About Katelyn Oliveira

Dr. Oliveira attended Boston College before earning her medical degree at the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine in Biddeford, ME. Dr. Oliveira then attended Brown University, where she gained valuable experience through a Neurological residency and Neurophysiology fellowship at Rhode Island Hospital. She is board certified in Neurology.

With a strong passion for this field, Dr. Oliveira has clinical interests in General Neurology, Neurophysiology, Epilepsy, Neuromuscular disorders (nerve and muscle disorders), headaches, EEG, and EMG. Throughout her education, she was fascinated by the nervous system and the innumerable disease processes that can affect it. This fascination led her to become a physician as this allows her to be a lifelong learner while forming relationships with others.

Dr. Oliveira’s philosophy of care is centered on her commitment to life-long learning and using an evidence-based approach. She strives to constantly reevaluate her practice and provide her patients with the most up to date care while taking into account their specific needs. She wants to create a partnership with her patients that allows them to work together to create individualized care plans.

Living in Massachusetts for the majority of her life, Dr. Oliveira describes Southcoast Health as a comprehensive health network built around the community that it serves. In her free time, she can be found spending time with family, reading and completing DIY projects around her house.

  • Office staff very professional and prompt to assist.

  • Office staff was welcoming, polite, and professional; I was called into the exam room in a very timely manner (did not have to wait past my appointment time!); nurses were friendly and helpful; main office/waiting room was clean, orderly, w/good signage (re: covid: 6ft distance, clean pens, hand sanitizer, etc); exam room was hygienic; my neurologist/doctor was very friendly, listened, asked questions and provided relevant information; she was easy to talk to, I felt heard and not rushed; multiple people (office check-in staff, and my doctor) confirmed which Pharmacy I use and updated their records as necessary; I was provided a detailed (printed) After Visit Summary containing my new (and current) medications--which was very helpful. My only first complaint is just how long it took to get an appointment with her, and how long it will be before I could get the follow-up visit (I called in October 2021 and the earliest they could schedule my first appointment for was February 2022; follow up is in May 14th). I was told that I can call if I have questions or concerns and maybe get a quicker appointment through a cancellation if necessary. Still, compared to my previous provider, today's visit was so smooth and I am far more confident that I won't face nearly the amount of problems (with scheduling errors, and last-minute changes and/or confirmations, follow-ups that never materialized, and errors sending new scripts to out-dated pharmacies, etc.) that I am happy I made the change to see this (new) provider.

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.
