This never used to happen. Once I get to the office the appointment goes smoothly.

  • Ana Pereira is the best provider. I have seen in a very long time. I just, I wish I could write her higher than a 10. She sees myself, my kids, my husband and she's phenomenal. She listened. She takes the time, you know, to try to figure things out. Anyway, that she can help, she's only available to us, maybe which probably shouldn't be, but it's just kind of says, however characters is. So I don't have enough nice things to say about her. She's just just wonderful above and beyond and just has done so much for myself and my family and I'm super grateful to her and she's just an outstanding provider and I wish there was more like her.

  • This provider was not very personable. She did not help me in any way to keep my condition or explain what I should do with my strep throat, which I told her I had and she disagreed with, but yet I had it I was... Not expected to see such a store bedside manner from a nurse practitioner and I was pretty disappointed in my care. My doctor, Dr. [Name] is much better at providing the bed side manner. This woman was very disappointing. I had no idea what I was supposed to do and she was supposed to reiterate what you do when you have strep throat, gargle, salt water, that kind of stuff, and she didn't even speak enough. So, I was dissatisfied with my experience with her.

  • I was pleasantly greeted by the medical receptionist as well as the medical assistant taking my vitals. The NP Ana Raquel Pereira is kind, efficient, a good listener, and explains things very clearly. I was very pleased to be in and out of the Swansea facility in a timely manner.

  • This visit was the first time I had seen this provider. She did not know my medical history. Ana was great. She did inform me that my upcoming yearly appointment was rescheduled to March. I was clearly blind sided because I did not receive any correspondence regarding this change. I am not able with my work schedule to change appointments on a dime.

  • It was our first time with dr Anna pereira and we just knew she was the new dr we wanted her knowledge and heartfelt care she provide my elderly dad was by far the best he had had .. she looked over his chart relived he has a lot going on that hasn't been addressed and reassessed and ran all new bloodwork order an echocardiogram and hopefully now my dad will start feeling better … the care we felt from her is amazing I will refer people to her for sure as a matter of fact my daughter will be call Calling in soon .. I also did a phone call appointment with dr pereira to go over some care and she is so patient kind and caring I feel so confident that she will have my dad feeling so much better … she is amazing and I will certainly be telling everyone to go see her if you want someone who really care about your health Ty again for helping me with my dad sincerely u00A0[Name]

  • It's very simple, You chose the right person for this job. Ana, is far more knowledgeable and on target with her assumptions. When I say "On Target" I mean, she hits the bullseye. She was the only medical person in a four year span that was able to guide me to the correct specialist, as others assumed I was losing my mind. Check my history, I am never in there unless I am sick which is rare. Hold on to Ana, it would be a huge mistake to do otherwise. The end.

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.
