Dr. Stevens was an occupant of Woodbury prior to its takeover by The Governor. He administered to the wounds he had received from his brother Philip and warned him to leave Woodbury as quickly as possible; that as a closed loop system, it was destined to self-destruct.
Dr. Stevens and his young assistant Alice treated all of the citizens of the town who were sick or injured, as well as those who participated in the arena duels despite his many protests. He didn't agree with the The Governor's views or beliefs, especially with what The Governor was doing with the town's newest visitors (i.e. Rick, Michonne, and Glenn). After treating Rick's severed hand, the doctor fled town with the aforementioned survivors, along with Alice and Martinez in order to escape the Governor's tyrannical rule. On the way out of the town, a woman by the name of Ms. Williams runs into Stevens. She informs him that her son, Matthew, has a fever. The doctor sadly tells her to make an appointment later, knowing that he will never be back in town.
- Zombies (Alive)
Dr. Stevens barely made it out of the town before he was bitten by a zombie. He was the first one over the fence but a walker came up from behind him and bit him. As he was dying, he begged Alice to continue his work by taking care of the group.

Alice was Stevens' assistant. Alice was sure Stevens wanted a relationship with her, but thought that he was too old for her. Alice is noticeably saddened by Stevens' death.
Rick and Stevens talked often in the hospital, and might have been good friends. Rick also seemed sad, when he informed Michonne the 'Doc' had been killed.
Martinez and Stevens were good friends.
They seemed to be on good terms. Although he didn't seem upset, he was greatly shocked after Eugene stabbed him, and panicked when he was unable to save him.
