Morbid-obesity, obesity-related diseases, general surgery
Board Certified in General Surgery
Dr. John Dockins is fellowship trained and board-certified in obesity medicine and general surgery, and has clinical experience with morbid obesity, obesity-related diseases, minimally invasive bariatric surgery and esophagogastroduodenoscopy procedures.
My role is to be fully committed to my patients throughout their weight loss journey. I believe that to be a skilled bariatric surgeon, you must be fully invested in all aspects of weight loss and the wellness journey. I want to help my patients lose weight so they can improve their overall health and enjoy a more fulfilling lifestyle.
I live in the Seattle area with my wife and two sons. In my free time, I enjoy playing basketball at local parks and boating on Lake Washington.
