About Fatima Medeiros

Fatima Medeiros earned her Associates of Science degree in Nursing from Bristol Community College in Fall River, MA. She went on to further her expertise in the medical field by earning a Master of Science & Nursing degree and graduating magna cum laude from Walden University in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Her clinical interests include primary care for all age groups. She is fluent in English and Portuguese.

Fatima’s personal philosophy of care involves compassion, respect, and empathy for every patient in her care. She believes that communication and education is the key to effective healthcare, and strives to keep a holistic approach to health – caring for a patient’s physical, emotional, social, spiritual, and mental well-being. As a little girl, Fatima served as her mother’s translator for her doctor’s appointments. Her inspiration to work as a Nurse Practitioner came from her experiences with the medical team that cared for her mother. Even from a young age, Fatima has felt driven to make a difference in people’s lives.

Outside of work, Fatima enjoys reading, walking, and spending time with her family and friends. She also spends time volunteering at her local church as a Sunday school teacher, camp volunteer, and bible group member.

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.
