Why Choose Dr. Dodson?
Because he's terrific with children...
“I would highly recommend Dr. Dodson to any patient for any ENT issue (and I have). He assisted my 3 year old daughter with removing her tonsils and adenoids and was terrific with children! He also helped me out with my allergy issues. Also a very friendly staff! Thank you!” – Jill B
Because he is a skilled surgeon...
“I recently underwent extensive sinus surgery and had the good fortune to have been under the care of Dr. Brennan Dodson. His skilled surgery produced excellent results and I feel confident I will have a winter free of antibiotics and can return to my active lifestyle. Dr. Dodson and his caring staff consistently responded quickly to my questions and concerns. I give them all my gratitude and highest recommendation.” - Mary N.
"I highly recommend Dr. Dodson as an ear, nose, and throat doctor. I had such a great experience with Dr. Dodson and his staff. He and his staff are true professionals with good clinical skills and they provide timely follow-up care as well. Patient care comes first in this practice. Bozeman is lucky to have such a great Doctor." - Yvonne
Dr. Dodson is professional...
“I was not familiar with Dr. Dodson until he was recommended to me as a surgeon who could help me when I was diagnosed with a malignant melanoma on my temple. He had to deliver some bad news and some good news each time he did it with care, understanding, lots of research and a path forward. He always made me feel confident and encouraged through two separate surgeries. Dr. Dodson’s attitude and professionalism extends to his staff that was always responsive and helpful.” Connie B.
"I cannot thank you enough for your great care. After 10 years of chronic sinus infections (every 4 weeks); I am now 3 months free of them! Thank you! You and your staff are awesome!" Tanya G.
