A Federally Qualified Health Center


387 Quarry Street, Suite 100, Fall River, MA 02723

This office and providers are wonderful every time!

Just want to say thanks to all the staff, especially Dr. Katie Tavares, a very nice and good doctor.

 All good.

My PCP is a great person. Very good.

Dr. Mercado is the best doctor I have ever had.  She goes above and beyond.

The nurse practitioner was not my normal care provider, but helpful.

I have been a primary care recipient for over 12 years.  HealthFirst is number 1 in the Commonwealth.

You guys are great.

My latest appointment was an enjoyable visit. I now look forward to my visits as I am very aware of my health. I thank you for your time and help.

I am so grateful for the care of my primary care doctor, Gloria Mercado. I find HealthFirst to be first rate.

Great service, friendly phone staff

Indeed, a perfect place for health services. 🙂

Keep up the good work.


My kid’s provider was not available because there was a particular case where my kid needed to be seen. The provider went above and beyond to make sure we got the right answers and appropriate treatment. I was so grateful for their flexibility. Thank you again.

Everyone is super nice and helpful.

Amazing job!

Kevin Harkins is the best doctor in the facility and I am very grateful to have him as my doctor.

Thank you so much for everything, doctors!

Everything has been great especially telehealth.

I absolute love Doctor Kelvey. She is the best doctor I have yet to have. She listens to me and truly tries to understand the things I go through.

HealthFirst Family Clinic, the best for me and my Family. Thanks, HealthFirst, who take the best care for my Family.

So far, I’m glad I joined as a patient!

Satisfy with everything. Thanks.

Overall experience is great.

Please keep up the good work.

I really feel like the doctor I see at Health First is the best doctor at this time for me to be seeing. I feel as though he understands me and my issues better than any other medical professional I’ve seen in over 10 years. Dr. Harkins is very kind and helpful, plus I find talking to him about issues I may be having is easy to bring up and to talk about.

Just thank you all for your affection in serving us, especially the people who do the interpretation.


All the assistance is very good! Thank you, guys.


I recommend some of my friends to this location because they have a great service.

A great Doctor & Dentist Office!!!

Katie was very attentive , informative and took her time to answer my questions.

Great place and people. I have been going to this clinic in its many forms for over 45 years. I remember when it was on County St. and called Model City/Cities. ❤️❤️❤️

I called for a same day appointment. Receptionist told me to just come in as a walk-in because there was nothing available. Glad to say it was an in and out appointment for me. Love that I didn’t have to wait long to be seen for my kids.

Perfect treatment, they take good care of me and my family


Patient: Christine Phillips

Ms. Phillips praised Nurse Heather D. for going above and beyond her call of duty. Ms. Phillips went on to say when she was sick and could not leave the house, and Heather sent the police to her home for a well check. It was Heather that got the ball rolling for Ms. Phillips to receive the health care services she needed. Heather went as far as tracking down someone to go into Ms. Phillip’s home to care for her and offer her therapy. Ms. Phillips stated her belief that if it were not for Heather, she would not be alive today.

Ms. Phillips went on to say that Operators Lisa C. and Ashley S., as well as Kevin Harkins and Heather D., have given her reason to live. She came to HealthFirst because she did not have a choice and is not sorry she did. Ms. Phillips stated that when you go into HealthFirst, there are people from all nationalities and the front desk staff treats everyone with respect, and they are always smiling. Even Brian and Isabelle at Standard Pharmacy have been wonderful with Ms. Phillips.

Mrs. Phillips went on to say Kevin Harkins has been so wonderful, respectful, and caring. Kevin has done so much for Mrs. Phillips, and she is very grateful. The nurses are so professional and caring. The entire staff is very professional at HealthFirst. The staff members at HealthFirst are angels. Every single person who works at HealthFirst needs to know how important they are to the people they care for.
