Dr. Dorian was an anesthesiologist at St. Barnabas Medical Center for almost 30 years and was the Chairman of the Department for over ten years. He specialized in pediatric anesthesiology and pain medicine. Bob's greatest ability however, was in making everyone feel important and every moment special.

He was also an avid photographer, musician, magician, astronomer and triathlete. His talents were innumerable and inexplicable. Bob loved and is loved by his family, friends, colleagues, students and patients. Dr. Dorian loved his Armenian heritage and was a member of St. Mary Armenian Church in Livingston, N.J.
