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.

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.
