Biography

As a primary care physician Kevin Sellars, M.D., strives to support patients in achieving their health goals, works in partnership with them and serves as their advocate.  In his practice he emphasizes "quality of life," noting that "medicine is not about disease; it is concerned with how we can use our knowledge and skill to meaningfully enhance the quality of life regardless of someone's condition."

For Dr. Sellars, forming a relationship with his patients in which he can work with them to provide optimal health care and support through difficult times is the most rewarding aspect of his work. "Every patient is someone's loved one and should be treated not only as I want to be cared for, but as I want my own family to be cared for," he says.

Dr. Sellars earned his M.D. at Ross University School of Medicine. He completed his internship and residency at Roger Williams Medical Center/Boston University School of Medicine and was chief medical resident at this institution.

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.

because he is a stellar awesome doctor, it is difficult to get a timely appointment with him if it is urgent. then I get referred to someone else which is not always satisfactory partly due to a chronic long standing health issue not yet resolved.

Dr Sellars does a great job at listening and looking at things in a very realistic way. I don't have negative things to say about him. I will say that trying to speak to someone in the office gets extremely frustrating. I understand that they are busy but that whole process shouldn't be so difficult!

Dr Sellers is the only primary care doctor out of the 4 I have seen that I would want as my primary doctor care doctor. He is far better than any of the others. I have only seen Doctor Sellers twice so my opinion iis based on only those visits in addition to a strong recommendation from another doctor friend of mine (now retired). I would not expect my opinion to change.

I think Dr. Sellars is the best doctor at the facility and have recommended family members to him. He is always patient, listens and answers questions, and treats you as a person. I hope he never leaves Providence. He is what a doctor should be and many could use him as an example.

[...] My appointment was originally scheduled for October [...] and I knew from my last visit with Dr.Sellars that before my [...] appt. I needed to do a fasting blood test and urinalysis, so around [...] I called Dr.Sellars office to see if orders had been sent to the lab yet so that I could get these tests done, to which the staff member replied, "oh, you're on my list to call, because Dr.Sellars will be out of the office [...] and we need to reschedule your appt." The problem was, the first appt. available wasn't until Nov. [...]. I said that was ridiculous, I had scheduled my Oct. appt. 6 months ago. She replied that was still the first appt. available, or I could see someone else, or the physician's asst. [...] As it turned out, she called later in the day and said there was a cancellation for the next day, which I took and did my required tests the morning of my appt. when of course my test results were not available. My point is, that it is becoming apparent that Dr Sellars certainly can't do any more than he already does---but it's obvious there's not enough staff.

Dr Sellars is compassionate and easy to talk with. he is very busy and it is not usually possible to get an appointment with him when I have need for an unscheduled appointment. sometimes the "intake" people at the initial contact station are very unhelpful.

My experience [...] was the most attention I have had in a year. I waited a year for Dr. Sellars and it was worth it- I had seen another doctor for a knee injury with not much attention- I would recommend Dr. Sellars, but he has his plate full of patients- I'm happy I saw him
