Steven M. Dawson, MD, is a board-certified otolaryngologist and has been practicing in Kirkland for over 28 years. His almost three decades of experience has armed him with a vast knowledge of ENT conditions focusing on the diagnoses and treatment of chronic sinus and nasal issues.

His late father and brother were both doctors in Iowa, and his dad strongly encouraged him to follow in his footsteps. He decided to go into otolaryngology because he loves the idea of helping people solve the problems that are keeping them from enjoying life.

Dr. Dawson has been active in the local medical community as a former Chief of Surgery at Evergreen Hospital. He is professionally interested in minimally invasive sinus surgeries and the most recent up-to-date imaging and surgical techniques.

As a true Seattle sports enthusiast, Steven is a Seattle Seahawks season ticket holder and a strong supporter of bringing back the Seattle Supersonics. He enjoys golfing, skiing, hiking and fishing.

Steven Dawson has been recognized by Seattle Met as a Top Doctor for many years running including 2019 and 2020.
