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.

A native Oregonian, Dr. Sellars is excited to be returning to Oregon where he and his family can become part of the community

Dr. Sellars and his clinic staff are outstanding. I can't imagine getting better care anywhere else and I'm not the most cooperative patient. I challenge, I question and I want to be involved in my health care. Dr. Sellars is extremely patient with that and we make a good team even though I have a very complex health history right now. I couldn't get through it all without him and his support as well as Dr. [...] and the ER staff. You guys all are the best.

Dr. Sellars made a visit to a doctor's office enjoyable. We had a great conversation. I did not feel inferior at all. It felt like I came in to get advice from a "friend" who knows a little more about health. He even inspired me to become a doctor. Dr. Sellars seems like a man who puts himself in the same level of his patients. He makes you feel welcomed and he is also very acknowledgeable.
