About Megan Cranston

Megan earned her Bachelor of Science degree from Xavier University as a Biology major. She then furthered her medical expertise earning a Master of Physician Assistant Studies at Bryant University.

Megan chose to become an Advanced Practitioner because of the impact the medical staff had on her when she was younger, as they always put in the extra time to understand her as a patient. Her philosophy of care centers around the patient, and that they dictate the plan of care. She believes it is important to outline different options for treatment, discussing the pros and cons of each.

Outside of work, Megan spends time walking with her two dogs, hiking, and relaxing at the beach.

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.
