He is by far the best Dr I have ever seen. He spent extra time in the consultation with me, his office is beautiful, his team is awesome, he offered multiple options and let me decide which one I wanted to try and wasn't pushy about it at all. He offered information on each procedure in a way tat I could understand it and why it would be helpful and then was able to do the non-invasive procedure in the office. I left feeling normal without the nerve pain / tingling I had for years. He is AMAZING

The single most compassionate, knowledgeable, Dr. in my 64 yrs . I have been made to feel less than human by most in this field..and they brand themselves as caring compassionate etc. For them it is more about THEIR power over you. Dr. DOHERTY really does care. And he knows his stuff! Seeing him as your doctor, when u are hurting, and scared, is stepping into the love and acceptance you SHOULD be allowed to feel with your Dr. He understands the Dr/Patient relationship is a 2 way street.
