If Dr. Dougherty didn't have a great PA, I would seek another internist. It's not what he says, but how he says it. He can be flippant and seem uncaring. At one point when I was describing an issue, he did an open mouthed yawn. Luckily, I've never had to rely on him for anything other than routine.
