About Deanna A. Buhay

Philosophy of care

Communication is key to my philosophy of care. I always want to make sure my patients understand their diagnosis, their options for treatment, and what the final treatment plan will be. I find this important so I know my patients are leaving my office with full understanding of their urologic issues.

Why I entered medicine

I loved science and math growing up. I had the opportunity to shadow physician assistants and I loved every aspect of medicine they participated in. I thoroughly enjoy helping people. I am very hands-on and being able to participate in surgery is a great outlet for me to do this.

Community involvement

I grew up in the Lehigh Valley and I am so pleased to be able to give back to the community. I participated in Habit for Humanity and other fundraising events while in physician assistant school. I found these to be very rewarding experiences.

Personal interests

I enjoy playing sports because I grew up with them. I also love to run. It's not only good for your health, but a great stress reliever. I love to spend time with family and friends and I always try to find time to read and listen to music.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
