Suzanne E. Dvergsten, MD
I have been practicing pediatrics for over 20 years. I completed medical school and a pediatric residency at the University of Minnesota and spent the first 13 years of my clinical practice in the Minneapolis area. I then taught clinical pediatrics at the University of Pittsburgh before moving to North Carolina. I enjoy working with children of all ages. I have been trained in the Positive Parenting Program. My husband is a pediatric rheumatologist at Duke University Medical Center and we have two boys who keep us busy with all their activities.
Ratings and Reviews
The Patient Rating score is an average of all responses to care provider related questions on our nationally-recognized Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey. Learn more about our survey process. Responses are measured on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being the best score. Patients who see some types of providers receive a different version of the patient satisfaction survey. Those results are not available on DukeHealth.org.
