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.

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.

Dr. Sellars was very through, gentle, and was a good listener. While I waited in the rm. he took the time to contact a neuroligist. He wanted to get his "take" on my heath situation and if a CT should be performed. I appreciated this!!My husband was there also and the Dr spoke to him alsoa nd listened to my husband's concerns.

Dr. Sellars is awesome when you can see him in person. Communicating with him [...] is frustrating and exceedingly difficult. You cannot get a response when you call! He does not check My Chart [...]. Every other specialist I have had [...] has been easy to get through to, usually within one hour.

To clarify, I feel Dr Sellars is already to heavily booked, they are always not on time. So, even though I'm really satisfied with him, I'm not recommending him to others, he has plenty of patients. I know you business is to keep your Dr's scheduled to the minute, but at the same time trying to keep us (patients) from feeling like just another work order. Years ago I finally gave up trying to reach his office by phone, it's a broken system, but, I now really prefer to use the online system, it's great. I must add that the online RX refill requests, now work like clockwork.

Dr Sellars has been my doctor for 12 years, he is so good that it is hard to get in to see him, but he always takes the time that I need. That is why I don't mind waiting for him because I know that I will get the time I need, when he is done with his prior patient.
