About Kayla Fraser

Kayla Fraser is a Physician Assistant in the Trauma Surgery Department at St. Luke’s Hospital. After finishing her medical education at Bryant University and becoming board-certified, Kayla went on to complete 12 clinical rotations following her interest in trauma and critical care medicine. Throughout these rotations, Kayla gained valuable experience in specialties such as emergency medicine, orthopedic trauma, general and cardiothoracic surgery, and inpatient internal medicine.

Kayla’s philosophy of care is to treat the whole person rather than only the illness or injury that brought them in. Her holistic approach and focus on individualized care align with the Southcoast Health mission statement “more than medicine”. This philosophy highlights that although two injuries may be similar, patients require individual treatment that will be best for them and their particular circumstances.

Kayla was inspired to become a Physician Assistant in Trauma/Acute Care Surgery after her grandmother fell and required emergency surgery to save her life. Kayla wants to use her medical knowledge and skillset to continue making a difference in her patients’ and their families’ lives. Her passion for helping others lead Kayla to complete two of her clinical rotations in American Samoa, providing health care to the communities of the South Pacific.

At home, Kayla is a volunteer for the American Heart Association. This cause is close to her heart as a few of her family members suffer from heart disease. Throughout her time in graduate school, she worked with the organization closely to promote heart health and raise awareness of this disease in the community. In her downtime, Kayla enjoys reading and living an active lifestyle. Some of her main hobbies include soccer, pure barre, golfing, and skiing.

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.
