Biography & Education


Coming from a family of educators, Alicia Ross, M.D., believes that one of her most important roles is that of educator. “I value the role I play in my patients’ lives. I try to spend time with each of my patients so that they understand their cardiac conditions and treatment options, and to help them make the best decisions about their cardiovascular health.”

Dr. Ross, a board-certified cardiologist, earned her medical degree from Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) in Portland. She completed her residency in internal medicine and fellowship training in cardiovascular medicine and advanced heart failure and transplant cardiology at OHSU. She is board certified in cardiovascular medicine and advanced heart failure and transplant cardiology.

During her fellowship, Dr. Ross’ training emphasized care for heart failure. She is the lead author of the Providence Vulnerability Index study, a program designed to help identify patients that may be at risk for hospital readmissions.

Dr. Ross was born and raised in Portland. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her young daughter as well as traveling with her family and cheering on the Ducks.

Patient Ratings and Comments
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. These comments are the views and opinions of patients and are not endorsed by or necessarily reflect the views of Providence.

I was referred to Dr. Ross by another by a friend in the medical field. I was very pleased. Excellent Dr. She explained all concerns in detail. Very pleased with her care.

She was thorough, courteous, positive and didn't try to sell me the store.

This is the second time I've seen Dr. Ross and the second time I can say I've received outstanding care! She is extremely knowledgeable regarding my condition and listened carefully to my concerns. I have complete confidence in her recommendations regarding my health.

I appreciate the combined care provided by the MD and Nurse Practitioner. I trust the collaboration.

Dr Ross is a new doctor for me. She is caring, kind, & knowledgeable. I'm very glad to be her patient

Love Dr. A. Ross, MD

Alicia Ross MD is the best Cardio Doctor I have ever had seen. DR Ross explains ever detail about every heart med she prescribed and interaction with my other Meds. We discussed clinical studies and really listens to my concerns regarding some of my Meds.I call in to discuss reactions of Meds and get an answer within a day or two. [...]

Dr. Ross is a very good doctor.

Dr. Ross is the best and make's me feel confident in the care I receive for my heart condition

difficult to get an appt with Dr. Ross.She is always busy and scheduling her is difficult.

There was a discrepancy in the percentage of blockage in one of my heart arteries. Dr. [...] stated, post procedure, that there ramined a 70 percent blockage and they would watch this blockage and make sure the prescriptions were reducing the blockage. Dr. [...] explained to both me and my wife that I had a remaining 70 percent blockage and it didn't meet criteria for applying a third stint. Dr. Ross contradicted this, during my annual checkup (this checkup) saying that her report showed that the remaining blockage is 50 percent (which is good news). My questioning of the discrepancy was disregarded without offer to review, confirm or verify which blockage was accurate. Upon reviewing documentation of the event and procedure, documents did not provide any technical information to verify percentage of blockage. I am very happy with Dr. Ross and comfortable with her and her staff.

Besides Dr. Ross, the nurse, [...], was also excellent. She was very personable and capable.

When I first met Dr. Ross in 2012 I really liked her & felt she listened and understood and left her office feeling informed of my health. Since 2015 I saw decline in her help or perhaps my knowledge grew & did not feel she listened or understood. After my open heart surgery I felt numerous things could have been discussed to relieve my concerns by letting me know what I was experiencing was normal or somewhat valid having never gone through this and understanding what was happening. It was like it was the first time she ever heard of a heart patient being dizzy or weird heart beats. I felt like changing doctors several times and still contemplating on changing doctors. I don't go to the doctor unless I need to. I don't even like to call unless I have real concerns. Dr. Ross has NEVER returned my calls to her office when I have called with health concerns. I even asked staff if she ever called or emailed & they sad she did. The most recent time was in Oct. 2016. Also in June 2016 (?) she said she would call me w/in a week to update on my echo - I NEVER got a call. So 3 months later I call & schd. appt. for Dec. - She never called. [...]

I usually have to call more than once to get information .

Dr. Ross is smart, articulate & compassionate. She explains at a level I understand & fully answered questions.

Dr. Ross is a very good & caring dr.

Dr. Ross does not do a good job of returning emails from MyChart. There was times tha she never responded or her nurses had to try to contact her.

She's the best!!

Dr. Ross [...] very good about explaining answers.

took too long to get on for an appointment. 2 months.

good experience

very professional and aware of my situation
