[Name] [Name] has been right there as well, with all my questions and concerns.

  • I love dr dehner. He is very attentive & caring.

  • Did you ask them all the questions about him? I've known him for many, many years, and I wouldn't change it for any other doctor, and he did very well. Thank you.

  • Staff is always friendly at the front desk, the nurse was awesome with my son, and Dr. Dehner always is so calm and makes me son feel so comfortable. We are very lucky to have him!

  • Courteous and friendly to calm an anxious new mother's nerves

  • Dr Dehner listened to my concerns about my daughter & did not hesitate to offer resolutions. He is very tentative and very caring.

  • I called today as my child has been sick for a couple days and they were able to fit me in for today and check him over. Also assured me if my son wasn’t able to get back to school tomorrow that I could return for another note for his return.

  • Don't need to improve

  • I am glad for the opportunity to provide feedback for this visit. My son is 11, soon to turn, 12. Dr. Dehner’s tone with him set him at ease, let him know of the changes that will come with puberty, and, most importantly, let him know that his development is entirely normal. As opposed to my experiences growing up, he left the doctor's office feeling better about himself than when he walked in. I’m profoundly thankful for that.

  • Everyone was amazing, from the nurses to Dr. Dehner to the other departments. You all have been there for my sister and I since infancy and we are so grateful for all the work these amazing healthcare professionals put in every day. I want to say a specifically thank Dr. Dehner for the years of care he gave my sister and I, we are grateful for your care and kindness.

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.
