Patient Comments (5)

  • Dr. Dana wasn’t even listening to what I had said to him. I had to repeat myself twice. I just did not like the care that that was given to me.

  • He was polite he asked questions he made the boys comfortable and he was explaining what he wa doing my boys have autism and he was very patient

  • He was over an hour late for the appt. We were told he was running a little late. Over an hour is not a little late. If he had an emergency or whatever it would have been nice to know a more approximate time we would have to wait. We were going to wait regardless.

  • Love the front office staff always professional and kind. The provider is always knowledgeable and well respected.

  • The medical assistant was very friendly and pleasant to my 7 year old son. She was very attentive when he spoke about random things. I especially liked that she bent down at his eye level when they both were having a conversation. She returned to give him his flu shot and not one tear was shed.

  • The staff is quick, smart and super friendly. The wait is never long and they are a great bunch of gals! And guy..

  • We saw Dr Lawrence Dehner for askin rash under my 16 year old daughters armpit. We were seen within 1 hour of calling. Dr Dehner listened to every question and concern. He appeared confident and well knowledgeable informing us of the type of rash he was looking at. I left that office feeling confident in the provider, care, and treatment that my daughter received.

  • I always have a good experience at this office with both of my children. The front desk is always pleasant. The nurses/medical assistants are so good with the kids. We are always in and out but not rushed and all questions are answered. I’ve seen a lot of the providers and have liked the all.

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.
