Robert Dorman, MD, PhD, FACS, is a board-certified general surgeon at UT Health Jacksonville. Dr. Dorman considers patient education a must. “I believe the patient must be fully informed of their treatment options, especially non-surgical options, so they can feel comfortable with their decisions.”

Additionally, building strong patient physician relationships is important to him. “Patients put their trust in me, and I hold that trust in the highest regard,” Dr. Dorman said. “I went into surgery because I enjoy operating, but I pay particular focus to bringing the patient through the pre-operative and post-operative phases of care as well. It is at these times that the most important aspects of the patient physician relationship are formed.

In his free time, Dr. Dorman enjoys running, weight lifting, reading, cooking and long walks on the beach with his beautiful wife.

In December of 2021 I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer HER2 +. He placed my Mediport in January 2022, and on May 27, 2022, Dr. Dorman performed my Bilateral Mastectomy at UT Hospital in Athens, Tx. I was very suprised that a smaller hospital, out of the way, had such an amazing and capable surgeon and the means to perform a surgery of this magnitude! The attention to detail and overall experience was wonderful! He showed compassion and was very supportive through this entire process. I am confident in his knowledge and capability as a Surgeon and would highly recommend him to anyone! After my surgery I received the BEST NEWS of all from him, pathology came back and it was negative for cancer! Through this entire journey he stuck with me, encouraged me and With his support I can proudly say, I Finished The Fight and WON! #breastcancersurvivor

The office space was very nice and the personnel were cheerful and well groomed for their position. Dr. Dorman was very thorough and straight forward. He gave us great advice. I would recommend him to anybody who is needing a general surgeon.

Dr. Dorman has been my physician for 30 years or more. He has always been professional, caring, and above all, knowledgeable.
