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.

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

[...] is 94 yrs. old and the doctors and Clinic have kept him going- everyone is so friendly to ,us - like family.

Your receptionist helped me get a hold of another part of the office. The sleep lab to get a new mask and it came finally soon after too. Thank you.

Dr. Ross recommended a Holter Monitor for 2 days. I have not yet heard from her about the results of the evaluation [...]

Dr Ross really cared about my health.

I was impressed that DR. Alicia Ross & her PA [...] knew how to help me & and sent me to the hospital immediately.

Have not heard from anyone concerning results of my heart exam. [...]

Dr. Ross was happy to see me, jovial, but very professional which put me at ease. She was clear and concise with her explanation of my condition and what the risks and advantages of immediately moving forward with tests and procedures. Her prescriptions were confirmed by the subsequent specialist and other acquaintances of mine who are in the same discipline. She and her staff deserve high marks.

alwayshave had good care with my providers

Dr. Ross is wonderful. Thorough and caring.

Because Er. ross had a firm grip on my prior medical history, she was able to speak coherently about what what was best for me. She assured us, and that was very comforting to my wife, and me as well. I can't wait to start my cardiac rehab with her! I feel very fortunate!!!
