  • Asked me if I wanted my blood pressure taken instead of telling me she was going to do it.Provider spoke slow and listened

  • Shannon Ferreira, she was very professional and supportive. I couldn't have had anybody better with the problems I was having with my stomach. Thank you.

  • None. Everyone was great!

  • I really appreciated Shannon's attentiveness she really heard me out.

  • Good visit with Provider NP Shannon Ferreira. She was very attentive to my medical needs and pleasant to talk to. Thank You

  • First thing I noticed was how organized everything seemed to be. My check in was simple and the receptionist was wonderful. When I went into the back of the office everything was so efficient and well explained whether visually by what you had on the wall, or by the person I was dealing with it. I was just impressed with how clean everything looked and how the people who dealt with me did their job. I would recommend your facility to anyone.

  • Shannon explained things so well to me. She answered questions I hadn't even through to ask yet. She gave me a lot of good info about my health issue so that I feel much more informed. She was very pleasant and I'm so glad to have seen her. Thank you Shannon.

  • No problems

  • Everything was good everyone was super friendly and helpful

  • Shannon F was excellent explaining the proccess to us.[Name] was excellent with appointments scheduling and follow up information

  • Seen in a timely manner, provider and support staff friendly and professional.

  • The wait was not too long. Nurse practitioner was pleasant and helpful.

  • Shannon was wonderful. The only thing is she prescribed a medication that cost $631 and I thought she should have known it was that expensive and I couldn't afford that or just gave me a choice of all the medications that would do, the job. Well, but overall she was wonderful.

  • Shanon the nurse practitioner gave answers to questions thoroughly and in terms I could understand

  • Since Dr. Watson was booked so far out the receptionist offered to put me on a waiting list for an opening sooner with a Nurse Practitioner. I was pleased to get a call for an appointment the very next day. Shannon listened to my concerns and ordered appropriate follow up testing. Thankyou.

  • The doctor really listened to my concerns and never interrupted me. She answered all my questions and I felt she was very sincere.

  • Shannon Ferreira was very personable, courteous, and easy to talk with about my medical problem. I felt very comfortable having conversation with her.

  • Provider was very informative. Have had this problem for quite some time, and seems difficult to diagnose. Will follow provider's instructions.Have seen other Doctors with this issue.

  • The NP was excellent.

  • Miss Rerreira was very good kind to explain what the necessary things I should do to keep away from the acids that were giving me problems and amicable to give me information. This please remember to handled. I recommend her and the Dr. [Name] [Name] to anyone very good.

  • I was taken in right away,Xray was quick

  • Shannon, who is the Nurse Practitioner was awesome. She understood my frustration and gave her all to compensate for that frustration that wasn't her problem to begin with. She took every step to figure out what's wrong as fast and efficient as possible, instead of trying only 1 guess at a time and then waiting 2 months before the doctor sees me and tries to pick up with another guess. Shannon looked at what all the different possibilities could be and put in tests and procedures to explore everyone of them until they know what's wrong with my abdominal pain and liver pain with some naciousness. I wish my primary care did what Shannon does and didn't take a year and a half to get a quarter of the way than what Shannon has covered.

  • Fair

  • NP was very good no problem here at all

  • I had an appointment with Shannon Ferreira and she was very knowledgeable and caring about my concerns. She is very compassionate and easy to talk to. I would definitely recommend her to anyone.

  • Ms Ferreira did an excellent job explaining my IBS and I felt better knowing it was normal after I left.

  • NP was very knowledgeable, and very caring for my health needs.

  • The PA was very knowledgeable and helpful.

  • If I am talking about the way the appointment was handled on the treatment that I received. It was, it was excellent. My concern. What makes it difficult is that I didn't really understand what the appointment was was full. And you know why I needed to, you know, come up to Fall River and have that appointment. So if it's that, that causes me to answer some of the questions down a little bit. The, the actual provider was excellent. She did a great job. It just, I don't understand what it was that I was up there for if you can understand that. Thank you.

  • The nurse practitioner listened to what I had to say and answered all my questions. She was very thorough and easy to talk to.

However, she came up with a plan to see what more can be done, in actually finding out wether I have a chronic condition or something that has to be looked at closer with a Infectious Disease Dr.

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.
