Dr. Robert Morse believes that a physician should be not only a provider of care, but also a teacher. “Your cardiovascular health is a collaborative effort,” he says. “I’ve found that an educated patient will generally do better.”

In his practice, Dr. Morse emphasizes preventive care. “Prevention is the best treatment,” he says. He gives all of his patients as much time as needed at each appointment to ensure they get the quality of care they deserve.

He completed his internship and residency at William Beaumont Army Medical Center in El Paso, Texas, and a fellowship at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C.

About Our Survey

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.

I love the Providence system. You have amazing office people and wonderful practitioners. I have to see the ACC clinic OFTEN, and all of the pharmacists are friendly, helpful, and go the extra mile in being aware of the meds I'm on, their interactions, my allergies, and every facet of my med management.

Dr. Morse is my heart doctor. I see him annually for a heart checkup. I have called about heart issues in the past. I have always gotten immediate help and followup. Excellent care.

when I asked to have instructions or suggestions repeated, Dr Morse was very oatient and understanding. he displayed a very high amount of empathy for my fears. when I've used secured email to ask additional questions, I've received same day answers and a definite compassion for my confusion. I am well-pleased with the care I get at the heart clinic, from Dr. Morse, Nurse [...], and [...] at the front desk. top marks to them all.

Dr Morse has provided excellent care since my initial hospitalization and now has provided a referral to another provider since I have moved out of his area. He is thourough, listens carefully, and is open to any questions I may have. His care saved my life (literally).
