About Jennifer Porter

Jennifer Porter began her healthcare career in 2006. She started as a registered nurse in the emergency department, where she worked at Morton Hospital and Tobey Hospital for nine years. In 2015, she went to work at St. Luke’s Hospital in the Surgery Department as a registered nurse. Jennifer has also worked as a substitute school nurse and as a certified mobile research nurse. With a life-long personal and emotional connection to the world of medicine, Jennifer returned to school to become a Family Nurse Practitioner to be able to provide care for her fellow neighbors and community members.

Jennifer earned her Bachelor of Science in Nursing at the University of Dartmouth in Dartmouth, MA, and a MBA with a Concentration in Healthcare Management from Providence College in Providence, RI. She then earned her Master of Science Degree in Nursing, Family Nurse Practitioner, at Regis College in Weston, MA. Her clinical interests include Family Practice and Adult Internal Medicine.

Jennifer believes in building a partnership with her patients and strives to develop an open and trusting relationship. She encourages her patients to ask questions so they can understand their conditions, medications, and test results.

Outside of work, Jennifer enjoys spending time with her family and traveling as much as possible. She also likes to run with her dog, ski, hike, garden, and has a passion for photography.

Provider Ratings

Why aren’t there any ratings?

We do not have a rating for this provider for one of the following reasons:

  1. Provider was newly added to our survey process and has not yet received the minimum number (30) of survey returns.  Check back soon for results!
  2. If this provider’s biography page does not specify practicing at Southcoast Physicians Group or a Southcoast hospital site (Charlton Memorial, St. Luke’s or Tobey Hospital), he/she is affiliated with Southcoast Health Network but not employed by Southcoast Physicians Group.  Our affiliates are not included in our survey process.
  3. If this provider’s biography page specifies practicing at Charlton Memorial, St. Luke’s or Tobey Hospital, without reference to an outpatient practice, he/she delivers care in the inpatient hospital setting only; inpatient surveys do not include questions about individual providers.

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.
