At Southcoast Health, we strive to deliver exceptional patient care along with an exceptional patient experience. We appreciate all of your feedback and share your comments to recognize the wonderful care our teams provide to you as well as identify areas for improvement.

  • I called the office prior to my child upcoming appointment to see if we could have a Covid vaccine scheduled for that day. I was told by the person who answered the telephone that I could just walk over to the clinic and get it. That was not the case when I came to my child appointment. I had to make another appointment for him to get the vaccine. Please educate your staff on Covid vaccine clinic availability. Making sure people are able to get vaccinated when they are able is extremely important.

  • What a wonderful experience. Wonderful provider. Very detailed, very goal oriented with my child, and always tells me what kind of things that I need to strive for with my ... both children. Thank you.

  • My son feels comfortable seeing Dr. Dehner and I very much appreciate how he engages with us both.

  • Me, myself, and all four of my children have been patients at this actual doctor's office. I've never had any company problems. I've never had any issues, always been professional, very informative, and I'm very happy to give anybody the name, so they can also be seen by these providers here, because you guys are amazing.

  • I'm a homeschooling parent and feel I shouldn't be judged for that choice. Although I respect this provider and his knowledge of medical care, I don't feel he understands what my child needs when it comes to their education and do not need to be told that my child will eventually have to go back to school. My child is receiving a well rounded education. I am considering changing to a provider that does not judge a parents choice to homeschool their child.

  • I've always loved Dr. Dehner, and have no complaints.

  • Everyone is extremely courteous!!

  • The nurse that attended us during our visit was very nice and friendly and made us feel very comfortable during our visit. Dr Dehner was also very caring and considerate during our sick visit.

  • No follow up or lab results.. child is still ill with no further guidance.

  • Dr Dehneru00A0was very kind

  • The people who took care of us during this visit where careful, attentive, respectful.

  • Office is great but the Covid check in process needs to improve. When I call to check in shouldnt have to go thru menus and listen to 10mins of messages. There should be a direct check in number.

  • Quick service and pleasant staff

  • This was not her usual doctor. But I would not recommend him.

  • The doctor is very nice and listens what I say to him the stuff members very respectful and friendly I did feel very comfortable with everyone. we need more doctors like him Thanks

  • I love this practice.

  • They helped me understand my child's problems

  • I have been going to Dr.Dehner for the last 18and1/2 years and now I have 3 children and they all go there. Also I moved to Middleboro last September and no matter how long the drive may be I would never want to go anywhere else.

  • Great doctor, highly recommendable !!!

  • Everything was done very well

  • Easy, quick, and friendly

  • Staff are great

  • This office and this provider is terrific they are hands down the best provider that I would recommend for anyone that I know with a child. Dr. Dehner was also my pediatrician, so he knows what he's doing. He's been doing a really long time, and I really trust him and really liked him and so do my kids. Thanks. Have a great night.

  • We did Covid testing. Still waiting on results. Unhappy with the fact that I know of people who have been tested and have gotten results in less than an hour- we're now onto day 2 with no results.

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.
