*Dr. Dozier is the BEST dr. I have had for follow up after completing some excellent care for cancer treatment. He did a very thorough exam and gave my daughter and me a very clear explanation of everything.

He was the most competent, reassuring and friendly doctor that I have had for a long time - if I had to have more surgery, I would certainly ask for him.

Although I was born in England while my father was stationed there with the United States Air Force, I have strong family ties to South Carolina and spent most of my youth there, as well as college and medical school. My wife and I met in Charleston at an art gallery. Soon after we married, we ventured out to the Bay Area of California for my surgical training. It was there that my son was born. My brother has lived in Portland for many years and we have always enjoyed visiting his family in Oregon. Thus, Salem was the perfect place for us to relocate when our time in California was complete.

About my practice

As a general surgeon, my broad practice includes treating conditions (including cancer) of the GI tract (esophagus, stomach, small bowel, large bowel, anorectal, gallbladder, and spleen), abdominal wall hernias, skin and soft tissue lesions and masses, breast disease, and some thoracic (chest) and vascular surgery. My experience and practice includes minimally invasive surgery (laparoscopic surgery) as well as some endoscopy. My aim is to always attempt to apply minimally invasive techniques when appropriate.

How I thrive

As Kaiser Permanente members for many years (our son was born at a Kaiser Permanente Hospital), we appreciate Kaiser Permanente's promotion of mental, physical, and spiritual health. Salem has been a very enriching community. My wife has a background in art history, so we enjoy all of the wonderful arts the Salem area offers, including the many galleries downtown and the Art Festival. I exercise daily and enjoy hiking with my son. We all enjoy the abundance of fresh, local produce available, especially the berries!
