Family Medicine / Primary Care

About Nicole Gifford

Nicole received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Worcester State University in Worcester, Ma. She then went on to obtain her Master of Science in Nursing from Chamberlain University in Addison, Illinois.

She believes that preventative medicine is the best approach to maintaining health and wellness. She utilizes multiple modalities of therapies based on the patient and their input on their care to maximize the patient’s health and prevent illness; always working with her patients and making them a contributing member of their healthcare team. 

While working as an RN, she noticed that many patients were repeat admissions. That sparked her interest in becoming a Family Nurse Practitioner. In doing so, she could work in preventative medicine and help in the prevention of patients being required to be hospitalized for chronic illnesses. Working in Family Medicine allows her to work with a variety of patients from across the lifespan. 

Having grown up in Southeastern Massachusetts, and having been a patient herself of Southcoast Health her entire life, she feels that Southcoast Health means serving the community that she lives in and being a part of its improvement. 

Nicole loves sports and played soccer throughout her undergraduate education and continues to enjoy watching and playing with friends. When not at work she enjoys hiking, walking, and kayaking.

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.
