John Dolan, DO
The most rewarding part of my job is the opportunity to help others – to provide guidance and assistance in a person’s time of need. It is particularly rewarding when I can use my training and experience to expand the understanding for my patient and to lessen the burden for my patient. I am excited and honored to join this group of physicians and build a neurology practice at Maine’s premier physician-owned and -operated medical group to serve the community.
I was drawn to medicine and neurology, in particular, from a love of finding things. The nervous system is a fascinating combination of structure and function. Learning the anatomy and specific role that anatomy plays in the expected performance of the system allows me to pinpoint problems and formulate interventions for my patients.
I am a proud 25-year veteran of the U.S. Air Force who served as a neurologist while on active duty and in the Air Force Reserves. I then joined the Maine Air National Guard, where I was a flight surgeon in the 101st Air Refueling Wing until my retirement last year. Go MAINEiacs!
Outside of work, my wife and I enjoy golfing, concerts, travel (usually to concerts) and our incredible blended family, which includes our two amazing grandchildren!
