About Melissa Cabrera

Melissa earned her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Rhode Island College in Providence, Rhode Island. She then went on to obtain her Master of Science, Nursing (Family Nurse Practitioner) from the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Services in Boston, Massachusetts.

She decided to further her studies and become a Nurse Practitioner because she wanted greater autonomy in assisting her patients with decisions regarding their health.

Her personal philosophy of care is to always strive to provide individualized, holistic, and patient centered care; always treating her patients with the same level of care and respect that she herself would want to receive.

Melissa’s decision to specialize in cardiology was largely influenced by her having seen the positive impact that cardiologists have had on her own grandmother’s health and wellness. Specializing in cardiology allows her to make a positive difference in the lives of other cardiac patients.

To her, Southcoast Health is a community centered health system that provides excellent care to its community. This was a major factor in her wanting to be a part of Southcoast Health; she is able to give back and care for patients in the same community she grew up in.

When not at work, she enjoys strength training, watching movies, hiking, reading, and traveling.

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.
