Dr. Brennan Dodson, MD
Dr. Dodson completed his training with the Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at the University of Colorado-Health Sciences Center (Denver, CO) in 2006. During this 5-year residency program, he was afforded excellent training through assignments at major tertiary referral centers including University Hospital, Denver Health (General) Hospital, and the Children's Hospital. He earned his MD from the University of Oklahoma-College of Medicine (Oklahoma City, OK) in 2001. Prior to medical school, Dr. Dodson graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts from the Colorado College (Colorado Springs, CO) with a major in in Anthropology in 1996. "My wife and I became interested in Bozeman after winter skiing trips to visit my wife's sister and her family who have lived in Bozeman since 2003. After living and training in Denver for 5 years, we were looking for a community with a slower pace and easier access to the mountain sports we both love. Being an avid fly-fisherman, hunter, and skier, I welcomed the opportunity to develop a practice in a locale where I could pursue my interests outside the office. Since opening the practice in August 2006, I have been blessed with a thriving practice and two children, who keep my wife and I continually entertained and challenged!"

On behalf of me and my family, the thought of a hometown doctor that takes the time and the extra mile is long lost, until we met Dr. Dodson. We’ve lived all over the U.S. We have had several of doctors and you by far set the standards for the hometown doctor. With great appreciation!

Have a history with this DR. he operated on both my children and did a good job. Saw myself for gland issues twice in the last two years.....I had an emergency and just told me they could get me in in 60 days!
Bozeman, MT |
I recently had my tonsils removed and I was very scared to have the surgery done due to stories of the recovery being awful for older patients. He was very encouraging and explained everything that was going to happen in surgery day and what to expect during the recovery. When I had concerns during my recovery the staff and Dr. Dodson were very helpful,and gave me great advice and tips to get through my recovery as fast as possible.

The office staff is very pleasant and helpful. Dr. Dodson was straight to the point and only did what was needed, no nonsense. And I feel better than ever!

I had a great experience with Dr Dodson. He did a great job of educating me on my condition and clearly outlined the next step in treatment. Very efficient and professional office.
in Bozeman, MT |
I cannot speak highly enough of Dr. Dodson-he was very pleasant, answered all of my questions, and did a great job of communicating clearly his point of care in tackling the breathing issues I have been dealing with for years. Thank you all so much for your professionalism, helpfulness and friendliness. As a patient, that goes SUCH a long way in making me feel comfortable and confident in my treatment, I do not hesitate to speak VERY highly of your clinic. Thank you for the wonderful service!
Bozeman, MT |
Failed to make proper diagnosis despite showing classic symptoms of tumor. Heartless when proper diagnosis confined. Told me condition just required observation, but physician I was referred to for treatment said action was required immediately. Would not recommend him to anyone I cared about.
