doing a terrific job and she would see me. I have my next physical. I was very pleased with the outcome. And, and, and the way I was treated.

  • Dr. Deleo is AMAZING!!!!

  • Always good experience with dr deleo

  • Dr. DeLeo is a wonderful physician. She is thorough, listens and very respectful to her patients. I would definitely recommend her.

  • Dr. Deleo is incredibly smart, intuitive and thorough. Im so grateful to have her as my provider. There are very few DR's in this area who are as gifted. Plus, she has a good bedside manner. Whatever she's getting paid...she needs a raise.

  • Everything was done well!

  • I was in extreme discomfort, getting an appointment for the next day on telehealth was very convenient and I was feeling better within a day of the visit. Thank you Southcoast Health!

  • Everyone is so nice and they listen to you.

  • I thought everything worked out very well. The nurse got me on time, they're running a little late, but on the overall, I was very pleased, thank you.

  • Very courteous, prompt and thorough

  • I just wanted to say that I was in the ICU at [Name] hospital. So, this was a follow up visit with my primary care. Physician, Dr. Deleo. I got the appointment immediately and Dr. Deleo was, very attentive, and answered all my questions and I already have follow up plan in place. So, it was an excellent visit with Dr. Deleo. Okay, thank you.

  • Dr. Deleo has always taken great care and is reason I stay.

  • I have been very pleased with my care at Linden Tree with Dr DeLeo and [Name] [Name] particularly as well as all the support staff I have encountered.

  • Very nice. Very helpful. Very knowledgeable

  • Prompt service and comforting response to my situation.

  • Times are different these days. I believe all the health care people are doing the best they know how. Thank God for all of them, I am grateful to have my Dr. Deleo for the last 22 years

  • Dr. Deleo spent un rushed time.

  • Dr. Deleo is kind and enabled me to complete my annual visit efficiently.

  • Dr. Deleo is a wonderful primary physician whom I have seen for many years. She has my complete trust and confidence. She reviews my chart before seeing me, notes any areas of concern, listens to my concerns, and provides thoughtful, well reasoned recommendations to address those concerns.

  • It seems Southcoast Health is struggling with accessing records they scanned in. They did not seem to have my information from my last visit even. I was ordered labs then told to go home and make an online appt. The process was difficult even with instructions. Person out front should make it right at that time. Used to be the best part of Southcoast. They scheduled all followup things…ensuring you were more likely to go. Positive is that the visit was timely and I did not wait long. Dr. Deleo is always friendly and attentive.

  • Not a thing. I feel very fortunate to have Dr Deleo as my primary. Her staff is supportive and very helpful on a timely basis.

  • Dr. DeLeo and the entire SouthCoast staff are very professional, knowledgeable and always friendly and courteous. They are excellent at what they do. [Name] [Name] especially helpful.

  • I still think that you have to get your scheduling a little better. I was waiting in the office at least a good 35 minutes before the doctor saw me. So, I think that there has to be a little bit of a scheduling compromise there.

  • During Covid using an answering service to get responses to questions slowed down response time by weeks. I hope they will be able to discontinue this, but I understand the special circumstances.

  • Dr. de leo is always great

  • Dr. DeLeo is the best!!!

  • As a new patient I was comfortable and assured I was in good hands. The visit was thorough and I never felt rushed. Thank you to Dr. DeLeo and the staff.

  • Staff that make you feel welcome.

  • I am always well treated and taken care of. My Dr cares about me and that's all I can ask for.

  • Renewing a prescription takes too long

  • I called for an urgent appointment with Dr Deleo, my primary care physician, for severe upper back pain. I received an appointment at 11:00 and an accurate diagnosis, medications, appropriate therapies and clear explanations by 12:00. By 2:00 I was already feeling 80% less pain. What else can patients ask for? Absolutely nothing! Bravo, Dr. DeLeo and Southcoast Health!!!!!!!

  • I was very pleased with the appointment, I was able to get. Also the doctors well informed about my health and listen to my concerns. Thank you.

  • I went in for an annual physical. I was surprised nothing was done to check my heart like my old doctor did in my previous location. Seems the doctor wanted to see my blood work before anything serious is done. I did get a Pap smear which was needed. I felt the exam was fairly superficial. I also needed a tetanus shot but the doctor forgot to tell anyone. I was left in the exam room for a while before I got help. The staff was very helpful in getting me the shot.

  • My visit was an emergency, I thought I might have a blood clot in my leg, after calling the office I was seen immediately and sent to the local hospital for a test to confirm the condition. I was immediately called at home after the results and prescriptions were prescribed for the clots. Everyone absolutely did their best to help me.

  • prompt friendly care

  • Very organized, extremely thorough. Dr. DeLeo was excellent.

  • Everyone in office always answers my questions and gives the Dr my messages & they get back to me if I need an appt. I love Dr Deleo, I feel she listens to me & always try's to help & let me know what's going on.

  • I'm always are treated with respect

  • I was heard! I felt they understood what was going on with me and happy they set apt and made me feel I was taken care of

  • Wait time (after checkin) is way too long - 40 minutes. This happens more often than it should. Discouraged and disheartened - looking for another PCP.

  • This was my first visit with this provider. However, she made me feel very comfortable with the concerns I presented. My provider took the time to get to know me.I was happy that I didn't feel rushed off the call, and she was knowledgeable about the concerns I brought to her.

  • Everything went smoothly; a small suggestion would be clearer directions when done with appointment, where you go in the office before you leave....to make lab appointments etc... especially, with Covid restrictions. Very minor.

  • Dr. DeLeo is the best!

  • No improvements needed, thank you for providing such good care.

  • Prompt response and solution to request for assistance with pain.

  • I feel that dr deleo listens to me and considers my input. She is open to the input of other medical professionals. My care has been a team effort.

  • everything went well but the nurse could have been more warm and friendly

  • Dr Deleo is n a league of her own! Best PCP I have ever had! Gifted physician in all areas!!!

  • Filled out forms on portal and they were not available to check in staff so I had to do forms again and don't know where the forms filled out are. There is valuable information for my provider as the sets of forms were different from the ones filled out in the office.

  • The front office was very polite and efficient, the nurses were awesome, The Dr. was totally useless. Knew nothing about the report on me an basically wasted my time and money and told me the specialist will need to do everything! Which I already have an appt. with. Complete waste of my time and money and I have no ins.

  • I felt like I was rushed through my appointment (for an annual physical); the doctor did not answer my questions or heed my concerns, she just seemed to be too busy; the medical assistant rushed through her list of things to tell me, as if I wasn't a patient at all, rather like I was a chart in her computer (so much so that I had a hard time understanding her, she was talking and walking so fast); I felt like all they wanted was to get me vaccinated, which I was going to do anyway. I am disappointed. I understand it's a tough time in the medical world now, but doctors and medical assistants need to listen to patients, especially those they have not seen in 5 years like me.

  • Covid conscious by all staff. I felt very safe. Kind and caring staff. Excellent care.

  • It felt rushed for a comprehensive physical.

  • Seemed understaffed in that I waited at check-out window and person at intake window (with no patient in front of her) inches away never looked to see I was waiting until another staff person walked towards me. Then she said "oh, I didn't notice you". No one asked me if I had been vaccinated yet for Covid but I did ask the staff person at checkout if they would make a copy of my "card" and enter it in my medical file - which they did. Southcoast Health should try to get that info on all their patients. No one asked me for this information during my entire time in the office and I am over 70.

  • I am always listened to.

  • Dr Deleo is always professional and relatable. Always a positive experience.

  • I felt that my provider did not spend much time talking or examining me... it had been 2 years since I had a physical due to the pandemic. She appeared disinterested in discussing my overall health. She tends to over order lab tests.

  • I was very impressed with how they followed covid precautions. They screened me.I was the only one in the waiting room. Provider wore maskAnd faceShieldOffice person helpedMeSchedule future appointment as well as specialist appointments

  • Doctor Deleo is awesome. Attentive, shows genuine concern and interest in my wellbeing. Staff is professional and you never feel like you are bothering them.

  • Dr. Deleo and that facility are excellent. They do everything an above what you expect. Dr. Deleo always remembers everything from previous visits, checks chart, goes through everything thoroughly and books any appointments for any follow up that's needed. Can't say enough.

  • Everyone is caring and listens to what concerns I have

  • Dr. DeLeo is always attentive and cares.

  • My doctor and also the other people in the office are all very nice and helpful.

  • Dr. Deleo is just wonderful always helpful, prompt, answered all my questions and is very helpful. I wouldn't go to another doctor. Thank you.

  • Visit needed to take more time!!! Wasn't weighed correctly and height!!!

  • Took the time to listen

  • From the minute I walked in everyone was so polite and treated me with respect and answered any questions I had.

  • Whenever I need an appointment, Southcoast makes me feel like I'm a priority and I receive an appointment the same day. Once at the appointment, the doctors, nurses and staff take the time to understand my problems and concerns and help me with a plan to achieve my goals - either feeling better and/or getting healthier. They explain the course of action and verify I understand and feel comfortable with the next steps.

  • My visit to South Coast health have always been positive experiences.

  • Appreciate getting an appointment on short notice

  • Great!

  • Dr. Deleo is the best doctor and I am thankful for her!

  • Very accommodating, always friendly and helpful

  • This was the first time using tell health and I think Dr. Deleo did a fabulous job keeping, eye contact keeping the appointment involved and also being able to look at all the data and keeping the appointment moving in a in a good fashion and keeping us on task with the discussion. So it was extremely helpful. It was personal and we couldn't asked for a better visit him. We're very appreciative to have been able to use tell health. So thank you very very much. It made it much much easier. Thank you.

  • This doctor is extremely pushy. Did not respect my choices in my health care options.

  • Did not have o wait for an appointment, very convenient

  • Dr. Deleo is the absolute best. She was available right away and is always courteous and explains everything. Thank you!

  • Fine, been a patient since she started

  • Dr deLeo is absolutely wonderful.... words cannot express my gratitude to her and her staff! They worked as a team to fit me in for an unexpected personal, medical concern. Such an amazing crew.....knowledgeable, professional, kind and understanding! It means so much to the patient who enters that facility. Thank You, Dr DeLeo, Thank You girls.... for being there for me!

  • I have been seeing my doctor for over 25 years and wouldn't recommend anyone else. She is the best out there and always makes sure I understand what is going on with my health. No one does it better.

  • Office was very well organized with Covid safety measures.It is always a pleasure to be treated as a patient of Dr. Julie Deleo. She is kind and competent and truly interested in your well being.

  • Medical assistant was great. It was important to me to have my PCP informed of my latest medical update. I was surprised to learn that my doctor either a) wasn't aware of letters sent by the genetic counselor and the oncologist or b) had not read them or c) read them and forgot about them.

  • The staff was very nice and helpful, and Dr. Julia was very nice and informative. I was very comfortable talking to everyone over the phone for my appointment.

  • Perhaps it was because of the pandemic but it is the first time I didn't wait to be seen, an unexpected benefit. I always feel well cared for here.

  • When in facility meet is not possible, I would prefer Zoom (face to face) instead of a telephone meeting.

  • I like the text remindersThe office was very prepared for the Covid situation. Everyone was friendly.

  • Dr. Deleo listens and cares tremendously about my health, amazing primary physician!

  • It was my first experience and I LOVED that I could go into the office and sit like an adult that I am and not wait in the car. The people were amazingly kind and thorough.

  • The office was very efficient now that Covid protocol were in effect.

  • Everything

  • Glad I am back, been away(avoiding) my health for over 3 years and I know coming back here was the right decision. Dr. DeLeo got me on track before and I know she will do all she can to guide me thru Diabetes and High Blood pressure again.

  • I have the best doctor!

  • Love Dr. Deleo!!! She is a wonderful doctor.

  • [Name] the nurse was very helpful and kind. Dr Deleo is always professional and caring.

  • My doctor is great, but I would prefer if routine bloodwork was prescribed in advance of the appointment like many practices do - it seems like it would better inform a routine physical evaluation.

  • Don't think my experience could be improved, very satisfied,

  • Dr DeLeo is an outstanding doctor who seems to care about me as a patient and care about me as a person. I will never leave her care, you should hire 20 more docs like her, people on this island would live healthier lives. I'm in a field of nutrition and appreciate her approach to healthy living.u00A0

  • "A" for taking my appointment albeit via a televisit.While I know it's been a bad year for our healthcare professionals, there's no excuse to not be encouraging at the end of the 30 minutes by saying:"I'm glad you've been well. We'll contact you about your tests and one of the nurses will call you with the results. Please stay safe."

  • All went well per usual, my Doctor, Dr. Deleo , the Best!!!!!! walks u through everything, listens, and Always puts me on the right track! Her office staff who sets up calls are terrific, Dr Deleo not only being one of the Best Doctors there are has a very competent staff with her. It is so reassuring to know !! [Name] [Name]

  • I was so pleased and comforted by the immediate response I received today after testing positive for COVID. Today, I received calls from nurses and my primary care physician in a timely manner! Never waited. I have hypertension and persistent cough ...shortness of breath. Dr. DeLeo called me ...listened because she knows my history and ordered an inhaler. Schedule me for an X-ray to rule out pneumonia. I am feeling grateful and happy I chose Dr. DeLeo. My husband wants to switch!!

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.
