Susan Dodd, MD PLLC

Focused on providing the best in women’s healthcare

There is perhaps no healthcare relationship that is as important to a woman as the one she has with her gynecologist. This is the doctor she will visit, well or sick, at least once a year. This is the doctor who will play a key role in her health throughout her life, ranging from annual exams, to treatment of a variety of disorders, to menopausal counseling. This is the doctor with whom she may discuss her most intimate concerns.

This month we’re pleased to feature Dr. Susan Dodd, a native of Sevier County who has practiced obstetrics and gynecology since 1987 and who now focuses exclusively on gynecology. Dr. Dodd is a highly accomplished physician, professor, and community volunteer ith a true passion for her profession: providing quality and personalized women’s care in a welcoming environment. It’s no surprise she’s been recognized as a “Top Doc” in Cityview magazine annually since 2002, as a YWCA Tribute to Women human services honoree, and as a Girl Scout Woman of Achievement, among other honors.

The power of listening
One of the things for which Susan Dodd is most known – and appreciated – is her gracious bedside manner. She’s a natural listener who puts her patients at ease as they share their concerns. Dr. Dodd is incredibly thorough while being very easy to talk to and is known by patients and colleagues alike for her down-to-earth approach.

It’s not a job – it’s a passion
“Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life” is a quote that has been attributed to Confucius and perfectly describes Dr. Susan Dodd. For her, gynecology is not a job – it’s a passion. She truly enjoys practicing medicine and helping her patients lead healthy lives, and it shows.

The latest in medical knowledge and treatments
Along with her noteworthy patient focus and bedside manner, Dr. Dodd stays abreast of all current recommendations on the full range of women’s health testing, and she explains potentially intimidating medical information in terms her patients can understand. In addition to board certifications from the National Board of Medical Examiners, the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology, and the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonography, Dr. Dodd is a published author of papers on numerous women’s health topics in medical journals.

Teaching and mentoring young physicians
As an assistant professor at the University of Tennessee Medical Center since 1987 and also as a clinical assistant professor at the James H. Quillen College of Medicine at East Tennessee State University, Dr. Dodd stays on the leading edge of medical knowledge and treatments. Among her many recognitions, one of which she is most proud is being honored with the chief Residents Award for Excellence in Teaching at the University of Tennessee Research Memorial Hospital.

Convenient surgical privileges at multiple hospitals
Dr. Dodd’s new office is located on Parkwest Boulevard in West Knoxville, but she enjoys surgical privileges at UT Medical Center, Parkwest Hospital, and Tennova. This gives her patients a full range of options regarding hospital care should they need surgical treatment.

Accepting new patients
When practicing obstetrics in addition to gynecology, Dr. Dodd had a full patient list and was not accepting new patients. With her current focus exclusively on gynecology, Dr. Dodd is now accepting new patients for the first time in years and welcomes your transfer to her practice. Most insurance providers, including Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna, Humana, and United Healthcare, are accepted. More information, including a records transfer form, is available at or by calling 865-690-7677.
