  • I love this practice.

  • They helped me understand my child's problems

  • 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.

  • I have great experience!!

  • My son has never had any fear of going to see Dr. Dehner. Dr. Dehner is always very pleasant and friendly. My son described him as very kind. Dr. Dehner always gives him his full attention. He takes the time to answer my questions and I never feel rushed when I am at an appointment.

  • Always on top of everything ... for every problem that (INAUDIBLE) had. Great Dr, definitely.

  • Everyone in the office was extremely nice and helpful....the office is very clean and friendly.

  • Everything is good but during this covid situation contact option can be improved.

  • I have been bringing my 3 chikdren here for over 20 years and Dr. Dehner , his associates and office staff have always treated us with respect and my children don't mind going to the doctor at all. And that is a feat

  • Dr. Dehner has been my families choice for a pediatrician since apx. 1980. I had Dr. Dehner as my pediatrician and wanted to have both my children be seen by him. He is always informative and still practices old school methods, that work effectively, without giving children medicine. I'm very happy to have him as my children's doctor and will be sad when he retires.

  • No issues. Appt. went well.

  • We love Dr. Dehner.

  • Even with Covid, everything was smooth, everyone was very pleasant and Dr. Dehner is always so informative and amazing. I always have a great experience with both of my children here!

  • Dr. Dehner is a fantastic pediatrician who has engaged with my son in an easy and informative way. I am very grateful that he’s our pediatrician.

  • I love my son's doctor he listen to my concern and gave me very helpful tips without making me feel like a fail mom and I loved how he treated my son asking him about this own body and treating my son like a preteen and not like a baby I highly recommend my son's pcp to anyone.Keep up the wonderful work

  • Friendly and professional doctors and staff. The nurse we had on Saturday was amazing. We have had her multiple times and she was so great with my kids. All the providers are great and we usually see [Name] who is wonderful.

  • Excellent service all the time

  • They have always been very pleasant and I always feel like I have the Dr full attention when at my visit. They do a wonderful job.

  • Our experience could have been improved by knowing that we needed to have this appointment in the head of time so that I could have scheduled it on my day off come, but also in order to be able to have enough time. We had to do a physical and a med check that have to be scheduled right away in order to have a medication refilled and had no notice, so they had to squeeze us in and I really felt like we were rushed I didn't get to get enough information from the provider and I know he has other patients to get in to see so I kind of felt like we were rush through didn't get the answers we were looking for and I'm not very comfortable with whole scenario. Thank you.

  • Wait time was quite lengthy. A half an hour after our scheduled appointment.

  • the provider did the best he could do given the circumstances. The Video appt is a learning experience for everyone.

  • Great communication about check-in related to coronavirus. ON TIME!!! Very respectful and informative.

  • I have been very grateful to all of the staff members for their kindness

  • With Covid the whole process is weird. There’s really not much you could do to improve but I went in with a newborn and it was just awkward. It actually made me more anxious the way appointments are being handled.It isn’t really something you could do better or worse it just is what it is

  • Dr. Dehner always a pleasure!

  • Thank you for everything!! The staff is amazing and our doctor is perfect. We appreciate our healthcare heroes!

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.
