Biography & Education

As a cardiac electrophysiologist, Dr. Scott Brancato emphasizes good communication, patient participation, and collaboration when managing a patient's health care. "I am one part of a health care team that includes the patient," he says. "We all work together to do what's best for the patient's health."
In his practice, Dr. Brancato believes his most important role is to serve as an expert available to provide solutions for patients with heart rhythm disorders. "As a cardiac electrophysiologist, I enjoy helping patients understand the complexities of their heart rhythm disorders and treatment," he says.
He earned his medical degree at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., and completed his internal medicine internship, residency, and cardiology fellowship at Brown University and Rhode Island Hospital in Providence, RI. Dr. Brancato went on to complete additional medical training in clinical cardiac electrophysiology at Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, MA.
Dr. Brancato was raised in Washington, D.C., and moved to Portland with his wife, who is a native Oregonian. He is delighted to be in the Northwest where he enjoys running, skiing and cycling.

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

Providence Health & Services Patient

overall very satisfied
Providence Health & Services Patient

I like more collaboration and engagement from my providers. I did get the care I needed and Dr. Brancato did answer my questions; it just felt impersonal.
Providence Health & Services Patient

My cardiologist suggested I visit an [...] at this practice. They gave me the earliest appt possible, which happened to be with Dr Brancato, and was about 3 weeks out. I did not choose the dr. I was not satisfied with his demeanor and the way he talked with me. I don't feel like I learned any more about the procedure I had been sent to learn about.
Providence Health & Services Patient

Providence Health & Services Patient

I was learning for the first time about a new and serious health condition. Dr Brancato did the best he could be explain things to me, and has since been very forthcoming in his responses to questions I've asked him through the my chart website.

It was disconcerting to watch Dr. Brancato enter data as I spoke. I don't think he was transcribing my comments. :-) He seemed to be following what I said, I think.

Things always go well here. I have no concerns and feel I am getting great care.
