Dr. Sean Dillon

Family Doctor

I was practicing as a nurse for 11 years in Newfoundland and Labrador and always knew I wanted to be a physician. Two of the best decisions I have made for my life and career are: completing my residency in Goose Bay and then choosing to call it home.

Limited resources can make working and living in rural areas challenging, but I think that's why I really enjoy it Whether I’m at work or at home, I’m constantly thinking on my feet and managing with what’s available to me right now. I get to collaborate with my coworkers all the time and the care and solutions we provide for our community and patients are so valuable because of how we work together.

I’ve lived in other cities across Newfoundland and Labrador and I’m amazed at the sense of the community the farther I go north. For six weeks, I get to run a clinic in Nain, the most northern and largest Inuit community in our province. I get to meet and help people who may not have access to healthcare as often as others and I consider it to be the highlight of my career.
