Internal Medicine / Primary Care

About Megan Pereira

Megan received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing as well as her Master of Science Nursing – Family Nurse Practitioner from Simmons University in Boston, Massachusetts. 

She truly believes in patient-centered care, which means that as a provider she puts herself in her patients’ shoes to better understand their concerns, situation, fears, and current understanding of the matter at hand. 

She feels that sitting with her patients and allowing them to explain what is happening in their own words is something she enjoys doing and believes it not only helps improve the communication between patient and physician, but allows her to tailor explanations to a patient’s concerns in a way that they fully understand; with better understanding comes the empowerment to make informed decisions. 

She believes that this small gesture goes a long way in building trust with her patients. 

Megan’s own pediatric practitioner, who cared for her and her siblings for over 15 years, was the inspiration behind her deciding to become a Nurse Practitioner herself. The ability to form long relationships with patients and families is what made her decide to go into primary care. 

To her, Southcoast Health means being able to directly and positively impact the community she lives in. 

When not at work, Megan enjoys camping, hiking, and spending time with her husband and their dog. 

Megan speaks Portuguese and Spanish

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.
