I Just love Dr. Dawn de Neef, she doesn't "sugar coat" anything. She tells it like it is, in lay mans terms where patients are not left wondering what she meant..... ! She is so easy to talk and leaves plenty of time for any questions and/or discussions that the patient might have. "Hats off to Dr. de neef" Gods blessings to her.

I most recently was seen by Dr. Dawn Deneef. Checking in process was good I like the computer tablet less more paperwork to sign in. Also something new to me in the waiting area they have on their t.v montior of sinus procedure that I had a question about. It's good infromation. My experience with the practice was excellent from the start. Also I like the Saturday hours.

I believe each of us is a sign pointing to something. Dr. Dawn’s is “the breaking forth of new light.” The instant I met her, I could see our Lord in her countenance as she radiated with warmth and compassion. I noticed how through loving eye contact she included her assistant in our conversation revealing her to be a person who honored and valued others. Those who worked with her (Jennifer, Tera and Lynne) were kind and professional as well. I highly recommend Dr. Dawn.

I cannot express what a wonderful Doctor and person Dr. DeNeef is, she not only cared for me,but was so concerned for for a family member that was going thru a health crisis. She listened and showed some much compassion, she was truly a blessing. She handled my health issues with great car, she is what a Physician should be. Others Doctors could learn so much from her. Thank you Dr. DeNeef

Dr. de Neef is a wonderful and caring doctor. My son who is 7 and is on the ASD spectrum always has a hard time with doctor's and allowing them to do and exam. Dr de Neef talked with my son and got down on his level and engaged in what he was doing when she came in and talked with him about some of his favorite things.. She explained everything she was doing in detail to him and made him feel at ease.Thank you Dr. de Neef for being one in a million who "gets" ASD and all its quirks.

My experience with Dr. de Neef was exceptionally positive. I can honestly say that she is THE BEST doctor I've seen in a long, long time. In my judgement she is genuinely dedicated to her profession with expertise and experience in her specialty. Her caring, concern and respect for me as her patient impressed me. I most certainly appreciated the fact that she listened to me patiently while I offered my input concerning my health issue. I highly recommend Dr. de Neef.

Dr. de Neef is a great doctor. She was very patient with our son before, during, and after surgery. She explained everything to us and told us what to expect. She is a very personable doctor. She is the same today as she was 10 years ago when she did my stepdaughter's and husband's surgeries. Would definitely choose her again in the future and will recommend her to others.

While my wait time was longer that I had expected, it was more than worth it. Dr. Dawn de Neef, who asked me to call her Dawn, was so cordial and relaxed in her manner, I did not realize that she was the ENT specialist until near to end of the exam. I was pleased in two ways. First, she did not go for broke, recommending the most dramatic, intrusive and expensive course of care immediately. Second, her recommended treatment was a topical antibiotic, Mupirocin, which has worked: Symptom free!

I had to look out of state to find a good ENT. I found Dr. de Neef in Hickory and made an appointment in November. She is outstanding! She is extremely well educated, and the best thing about her is that she LISTENS to what you say. I did have to wait a while for her to get to me, but that is because she takes whatever time is necessary to hear what you have to say and to make sure that you have gotten your questions answered. I don't mind waiting for someone who does that.

The first time I saw Dr de Neef, my ears were swollen and oozing fluid inside and out. I had seen another ear doctor for a year with no relief. She had my ears back to normal in 2 days. She is amazing and has a sweet personality. I always give her a hug. Love her !!!
